Visiting for the first time?
You are welcome in worship at Calvary. Here are a few things to expect when you join us on Sunday mornings:
Worship. Worship begins at 11am on Sunday mornings. We worship in English with Spanish also in the service. Our service normally lasts for an hour. After worship, we gather in Woodward Hall for Fellowship Hour where we greet each other and catch up. We would be honored to have you visit with us to get to know you better. When you visit, please fill out a visitor card. Feel free to contact Pastor Leah with any questions.
Parking Garage. We have a parking garage available for parking on Sunday mornings right next to Calvary on 8th St, NW. You can have your parking ticket validated by the ushers and it is free to use the garage. Here is a map of the entrances for Calvary.
Sunday School. Sunday School is offered for children and adults every Sunday from 9:45-10:45am. For more information about classes and locations, click here. Childcare is available beginning at 9:30am.
Lectionary. As many church traditions do, we follow the Revised Common Lectionary. More information about the lectionary can be found here. It breaks up the Bible into three years so that over the course of three years, most of the Bible is read aloud in worship. We read a Hebrew Lesson, the Psalter, the Epistle Lesson and the Gospel Lesson. We find this to be a rich tradition in the way we encounter Scripture.
Pastors in Robes. Our pastors robe each week. We always wear stoles that are the same color as the season of the church year, which we celebrate. For more information about the liturgical year, please follow this link.
Spanish in Worship. We have many languages represented in worship, but you will hear Spanish each week. Scripture readings and prayers will often be in Spanish. For those who speak Spanish, live sermon translation is available through headsets.
Where All Are Welcome. As we discern our call as followers of Jesus Christ, all members of Calvary Baptist Church have full and equal access to all pastoral services and opportunities for leadership.
