A sister congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod


Welcome to Calvary Lutheran Church. Join us for worship and Bible class this Sunday!

Calvary Lutheran Church is a confessional LCMS congregation in Elgin, IL that desires to share with all people the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified, doing so in the liturgical language of the Divine Service by proclaiming and teaching Christ’s Word in truth and by administering His Sacraments rightly.


nullVerbum Domini Manet in Aeternum, "The Word of the Lord Endures Forever."

Based on 1 Peter 1:25, this saying of the Lutheran Reformation is our certain hope as well. Join us as we gather around the Lord's enduring Word and Sacraments for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith.
