Weekly Highlights

“Calvary Prays” Campaign - Apr 11 - May 2
How's your prayer life? Join us after Easter for a four-week, congregation-wide campaign for prayer. Through sermon series, Bible studies, and special online prayer events, we'll study what prayer is and give practical tips for improving your prayer life. Let's commit to connecting with our risen Lord during this Easter season, for He has proven His power to help us!

Looking for something to pray about? Be sure to check out the website's Prayer Page, Here you can find resources to aid your prayer life and many prayers posted by fellow Calvary members. Do you have a prayer of your own? Click the Request Prayer button and you can add your own prayers to this page. When you request prayer, you choose how much or how little you share. You can even use this tool to send private prayers straight to the pastors. 

10-Minutes of Prayer
Struggling with what to pray for or how to pray? Pastor Reifsteck will host 10 minutes of guided prayer each Friday at 11:00 a.m. on Facebook. Each session will offer different models for prayer, to help you feel more comfortable in your public or private prayer time. Not able to make it right at 11:00 a.m.? All sessions will remain available to watch later on Facebook.
