Worship for Sunday, April 12
As Christians everywhere celebrate the joy and hope of Easter Sunday, Calvary invites you to join us online for a service of music, scripture, prayer, and preaching that will stream live beginning at 9 o’clock on Sunday morning. Our pastor will conclude his sermon series on the “I AM” statements of Jesus by focusing on John 11:17-27 and the Lord’s promise that “I AM the Resurrection and the Life.”

On Sunday, April 5, Calvary will be live-streaming a service of music, prayer, and preaching at 9 o’clock in the morning. This Sunday’s message will be focused on John 14:1-7, where Jesus tells us: “I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.” We invite you to worship with us!
Worship for Sunday, March 29
Service for Sunday, March 29 will be available through Facebook Live. Pastor Alex will be delivering the message “I AM: The Bread of Life”. The service will begin at 9:00 am. At the end of our worship time – we plan to celebrate a “Virtual Lord’s Supper,” in which we’ll take communion together, even though we’re apart. Therefore, if you’d like to participate, you might plan to have some kind of bread or crackers available – along with some kind of juice or other beverage. In the end, I’m not sure that the Lord cares as much about what we eat and drink – as that we do it together in His name.
We hope you can join us. Stay safe & keep praying.
