Baptism

Baptism makes each of us a part of the family of God. Baptisms are usually done as part of a regular Worship service. Our Mt. Calvary family shares the joys and responsibility that come with Christian baptism with each family. If you would like to baptize your child at Mt. Calvary, we ask the following:

  1. Faith and belief in Christ on the part of at least one of the parents of the child who will be baptized.
  2. Reading the “What Every Lutheran Should Know About The Sacrament of Baptism” booklet.
  3. Family appointment with Pastor.
  4. Completing the Information for Baptism form and submitting it to the church office.

Adult Baptism

Mt. Calvary also baptizes adults. Baptisms are usually done as part of a regular Worship service. They can also be done at the lake if so desired. If you would like to be baptized at Mt. Calvary, we ask the following:

  1. Faith and trust in Christ on the part of the one being baptized.
  2. Reading the “What Every Lutheran Should Know About The Sacrament of Baptism” booklet.
  3. Attendance in new member class and/or appointment with Pastor.
  4. Completing the “Adult Information for Baptism” form and submitting to the church office.

Confirmation for 7 & 8th graders

Mt. Calvary offers a two year time of teaching with Pastor Buecheler in preparation for becoming an adult member of the church.     This class in 7 & 8 grades covers the basics of the Christian faith, fellowship and servant events.   Classes take place from September to May on Wednesday nights at 6 PM.

Adult Confirmation

We offer a new member class for people who want to learn more about faith in Christ. Some people also take to class to find our about  Lutheran tradition and have a refresher course of the teaching of Jesus. There are seven sessions. After completion of the new member class, participants are invited to become communicant members of Mt. Calvary.

Weddings

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. We are pleased to share this occasion with you. Mt. Calvary is not in the “business” of selling weddings. Rather, we seek to help couples launch lifelong marriages based on Biblical principles. We wish to do everything possible to make your day a pleasing and memorable experience.

At Mt. Calvary, we emphasize the importance of growing in the Christian faith as the best way to have a successful marriage. Therefore we ask couples who are contemplating marriage to worship with us at least three months. We also encourage you to read the Bible and spend time praying together.

Funerals

Mt. Calvary stands ready to assist grieving families with spiritual care, support, and by providing memorial services for those who have died. Funerals can be scheduled with our Pastor.
