ADULT MINISTRIES

 

Men’s Ministries

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

There are several opportunities for men to get together. Life Group opportunities are offered during the week and listed in the bulletin along with other special events.
   
Women’s Ministries

“A gracious woman retaineth honor” Proverbs 11:16

We have a women’s ministry with opportunities for women to get together at various times, in various activities, having a good time and caring for each other. There is a monthly lunch for ladies. Sunday mornings a Ladies Bible Study is held in the Dining Room at 11:00 am. Other activities include the annual Converge PacWest Women’s Conference held in January or February in Monterey at the Hyatt Regency. The retreat is organized through the Converge PacWest branch of our Baptist conference. Another activity is a Cabin Retreat normally held in Calaveras County in May.   
 
Senior Adults Ministry
A special Christmas luncheon is held for seniors in December. Some of the seniors enjoy coming to our First Friday Lunch Bunch in the Dining Room at 12:00 noon the first Friday every month. Other special activities are announced in the bulletin and newsletter.  
 
Worship Ministry
The mission of our worship ministry is to lead the attenders of Calvary in active and meaningful worship through a variety music. The Contemporary Service begins at 9:30 am and the Spanish Service follows at 11 am. Both services include instrumentalists and singers with sound, lighting and media operators assisting.
 
Prayer Team
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. We are a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. We can put your prayer requests on our email prayer chain and in our weekly bulletin prayer list if you would like to have many people praying with you. We have a prayer hour Thursdays in the Prayer Room at 6:00 pm and an opportunity to pray around the campus before services start on Sunday mornings.
 
 

Mission Outreach

We are thrilled to be part of spreading God’s kingdom around our community and the world. We offer a short-term mission trip to Mexico during spring break every year and have even sent teams to Haiti and South Africa. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.
