Our mission at Calvary is to know Christ and make him known. We do this by seeking to carefully guide each person, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to develop and reproduce a passionate, genuine relationship with Jesus Christ.
That is why we are introducing the Equipping Hour...
As the text above from Ephesians indicates, the role of those called to be leaders in the church is to equip the saints for the ministry they have been given! Each follower of Jesus has been given a gift to use to build up and grow the body, not only in knowledge but also in serving. We grow together in community, as a strong family—the family of God! Then, as a family, we encourage each other to be about the ministry to which God has called us!
The purpose of the Equipping Hour is to train the family in smaller settings, through the Word and relationships, equipping people to live for the Lord through the power of the Holy Spirit. In this way, we can work together to fulfill the mission of the church.
The goal and prayer are that this hour can be used to help you know what to do with what you know or have learned. You will be challenged to put what you have learned into action! You will learn how to think biblically and how to have a biblical worldview.
This hour, placed between the worship services, will allow for varied opportunities for you to be trained in areas you may never have thought of before, in intergenerational settings. It will allow you to get to know others in the family of the church who are also seeking to be equipped.
To start, four tracks will run simultaneously, along with a student ministries track. These may change if equipping in other areas is needed. The initial session will be six weeks, so that you can jump in and see which track will best equip you for your journey.
Please look at the following offerings and prayerfully consider the place God may have for you!
