Families

At Calvary, we desire to support and strengthen families as we worship and grow together, developing marriages and homes that honor God.

We provide opportunities for couples and families to be encouraged and equipped by:

  • Teaching biblical truths to families and children (Ephesians 5:22–6:4)
  • Shepherding families to walk in a manner worthy of the calling (Ephesians 4:1)
  • Equipping families for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12)
  • Praying for husbands and wives to fulfill their biblical roles and responsibilities and to spiritually lead and nurture their children (Ephesians 6:18)

Interested in opportunities and activities focused on marriage, home, and family? Read more about our supporting ministries below and check out our Featured Events.

    Host an Orphan
    New Horizons for Children
    Information Meeting | Monday, March 27

    What if a summer “missions trip” could happen in your very own home? Calvary families have the unique opportunity to host orphaned, school-aged children who long to learn about Jesus and experience His love.

    Calvary HOME Ministry is partnering with New Horizons for Children (link goes to external organization page) to offer children from Latvia and Ukraine first-hand experiences with positive family relationships, spiritual nurturing, healthy hygiene, American culture, and immersion in the English language. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to hear the Gospel — they have a Heavenly Father who loves them dearly and is waiting to adopt them into His eternal family!

    Will you prayerfully consider hosting a child for six weeks (mid-June to mid-August) this summer?

    How you can help:
    • Host a child
    • Sponsor a child
    • Plan a group activity
    • Become a prayer partner
    Host family applications and deposits/sponsorships will be accepted through April; children will arrive in June.
     
    Estimated cost per child: $2,950

    Summer Hosts Information Meeting
    Monday, March 27
    6:30 PM, Room 222

    Interested in learning more about hosting a child this summer? Attend this helpful meeting and have your questions answered! To get a feel for the program, watch the New Horizons video and learn more about the children who participate.

    To register or learn more details, stop by the Galleria table on Sundays or contact Debbie Davis at ddavis716@yahoo.com.

    "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it." — Psalm 24:1
     
    When preparing end-of-life documents, it is important to consider your estate with an eternal perspective. Our seminar examines each component of estate design in light of God's Word.

    • Strengthening family relationships
    • Taking an all-encompassing approach
    • Care & guardianship of minor children
    • Minimizing spiritual challenges for beneficiaries
    • Tax considerations
    • Achieving greatest Kingdom impact

    There is NO cost for the seminar, and the process is absolutely confidential. You’ll benefit no matter your stage of life—whether you’re starting a family or reviewing plans as an empty-nester. Either update your current will and estate plan or get started now. Seminars are offered in the spring and fall.

    Register now for the Estate Design Seminar on Thursday, March 20. Choose 2 PM or 7 PM:
