We’ll talk about how God designed His church to function, the history and beliefs of Calvary, and will go on a behind-the-scenes tour to learn about the different ministries that take place at our church. It's also a great way to get to know others at Calvary, including some of our pastoral staff. This is offered several times throughout the year, most often on Sunday afternoons.

    Wednesdays, May 17-31

    7:00-8:30pm | Room W-209

    Taught by Pastors Tim Nellis and Robert Carter

    As followers of Jesus, we are invited into a story so much bigger than ourselves. We are on a mission to spread the good news about Jesus and reach out through acts of service, justice and compassion. Each of us has an important role to play.

    Do you know your purpose and how to carry out God's calling in your life?  In our "Discover Your Purpose" class you’ll explore your unique God-given spiritual gifts through taking insightful personality tests. You'll also learn what the Bible has to say about purpose and be equipped to make a difference at Calvary, in our community and around the world.

    “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10


    Baptism Class

    Are you interested in being baptized?

    To learn more about baptism and be prepared to take part in the One Service Baptisms on May 28, come to a one-hour class during one of the dates and times listed below:

    Sunday, May 21
    9am + 11am - Meet in the Worship Center Prayer Room
    (For One Service Baptisms on May 28 at 10am)

    Baptism is a great celebration event where those who have become followers of Jesus "go public" with their decision. We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is for any believer old enough to make a personal decision to follow Christ, and is done through full immersion in water as a symbol of identification with His death, burial, and resurrection. Come learn about taking this next step in your faith at an upcoming Baptism Class.
