Valley Lutheran High School! Our teachers and staff are an amazing group of Christian educators.  Our students receive an excellent college prep program, grounded in our Lutheran tradition.  Please contact our school @ 602 230-1600 to learn about enrollment. 


Additionally, we recommend that all folks who pay Arizona income tax take advantage of the direct Tax Credit available for donations to the Valley Lutheran Scholarship groups.  Call the school office to learn more about providing scholarships to deserving students. It is a joy for our church to be in ministry with this wonderful school.


Now that you have learned a bit about us by spending some time here, will you please consider joining us soon because something very unique happens at Mt Calvary: whenever we gather, God shows up!  He brings us His gifts of the Word and His very own Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist ! Our job is to prepare to receive them.  We do that by confessing our sins and then immediately receive God's forgiveness.  We sing praises to God and offer our prayers and our offerings of money and time.  Either I or our Emeritus Pastor Del King preach a message about the Scripture Lessons proclaimed (recent sermons here), then those who have been taught the meaning of the Sacrament and who believe and confess what the Holy Scripture teaches about Holy Communion (this is my Body; this is my Blood) receive this Means of Grace and then we go back out into the world to encounter YOU!  Think about this and join us...we are very different....and perhaps God is calling you to learn more about us.


Jamie Holt, Pastor
