Ministries for adults
In a church our size, it's important for groups to get together for the purpose of edifying each other and developing relationships. Listed below are some of the ministries we have available for adults.
College and career
Just into college or well into a career, this dynamic group includes single men and women whose goal is to demonstrate a love for the Lord by engaging in edifying friendships, energetic outreach, and excellent service. This class offers single adults an opportunity to grow spiritually and to be a part of a church family while getting established. Fun activities and friendship opportunities are scheduled year round.
GEMS stands for Genuine Enthusiastic Mature Saints. It is Calvary Baptist Church's ministry group for senior members. We desire to be serving the Lord as well until He comes or calls. There are many opportunities to have fellowship through activities, occasional trips to points of interest, and of course, meals together. Participating in the GEMS is a great way to serve the Lord and have fellowship with other church members in your "senior" years.
Women minister uniquely to women and in the church. It does not matter if you are single, married, divorced, or widowed. It is our goal to "build one another up in the faith" so that we may be effective Christian women in our homes, our church, and our communities. We offer many opportunities to serve Christ and meet the needs of others, enjoy the fellowship and encouragement of other Christian women.
Our church is a satellite of the Faith Bible Institute Program, or FBI. This is an open ministry for all adult members in the church as a way to deepen and develop your understanding of the Scripture. More information can be found at www.faithbibleinstitute.com.
The CHAOS group (Christ Has All Our Solutions) is made up of those too old for the young marrieds’ group, but not old enough to be in the GEMS group. Typically, the age group is approximately from 35-55. This group encourages those in the other groups to attend, as there tends to be some overlap based on need and activity. We want to make sure folks understand that this is not a couples-only group, and single adults are more than welcome and encouraged to participate.
At Calvary Baptist Church, we have a vibrant community of young married couples, some with children, some without, who are learning to balance the demands of marriage, family and career. Married life brings new challenges and it’s helpful to adjust to those challenges with the help of other couples, which is why this group was created.
Being a godly husband or father can be a challenge in this wicked world. We strive to encourage the mans leadership in the home and we do what we can to build-up healthy family units. Our men's ministry meets a few times each year for a Prayer Breakfast as we seek to have our heavenly Father's influence in every aspect of our lives.
Music is a powerful language that can move a person to the praise and worship of God. There are several avenues of service in the music ministry here at Calvary. Congregational singing allows every member to lift his voice to sing praise to a holy and righteous God. The church choir sings on Sunday mornings and evenings. Special vocal music is provided by soloists, duets, trios, and ensembles. Instrumentalists provide special music during the offering.
