What to Expect
As an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Calvary practices infant baptism. This emphasizes our Theology of Grace; the understanding that Jesus chooses us. Children are welcome at the table for a blessing or to receive the meal. The decision of the parents to have their child receive First Holy is a very personal one. Together with the pastor, parents decide when it is best for their child ro receive. In some cases we have infanrts receive; other parents have decided to wait until their child is better able to understand the importance of this holy meal.
Confirmation is offered in a “Cluster” setting. This allows our Youth to become involved with a larger Faith Community as they deepen their faith and come to understand a particular Lutheran perspecitve under the guidance of Youth Ministers. As part of this three year program, the students attend “Campformation” at Lutheridge. Yearly they also attend exciting events that help them to bond and build their faith.
Children are important in the life of Calvary. We want to help you help your child grow spiritually. Start your family’s journey of faith with us!
Baptism begins your child’s walk with Christ.

Each summer, Calvary Lutheran, along with Spencer Presbyterian and United Methodist Church of Spencer, jointly offer VBS for the children of Spencer. Children from the neighborhood look forward to this exciting event, and parents are able to enjoy a bit of a break while knowing that their children are being nurtured in the Word of Christ and cared for with the loving hands of volunteers from our churches.
Children are welcome at Calvary. Here they have the opportunity to grow into the Spirit of Christ as individuals; they will not be lost in a crowd. Sunday school is offered from 9:45-10:30 and Pastor Cobb provides a Children’s Sermon each week. Our Nursery is overseen by volunteers that serve in the larger community as teachers. The small group atmosphere truly nourishes children in a caring and loving “Faith Family”.
