Calvary Lutheran Church and Parsonage is a historic church building and parsonage in Silverton, Oregon, United States. The church is also known as the First Christian Church.[2] The church is a combination of the Carpenter Gothic and the Queen Anne architectural styles.[3] The parsonage is Bungalow/Craftsman and Greek Revival style.[citation needed]

In 1890–1891, the church was built for the First Church of Christ,[3] which later became the First Christian Church.[citation needed] In 1906, the church building became the Norwegian Lutheran Church and in 1926-1927 it was remodeled to its current configuration.[3] The church was sold in 1975, and in 1984, it became the White Steeple Gallery and Tea Room, a name by which it was still known in 1992.[3]

On June 6, 1985, the buildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
