At Calvary316 we place a high emphasis on our Sunday service as it provides the optimal time for the church to gather to worship, partake of communion, and spend time in God’s Word. And while we believe consistent attendance on Sunday will afford most ample opportunity to foster genuine community with other believers, we also recognize the reality that many need another outlet for the development of these important relational connections. This is why we encourage those who attend Calvary316 to “Move Beyond the Sunday Service.” Every other initiative we place our energies and resources into (whether it be our monthly Church Fellowship – Ladies, Men’s, Community, or Youth Events, weekly Prayer Community or Free Cereal Bar, or Home Groups) have been created with the specific desire to help our members create community with one another.
Community Wide: Every Sunday morning before the service we run a full service cereal and coffee bar free for the whole family! In addition to the fact you can’t get cereal for breakfast at McDonalds, Starbucks, or even Dunkin, we offer cereal because this breakfast luxury is one of the few things our culture has still reserved for the home. While the coffee is available throughout the morning, we reserve the cereal for before the service. Come out early, grab a bowl of cereal, and fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Ladies Bible Study: (Begins February 6th) Every Wednesday at the Church | 7:00 pm
Namesake: When God Rewrites Your Story… Every name tells a story. Names in Scripture were often given to tell the story of a person’s identity, upbringing, or character. When God transforms lives, He often brings more than we bargained for: new identities, new journeys, even new names. The core themes of the Namesake study are transformation—the transformation God works in an individual’s life—and revelation—how God reveals Himself progressively in Scripture. Each week focuses on the story of a different biblical character or characters: Abraham and Sarah, Jacob, Naomi, Daniel, Peter. COST $10 for book. Study will end March 20th. To sign up email Theresa Entrekin ([email protected]).
Men’s Event: February 16th | 10:00 am
We’d like to invite you to join us for our semi-monthly “Eat, Pray, Shoot” event hosted at Larry Parkin’s home (390 N. Cross Lane, Monroe 30656). Not only do the men have breakfast together, but we spend time in prayer followed by target practice. YES! You can bring guns to the men’s event. If you have any questions contact Joe Entrekin ([email protected]).
Community Event: February 17th | 12:00 pm
In Act 2:46-47 we’re told the church “continued daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.” With this in mind following our Sunday Service we’re going to have a Potluck (Theme: Soup & Salad). Aside from providing everyone an opportunity to bring a dish to share with the church, these times provide a wonderful opportunity for everyone to hang out, enjoy good food, and develop meaningful community with one another.
