GROW  CONNECT  SERVE


grow-connect-serve

A new Vision for mission and ministry was adopted in February, 2009 at Calvary.

MISSION STATEMENT

We are called to help all people of all ages to grow spiritually through word and sacrament so that we may love and serve our church family, our community, and all of God’s people in Christ’s name.

VISION STATEMENT

We are a church family that encourages all people of all generations to share their gifts to do God’s will by:

Growing in our Christian faith:

Support our youth with activities, resources and mentors needed to nurture their faith journey

Pass on the faith to all ages through devotions, caring conversations, rituals, traditions and service

Provide opportunities for spiritual renewal, worship and biblical application

Connecting with each other:

Become the Body of Christ, warmly welcome all who come as we continually build up one another with God’s love

Inspire and encourage groups of people connected by similar passions or struggles to gather, support each other and serve

Develop new ways within the congregation of initiating, empowering, organizing, communicating and leading that fit the demands of current lifestyles

Serving Others:

Create experiences for individuals to joyfully discover how their passions intersect with God’s mission for the world

Actively listen to the needs of those in our community and our world, and respond in ways that engage our congregation’s unique gifts

Create in each of us a confidence to serve God's Word, emboldened by God's call and assured by God's grace.
