Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Calvary Bible Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. CBC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church, to preparing the church bulletins.
CBC is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. In ten years we have supported missionaries in many countries—Zimbabwe, Uganda, Congo, and here in the US. Occasionally a small team from our church travels to one of these three countries to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the sound ministry. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Calvary Bible Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The usher team at Calvary Bible play an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, overseeing church offerings, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Calvary Bible Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. CBC elders serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Calvary Bible Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, before the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, we encourage our members to pray for their pastor, the list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
We Are A Family Integrated Church
This means that in each and every CBC service your child[ren] (kindergarten and up) are welcome to participate and stay with you in service. Our desire is to acclimate our young ones to the worship environment they will hopefully one day be a part of as they grow up. For the young ones we provide a clipboard full of pages to keep your child engaged and for “in service” note taking! If at anytime a parent needs to be excused with their child, we provide our foyer as a place to work with your child in transitioning them into main service.
