    Easter Services Livestream
    Sunday, April 12 at 9:45 AM
    Good Friday, April 10 at 7 PM

    People are living in fear. 

    Fear of being infected by the coronavirus. Fear of being unemployed. Fear of life savings being wiped out. And most of all, fear of death. Death, like the coronavirus, is no respecter of persons. All of us have an appointment with death. But what then?

    Join us this Easter Sunday on livestream at Calvary, as we celebrate that the fear of death is conquered through our Lord Jesus.

    Easter Sunday — "Conquering the Fear of Death"
    Sunday, April 12 at 9:45 AM


    "What is our hope in life and death? Christ alone, Christ alone! What is our only confidence? That our souls to Him belong. Who holds our days within His hand? What comes, apart from His command? And what will keep us to the end? The love of Christ, in which we stand. O sing hallelujah! Our hope springs eternal; O sing hallelujah! Now and ever we confess, Christ our hope in life and death."
     
    Words & Music by Keith Getty, Matt Boswell, Jordan Kauflin, Matt Merker, Matt Papa

    A Survey of the New Testament
    with Pastor Jim Pile
    The message of the New Testament centers on our salvation in Christ and our walk with Him. The Apostle Peter tells us that God’s divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness through knowing our Savior (2 Peter 1:3). In this class, we will learn how to apply biblical principles for living a life that honors the Lord based on those truths.

    Prophecy: How Their Fulfillment Fuels our Faith
    with Pastor Nathaniel Pearce
    One of the many tools God uses to communicate His plans to mankind is prophecy. But what does the fulfillment of prophecy teach us about God? How does it encourage or fuel our faith in God? Join us for this intriguing study that will fortify your faith!

    Listening to God's Voice Through the Lens of Gideon 
    with Pastor Jim Cashwell
    The story of Gideon recounts the miraculous power of God to reverse a national tragedy. But it is also a personal story of emerging faith, courage, decisive leadership, human betrayal, weakness, and failure. In the process of studying the life of God's servant in Judges 6–8, we will learn a number of spiritual truths common to disciples of all ages. Join us and learn how to listen to God's voice through the lens of Gideon.

    Reading Through the Bible: Focus on the Major Prophets
    with Pastor Rodney Navey
    When we read the Bible, we are actually sitting in the very council of God (Jeremiah 23:18). How can we neglect such an honored position? This 5-week course will cover how to read the Bible, with special emphasis on how to read the major prophets. 

    Register


    The Doctrine of Salvation 
    with Pastor Rob Reece
    What is salvation, and what does it mean to be saved? Is salvation a single event or a process that continues throughout the Christian journey? What about predestination? Does the individual have any choice in the matter? Can I lose my salvation? Why does Scripture emphasize endurance? This class will explore key questions around the doctrine of salvation.

    A Theology of Suffering
    with Pastor Sibu Rajappan 
    "Why Lord, why would a loving God allow that?" is one of the most frequent questions asked when one goes through suffering and pain. Some have used this to argue against the existence of God. How should we, as Christians, view and endure suffering and pain? How can we help those going through suffering and pain? In this class, we will discuss the important and relevant doctrine of suffering.

    The Bible Responds

    Calvary Connection
    with Pastor John Munro
    Watch this week's video — New 4/1

    The world is in a time of crisis. The coronavirus has impacted many globally and right here in Charlotte. With businesses, restaurants, schools, and churches being closed indefinitely, we need to find a way to stay connected. While we can't meet together in a building, we can use technology.

     

    We invite you to join us weekly as Pastor Munro shares a message here, on Facebook, and on YouTube during this challenging time. The threat of disease can be scary, but God’s Word tells us to, “Fear not!” Let’s unite in Bible study and prayer, help those in need, and use this time to grow closer with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Grab your Bible and open the living Word of God with Pastor Munro!

    Calvary Update
    Regarding the coronavirus
    Updated 4/1

    Updated 4/1/2020

    All of us have been following the updates regarding the coronavirus. Despite these uncertain circumstances, we know our God is in control, and we trust in His sovereign purposes.

    In accordance with the Stay at Home orders in effect in Mecklenburg County and North Carolina, as well as current federal guidelines, Calvary Church continues to support the ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus.

    While we should not be fearful, the health and safety of the Calvary community and our broader community are priorities. We seek to make wise decisions and be loving neighbors and exemplary citizens.

    Calvary continues the suspension of all church services and ministry activities.

    • LIVESTREAM — We are livestreaming our worship service Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM. Please plan to join us at live.calvarychurch.com or on Calvary Facebook.
       
    • EASTER SERVICES — We will livestream our Good Friday service on April 10 at 7:00 PM and our Easter Sunday service on April 12 at 9:45 AM. Details
       
    • GROUP MEETINGS — There will be no congregation in attendance for worship services, no ALGs, no ministry meetings, no weekly Bible studies, no Wednesday activities, and no in-person group gatherings.

    As many of these gatherings transition to Zoom video conference meetings, we will update information on our website, and group leaders will communicate details to participants.

    • OFFICES — Our church offices and campus are closed. Do not come on campus unless specifically authorized in advance by Pastor Munro or Jordan Shaw, Chief of Staff.
       
    • GIVING — Tithes and offerings should be given online or by mail: Calvary Church, 5801 Pineville-Matthews Road, Charlotte, NC 28226

    We have not identified a specific date to resume services and activities. We will provide further updates here, on social media, and through the Looking Up weekly email newsletter on Fridays.

    Please continue to be in prayer for this developing situation and for all who are impacted by the coronavirus. Our trust is in the Lord.


    “My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” — John 14:27
