What to expect
when you 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 things to expect 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. You will also find some really good coffee in the same area ready just for you!
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 9:15am), and we offer Children's Church for kindergarten through the 4th grade during our morning worship service. The staff at the Welcome Center will be able to show you where check your kids in and will make sure you know where they will be and when to pick them up!
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 as needed. If you don't have a Bible, we encourage you to use the one in the pew and take it home when you leave (we'll buy more!).
When does the service end?
Our worship service begins promptly at 10:30am each Sunday morning and will end around 11:45am. The first several minutes include congregational singing, Scripture readings, prayers, testimonies and announcements. The remainder of the service is devoted to the preaching and teaching of God's Word and lasts approximately 30-35 minutes.
Let us know you're coming!
