Mission Statement:  Christ living in us, us living in Christ.

Calvary Lutheran Church was formed in 1966 by a merger of Irene Lutheran and Salem Lutheran.  Turkey Valley Lutheran and Meldal Lutheran later joined Calvary.  Calvary's first service in our current building was held June 18, 1968.

Calvary is an Independent Lutheran church focused on ministering God's love to people through scripture, prayer, preaching, music and outreach within the community.  We are called the "Church on the Hill" and by that we seek to be a beacon of light where people come and feel safe and welcome through the light of Christ's love.  We preach and teach the gospel message of salvation through Jesus alone.  We are lead by the Holy Spirit to operate in the gifts that He has given us.  Come to Calvary and experience the refreshing love of God that is for all people.

Open hearts. Open minds. Open doors.

The Irene UMC is known as "The Little Brown Church" in Irene.  We welcome everyone of all ages.  We cherish the experience and traditions of our elder generations and we recognize the importance and future in our younger generation.  Come as you are.  Bring your family.  We love the sounds that children add to our worship service.

We share a faith in Jesus Christ, but the United Methodist Church encourages us to think for ourselves, so we don't necessarily share the same opinions about every faith issue or social concern.  And, there are lots of us: Just under 8 million United Methodists live in the U.S. and 1.5 million more worldwide.  We have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ.

The Irene UMC holds monthly family events - hayride, movie night, game night, etc.  We have a strong mission outreach with participation and donations locally and worldwide.  The church basement also houses the Irene Community Food Pantry.

Please  join us for Sunday worship service at 10:00 a.m. followed by Sunday school classes for both youth and adults (during the school year) at 11:00am.

Irene United Methodist Church Mission Statement:  As Children of God, we seek God's guidance to teach, reach out, share, care, and grow, as we strive to meet the needs of all of God's Children everywhere.
