Where Can I Serve?
Jesus tells us as His disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Calvary Baptist Church is our mission to share the love of Jesus. It begins in our own families, our friends and community. Calvary Baptist Church is involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as doing a fundraiser parking cars, V.B.S. (Vacation Bible School) collecting food for a local food pantry, monthly fellowship dinners and 5th Sunday gospel Sings. Among other things.
Calvary Baptist is thrilled to be a part of spreading the message of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries through The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Rheuben South Missouri Offering, Annie Armstrong and The Missouri Baptist Convention, along with other missionaries supported with our money and with our prayers. Each year, a small team from several local churches travels to a foreign country to assist in missionary work.We encourage all to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it be by means of help financially, being a prayer partner, a word of encouragement, or what ever your spiritual gift God has a plan for it to be used here at Calvary Baptist.
Music and Praise
Calvary Baptist is a church that honors God in our music worship and is something our music minister strives for. We are a traditional baptist church with traditional hymns, with a touch of contemporary in our music specials and gospel sings. Every 5th Sunday we feature a gospel group in concert with refreshments and a time of fellowship afterwards. We also have some wonderful talent in our church that sing music specials each Sunday morning. If you are looking for a church to share your gift of music, use your talents and gifts to glorify God, then we are the church you have been looking for.
The usher team at Calvary Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Children’s Church (Not active at the present)
In order to give children the best Bible teaching possible, Calvary Baptist holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives children more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless amount of love for children. Each week a different Bible Story from the Old Testament or the New Testament is featured with activity pages and a craft to help children grow and come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
