It can be intimidating to walk into a church for the first time. Whether you’ve attended church before, or this is all new for you, we are glad you’re here and hope you feel welcome!
A typical Sunday at Calvary looks like this:
9:30 AM Adult Sunday School takes place in the library. Kids meet downstairs or in the gym for Kids Club- a time of games and crafts. Coffee and tea are available in the lobby. The adult Sunday School time is used to dive deeper into the academic side of Scripture. The Bible is a historical book rich with details about events which took place thousands of years ago. All are welcome to attend Sunday School, the current study is about becoming Disciples of the Word.   
10:45 AM Worship Service begins in the sanctuary. As humans, there is an innate desire to worship deep within our souls. Whether we worship money, success, family, security, fame, respect, or any number of other idols, our hearts are designed to seek to worship. As believers, we are called to worship the one true God. Worship happens through song, prayer, giving, and interacting with God. This service is focused on revering God and responding to His goodness. The Bible is preached in a verse by verse format. Songs are sung that remind us who God is and who He has made us to be. An offering is received so the church can continue to operate with staff and building maintenance, as well as to support missionaries we care for around the world. 
CHILDREN are dismissed partway through the service (look for the GREEN slide on the front screen to indicate dismissal). Kids ages 3-11 meet an usher at the back of the sanctuary and are walked downstairs to the Children’s Church classroom. At this time, they learn a Bible story, answer questions about that story, and do a craft or coloring sheet associated with the story. Snacks are served and a game is played. When the weather is nice, kids are supervised outside on the play equipment after the lesson. Safety is a priority for Calvary kids. There is always an usher with eyes on the entry doors to the church building. 
NURSERY is available in the Fellowship Hall for infants through age 2. There is a nursing mother’s room available in the women’s restroom area.
Why dismiss kids from the service? 
We feel parents need time to nourish their spiritual growth without distraction. Dismissing kids gives parents the opportunity to focus in as well as allows kids to learn a spiritual lesson at their level of understanding. Parents are the spiritual leaders of their children, we hope you take time to ask your child what they learned during Children’s Church and how that applies to the way they live their lives. 
There is no such thing as a perfect church. We are all human. We are all completely dependent on a Savior, Jesus Christ. Churches are flawed and sometimes messy. No single church meets the needs and expectations of everyone who attends. However, there is an indescribable richness to coming together with fellow believers and choosing to look past differences in style or opinions and, instead, worship a good and holy God with unity and love for each other. We all need community. You are invited to join us here, in the Calvary Bible Church community of believers.
