Message - God told them to Go, and God went with them
 

Pastor: Throughout the Bible, the history of Israel, and throughout Christian history, God has set aside “sacred spaces” where heaven and earth meet. Such spaces are like the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist. God sets apart ordinary materials for holy purposes, and they become special mediations of God’s presence and action in us. 

 

People: This building having been known as Calvary United Methodist Church has served such a sacred purpose for us.

Children's Chat

 When we leave home with our family, we are still a family wherever we go.

Calvary is still a church, even without a building!
