Supporting & Equipping Families


At Calvary, we want families of all kinds to know and share the love of Jesus Christ. We strive to equip and encourage parents to build strong households within Christ-centered homes, sharing the love of God, the beauty of the Gospel and a life of faith with our next generation.

Everything we do and teach is consistent with the Bible as the Word of God, and we continually pray for God to be glorified and His will to be done in our homes and community.

Join us for opportunities on an ongoing basis to support and strengthen relationships, marriages, and families at all stages of life! 

Family Transitions: Sessions designed to help you disciple your children through different stages in life: practical insight with a biblical foundation.

Family Milestones: Celebrating significant moments of commitment, achievement, and growth. Find out more about participating in Child Dedication and Baptism, and stay connected for the latest opportunities!

    Tying the Knot
    Thinking about getting married?
    Six Tuesdays beginning Sept 11
    6:30–8:00 PM

    "Tying the Knot"
    Tuesdays: September 11, 18, 25 & October 2, 9, 16
    6:30–8:00 PM, Room 402

    Thinking about getting married? Engaged? Newlywed?

    You're invited to spend six Tuesday evenings with Pastors Rodney Navey and Jim Pile addressing foundational issues and biblical principles that will help you establish and maintain a healthy marriage.

    In each session, we'll work through issues like conflict, expectations, communication, finances, and intimacy. You'll get to know your spouse on a deeper level by assessing personality, birth order, and more.

    Don't be surprised by a little homework, too! We'll use Rob Green's book, Tying the Knot: A Premarital Guide to a Strong & Lasting Marriage, as a realistic, hopeful, and actionable guide toward a Christ-centered marriage.

    Sunday, September 23

    Family Transitions (formerly Parenting Milestones)

    Sunday, September 23
    11:15 AM–12:15 PM, Room 200

    At this young stage, 1st grade children are already beginning to read! Now is the perfect time for parents to begin teaching basic Bible skills. The Parenting Transitions class will help equip parents to lead their children to love God's Word, read it, and understand it. 

    Our goal is to encourage you in your God-given assignment as a parent. Please join Su Trull, Director of Children's Ministry, in Room 200. No registration needed.

    Equipping Parents of 1st Graders —
    “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 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. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4–9

    Upcoming Family Transitions Sessions:

    • October 14 — For Expectant Parents
    • November 11 — For Parents of 2-year-olds
