Communion at Home

When

We will celebrate communion during our online services on

  • Palm Sunday, April 5 @ 10 am
  • Good Friday, April 10 @ 7 pm
  • Sunday, May 3 @ 10 am

How to PRepare

  • We invite each participant and family to join the service
  • Have bread and juice ready for the participants in your household 
  • If you do not have grape juice, wine, or regular bread available at the time, we encourage you to improvise with what you have on hand.  

We encourage you to prepare yourself for communion with time to reflect on what communion means and time for self reflection, prayer, confession of sin, and thanks to God. 


Suggested Scripture readings

Luke 22, John 6, I Corinthians 11, Isaiah 53, and Psalm 51.

Baby Dedications

Baby Dedications are a beautiful opportunity for parents to celebrate with the church the gift of their child, commit themselves to raise their child to know Christ, and ask the church family to partner with them in that calling.   

Through May 10 we will postpone baby dedications to err on the side of health and safety. At that time we will re-evaluate our next steps. If you want to talk to a pastor about baby dedications, call 547-1897.  We will set an appointment to visit with you. Any services held will be in accord with Dept. of Health guidelines current at that time.


Baptisms

Baptisms at Calvary

Baptism is a beautiful celebration of our life in Christ. Typically Calvary offers summer and spring baptism services. In light of present health guidelines we will postpone any baptism services through May 10, at which time we will re-evaluate.  

What is Baptism?

Believers baptism is a public ceremony in which a follower of Jesus professes their faith in Jesus Christ and their unity with Christ, by faith, in his death, burial, and resurrection.  


Infant baptism is a public ceremony in which parents commit their child to the Lord’s care recognizing the Lord’s prevenient grace (enabling grace, grace that comes before hand). 


If you would like to visit with a pastor about baptism we would be delighted to discuss that with you. Call the office,

218-547-1897, and we will set up an appointment with you.
