We are focused on living as Jesus taught, being who Christ calls us to be, in the here and now. Some people like to make life a little tougher than it is; we don't. We believe Christ lightens the load and our life together should reflect that. Jesus didn't call us to do good deeds (as if quotas or trying harder could save us), but to himself, where service and love are a by-product of knowing & obeying the Lord (being disciples). We blow it bad sometimes (each and all) but we admit it, and trust God to forgive us, teach, and lead us.
On Sundays we gather for teaching from God's word, mutual encouragement, and to worship the One who first loved us and leads us to love our neighbor. We host a free weekly meal on Thursdays at 6pm, for any who need.
Free clothing, toiletries, and pet food are also available on Thursdays from 4-6pm. Calvary hosts several bible study groups, weight loss support groups, a preschool, and a narcotics anonymous meeting.

Calvary, only appears in Luke 23:33, from the Latin name Calvaria, which was used as a translation of the Greek word Kranion , by which the Hebrew word Gulgoleth was interpreted, "the place of a skull."
Calvary was where God's love and grace inhabited human suffering. Named for the place where Jesus died on the cross, we are reminded that sometimes winning looks like dying, and death comes before life. The grave comes before resurrection. We die to our ways, wants, works, and will, to be new creations -- born again.
This side of heaven, we believe we have an ongoing struggle with ourselves and our sin, but ultimately the victory in Christ. So this will be a place for do-overs, new beginnings, try-agains, one more time, fresh starts, and infinite 2nd chances.
