What to Expect During Worship

  • First, we promise you won't be embarrassed or pressured to give money or to join the church, so relax and focus on experiencing worship.
  • We'll be singing songs to express our love for God. The words are within the Hymnals, that are available in the pews, with the page numbers announced and printed in the bulletins.
  • You may also see Christian sacraments such as baptism or communion, and we'll be sure to explain what they mean so you won't feel left out. Holy Communion is open to all people, you need not be a member of any church to participate.  
  • Our pastor will share a relevant message (click here to hear recent sermons), to enable you to discover new truths that help you see life from God's point of view. We encourage you to use your Bible or the pew Bible to follow along.
  • We'll be done in about one hour so you'll be ready to go pick up your little ones, socialize at our Coffee Hour, meet new friends for lunch, or just head home.
  • You’ll see all sorts of attire at our services. Many people wear "business casual," however a number of others will wear jeans. We invite you to come dressed comfortably for you.  
  • There is a special children's moment at the 11 a.m. service followed by an opportunity for the children to either return to their family or participate in Children's Sunday School (also available at the 8:30 a.m. service). 


Our Vision is to make God's love real, with Calvary's worship opportunities, buildings, and programs accessible and welcoming to all the persons. We welcome those seeking God's comfort, guidance and healing in a warm and welcoming environment.
