Connect with usCONNECT CARD


The Calvary Church Middle School Ministry for youth in grades 6, 7, and 8.  The Spot is a community where we CONNECT with God and others to GROW in our faith so we REACH Orange County and the world for Jesus Christ.   This is The Spot where you belong!

SUMMER 2022!

The Spot is ready for Summer and to experience the moving of the Holy Spirit!  This season we are excited to CONNECT through our summer programs, events, and gatherings!  We are seeking to GROW as we study the Word of God on Sundays and Wednesdays!   We are ready to REACH others as we invite our friends to church and serve in Orange County!




Sundays, 11:00am - 12:15pm
The Student Underground

Each week we check-in on the platform in The Underground (just through the double-doors).  Students will have some time to hang out and play in The Underground.  Then we will move into the Blue Line for group games and some connection activities. We will engage in worship through music and experience growth through God’s Word.

When we read the Old Testament we see God showing up in incredible ways.  When we read the Gospels we see Jesus changing lives.  Today we have the Holy Spirit moving in us!  The Holy Spirit is alive, working, and moving.  Let’s tap in to the movement of the Spirit and see where and how He is leading.  We will do this by meditating on the His Word, listening carefully for His voice, and allowing Him to lead our next steps.

1 Peter 1:20-21- Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding, or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.

The Spirit is MOOVING…Are you ready to join in?

 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’  “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’  “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:35-40
