Calvary sponsors a variety of ministries that are focused on the unique needs of women, men and senior adults.
- Baptist Young Women (BYW) and Women’s Mission Group (WMG): These two fellowships meet once each month for study, encouragement and mission engagement.
- Women’s Bible Study: The Women’s Bible Study takes place on Sunday nights and involves women from many different churches in our area. The group has a passion for learning more about God and how His Word applies to daily life. The group studies various books of the Bible and enjoys challenging each other to stretch spiritually in order to become what God intended for us to be.
The Men’s Ministry at Calvary is anchored in our Men’s Sunday School classes and in the Calvary Handyman Team – a group of men and women who assist families in our immediate community and beyond through home renovation and repair projects. We are in the process of developing more consistent gatherings for men that feature fellowship, growth and service to others. Please check our church calendar to see what’s coming up.
Senior Adults form an extremely important part of Calvary’s church family; and while some might be easing off a bit from the pace they maintained when they were raising their families and pursuing their careers, they definitely are not retiring from active church involvement. Maybe that’s why we call our Senior Adult Ministry “The J.O.Y. Group” (where J.O.Y. stands for “Just Older Youth”).
The J.O.Y. Group meets on the first Wednesday of each month for lunch, either at the church or at a local restaurant. The group enjoys a variety of activities, which range from attending theatrical productions to making crafts — and from touring sites of interest to playing a good old-fashioned game of “BINGO.”
Of course, senior adult involvement is in no way limited to The J.O.Y. Group. Many of our seniors continue to be core members of our choir, our Board of Deacons, our committees and our other ministries. We are deeply grateful for the contributions they have made and that they continue to make in order to keep Calvary a vibrant place to worship, grow and serve.
In the event that one of our seniors is no longer able to attend church activities on either a temporary or permanent basis, we continue to provide care and support through an active “at-home” ministry. At-home members can receive CD recordings of the Sunday morning worship service – along with copies of the Sunday bulletin – to help them stay informed about what’s happening in the life of the church. They also receive visits and notes of encouragement from the pastor and other church members. If you know someone who would benefit from our “at-home” ministry, please feel free to contact pastor Alex Martin.
