 Treasury's Report - Calvary Lutheran Church and School continues to operate within the financial means of the organization and within the approved budget.  Bank of the West should be providing an answer by the end of the week regarding the increase in the line of credit.  Our goal is to have the credit available if and when we need to meet the needs of the organization.

Administration is expecting to receive the enrollment documents and fees for four additional students soon and four to six international students.  We are experience a growing interest in our preschool with a projection of an additional 10 to 12 preschoolers; making a grand total of 26 to 28 students.  Although Preschool has a license capacity for 49 students, Calvary has set a desired minimum enrollment of 25 and a cap at of 32 students.  Reaching license capacity of 49 students for the preschool will require additional staffing.   Enrollment targeting advertising is published on Facebook and the local newspaper circulation.

  • Re-structure Middle School grades for 2016 (completed

 The BoG would like to thank Dr C for his continuing dedication to our students; often going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure a safe, healthy, and stable learning environment for our students.  Much of the needed work to be completed this summer was completed by Dr C and a school parent.

Mission: To pray for those in need.
James 5:16 reminds us to "...Pray for each other so that you may be healed.
The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."
To communicate the prayer needs that are shared with the Church with those who have asked to be included on the "Prayer Chain." The Church office shall:
1. Gather a list of names and email addresses for those interested in praying for others in need. Add and remove names and emails as needed.
2. Receive Prayer requests for others in person or via electronic means
3. Communicate the Prayer Request via email as soon as possible.
The Church office shall make people aware of the availability of the Prayer Chain via Bulletin and Chronicle. Included in such notifications should be the Church email and office hours.
Prayer Requests should be sent to For requests made when the Church office is closed, the Prayer Chain message shall be sent on the next 'business' day.
In cases of emergency and when the office is closed, an email request should be sent to the Pastor at with the title "Emergency Prayer Request." Pastor shall then activate the Prayer Chain as soon as possible.
Due to previous issues resulting from the usage of the same email list by the School and Church, the Prayer Chain emails are sent via an entirely different email system. This change also means that the School Secretary has no way to send out Prayer Chain Requests.
