Sermon Series

Sermon Series

From the nightly news to social media, the world can feel overwhelming. If God designed us to live with joy, what can we do when life drags us down?

Saturdays at 5 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall
Sundays at 9 & 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary

Join us for a two-part sermon series as we discover how to live positively in a negative world. Our prayer for this series comes from Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Small Groups are Back!

Small Groups are Back!

Life is better in community. That's why we have small groups! Small groups make a big church feel small by helping people grow deeper in their friendships and their faith. These groups are small communities within Calvary's larger community, and they are a great way to get involved. Join a small group at Calvary and experience genuine, godly friendships.

Our new semester of small groups begins the week of Sep 9.

Fall Sermon Series

Fall Sermon Series

Do you struggle to trust God? Wouldn’t life be easier if God told us what he was doing? We often look to Abraham as an example of faith, but the truth is that he struggled with faith just as much as we do.

How did Abraham ultimately become someone we refer to as the father of faith? The difference is that he kept choosing to trust God every step of the way. You see, it’s okay to struggle with trust and even doubt God, but the breakthrough comes when we take a leap of faith and step into the unknown. Abraham dared to follow God despite his own doubt and uncertainty.

Beginning Sep. 9
Saturdays at 5 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall
Sundays at 9 & 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary

What would happen in our lives if we dared to trust God with the same faith? Don’t miss our fall series as we explore practical ways to live by faith in today’s world. How will your life change when you dare to trust God?

Can't make it church? Watch our Sunday services on our webchurch or Facebook Live.

KSG (Kids Small Groups)

  • Wednesday, Aug. 22, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

KSG is a great chance for kids to get to know their peers and learn more about God. Our keyword for KSG is "deeper". We desire to help kids grow deeper in three ways: Deeper in worship, deeper in relationship with God and deeper in relationship with peers.

KSG (Kids Small Groups)
Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
Beginning Aug. 22

Students in Kindergarten-Grade 5 can choose to participate in any one of these small groups we offer:

Royal Rangers is a discipleship class for boys in Kindergarten - 5th grade. Classes meet every Wednesday evening during the school year from 7-8:30 pm. Royal Rangers focuses on Christ-like character formation and servant leadership development for boys in a relational and fun environment! The mission is to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christ-like men into becoming life-long servant leaders. Classes begin again August 22, 2018 and end May 29, 2019. REGISTER NOW! Questions? Please email us.

Missionettes is a discipleship class for girls in Kindergarten - 5th grade. Classes meet every Wednesday evening during the school year from 7-8:30 pm. Missionettes provides grade-level activities to challenge girls in their relationship with God, participation in church and missions, the Bible, friends, family and more!

Blast is a discipleship program for both boys and girls in grades 2-5. Wednesday night Blast services during the school year offer a unique opportunity for leaders to personally impact kids. The curriculum is focused on intense discipleship. When leaders share personal experiences, wisdom and their love for Jesus, we find that kids grow in their own faith, as well. Students enjoy large group games, biblical teaching, small group discussion, classroom projects and occasional opportunities to serve. Classes begin again August 22, 2018 and end May 29, 2019. No registration fee or pre-registration required. Questions? Please email us
