We're glad you found us online; we hope you'll stop by for a visit sometime!
When you come for a visit, we pray you experience a warm welcome, engaging music and a biblical message. It's our desire to create services of worship that are intentionally Gospel-centered and beliefs that are clearly communicated. We're enthusiastic about our faith because we believe Jesus, indeed, died and rose again! And because He lives, there is hope in this world, real hope with real impact.
If you’re a guest with us, enjoy your time visiting. We know many people want to check out church and “be anonymous” for a while – and we understand. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed simply as our guest. Once you're ready to get connected, or maybe you have some questions you'd like answered, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email (click below) or give us a call.
Your First Visit
Experiencing a church for the first time can be exciting but also can be filled with a little apprehension. We've put together a short list of expectations when you first visit our church to help ease you into the worship experience at Calvary.
First, find the Welcome Center.
When entering either of our main entrance doors, you'll head straight into the foyer adjacent to the auditorium where you'll find the Welcome Center and someone there to greet you. There we will meet your family, answer your questions, show you and your children to the appropriate classrooms, and try to make your first visit begin as smoothly as possible.
What about my children?
We strive to give children a safe and age appropriate experience where they can learn about Jesus' love for them in a creative and relevant way. We have programs for all ages ranging from nursery through high school during our Sunday School hour (beginning at 9:00am), and we offer Junior Church for kindergarten through the 4th grade during our morning worship service. Children remain with parents for the beginning of the service and then are dismissed before the preaching begins to engage with a lesson of their own. The staff at the Welcome Center will be able to show you where classrooms are located and explain drop-off and pick-up times.
What should I wear?
We don't require a dress code although our leadership will wear business casual in general, but many will come dressed for comfort depending upon the weather. We value life change more than appearance change.
What if I don't have a Bible?
Every part of our ministry emphasizes God's Word. In order to serve our people better, we've determined that it would be helpful to have Bibles in our pew racks for folks to use, take, read, borrow and have as their own (we'll buy more!). If you don't have a Bible, we encourage you to use the one in the pew and take it home when you leave. Read it for all your worth; it's God's love letter for you.
When does the service end?
Our worship service begins promptly at 10:00am each Sunday morning and will end by around 11:15am. The first 30-35 minutes includes our congregational singing, Scripture readings, prayers, testimonies, announcements and taking up the offering. The remainder of the service is devoted to the preaching and teaching of God's Word and lasts approximately 35-40 minutes. Junior Church takes place during the sermon and children in kindergarten through the 4th grade are dismissed during the announcements.
