  • Movie Night Discontinued

    October 12, 2016

    Greetings Faithful Movie Night Attendees,

     Thank you for your faithfulness in attending Calvary Community Church's Movie Night for the past 14 1/2 years.

     We would like to thank each one that has been a help in this ministry. With the availability of the many Christian movies coming to our local theater, it has been decided by Daniel and I along with the church board that we will no longer be holding monthly movie nights.

    It is important however, that you would continue to support these movies at our local theaters.  This will only cause more good movies to come. In the meantime, spread the word of the excellent movies out there.

     It has been a joy to have made your acquaintance.  It has been our pleasure to serve you as the "Movie Night Hosts".

    God Bless you richly,

    Daniel and Sylvie Beveridge

     P.S.  To all the faithful attendees we will see each other again. :)

  • Pastor Rogers retiring "again"

    June 28, 2016
    Pastor Rogers has submitted his resignation/retirement as of Oct. 23, 2016 and will bid farewell to the fine folk at Calvary.

    The Rogers were here when Calvary was built back in 1977 and returned on a part time basis 3 years ago.  During these three years we have focused on repairs needed to the building, completing a commercial kitchen and generally 'getting things ready for the next Pastor'
    Attendance has increased over the three years and we believe Calvary has a great future.
    We are most thankful to the team we have had to work with over these three years.  We could never have accomplished so much without the wonderful support of staff, both paid and volunteer.
    The Lord richly bless!
