Textile Tuesdays (Tuesdays 9:00am) Year Round

A very informal group that is learning to make quilts and projects for charities. We share knowledge, fellowship and ideas. No prior experience is necessary. Some projects can be done at home.

Interest Based Groups


Faith, Family & Fitness (Saturdays 8:00am) Year Round

Do you love praising God and sharing time outdoors with family & friends? Every Saturday (rain, shine, ice or snow) we gather at Lake Ahquabi State Park Beach Shelter Area at 8am for devotion and discussion. We utilize the Portals of Prayer as our guide. We can't wait to see you there and grow in faith! 

Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) Quarterly

Mt. Calvary Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML), also referred to as Lutheran Women in Mission, is an affiliated unit of the LWML Des Moines East Zone of the Iowa District West-Missouri Synod. The purpose of the LWML is to develop and maintain greater mission consciousness among Lutheran women through mission education, mission inspiration and mission service. Funds are gathered for national mission projects through mite box contributions and also for projects within our own church. All women of Mt. Calvary can be members of LWML. Four meetings are held in a calendar year: January, April, July and October - 4th Mondays at 7:00pm. For more information, contact Laurel Cogswell, (515) 961-7201.
