Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as preparing church bulletins to making and serving a meal at a homeless shelter.
GROWTH MINISTRIES & OUTREACH MINISTRIES
There are numerous ways to become an active part in the many ministries of Calvary — everything from assisting with the worship services, singing in one of the church choirs, to Bible study groups and teaching Sunday School. The opportunities are endless. You will find many, but not all, of the ministries listed below. Involvement in one of the ministries helps the Calvary community utilize its talents and gifts, and grow spiritually and emotionally. It’s also a lot of fun!
Altar Guild: Assist in the weekly preparations for the worship services and communion.
Assisting Ministers (readers) & Communion Assistants: Read the lessons during worship and/or assist with Communion distribution.
