Our 2023 Annual Report is ready! Thanks to all who contributed!
To prepare for the January 21 at 10 am meeting, please take a look at 2023 Annual Report. You’ll find updates from Pastor Matt, Sister Sarah, the Church Council and Committees. The proposed budget is included here as well.
Cross of Calvary is a vibrant congregation with activities for all ages that provide opportunities to grow in faith, serve, and connect with others.
We are blessed to have two full-time ministers to assist us in living out our callings as followers of Jesus.
Our budget reflects our commitments to:
- children, youth and families
- visiting homebound members
- engaging in person and online worship
- mission through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)
You’ll notice that our proposed budget has gone up by about 10%. Reasons for this include: 4% inflation rate, salaries and benefits, property insurance, and rising cost of utilities.
The church council has confidence that with your continued support, we can meet our goals and continue to thrive.
If you have any questions, please contact a church council member.

In addition to our normal business, we will be considering a recommendation from the Council to call Sister Sarah Hausken as our Parish Minister. She is already hired by the congregation, but in order for her to maintain her status as a rostered Deacon (Minister of Word and Service) in the ELCA, she needs to be “called” by a congregation.
