Welcome to Calvary

Calvary Community Church exists to enjoy God, to enjoy each other and to bring others into this joy through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We meet together each Sunday at 10:00 am,
in small groups throughout the week in the Fall and Spring, and for prayer the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.

Enjoying God. Enjoying One Another. Bringing others into that joy.

We want to enjoy God and we want to enjoy one another and we want to share this joy with others. So, how do we do this at Calvary Community Church?

God’s Word, the Bible, is about knowing God and knowing Him better. On Sunday morning we enjoy music that is rich in biblical truth and teaching that is healthy and sound and equips us for the work of ministry. The Bible teaching is verse by verse through a book of the Bible.

Children’s church is all about children putting their hope in God. Each Sunday, the children depart right before the sermon to enjoy time that is just for them - crafts, snacks and Bible teaching. Throughout the year is what we call “Kids’ Night Out.” This is a fun-filled evening for kids and their friends to hear the gospel and to know that God loves them. Each summer there is Vacation Bible School, five days for children to know and learn about Jesus Christ.

Small groups meet in the Fall and Spring for about 8 weeks in various homes. This is a great time to strengthen our relationships with one another, to invite friends to join us, as we gather around God’s Word.

Wednesday evenings at 7, sometimes each Wednesday, but normally the second Wednesday of each month, is devoted to praying together.

Throughout the year we enjoy having lunch together following the morning service; a Saturday men’s breakfast or a ladies’ brunch.

And we get together for various Bible studies that want to know how we are to read and study the Bible or what it means to be a godly man or godly woman; studies that look forward to the return of Jesus Christ and studies that examine essential doctrines of God’s Word.

Missions. We are committed to global gospel growth beginning here in Northeastern Ohio and spreading to the uttermost parts of the earth through a missionary staff investing in people, overseas teaching trips and local community outreach.

Childrens Church

At Calvary, we want to see that the next generation would set their hope in God and not forget His works, but keep His commandments (Psalm 78:5-7). Each Sunday, children ages 4 through grade 5 are dismissed for Children's Church prior to the sermon. We want children to hear and know the gospel "through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation" Gospel Project. Our teachers use material called "The Gospel Project" and has been a great resource for children to "understand the Bible as not just a collection of stories, but one unified story - God's story of redemption."

Small Groups

Why join a small group? Why is it worth spending a Sunday evening or weekday evening together? Small groups at Calvary are an intentional and persistent gathering together to know one another and to serve one another. We share our lives with one another, pray together, laugh together, maybe cry with one another. It is a time to ask questions and bear one another's burdens (1 Thessalonians 2:7-8; Galatians 6:2). Small groups at Calvary encourage one another to pursue a glad dependence upon God (1 Peter 5:6-7). Small groups at Calvary meet God through His word (1 Peter 2:2-3). Small groups at Calvary seek to develop disciples of Jesus locally and globally (Matthew 28:19-20). Small groups at Calvary rejoice in the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). And small groups at Calvary are committed to living more and more like Jesus Christ
(Philippians 2:1-13).

Worship Service:

Begins at 10:00 AM. Nursery care is provided for infants up to age 4. Children ages 4 through grade 5 will be dismissed for Children’s Church prior to the sermon.

Prayer Meeting:

We gather on the second Wednesday of each month for a time of meaningful prayer. All are welcome.

Small Groups:

Short-term groups meeting in the Fall and Spring to deepen our relationships with each other through Bible study, discussion and fellowship. Join us!

Who are we?

We are believers who gather together to enjoy God, to enjoy one another and to invite others into this joy. Most important to this enjoyment is that we taste and see how good God is by continually craving God’s Word together (1 Pet. 2:2)

LEADERSHIP

The Bible is completely the inspired Word of God and constitutes the written revelation from God to man. By completely inspired, we mean that the 66 books of the Bible are in every word inspired by God in their original autographs.

God is the one living and true God, infinite and perfect in all His attributes. He is one in essence but eternally existing in three persons -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit -- each equally infinite and unchanging in being and attributes.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin, lived a sinless and impeccable life. He died on the cross to pay for the sins of believers, rose bodily from the dead on the third day, ascended into the presence of God the Father and will return in power and glory. The purpose of the incarnation was to reveal the fullness of God to man, to seek and save lost sinners, to die a sacrifice for sin and to eventually rule a physical Kingdom.

The Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, is God. He possesses all that is divine. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to execute and empower the divine and sovereign will of God.

Man, in his original state, was created free from sin with a rational nature for the purpose of glorifying God. Man chose to separate himself from God and thus incurred both spiritual and physical death for himself and mankind. The condition of fallen man from birth is that of darkness of mind, depravity of will, and death in the soul. Man by nature is dead to God and unable to save himself apart from the intervention of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation is entirely the work of God and not man. This salvation was pre determined before the foundation of the world; it was Christ’s redemptive work that atoned for man’s sin as He carried believers’ guilt. Men are saved and justified on the grounds of Christ’s death alone, by God’s grace alone, through faith alone.

Resurrection will occur physically for both those who have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and those who have not. The saved will be resurrected to an eternal state of joy with God, the unsaved to eternal punishment and suffering without God.
