Families

At Calvary, we desire to support and strengthen families as we worship and grow together, developing marriages and homes that honor God.

We provide opportunities for couples and families to be encouraged and equipped by:

  • Teaching biblical truths to families and children (Ephesians 5:22–6:4)
  • Shepherding families to walk in a manner worthy of the calling (Ephesians 4:1)
  • Equipping families for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12)
  • Praying for husbands and wives to fulfill their biblical roles and responsibilities and to spiritually lead and nurture their children (Ephesians 6:18)

Interested in opportunities and activities focused on marriage, home, and family? Read more about our supporting ministries below and check out our Featured Events.

    Preparing Your 3rd Grader for Corporate Worship
     
    Behold, children are a gift of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3). And seemingly “in the blink of an eye,” they reach adulthood.

    At Calvary, children begin worshiping with their parents and the larger church body by third grade. This class will help parents explain corporate worship to their children and train them to participate appropriately. The ordinances of baptism and communion will also be discussed. 
     
    Parents, this is a brief and wonderful season of life! Enjoy this time of preparation and new experiences with your child! 
     
    Upcoming session:
    Nov 5  |  "Establishing Parental Authority with 2 & 3-Year-Olds"
