Jesus ate with his disciples – a lot. Whether sharing simple bread and wine or a full meal, Jesus shared himself and encouraged his followers us to do the same.
At nearly every event at Calvary, we share food: from the communion table to refreshments after every worship. Eating together, even if it is just a cup of coffee, gets us to pause from our often too busy lives and take a moment to enjoy the company of friends, and maybe make some new ones.
We are life-long learners. From our children's sermon during every worship to confirmation classes for our teens to our bible, book and movie studies for our older members, we promote learning with and from one another.
Our congregation also participates in round table discussions to open our minds to a variety of issues. From controversial subjects to theological practices, we strive to model thoughtful reflection and respectful discussion regardless of age or background.
Jesus said we are most faithful to God, most truly his disciples, and most authentically ourselves when we love others as he love us, especially the poor, hungry, thirsty, sick, oppressed and lonely.
Mission is also our attitude individually. We support our church’s mission efforts. We also seek to be mindful of the needs of those around us wherever we are, at work and in our communities, each of us seeking to do the good we can wherever we are.
