Associate Pastor/Family Ministries
We believe that God established marriage and family relationships for our blessing as well as for His glory. And we believe that He has given us practical guidance in His Word … guidance that allows us to remain grounded in Him and connected to others in authentic relationships. If you are looking for solid answers and practical tools that can strengthen your marriage and family, we invite you to check out the opportunities on this page.
Calvary’s Marriage & Family Ministry offers various opportunities that can enrich your family relationship, equip you for ministry to others and connect you with others who care about you and your family. Many of our current opportunities and resources are included below with more to be added in the weeks ahead.

In addition to providing enriching and equipping opportunities at Calvary, our staff is working to implement a Family Enrichment Initiative in Forsyth County. This Initiative is designed to provide Christ-centered resources to the families of our community.
The Family Enrichment Initiative will include a website offering family and marriage opportunities, faith-based counselors and additional resources in our community. This initiative is also working to organize certain events such as Community Date Nights.
Every one of us is a part of a community. Most of us are part of a family, all of us live in a neighborhood, and many of us are members of a church or other organization. As members of this community, Calvary wants to provide a space where families can learn and grow together.

This will be a fun night full of laughter, dessert, and tools to strengthen your marriage – you don’t want to miss it! Get this: Calvary couples who register for this event are able to invite another couple who doesn’t have a church they call home for FREE. And any First Responders are able to register at no charge.

The Suicide Loss Grief Support Group offers a safe place for survivors of suicide loss to come together and talk openly with others who have shared a similar experience. No matter where you are in your personal journey, you will find understanding, encouragement, and support to give you hope and healing. Our meetings are open only to those who have lost a family member, friend, or coworker to suicide (not to observers or those who have survived a suicide attempt). Each suicide loss has equal value in the group. This group meets at 6:00p on Sunday evenings in room B 2404. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Using the book by Gary Chapman, Ed Shaw, and Debbie Barr this group will address the challenges and stresses of the caregiver’s journey and offer insight from personal stories and case studies to help maintain emotional intimacy in the midst of AD.

Its principles have already helped hundreds of families, and it can help yours, too. This group meets at 4:00p on the 2nd Sunday of every month in Room B 2108.
