The strength of a church is often reflected in the strength of its families, and the strength of a family is often as strong as the man who leads it.

The men of Calvary Church help to strengthen families in our church and community through fellowship and serving.

Check out our upcoming events for men, or spend some quality guy time in one of our Men's Bible studies or serving opportunities, such as Hearts & Hammers!
