What to Expect

Have questions about how we worship or what you'll experience on Sundays? Learn more here.

YOU'RE WELCOME HERE.

On Sundays, we gather together as a community of Christ-followers, eager to learn from God's Word and welcome you, wherever you've been, wherever you're going.

Your children will have a place here. Children of all ages are always welcome in the service, with their families.

And don't worry, you won't be called out, pressured to join or embarrassed in any way.

QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR SERVICES?
WE'D LOVE TO ANSWER THEM

Proverbs

DURING WORSHIP

You'll receive a service folder as you walk into our sanctuary. This has all of the information you'll need to follow along with the service.

We'll sing. Both traditional and modern hymns - we love them all.

Many of our services are liturgical in style, meaning we follow the same outline each week, but the content changes based on the scripture and topics we're studying.

The service will be about an hour long, with a 20-25 minute sermon. The message is always rooted in the truth of the Bible, but it will also apply to your life, today.

FREQUENTLY WONDERED QUESTIONS

What kind of church are you?

We're a Lutheran church, part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. But more important than our affiliation is our set of beliefs - you can find those here.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code at Calvary. You’ll see some people dressed in jeans and a polo, and others will be dressed in khaki shorts and a t-shirt. Come as you are!

Do you celebrate Communion?

We do, during some of our services. We're a sacramental church, meaning that in Baptism and the Lord's Supper, God comes to us with forgiveness in very tangible means.

The Bible has convinced us that Jesus' body and blood are present in the sacrament and that receiving Communion together is a public statement of unity in our beliefs.

We'd never want to assume what your beliefs are, so for this reason, we ask that only members of Calvary and other churches we are in fellowship with participate in Communion during the service. 

If you'd like to learn more about Communion at Calvary and what we believe, we'd love to talk with you more about it. Simply contact us here and we'll get a pastor in touch with you!

What about my kids? Will they attend worship with me? What if they're loud?

We love having children in our services. Your kids are always welcome, and we try to make our services engaging and special for the kids, too.

We believe that worshipping together, as a family, is important for both children and parents.

But, we know that an hour-long sit can be tough for little ones. If your children are feeling restless, feel free to let them move about the narthex. If you need a quiet place for children to calm down and rest, benches are available in each of the restrooms, as well as changing tables. 

Both the narthex and restrooms have speakers to allow you and your children the opportunity to hear the service. 

Where are you located?
