Please read below thoroughly because this page includes necessary information about service times and important instructions for everyone’s health and safety. Also, we know that not everyone will be able to attend these outdoor services for varying reasons so we want you to know that we will continue to provide our online services at calvarybible.com each week. It is important that we all stay unified, gracious, and humble in these days. We are committed to serving you with excellence.
Pastors Tom and Thomas
