How early should I arrive before service?
Our Sunday morning worship services are at 8:15a, 9:45a, and 11:15a. We recommend arriving approximately fifteen minutes prior so that you’ll have plenty of time to find a parking space and a seat in the worship center.
What do I need to do when I arrive?
We have guest parking marked near our Main Entrance. As you enter the facility, you’ll be greeted by a member of our Guest Connections Team (identified by an ID lanyard). Our Guest Connections Team desires to greet you, direct you, and assist you with anything you might need when you arrive. We encourage guests to stop by Guest Services to pick up a gift before or after the worship service. The gift is our way of saying “Thank You” for stopping by. If you have children, we’d encourage you to arrive 20-25 minutes before the worship service so you can check them into our fully staffed, secure children’s ministry.
What is worship like at Calvary?
After the first or second song, a staff pastor will welcome guests, encourage them to fill out a Connection Card and lead us in prayer for the offering. Our Worship Team uses a plurality of instruments and voices on the platform to lead us into God’s presence. Drums, guitars, and keyboards are just a few of the instruments we use. The choice of song and tempo is tailored to fit the overall service theme. We sing songs written by such contemporary artists as Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, the Desperation Band, etc. The congregation is encouraged to participate in the service by standing, clapping, and singing. We usually have a “greeting time” shortly before the final worship song.
What kind of sermon will I hear?
Our teaching team is passionate about preaching through the Scriptures verse by verse. A typical sermon lasts approximately 30-35 minutes and emphasizes tying biblical principles to life application. The pastor’s outline is provided on PowerPoint. Listeners are encouraged to follow along using their Bibles and take notes.
What is available for my children?
Calvary Church is committed to caring for our kids. We have child care for infants through 5- year-olds and a dynamic teaching and worship experience designed for kids K-5th grade. The children's ministry wing is to the right of the main entrance as you enter the building. Our friendly Children's Welcome Center staff will help you and your children check-in and find the right room.
What should I wear to service?
We are a diverse group of Christ-followers at Calvary. Some choose to wear casual clothes while others dress a little more formally. Most of our community dresses semi-casually.
