How to Participate in Online Communion:

The only preparation you will need is to have a portion of bread and/or wine (or grape juice) at hand, as you follow along. If you have bread, but no wine, or if you have wine, but no bread, that is just fine! It has always been the Church’s belief and teaching that Christ is present in, with, and under either of the elements of bread and wine. This is also an important thing to keep in mind at such a time as this!

Calvary Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), located at 39th Street & Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis, at the crossroads of four neighborhoods: Central, Powderhorn, Bryant and Bancroft.(Directions to church)

We are known as:

  • A smaller, more intimate Christian community with a strong commitment to living out God’s grace in our neighborhood.

  • A diverse, open and hospitable group from young to old, who welcome visitors, whether life-long Christians or those newly seeking a spiritual home.

  • A worshipping community with rich, lively, and historic liturgy that includes strong singing, eclectic music, quality preaching, and prayers for those both near and far.

  • A place of beauty, gathering in a sanctuary with majestic pipe organ and stained glass windows, a newly remodeled space with flexible seating and ritual centers crafted to befit a worshipping community of the 21st century.

  • A community of faith that welcomes people who may have felt excluded by the church because of cultural or ethnic background, race, physical or mental abilities, socioeconomic or family status, gender, age, or sexual orientation.
