January Sermon Series

January Sermon Series

From Genesis to Malachi, God's people frequently find themselves in hopeless situations. Generations of captivity, oppression, wars and famine cause their futures to look despairingly bleak. Then God intervenes. The Red Sea parts. The sun stops. Fire falls from heaven. In one supernatural moment, God turns history around. 

Sundays in January
9 & 11 a.m.
Sanctuary

Join us this month as we explore stories from the Bible and see how—even today—God can miraculously change the course of the world and turn bad to good in his perfect time. The series begins on Jan. 15 with Pastor Ross.

Traveling? Sick? Stuck in snow? You can always watch our services live via calvaryweb.org.

Small Group Leaders Celebration

  • Saturday, Jan 21, 8:30 am

We’re launching our next season of small groups at Calvary! We’re looking for small group leaders who can facilitate discussion and coordinate a meeting schedule. Whether you're a current leader or interested in becoming one, we invite you to attend our Small Group Celebration. 

Saturday, Jan. 21
8:30–10 a.m.
Ministry Training Center

Join us as we celebrate the successes of 2016, and look ahead to what God has in store for small groups in the coming year. Calvary small groups provide an opportunity to help make a big church feel small, a place for deep friendships to develop and an opportunity for people to pursue God and His Word together. Small group leaders determine a group’s meeting schedule, facilitate group discussion and submit prayer needs and attendance.

Please RSVP to let us know you are coming. A light breakfast will be included.

Want to learn more about leading a group? Please email us.

Marriage Mentor Certification

Marriage Mentor Certification

  • Saturday, Jan 28, 9:00 am

The Couples Ministry at Calvary wants to create a powerful network of marriage mentor couples! The Marriage Mentor Academy, offered online by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, is a simple and fun way for couples to learn how to help other couples. It’s the process of having a seasoned and experienced couple (nobody said anything about being “perfect”) come alongside a less experienced couple to help show them the way.

Want to know if you are Marriage Mentor material? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you relatively happy in your marriage?
  • Do you both share a motivation to become trained as Marriage Mentors?
  • Are you able to laugh and learn from your mistakes?
  • Are you invested in growing your own marriage?
  • Are you committed to your spouse?
  • Are you willing to share some of your time to help another couple?

If you answered “yes” to these six questions, you’ve got what it takes! Of course, it takes much more than this to be effective as marriage mentors—12 skills to be exact—but that’s what you’ll learn in this certification process.

Saturday, Jan. 28 
9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Ministry Training Center
$50/married couple (includes course and lunch)

Pre-register required, and only 25 couple spots are available.

The Course is divided into eight, 25-minute video sessions with a quiz at the end to complete the certification. At the end of this training, you will be a certified Marriage Mentor.
