God’s Work Our Hands

In 2009 the ELCA invited congregations and ministries to submit videos for the Churchwide Assembly demonstrating how God’s calls to action and justice is being made known in our communities. Calvary Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, in conjunction with PCTV, submitted two videos demonstrating both a congregational ministry (Calvary’s Emergency Food Shelf) and an outreach partnership (the Urban Arts Academy).  These are two very real ways that God’s work is being made known at 39th and Chicago through the lives and hands of people at Calvary Lutheran Church.

What's New at Calvary

Calvary - through its Race & Equity Steering Committee - is coordinating film gatherings this summer. The events combine fun, food, and post-film discussions (especially from a race and equity perspective).Suggested donation of $5 per person, $8 per family. Everyone is welcome regardless of ability to pay!

Calvary invites and would enjoy having individuals and families connected to UAA and Masons/Eastern Stars join us:

  • Saturday, July 21, 5:30PM - Black Panther: In July, we plan on showing this winter’s recent blockbuster (parental advisory – rated PG-13). Again, all ages are welcome, with our hope that adolescents and young adults will particularly enjoy this one. The film has already received numerous accolades, including due to its willingness to focus on themes of race and identity. How do you see these themes in the film? Are they done well? What—if anything—more or different would you suggest?


The Calvary Emergency Food Shelf is available for area residents each Saturday from 9:00 - noon. There are eligibility requirements. Click on the "Food Shelf" link in the "Outreach" tab above, or call the church office at 612-827-2504 for more information.
