  • Calvary Community +

    signupSeeks to familiarize Calvary attenders with ministries and programs here at our church. It provides a focus point for fellowship, discipleship, and service. There are opportunities to explore new developments, to benefit from excellent speakers, and to be actively growing in your faith. Calvary Community also helps people to engage with other people and God's Word. Consider taking part in this ministry and the opportunities available at Calvary Evangelical Free Church. We meet at 9 a.m. in the fellowship hall. Contact Wendell Amstutz for more information.

    We return to Max Lucado's book series "You'll Get Through This" during the month of January.  On Jan. 8, we will be on Chapter 9, "Is God good when life isn't?"
