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 calvarygr.org/womenasdeacons. 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.
