Calvary Lutheran Mission Statement

Called by God's name,  
Responding to God's unconditional love for us,  
Empowered by the Holy Spirit,  
We at Calvary Lutheran Church Shall serve our local  
and global community in Jesus' Name

Providing for the hungry  
Receiving the downtrodden  
Opening our doors to serve  
Encouraging all to participate in service
Promoting spiritual strength and healing  
Within families and individuals.

ELCA History

A merger of three Lutheran churches formed the ELCA in 1988. They were The American Lutheran Church, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches and the Lutheran Church in America. Now 25 years later, the ELCA is a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world. We trace our roots back through the mid-17th century, when early Lutherans came to America from Europe, settling in the Virgin Islands and the area that is now known as New York. Even before that, Martin Luther sought reform for the church in the 16th century, laying the framework for our beliefs.

Missionary Support

We are sponsoring Luke & Ruth S. who work in the Southern Philippines doing Bible Translation work and are doing scripture engagement with an unreached people group.  Because of the sensitive nature of the area where they work, we’re limited in what we can write about them online.  For more information, you can go to the ‘World Mission Prayer League’ website HERE
