You can expect life giving, bible based teaching every weekend at Calvary. Our mission is: To become fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry and evangelism. 

TEACHING ARCHIVE

KIDS MINISTRY

Little children 5 months through 5 years learn about Jesus and God’s love in a safe and loving environment during church services. They also look forward to playtime, crayons, play-dough, stickers, singing and snacks.

For K-5th graders weekend services are fun, interactive and inspiring. Kids experience corporate worship and teaching along with the opportunity to connect with other children their age on a more personal level in smaller group settings. We also provide innovative ways for parents to partner with us as we teach kids about God’s plan for their lives. 

LEARN MORE

STUDENTS

Every Sunday from 7:00 to 8:15p, high school students meet together in the Student Ministry Center (located in the lower back parking lot) and dive deep into the Word of God. These groups are essential to the development of the individual student’s Christian life, and teach each student how to read and apply the Bible to their lives. Along with this, students develop deep meaningful relationships with one another, and grow together as they grow towards Christ!

PERFORMING ARTS

Stage Right Ministry (Performing Arts) exists to provide an opportunity to introduce our community to Jesus through quality dramatic presentations and ministry. We believe drama provides a distinct snapshot of the soul and creates a unique opportunity to connect with others both on and off stage. Through presenting a sliver of life or an expression of emotion, dramatic presentations draw in the audience with hope, laughter, and even tears.

OPPORTUNITIES & REQUIREMENTS

We are always looking for people to join our team. If you have talent as an actor or dancer or if you just love the stage and want to learn, this is the place for you!  We have weekly classes, Wednesdays at 6:30 P.M in room 222, for those interested in joining. As well, seasonal performances are open to all, and sign up’s for these events are announced in the monthly newsletter, or here on our web page.

Are you more of a behind-the-scenes person? For every show we put on, there is an army of individuals needed to make it come to life. From make-up artists, seamstresses, hair stylists, set construction workers, stage crew members (our famous “Men in Black”), shoppers, organizers, inventory masters and prop masters, we can find a place for you. Do you favor the technical booth? We also are always looking for help with our sound, lights, and multimedia equipment.

Training is provided for all of these areas!

To get connected in the Performing Arts Ministry contact Linda Reynolds at 925-458-9100 x.149 or email nia@calvarytemple.org
