Calvary desires to speak the peace of God into the brokenness of our world in very personal and practical ways. As a caring community this ministry to others starts and thrives in each of our small groups (“Member to Member”), flows through every level of leadership (“Leaders to Members”), and includes particular resources for those times when critical need requires specific attention.

Surviving the Holiday Event

Saturday, November 21
1:00p–3:00p
5101 Family Center (Calvary Annex)
5101 Country Club Road
Winston-Salem, NC 27104

Our Surviving the Holidays seminar is designed to help those separated or divorced navigate the difficulties of the holiday season. This one time event is open to anyone. You’ll be welcomed by warm, caring people who understand what you are going through and who want to help.

Member to Member

Those in our groups and teams are called to care for one another in ways that not only build up the body of Christ but also show the love of Christ to those who don’t yet know Him. For more information about how you can connect in to a small group community, please check out our Discipleship page.

Leaders to Members

Calvary’s ministry leaders, from discipleship groups to serving teams and staff members, are called to minister to those whom they lead. Most of the personal, relational and spiritual needs of this faith community are met by the believers who make up the body of Christ.

Family Care Resources

In certain situations any of us might find ourselves in need of resources that address a particular need. Some of the resources available at Calvary are listed below.

Support Groups

Calvary has a variety of support groups designed to provide hope and encouragement in a hurting world. Some of the support groups we offer are:

  • Beyond Love (A support group designed specifically for wives whose husbands have been unfaithful in marriage through pornography and sexual addiction)
  • Dementia Care Giver Support (Compassionate and focused help for caregivers feeling overwhelmed by the relational toll of Alzheimer’s and other such diseases)
  • DivorceCare (A national program offering support for those who are walking through one of life’s most difficult experiences.)
  • Faithful and True (A support group for men who desire to live godly lives of sexual integrity and moral accountability by providing confidentiality, acceptance, and trust.
  • GriefShare (A national support group for people who have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend through death)
  • Suicide Loss Grief Support (A safe place for survivors of suicide loss to come together and talk openly with others who have shared a similar experience)

All of our current support groups are listed on Calvary’s Group Finder. You can also use these links for additional information about GriefShare or DivorceCare

Pastoral and Senior Care

In seasons of crisis and need in our church family, the Pastoral Care Office serves as communications hub and resource coordinator, mobilizing our church family and engaging our pastoral staff as we walk together in compassionate community.

You can reach the Pastoral Care Office by email at membercare@calvarynow.com or by phone at 336.714.5430. In addition, after normal office hours, pastors and others are on call to respond to crisis and critical need by calling 336.765.5542 and following the prompts to access the pastor on call.

ElderCare

The ElderCare Ministry Team coordinates care and fellowship for our homebound friends who can no longer attend Bible Fellowship and Worship on campus at Calvary. ElderCare volunteers send cards, call, or make regular visits with our homebound friends and keep them connected in community with our church family.

For more information please email eldercare@calvarynow.com.

Bereavements

If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, our pastors want to know that so we can pray for you and walk this journey with you. You can share that information by calling the Pastoral Care Office at 336.714.5430.

If you are looking for additional support during this season, Calvary has a GriefShare group and our Stephen Ministry. Contact information for those ministries is listed previously on this page.

When a loved one passes away, it is critical for our grieving brothers and sisters to know and experience the love and prayers of God’s people. We post bereavement information as quickly as details become available so that the church family can respond in prayerful and practical ways. To subscribe to bereavement updates, please click here.

Prayer Requests

Calvary is a praying church. It is a joy to pray for each other in praise; it is a privilege to pray for each other in the valleys of life, reminding each other of the tender security of our Father’s Hand.

To share a prayer request with the Pastoral Care Office, please click here for an online form or complete a Connect Card in any of our Sunday worship services.
