Family & Friends Day
You’re invited to a special day of worship, fellowship, and fun at Calvary!
Join us for worship at 9:45 AM in the Sanctuary. Then stay for lunch outside and an afternoon of fun for all ages! Feel free to dress casually.
From 11:30 AM–3:30 PM, we’ll gather at the CHAMP fields for lunch and activities — with MORE inflatables than ever for the kids!
NEW! We’ll also have waterslide activities, so bring a towel and a change of clothes. It will be a splash!
Remember to bring your lawn chair or picnic blanket for seating on the fields. Restrooms and water will be available in the pavilion.
We hope everyone in our church family will join us for this annual day of fun — including our Calvary Christian Academy, Calvary Child Development Center, and CHAMP Sports families. Feel free to invite friends and neighbors, too!
Lunch is FREE! It will be served in the tent at the front of the CHAMP fields.

Family Transitions: Parents of 3rd & 4th Graders
Sunday, October 1 | 11:15 AM, Conference Room A
As your children participate in worship services and begin reading Scripture on their own, they may struggle to fully understand it — just as we adults do! Join us to discuss ways your family can promote Bible reading, Bible understanding, and Bible application in your child's life.

Estate Design Seminar
When preparing financial plans, it is important to consider both the current and eternal perspectives. Calvary Estate Design Seminars are focused on future planning and key components of estate design in light of God's Word. In addition to addressing typical concerns, you will be invited to ask yourself — what would the Lord have me do? Objectives include:
There is NO cost for the seminar, and the process is 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 plans or get started now!
Estate Design Seminars are typically offered twice each year with afternoon and evening options.
Calvary Stewardship Ministry is focused on helping individuals and families approach day-to-day finance and milestone life events with a smart and biblical foundation through classes, seminars, and confidential individual/family counseling.
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." — 2 Corinthians 4:18

Family Night Challenge
Calvary highly recommends that every family designate one night a week for Family Night. Life is busy, and if we don’t plan to spend time together and enjoy each other, our most important relationships can be neglected.
Planning one night each week is valuable for the time and interaction itself. It also helps us refocus on those important relationships. It takes work to block out the same night every week. No doubt, an exception may have to be made from time to time, but you show your priorities when you are able to make it happen consistently. We find that most families really look forward to Family Night!
So, what is Family Night? We suggest that you choose a consistent night each week and plan to include these elements:
You have accomplished a number of important things when you become intentional with Family Night:
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." — Deuteronomy 6:5–7
