Ministries and Activities
We offer Sunday school classes for both children and adults. We have adult classes, a class for teenagers, classes for children of all ages, and even a nursery. In addition to regularly meeting together for times of prayer and Bible study, classes also plan activities throughout the year to stay active and grow closer together as Christians. As the Bible states, our goal towards others through this ministry is that we are "teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:20)
Wednesday night Master Club and Teen Class
Every Wednesday night throughout the school year, we offer Master Club for children ages 4-12. Each night, clubbers get the opportunity to hear exciting Bible stories, memorize Scripture, learn to study God's Word, and play exciting games. Children also get the opportunity to earn "Bucks" to spend at the Club Store. Children participate in many other fun activities as well.
For teens from age 13 and up, our teen class offers exciting lessons and challenges from the Bible. Be part of youth outings and great activities that bring together new friends and strengthen relationships.
Nursery is provided during each of our services and Sunday School from infants to three-year-old toddlers. We provide a safe, family-oriented environment and encourage parental involvement. We are flexible to meet the needs of our families, even providing a room where parents can be involved in the service with their children who temporarily may not be able to be in the auditorium or in nursery.
Adult and Children's Choir
Calvary Baptist gives excellent opportunity to serve the Lord in music in youth choir for ages four to twelve and the adult choir starting at age thirteen. The adult choir sings in both Sunday services, and the children's choir sings in our Sunday School time. The choir of Calvary Baptist strives to sing music that honors and glorifies God while edifying believers and serving as a testimony of what Christ has done.
Intercessors for Christ
Every Tuesday night at 7:00, we meet together for a special time of prayer for our nation and for each other. It is a time to get together in Christian fellowship to be serious about prayer. The Bible clearly teaches that we should be "praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" (Ephesians 6:18)
Reaching others with the Gospel is a pivotal part of any church. We meet monthly to go door-to-door in our neighborhood as well as encourage other regular opportunities. We also support a number of missionaries in effort to spread the Gospel not only in the US but also around the world. We take Christ's commission seriously that we must "go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19)
On the first Tuesday of every month, members of the church minister at the Union Mission, a local shelter for homeless families. We are able to hold a service at the men's shelter to preach the Gospel to hundreds. Over the years, we have seen many accept Christ as their personal Savior through this wonderful opportunity.
The Hill's Home
Each third Thursday of the month, we have the opportunity to minister at the Hill’s Home for Adults. The residents enjoy singing with our members and hearing a message from God’s Word.
Each month the Sisters of Strength and the Men’s Fellowship meet for a time of encouragement and fellowship. Each group takes time to reflect in God’s Word as well as lift each other up in prayer. We also enjoy other banquets and fellowship times throughout the year the grow closer as a church family and encourage each other.
