Our Mission: Equipped to go. . . love, serve, and be the people of God.
Our mission statement gives Calvary Lutheran Church a sense of direction.
The mission is based upon Matthew 28:19, which is often called “the great commission.”
Calvary as a part of the ELCA
Calvary Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) whose own mission statement, “marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered and sent for the sake of the world,” is a part of our foundation. As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus’ name throughout the world. More specifically, we are a part of the South Dakota synod of the ELCA.
