A Leadership Update on Sundays at Calvary

08.08.18 | by Eric Wakeling


Calvary Family,

This past Sunday we announced that we will be moving forward to having One Worship Service every Sunday starting on September 2nd. God is leading us into a new season in the life of Calvary Church and the staff, elders and other key leaders are all excited for the journey ahead.

This idea was first introduced about five months ago. Since then, our church leadership has spent considerable time praying for God's direction, listening to feedback from all of you and discussing the best way to structure our Sunday experience here at Calvary Church. Out of this process came an updated plan for our Sunday mornings:

8:00 AM - GROUPS  
 · Early Morning LifeGroups for Adults 
 · No Children/Student Ministry Programs available

9:30 AM - WORSHIP  
 · All Together in the Worship Center 
 · Nursery-5th Grade Programs Available

 · Late Morning LifeGroups & Classes for Adults
 · Nursery-High School Programs Available
 · Spanish and Mandarin Language Worship Services

I feel that this is not only a good idea, but also a spiritual need, for our church. We love the beautiful and rich times we have had worshiping all together on our special One Service Sundays. We know that this will be a great environment to invite our friends and family into who are seeking something they will only find in Jesus Christ. We also believe that this will help us cross generational lines where we can all grow and be sharpened by one another. We have great solutions and are working hard on all of the details from volunteers in Children's Ministry to the parking lot and to rooms for all of our Sunday Morning LifeGroups and classes. Would you prayerfully consider ways you might get involved and help serve at Calvary this fall?

And, we believe the challenges this change brings will be used by God for His glory and our growth — both as individuals and as a church body as the Apostle Paul urges in Ephesians 4:1-16. Our church leadership, including all of our Pastors and Elders, share a common hope and prayer as we enter this new season: for a God-driven grace, a Spirit-led unity and a Christlike love to abound in the days ahead. Our church family has many ways we can grow as every generation comes together to worship each week. And, we hope you will join us for the journey!

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever.” – Philippians 4:19-20
