Our classes are integral pieces of our plan to grow disciple-making disciples of Jesus. They augment what is learned and used in Sunday Services, Life Transforming Small Groups, ongoing ministries (church and parachurch), and evangelizing.
Membership: Deciding If Calvary Church is Your Church Family
We believe that everyone should be a member of one church family. If you would like to learn more about Calvary Church to help determine if this is going to be your church family and/or if you want to be a Christian, then please plan to attend our Membership Class. You will learn about Christianity and the kind of church we are and be able to ask Pastor Frank any questions that you may have. You don’t even have to be a Christian to attend this class – all are welcome. This class is required for membership, but attendance at this class does not commit you to becoming a member.
Discipleship: Disciplines to Grow Spiritually
God’s intent for every Christian is to become more Christ-like in our every thought, word, and behavior. In this class, you will be presented with the spiritual disciplines (Bible study, prayer, journaling, Scripture memory, etc.) that will help you grow to be like Jesus.
Ministry: Finding Your S.H.A.P.E. for Ministry
Calvary Church encourages every member and attendee to participate in at least one ongoing ministry of the church or in one local parachurch ministry. Our ministries include Sunday Service (Musical Worship Team, Ushers, Greeters, A/V, etc.), Life Transforming Small Group leadership, Children (Nursery, Sunday School, Children’s Church, Awana, etc.), teen, local outreach events, Neighborhood Compassion, Missions, and administration (Deacons, Facilities, Finance, Hospitality, etc.).
This class is designed to help you discover your God-given S.H.A.P.E. - spiritual gifts, heart (passions), natural abilities, personality, and experiences – and to help place you in the right ministry for how God has built you.
Evangelism: Sharing the Good News
Evangelism is every Christian’s responsibility and privilege to share the Good News about Jesus Christ. Calvary Church encourages an intentional, relational evangelistic lifestyle based on authentic, caring relationships.
This class is designed to help motivate you and to show you how to personally share the Good News about Jesus with others. The goal is to give you a heart for the those without Jesus as Savior and a passion to use your time, talents, and treasure to bring the Good News to those in your life and elsewhere - to realize the importance of supporting missions in the US and around the world.
