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.

FREE COFFEE & CEREAL EVERY SUNDAY: 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.

In place of our normal monthly Potluck at the church, this summer after the service on July 18th, we’re going to be having a Picnic at the Parkins. In addition to being one of our Elders, Larry and his wife Leslie have been members of our church since the beginning. Not only do all their adult children also call Calvary316 home, but the family has been blessed with a wonderful spread of land roughly 10 minutes from the church in Bold Springs.

Not only will there be plenty of room for everyone to hang out and spend time with one another, but the pool will be open for everyone’s enjoyment. Festivities will kick off around 12:45 PM or whenever you can get there from church. To simplify the morning for all those involved, we would ask that every family provide their own food and beverages. It would also be helpful if everyone brought additional outdoor chairs as seating is limited around the pool.

Community Event: August TBA | 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! 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.
