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.
Men’s Event: September 29 | 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: October 7 | 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: Chili & Soup). 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.
Ladies Event: October 14 | 1-4 pm
Sunday Brunch: Take an afternoon off and come join the ladies of Calvary316 for a afternoon brunch at the home of Theresa Entrekin. For more information or direction, please email [email protected]. This is a free event and open for all the ladies 11th grade and up!
Community Event: October 31 | 5:30 pm
Every Halloween the Calvary316 community sets up a carnival style outreach at Pastor Zach’s home located in The Providence Club neighborhood. Because much of Walton County remains rural, thousands come to this neighborhood to trick or treat. For example, in addition to the bounce house and face-painting, last year we gave out 3000 pieces of candy! If you want to help with this event not only do we need tons of candy, but we also need volunteers. To help email Pastor Zach directly at [email protected]
Ladies Event: November 30 | 7-10 pm
Fashion Truck Show & Stop: Take Just in time for the holidays! We have a special evening of tasty treats and fashion truck show (requires a minimum of 10 participants for us to book). Please RSVP to [email protected] to attend and for directions. This is a free event at the home of Rebecca Haydell.
Ladies Event: December 14 | 7-10 pm
Annual Christmas Wrapping Party: Bring your gifts and come to the wrapping party! We will be meeting at the church to make the task of wrapping all those gifts more fun and social! BYOB: Bring your own boxes! Wrapping paper, tape and ribbons are provided for a small fee of $5.00 to help cover costs.
