Calvary 101

Here at Calvary, we are committed to connecting people to God. Our vision is to love God, love people, and reproduce disciple-making disciples.  On Sunday mornings we begin our services with an amazing blend of contemporary worship songs and great hymns of the faith that are God-centered and exalt the supremacy of Christ. We believe prayer to be a vital component to all we do, we take special time for personal and corporate prayer in every service. Preaching and teaching comes directly from the Bible, which is our only source of absolute and unchanging truth. During every service we have safe and secure nursery and childcare for your kids. We are a mix of inter generational people, young and old, wearing anything from blue jeans to suits, you will be welcomed with the genuine love of Christ. We welcome you to come just as you are and connect with us as we connect to God!

 

Calvary is:

Devoted to God’s Word
Christ Centered
Spirit Led
Grace Filled
Servant Hearted
Prayer Focused
Intent on Fellowship
Accepting and Friendly
