We grow in Him through the Bible, prayer, and group friendships. We show Him through hopeful living and helpful ministry. Come Join us in this CalvaryLife!
. . . OUR STORY!
We began during the northern migration of the post WWII years. Many newcomers missed the warm/familiar worship experience they had enjoyed in their churches back home. Deep personal faith in God, reverence for the Bible, passion for ministry, and desire for warm friendships led them to form Calvary Baptist Church. Those same values continue. We still love those old hymns and gospel songs, but we also enjoy contemporary Christian music with it’s rich expressions of worship and praise. We still have Sunday School for all ages at 9:15 and Sunday morning worship at 10:30 with Kidz Church as well. Wednesday Prayer and Share is at 10:00 a.m. and again at 6:30 p.m. We believe in the power of prayer and meet on Sunday nights at 5:30 to pray for our church, community, nation, and world. As pastor, I enjoy telling God’s Story! I don’t want to just ‘preach sermons‘ – I want to share God’s story with truth and passion.
. . . YOUR STORY!
Your life matters to God and to us. God made you to love and be loved. He made you for fellowship with others in a safe and loving family. God made you to grow in knowledge – faith – and Christ-likeness. You’re made for a unique purpose only God can fulfill in you. And you have been made to live forever in an eternal home. Why, it just wouldn’t be heaven without you!!
