Welcome to Calvary  Lutheran Church

A Note from the Pastor

Worship with Us

What matters most is your own devotion and worship practice. I hope that you will be able to rejoin us with your presence in weekly worship services. If this past year has brought a change in your own abilities to be out and about, make sure we know that. With in-person Sunday services and Campground opportunities we hope that there will be a style and time that you can make work for you to become part of the worshiping community. We do better together.

Come and add to ours your voice of praise and your hands of service. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper weekly and a place at the Table has been set for each believer. To God be the glory as those who enjoy the Northland come together. –Pastor Max

Come Down to the Lakeshore
Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. Mark 4:1
For those looking for a safe outdoor worship experience, come on down to the lakeshore! Our 52nd year of Summer Campground services begins Sunday, May 30, at 9 a.m. at Indian Shores RV & Resort and 10 a.m. at Clear Lake State Forest Campground, both off Highway 47 southeast of Woodruff.

We continue to follow local, state and CDC guidelines on safe gatherings. Masking and distancing is highly recommended but is now optional for fully vaccinated people. To mask or not to mask is up to each individual’s comfort level. Services at Indian Shores are held at the outdoor chapel, weather permitting. Seating is on concrete benches so you might want to bring a blanket or cushion to sit on.

Services at Clear Lake are held next to the main boat landing but you won’t need to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on as many permanent memorial benches have been donated and installed. Services will be cancelled in a downpour but we have a hearty bunch who show up with umbrellas when it is only drizzling! A vehicle sticker is required to enter the State Campground.  All are safely welcomed.
