Who are we?
Calvin is a warm, welcoming and caring community. We are Bible based, finding our roots in the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation, especially John Calvin—hence our name! We hold to the fundamentals of the Christian faith—things like: The infallibility of Scripture, the Trinity, the new birth. And because we believe that Christ claims our children as his own, we practice infant baptism. Old and young alike are called to claim Christ as their own by grace through faith. Preaching is central to Calvin church. We believe God’s Word addresses the heart and it compel us to go and witness for Him in every area of life! Calvin is also a confessional Church; we seek to be faithful to our three doctrinal statements: The Heidelberg Catechism, The Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort.
Worship services at Calvin are held on Sundays at 9:30am and 6:00pm. All are welcome to attend. Inside the main entrance at the back of our facilities is our fellowship hall. You will see directly into our auditorium where you will find plenty of seating. People will almost certainly welcome you and introduce themselves. Our ushers will supply a bulletin and help you find a seat. You will not be singled out as a visitor. The church building is wheelchair accessible and we offer nursery in both services. Sunday school is also available for children ages three to grade four in our morning service. We make a habit of fellowshipping with each other before and after every service. We are diverse in our dress. Business casual is generally the norm at Calvin.
Our Worship Services
Worship at Calvin is seen primarily as a dialogue between God and his people. God speaks through his word and the people respond in their prayers and praise. Our singing includes traditional hymnody and contemporary music. We have a fine pipe organ—which makes forgreat singing at Calvin. About twice a month our worship is also accompanied with a praise team. Bibles and hymnals are provided. Our evening services are generally less formal. We typically include prayer and hymn requests. Pastor Ken preaches the Bible following the teachings of the Heidelberg Catechism. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month, alternating in the morning and evening service.
