Education

We encourage both children and adults to spend time learning and growing in Christ. We offer Sunday School for children (ages 3 and up) and several different adult Bible Study options each Sunday morning, as well as other educational opportunities throughout the week. The current schedule is listed below. We have Women's studies, Men's studies and other small groups.

Youth Sunday School

Sundays at 10:30 a.m. (Ages 3 to High School)

Sunday School has a new look, new activities, new lessons, new fun. Please bring your students and encourage them to participate every Sunday from 10:30 to 11:30. We will have 2 or 3 levels for classes depending on our turnout and hope to add more if needed. Any high schoolers interested is starting a class please let Pastor or Paula Horst know. We hope to see you all this Sunday!

Adult Classes

Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in Parish Hall

Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? Based on Pastor Matthew Richard’s book of the same title, this video series and discussion (led by him) will explore some of the false images of Jesus that tempt Christians to turn from the Lord Who actually comes to us. The books for this study are available — check in the office if you wish a copy.

Men's Bible Study

Wednesdays at 6:30 a.m. at Gebbys - 726 E War Memorial Drive, Peoria Heights

Isaiah 40-64 – “The Book of Consolation” Join us as we read through the portion of Isaiah written for exiles before they were even born! God promises deliverance to them – and promises a greater deliverance with the Messiah, and points us all to the final deliverance that comes the Last Day.

Lunch Together & Bible Study

Thursdays at Noon in Parish Hall

We’ve added a little extra to our Thursday lunches: a Bible study. We gather for lunch at Noon, eat and visit for a while, and then read a chapter of Scripture together and talk about it.

We’re reading the Acts of the Apostles together. Come join us!

Education at Mt Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church
Pastor Barry Long

Concordia Lutheran School

Mt. Calvary is proud to support Concordia Lutheran School, a kindergarten through eighth grade school located on Glen Avenue in Peoria. Since 1959, Concordia has been providing top-ranked academics in a Christ-centered, nurturing environment.

As one of three sponsoring congregations, we are pleased to offer financial support as well as our prayers and pastoral involvement on campus. If you’d like information about current tuition rates and financial aid for families, please call the church office at (309) 688-4321.

Several of our church members are Concordia teachers. We thank the following individuals for the dedication and commitment to these young students: Elizabeth Tagge and Brooke Barr.

Christ-Centered Education
At Concordia Lutheran School, God’s Word is the foundation for everything we do. Not only do we have weekly Chapel and Bible memory work, but we also pray daily and incorporate the Gospel into our curriculum.
Top-Ranked Academics
With dedicated teachers, the highest and top quality resources, we provide students with every opportunity to succeed academically. Starting in kindergarten and going through eighth grade, children are challenged to perform at their optimum potential. The results speak for themselves. Time after time, our eighth graders leave Concordia equipped to move right to the top of their high school classes.
Award-Winning Extra-Curricular Activities
From optional violin instruction for kindergarten students to competitive junior high basketball teams, we provide access to a full range of activities for nearly every interest. In addition to sports and music, we also offer a rich selection of art, drama, science and scholastic groups. Students of all ages are encouraged to participate in service and ministry-driven philanthropies.
Nurturing Environment
Dedicated to knowing the whole child, all teachers introduce themselves to students and their families during home visits before the start of each school year. This personal approach to education gives the student an opportunity to get to know his or her teacher in a very comfortable situation. The teachers and staff of Concordia have high standards and expectations for our students, but we also love them and nurture their individual God-given gifts.
