> Our Saturday evening 5:30 PM service is an intimate, informal, casual type
of contemporary gathering with piano accompaniment, song leaders, a prayer
circle, and emphasis of God's Word. Holy Communion is celebrated the 1st,
3rd, and 5th Saturday each month.
> Our Sunday morning 8:30 AM service is traditionally formal using a liturgical
format, organ music, and vestments. Holy Communion is celebrated the 1st,
3rd, and 5th Sunday each month
> Our Sunday morning 11:00 AM service is Praise/Contemporary oriented using
song leaders, piano, and lay participants. Holy Communion is celebrated the 2nd,
4th, and 5th Sunday each month.
> Our midweek Wednesday evening 7:00 PM meditation times during Lent and Advent
feature longer focus on God's Word with attention toward specific and changing topics.
+ Why does Calvary promote praying for others?
> We firmly believe that casting our cares, concerns, and needs upon the Lord Jesus helps
us focus on the Healer and the One who can and does, not only hear our requests, answer
according to His will and our good and the good of those for whom we pray.
+ What's the big deal about "by grace alone, faith alone, God's Word alone"?
> We know that we are by nature alienated from the Lord. We need a remedy for our sins.
Grace is undeserved love and this comes from the Lord Jesus. His undeserved love for us
demonstrated on the cross and in the resurrection is the only way we can connect to Him. We
cannot earn it, be sincere enough, learn enough, or have the best intentions to attain it. It is
only by grace.
> We know that we embrace this grace only by faith. Believing, trusting, and hoping in the Lord
through faith is primary to understanding our relationship to the Lord.
> We know that there are many sources for religious understanding today. We believe there is
only one source for the true and trusted understanding for Godly living and salvation in Jesus.
This source is The Bible - God's Word. Because it is inspired, inerrant, and infallible, it is our
only source for accurate information about the Lord and His plan for His creation.
