Supporting & Equipping Families

Families

At Calvary, we want families of all kinds to know and share the love of Jesus Christ. We strive to equip and encourage parents to build strong households within Christ-centered homes, sharing the love of God, the beauty of the Gospel and a life of faith with our next generation.

Everything we do and teach is consistent with the Bible as the Word of God, and we continually pray for God to be glorified and His will to be done in our homes and community.

Join us for opportunities on an ongoing basis to support and strengthen relationships, marriages, and families at all stages of life!

    "Tying the Knot"
    Tuesdays: March 5–April 9
    6:30–8:00 PM, Room 402

    You're invited to spend six Tuesday evenings with Pastors Rodney Navey and Jim Pile addressing foundational issues and biblical principles that will help you establish and maintain a healthy marriage.

    In each session, we'll work through issues like conflict, expectations, communication, finances, and intimacy. You'll get to know your spouse on a deeper level by assessing personality, birth order, and more.

    Don't be surprised by a little homework, too! We'll use Rob Green's book, Tying the Knot: A Premarital Guide to a Strong & Lasting Marriage, as a realistic, hopeful, and actionable guide toward a Christ-centered marriage. There is no cost, but please pre-register so we may prepare enough materials for you!

    What if a summer “missions trip” could happen in your very own home? Calvary families have the unique opportunity to host orphaned, school-aged children who long to learn about Jesus and experience His love.

    Calvary HOME Ministry is partnering with New Horizons for Children to offer children from Eastern Europe first-hand experiences with positive family relationships, spiritual nurturing, healthy hygiene, American culture, and immersion in the English language. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to hear the Gospel — they have a Heavenly Father who loves them dearly and is waiting to adopt them into His eternal family!


    Information Meeting

    6:30–8:30 PM, |  Room 232


    Come hear from the local NHFC coordinator and past host families and get your questions answered!

    Contact: Debbie Davis, ddavis716@yahoo.com


    Will you prayerfully consider hosting a child for six weeks (late-June to early–August) this summer?

    How you can help:
    •    Host a child
    •    Sponsor a child
    •    Plan a group activity
    •    Become a prayer partner

    Host family applications and deposits/sponsorships will be accepted through April; children will arrive in June.
     
    Estimated cost per child: $2,950
