About Us

Greetings! Calvary Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Calvary is the Lutheran church closest to Midway Airport in the southwest side of Chicago and was founded in 1922.

We are a community of individuals of different backgrounds invited to follow Jesus Christ. By God’s grace, we seek to live out our mission:

SHARE THE GOSPEL – PREPARE DISCIPLES – SERVE ALL IN CHRIST’S LOVE

We invite you to join us for worship on Sundays at 9:00 a.m., for Bible study the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 11:00 a.m., for special services during Advent and Lent, and for special outreach events as announced on our website and Facebook page.  Team Calvary, our youth group, has its own outreach and fellowship activities, and our choir rehearses Sundays after the worship service. Wherever you are on your faith journey, we invite you to accompany us as we endeavor to follow Jesus’s teaching and example in our lives as individuals, families, and a Christian community of faith.
