Lent 2019

Weekly messages, will be presented using drama and story, will develop this year’s Lenten theme, “Searching.”

We are following tradition and will use the beloved  “Holden Evening Prayer” as our liturgy for worship.

Families are encouraged to bring children or grandchildren to Wednesday Lenten worship.  There will be a special Kids’ Time each week, with small theme-related gifts given to children who attend.

Children who attend Wednesday School are welcome either to stay at worship with their families, or to go to their Wednesday School classes after Kids’ Time.

Our schedule for Wednesdays during Lent is:

5:30 & 7:00 p.m. – Worship in the Sanctuary (with Holy Communion)

5:00 – 6:45 p.m. – Lenten Meal in the Fellowship Hall

Purchase a Fast Pass and save! Fast passes for Lenten meals will be sold in the Narthex on Sunday mornings. Purchase a pass and attend all six meals during lent…

  • $35 – adult pass
  • $80 – family pass (4 or more)

Cost for this year’s meal per Wednesday is $7 for adults (grade 6 and up), $5 for children (grade 5 and under).

Lenten dinners will be served by Calvary’s High School Students as they fundraise for their mission experience in Hartford, Connecticut.

Baptism Classes

We welcome all to the baptism font at Calvary! – both young and old, both members and non-members. At Calvary, baptisms happen in worship, both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

In preparation for baptism, we ask that you – the baptism family, and (if available) your sponsors – attend one of our Baptism orientation class, held monthly at Calvary. (Please note: you can attend the class anytime before the baptism event, even before your baby is born!)  We believe that this is important, not only to understand what it means to have your child baptized, but to connect with others who are in the same life-stage as you.

For more info, please read our Baptism Class Brochure. For any additional questions and to schedule your baptism, please contact Cathy in the church office (701-772-4897).

Here are the dates for our upcoming classes:

  • Thursday, February 21 at 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 21 at 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m.
