Calvary welcomes YOU:
"We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, and yo no hablo inglés.
We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, as old as Methuselah, skinny as a rail, or who could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor, who can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail.
We don’t care if you’re more Lutheran than Bishop Eaton, or haven’t been in church since little Joey’s Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.
We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters.
We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted, or enjoy a good cold beer every now and then.
We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion,” we’ve been there too. If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you’re welcome here.
We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are only here because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.
We welcome blue-haired people whether they are little ol’ ladies, punk rockers, or overly-zealous Marge Simpson fans.
We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.
We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … and you!"
