Performances by Musicians from our Sister City, Altenburg, Germany
This concert is in celebration of the 23 year partnership between the County of Altenburg and municipalities and cities of the Western Piedmont. The Western Piedmont Sister Cities Association is providing our area with the rare opportunity to enjoy classical music performances by highly accomplished musicians from the Altenburg area, and Calvary Lutheran is one of the chosen sites for a concert. The audience is invited to meet the artists during a reception at the Community House (across the street) following the concert: refreshments and local music will be provided there.  If you have any questions, call the church office.

Worship is central to our lives as Christian people.  Worshiping together as a community is where and how we are “Called to Follow”. Our life together in worship is where we are fed by the Word of God in scripture, music, liturgy, preaching, and in the bread and wine of Holy Communion – the body and blood of the Word made flesh, Jesus our Lord.  The feeding is nourishment for our lives as we go into the places where we are “Sent to Serve”
Come, then and worship.  Come and hear, see and know that:
You are loved
You are forgiven
You are invited to come and eat!
