Starting Point is for those who are new to Calvary as well as those who have been attending for many years. It is designed to help you learn more about Calvary … who we are, where we’re headed, and how you can become part of what God is doing here. Whether you are still praying about whether this is where God is leading you to worship, or you are ready to take your next step of engagement, we invite you to join Pastor Rob and some of our staff at one of the times listed below.
When you attend the Starting Point class, you will be given a Calvary Handbook that contains lots of helpful information about Calvary. Many of the resources referenced in that Handbook are listed at the bottom of this page.
Starting Point is typically offered on the first Sunday morning of each month alternating between Calvary Central and Calvary West campuses. Click the “REGISTER” button below for information on upcoming classes.
Our Sunday morning classes at Central Campus meet in the Chambers Room from 9:15a-11:30a when children of all ages can attend a Bible Fellowship class.
Our Sunday morning classes at West Campus meet in room 3304 at 9:45a when your children can attend a Bible Fellowship class or Journey Kids Worship.
Our Wednesday evening classes meet in Dining Room B (Central Campus) and in room 3306 (West Campus) from 6:00p-7:30p when your children can attend either AWANA (for preschool and children) or The Link (formerly called STATIK – for middle and high school). You can also check in at 5:00p to receive a free pass for you and your family to eat at the Calvary Fellowship Dinner on the Wednesday evening of your class. (Plan to take your children to a children’s program, Awana or The Link (formerly STATIK), at 5:45p then return to Starting Point class beginning at 6:00p.)
Calvary welcomes into membership those who have received Christ as their Savior, been baptized by immersion as a testimony of personal faith and share our core convictions as expressed in the church covenant. Or said differently, we want to know that you have received Christ as your Savior, you have been baptized by immersion, and we ask that you attend the Starting Point class.
The following links will provide you with detailed information on the membership process, what we believe about baptism and the My Next form used to begin this process.
