|Calvary Lutheran Church was established April 22, 1923 in Rio Linda, California, a suburb just north of Sacramento. We serve the communities of Rio Linda and Elverta as well as many communities in the greater Sacramento Area. Pastor Ron Zielske is serving as Interim Pastor.|
We see our mission as reaching out in Christ's love to both members and non-churched people through:
Worship: United in faith and hope, praising Father, Son and Holy Spirit, God's people gather strength from the Good News of Christ in Word and Sacrament.
Ministry in daily life: Rooted in God's grace, God's people help each other live according to God's commandments, trying to be signs of Christ's welcome and love in our homes, neighborhoods, work, schools, community, and the world.
AffiliationWe are part of Conference 8 (District B) of the Sierra-Pacific Synod of Region 2 of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Finding UsWe are located at 515 L Street in Rio Linda, at the corner of 5th and L streets. Our parking lot is entered from 5th Avenue.
How fortunate we are to know we can call on God and know He hears us. We at Calvary have abundant places and times to pray. Here are a few ways:
"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." Matthew 18:19
Our online devotion on Luther's Small Catechism.
A number of scriptural prayer resources have been gathered together for your reference and private study.
Another resource is called Sacred Space. It guides you through a 5-10 minute prayer session, in six steps (things like 'Coming into the Presence of God' and preparatory exercises) and centers on a short scripture passage chosen for the day (so it's a little different every day). The Irish Jesuits have produced it to help computer users to get into a habit of daily prayer.
The Moravian Church offers a simple daily text for individual or family devotion.For your own prayer request, contact our church office, or visit www.prayingchurch.org, the ELCA's prayer web site.
