NEW TO CALVARY?
We are so excited that you decided to visit us online today! As you browse through our website, you will see that we are a church that is committed to Christ, His people, and His community. We want to help each other grow in our knowledge and devotion to Christ. That's really what church is all about.
We hope that as you read through the information, you'll find that this is a place for you and your family to get involved.
We invite you to join us at this weekend where we passionately worship God and study His Word. As you step on our campus, we trust you'll loved and challenged to grow in your relationship with God. We're here to help with that!
How do I get there?
What should I expect?
We understand how intimidating it can be going to a new church for the first time or after having been away for a while. That's why we do our best to make our services as welcoming and understandable as possible.
From the moment you arrive, you'll be warmly welcomed. We'd love to meet you, so feel free to introduce yourself. Please let us know what we can do to care for you while you’re here.
Calvary is a place where you can be you! You’ll notice some who like to dress up for church and others who don’t. you'll find shorts, jeans, skirts and everything in between. Feel free to wear what’s comfortable for you, and you’ll fit right in.
What about my kids?
God loves kids – and we love kids too! That's why we've created a fun, relevant, and interactive environment for them to learn the gospel and experience God's love. Our leaders have a huge heart for teaching kids about Jesus and His amazing love for them.
Safety and security is our top priority. Therefore, all volunteers who work with kids have been fingerprinted for your child's safety. Visit our “children’s ministry” tab to see all of the children’s opportunities.
Fill out a Keeping-in-Touch Card
At a point during the worship service, we invite our everyone - guests and regulars alike - to fill out a Keeping-In-Touch card with as much information as they feel comfortable sharing with us. This is the way you can share prayer concerns, things to celebrate, address or email information or updates so we can stay connected with each other. Makes sense, right? Don't worry – we never give away or sell your information. It's kept in strictest confidence.
What if I don't normally go to church?
That's OK. There are many at Calvary who are new to the church experience. We seek to create a welcoming environment for those who are curious about God, but have never felt comfortable in church. We also do our best to explain each element of the worship experience so that people don't get lost along the way. We want Calvary to be a place where you can learn, apply, and wrestle with who God is and what He wants for you. It's okay if you don't have it all figured out yet. We don't either!
Can I invite my friends?
We would love for you to invite your friends! We do our best to provide a warm and welcoming environment for people who are curious about Christianity or who are looking to belong to a community of Christ-followers.
Will I be expected to give money?
No. You will see that during each service, regular attenders have the opportunity to give money to support the ministries at Calvary, either during the service or online during the week. As our guest, just let the offering plate pass by and don't feel obligated in any way to participate in this part of the service. This is for those who call Calvary their home church.
