Our Story | Calvary First The church is a living entity and just like the nature of all living things, it grows and changes over time. From the early beginning in the 1950’s until today we have been growing and maturing. In the life of every church there are great triumphs and moments of frustration and regret. We have encountered them all, yet God has been gracious and faithful and has preserved Calvary First. She has seen multiple merges with other congregations, uniting for the Kingdom cause. She has weathered her share of storms and has come through them better prepared for the future. With great appreciation for those who have built the history that brought us here, we anticipate the joys of continuing their efforts and reaching a new generation. This is only a glimpse of who we are and where we are going.

This week's last and FINAL challenge -- just in time for tomorrow! Who are you inviting?

Challenge #5: Go public!

Daily challenge #4: Who has God positioned directly in front of you that is in need of a perspective of hope? Don't just pray for wisdom--pray for courage. And then encourage them!

Challenge #3! Based off the challenges up to this point, how have you seen your relationships take change through the Holy Spirit?

"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love." (Galatians 5:13)

We loved getting texts/messages that folks had completed the first challenge yesterday! Today's challenge #2 is ready! Adopt this spiritual workout and allow it to place your eyes and ears in expectation mode. #dailychallenge #spiritualworkout #calvaryfirst

Following yesterday's message, today marks Day #1 of our spiritual workout challenge. Each day completed marks 1 degree closer to coming out of our current realities spiritually stronger and better than ever before.

Message or comment! Let us know as you complete the daily challenges!

[04/16/20]   Draw close to your Heavenly Father and He will draw close to you. God is never farther than just a word away.

Deeper Into Scripture: A 14-Day Plan

You’re invited!

Yesterday, we announced starting a 14 day journey together as a church family to become closer to God through his word. Jesus was so purposeful in his final 14 days of life. The way you find your purpose is the same, by becoming closer to the father.

Start day 1 below! Joshua Chappell wants to read this Plan with you.

Even though the current circumstances are unpredictable and out of the ordinary, we are very grateful for the ability to still gather together online!
Thanks for joining us!

Because when we realize our time is limited, we tend to make better use of our limited time.
Join us this Sunday morning, LIVE on facebook, at 10:30, as we travel where Jesus traveled.

[03/19/20]   Question:

If God is so “rich in mercy”, why would he not show mercy and end all of this suffering?


Every religion outside of Christianity tells us that suffering is bad and if we endure we will inherit paradise. Christianity says suffering can actually be for our good, and “all things will be used for good for those who love God” (Romans 8:28). Sometimes suffering, not flourishing, is the only way God can get our attention and reveal our need for him. And “need for God” is the best place to be.

Student ministry is still happening!! ... Online. 😂 Our youth will still be involved in discipleship, games, challenges, and fun as we face a new frontier of ministry.

A midweek update from our pastor at Calvary First:

How is everyone doing? How can we pray for you?
