Associate Pastor/Pastoral and Senior Care
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. For other questions, please contact the Family Ministries office or by phone at 336.714.5475.
Two new Support Groups (Suicide Loss Grief Support and Dementia Caregivers Support) will be starting in January. Please click here for more information.

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.
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.
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.
