A team of twelve people from Calvary Church have committed to giving eight days to serve in South America. Our team will be traveling to Asuncion, Paraguay, in August to work alongside missionaries David and Rosemarie DiTrolio. David and Rosemarie work with four Child Hope schools around Greater Asuncion. About 1500 students ages nursery through 12th grade attend the schools. The Mission of Child Hope is the transformation of children by means of a relationship with Jesus Christ through a quality education and other ministries of compassion. For many children the meal they receive in the school is the only meal they eat each day. Our team will minister in the […]
On August 27th, I concluded our Sunday series of messages on the subject of drawing near to God with a message from Psalm 57. I encourage those of you to watch the message online. Prayer is the natural response of those who recognize they need God and believe that God is willing and able to meet our needs. It is also the natural response of those who love God (Psalm 63:1) In August we also concluded our 21-day season of drawing near to God in prayer. It has been great to see so many wearing the Pray First wristbands which were created for us by Rapid Wristbands. I was especially […]

June 14, 2017 For the past 3 ½ years Courtney and I have had the pleasure of serving Calvary Church. First as a youth and Young Adults pastor in 2014 and then as a Next Gen pastor, the role I am currently filling. It was in 2014, about half way through my final year of Bible College, that I received a call from John Holt who was leading this church at the time asking if I would be willing to interview for an open position here leading teenagers. It was then that Calvary gave this young pastor a shot, and I am so glad that you did. I have learned […]
June 4, 2017 I am respectfully submitting my letter of resignation as the Equipping and Connections Pastor of Calvary Church effective June 29, 2017. Christina and I have counted it an honor and privilege to serve here for eight years; to think Alayna was one month old when we started the interview process with Pastor John. Calvary Church has, in many ways, become our family. Calvary Church has been the place where my children have come to know Jesus in a community (and that daddy and mommy are still daddy and mommy regardless of where we are). When I accepted and started my position as Children’s Pastor back on June […]
This past Sunday, Pastor Alex and his wife Jaclyn announced that they will be leaving our church family to follow God’s leading to plant a church in Delaware County. You can read what Pastor Alex shared with us on Sunday below. The Kranjec’s will still be with us through most of the Summer, but it is not too early to pray for wisdom, courage, and provision as they “step out of the boat” and follow the call of God. May 21, 2017 Dear Church Board and Calvary Family, For the last seven years, I have been honored to serve the Calvary family; first as a volunteer, then intern, then Media Director, and finally […]
