Welcome to Mount Calvary Lutheran Church

One word to describe Mount Calvary, Janesville?  Jesus. 

Everything we do is centered on who Jesus is and what He does for us.

 As we worship Him, learn about Him, and are empowered by Him to care for others, we invite you to join us in the adventure of following Jesus.
