Calvary Lutheran Church of Rush
Point also offers events such as great dinners several times a year and plenty of youth orientated
activities. They recently opened a new youth center and are expanding youth orientated activities as a result.
The Church parsonage was
the location of the first general store in Rush Point
and was followed by a bakery at a later time. The parsonage is over 120 years old and
and others in the area are in the process of renovating it in 2016/17. Contact the Church or myself if you wish
to visit or utilize
their facilities. Contact information and events as well
as day to day activities are posted on their website at: http://my.calvaryofrushpoint.org/
Sign up for their weekly newsletter
if you want to stay informed of their activities and offerings! They are also on Facebook.
My hobbies related outdoor organizational memberships include: Ruffed Grouse Society, Ducks Unlimited
