Church members will vote on three updates to the Calvary Church Constitution. In addition, we will spend time in prayer, worship and enjoying dessert together. 

As a response to God’s leading and a desire to better align our constitution with Scripture, the elders are proposing three updates to Calvary Church’s Constitution: 1) Strengthen and clearly define Calvary’s definition of marriage; 2) Allow women to serve in the role of deacon; 3) Move the annual congregational meeting and board start date back by one month. 

A full marked-up copy of the Constitution with all the proposed changes is available here. To learn more about the background behind women serving in the role of deacons, visit Here you will find teaching from Pastor Jim Samra and an extensive FAQ document. This teaching is also available on DVD at the Welcome Center.
