Church Leadership

Calvary Elders

At Calvary Church, the elders give oversight and direction to the church. They meet monthly to prayerfully consider church direction, policy and discipline. If you have questions about Calvary, you are always welcome to direct them to the Elder Chair (Elder.Chair@calvarygr.org).

One of their particular joys is praying for the church as a whole and individual members of the congregation. If you would like the elders to pray with you, you are welcome to join them the first Tuesday of every month, 6:15 to 7:15pm, in room 211. You are welcome to come unannounced, but it is helpful if you contact them in advance to be put on their schedule. Contact Trish Thompson.
