First Time Visitors FAQ’s
What time are Services?
Our main services are on Sunday mornings and Wednesday Evenings. Sunday morning service starts at 11:00 AM. Wednesday evenings service begins at 7PM. Full child-care is available at all services.
We welcome visitors at all of our services and events. Worship summarizes all that we do as we live for God, but on Sundays we express our worship to God together through singing and listening to the teaching of the Bible.
The messages focus on the meaning of a portion of the Bible in its original context and show its relevance for our lives today. We tend to teach verse by verse through a book of the Bible. We encourage people to bring a Bible to follow along. Bibles are available in the pews.
How can I get involved?
The Bible likens the church to a spiritual family, so we encourage people to get to know one another and establish friendships. This doesn’t happen easily in large groups, as we have in our worship services. So we offer a wide variety of smaller group fellowships throughout the week. We have found that the best way to build significant relationships is to get involved in serving.
How should I dress when I come?
Calvary invites anyone interested in hearing the message of God’s grace, and does not require a certain type of dress to attend. On any given time, you will find people wearing everything from suits to shorts. Since God looks at men’s hearts and not their outward appearance (1Samuel 16:7), we endeavor to do so as well. The most common form of dress could be best described as “casual.”
