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.

Saturdays
5 p.m.
Fellowship Hall

Sundays
9 a.m & 11 a.m.
Sanctuary

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 Sunday service is live streamed on our webchurch and later posted on our website.

Shoe Drive

Help us make a difference this October!

Instead of a coat drive this year, we’re collecting new and gently used shoes for upcoming missions trips, local outreaches and our food and clothing pantry.

We’re collecting shoes for the following ministries:

  • Chicago City Life Center —Pastor Charles and Kehinde Moodie lead CCLC, a sister church of Calvary's that we support in different ways throughout the year. We will partner with them during their holiday outreaches and help them give to the homeless, under-resourced and impoverished.  
  • Calvary Church's Food and Clothing Pantry — Shoes will go out to our immediate local community and help those that come to our pantry for both clothing and food. 
  • Dominican Republic — We will be donating shoes to students who are in school with Calvary supported missionaries.

Bring in your donations to any location around the building through the end of this month!
