Small Groups are Back!

Small Groups are Back!

  • Sunday, Aug 27

Life is better in commuity. 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 this August 27.

Week of Prayer

Week of Prayer

We're kicking off the fall season with a week of prayer for our church family on Sept. 3–10. This is a great opportunity to “bear one another’s burdens” (Galatians 6:2) as we join together to pray for marriages, health, provision, the next generation and more!

We have lined up many ways for you to participate in this week:

Daily Prayer. Each day will have a focus and prayer points to support you. You can sign up here to receive them daily via email or pick up a printed guide in services on Sunday, Sept. 3.

Prayer Walls. We have set up several prayer walls around the building (starting Aug. 27). These areas give you the opportunity to “leave a request” or “take a request.” If you have a need in your life, leave a request. If you would like to pray for others in our church family, take a request with you and pray for that need during the week. You could even pray as a family on the car ride home!

Facebook Live Prayer. Every week day will feature some of our pastors who are available to pray for your requests from 12 to 12:30 p.m. CST. Find us on Facebook!

Encounter Service. We'll conclude the week with an Encounter Service on Sunday, Sept. 10, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This evening will feature worship by Pastor Steve Andres and times of prayer for each of the six areas we prayed for during the week! Childcare will be provided for birth through three years. Come to receive prayer and lift up your church family in prayer during this powerful evening!

Let’s use this week as an opportunity to grow closer to God through prayer, grow closer to each other as we lift one another’s burdens, and grow closer as a church as we unite in love!

Fall Sermon Series

Fall Sermon Series

Every movement is shaped by moments, and those movements can shape the course of history. The early Church was shaped by God-sized moments that changed everything. These moments were game changers.

Sundays this Fall
9 a.m & 11 a.m.

Join us this September for our sermon series, Game Changers, based on the book of Acts. We’ll see how encounters with God thousands of years ago continue to shape the body of Christ today.

Can't make it a week? Every service is live streamed on our webchurch and later posted on our website.

Our Story: Stories of Hope for Marriage

  • Friday, Oct. 6, 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Every marriage has a story filled with struggle and success. After all, it's more complex than finding your true love and living happily ever after. It's more like a novel with plot twists, where conflict and resolution, at times, seem unknown. So whether your marriage is in a hopeless season or a season full of hope, there’s a story you need to hear!

Come join us for Our Story: Stories of Hope for Marriage with special guest speakers, Kendall and Starla Bridges, the authors of “Better Marriage: Against All Odds." In addition to hearing from Kendall and Starla, you'll also listen to couples from Calvary Church via live testimonies and video stories who have experienced both good and difficult times in their marriage.

Friday, Oct. 6
7 p.m.
Fellowship Hall

This date night will be full of fun, inspiration and encouragement and includes music, food, and more!
