You were created to know God in a personal way – to have a relationship with Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ.  How do you get to know God and start that relationship?  Whether you are questioning if God really exists, you have recently prayed to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, or you are somewhere in between, you likely have many questions.  Calvary Church is here to help you find answers to those questions, as quickly or as slowly as you desire to go.

  • We would love to connect with you on this journey. Please provide us with some information so that we can get to know you and help you connect better at Calvary Church.  You can complete the Calvary Digital Connection Card above and let us know that you want to know more about following Jesus.
  • Two great resources in exploring answers to common questions about life and God can be found at these links: Knowing God and Exploring God.

In the service, we gather to hear God speak from His Word (the Bible), and to declare we believe Jesus Christ is Lord in worship. During times of singing, you might see a choir, organ, orchestra, band or a mixture of all of these. Services are usually 65 minutes long. To get a feel for our teaching style, check out the current series.

Parking attendants will direct you to the closest available spot. Drop-off areas are located at both Main Entrances (A & B). Guides will be available to assist you into church and wait with you while your loved one parks. A drop-off canopy at Entrance C provides additional protection from the elements.

If you need anything throughout the day — mints, earplugs, a Bible, or a pen — feel free to stop by the Welcome Center. Or, just ask anyone with a Calvary lanyard or name tag. We’re friendly folks, and we’d love to serve you.

If you feel a little puzzled, come straight to the Welcome Center, located in the center of the Crosswalk just inside the Main Entrances (A & B). Look for the yellow welcome flags. We would love to meet you! Our Guides will help get you settled for the morning and answer any questions you have about Calvary.

We encourage families to attend the worship service together. Currently, childcare is available for children birth through young fives in the 9:40am service. Use Entrance A from the parking lot and take the nearest grand staircase off the Crosswalk to the Calvary Kids Check-In Area.

Classroom check-in begins 15 minutes prior to the start of the service and ends 15 minutes after it starts.

Note: Room 135 is available for those who need a quiet place to nurse. The room is equipped with chairs and a diaper changing station. There is also a parent room located near room 136 where the service can be viewed with your child. Note that in our newborn classrooms the ratio of volunteers to children is two to one; someone is usually holding your baby the entire service.

With the current COVID-19 related restrictions in place for indoor meetings, we do not have adult classes on Sunday mornings. There are groups and classes meeting on other days of the week. See a full list here.

Calvary Church welcomes people of all abilities.  Special accommodations including valet parking, reserved seating and wheel chair assistance are available.

Inclusive worship is encouraged for all in the Sanctuary, with additional spaces available for those with sensory sensitivities.
