    Sanctuary Renovation
    Click for full details and the latest information

    Our Sanctuary renovation project is now underway! 

     

    On Sunday mornings, we are gathering for worship on the left side of the Sanctuary — the main floor and balconies are open as well as overflow space in the Calvary Life Center, Auditorium 1400.

    You’ll notice temporary construction walls and drapes to protect the organ and tech equipment. The LED screens are in storage, but we have a temporary projection system is in place. Scaffolding and other equipment may be visible but will be safely out of the way on Sundays. Please do not enter the construction area!

    Sit closer to your neighbors this summer and meet new friends! Let’s give special consideration to those using walkers/wheelchairs on the main floor — and no saving seats! The ushers will direct you to the balconies and to CLC 1400 when the main floor seating is full. 

    Our livestream will continue at live.calvarychurch.com and Calvary Facebook as usual.

    Thank you for your prayers and patience through the renovation. Our plans include paint, floor tile and carpet, refurbishing the pews, platform ADA access, baptistery renovation, and lighting upgrades. 

    How exciting it will be to worship in our beautiful new Sanctuary this fall!

    Upcoming topics include:
    8/25: Trusting God in Tough Times
    9/1: Trials and Temptations
    9/8: Abandoned by God
    9/15: The Burning Fuse of Anger
    9/22: When Life Turns Upside Down
    9/29: Discouragement and Depression
    10/6: Life is Meaningless
    10/20: All the Lonely People
    10/27: Facing Fear
    11/10: Suicide and Euthanasia
    11/17: Plagued by Worry and Anxiety

    Protecting the Heart of Your Child:
    A Biblical Parenting Conference
    Sunday, August 25  |  3:00 – 6:00 PM, Calvary Life Center


    Families are constantly exposed to the world's perspective on gender, sexuality, and marriage. As parents and grandparents, what are we to believe? What and when are we to teach our kids? How do we protect the hearts of our children?

    Calvary Family Ministry is committed to equipping parents by discussing the biblical view on these important topics. We're here to walk with you as you shepherd your kids through life's transitions as they grow up.

    Conference sessions include:

    • "The Biblical View of Gender, Sex, and Marriage"   
    • "What to Say to Your Children and When"
    • "Understanding Guys and Girls and How to Treat Them"
    • "Parameters for Phones, Privacy, Peers, and Dating"

    Within these main conference sessions, we’ll hold breakouts tailored for parents of sons/daughters at various ages. You’ll receive practical biblical insights, guidance, and resources!

    Childcare to 5th grade is provided, though please note that space is limited.

    Cost is $10/person or $15/couple if registered by August 1.

    SES Apologetics Conference
    October 11–12 at Calvary
    Calvary discount through 8/1

    "Why Truth Still Matters"
    SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics
    October 11–12, 2019
     
    Reality is being questioned at its very core. Is there any truth about gender and sexuality? Can we know truth about God? Is the Bible actually true? Does truth even exist? Answers to these questions have a tremendous impact on your worship, discipleship, apologetics, and evangelism. Faulty ideas about God and His truth are permeating both the church and our culture today. At this conference, we'll get back to the basics of understanding the truth and why it matters.
     
    The SES National Conference on Christian Apologetics is designed to help individuals and churches win the battle of worldviews. With two full days, 102 sessions, and 80 speakers, you'll be challenged and strengthened to defend your Christian faith.
     
    This SES conference is hosted at Calvary Church.
    Friday, October 11  |  8:45 AM–9:30 PM
    Saturday, October 12 |  8:45 AM–4:30 PM 
     
    You’ll hear these featured speakers — and many more!
    Michael Brown  |  Alisa Childers |  David Geisler  |  Gary Habermas
    Richard Howe |  Chip Ingram |  Richard Land  |  Mike Licona
    Stephen Meyer  |  Jeff Myers |  Hugh Ross  |  Frank Turek
     
    Elective choices will be offered for adults, teens, and ministry leaders.
