News and Information

October has been designated as Calvary Lutheran’s month to collect all types of nonperishable food items for Burke United Christian Ministries

The need is GREAT this year for food and the shelves at BUCM have been empty a lot this year. All nonperishable foods are needed. Please collect or purchase nonperishable food items, place them in a bag and then place them in the collection bins in the Old Fellowship Hall.  Money is also acceptable (and appreciated) for this project. Please make checks out to Calvary Lutheran Church and designate for BUCM or put cash in an envelope marked for BUCM and place in the offering plate during October.  Thank you!
