Good News...Great Joy

Christmas at Calvary is a special time to remember the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. The announcement of His birth gave hope to a world bogged down by sin and despair. We hear this good news and can have great joy when we receive God's gift of salvation!

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Luke 2:10





No Wednesday Prayer Service or Awana Clubs on December 25 or January 1.

 Have you heard? Christmas Choir Cantata

Christmas Choir Cantata

Have You Heard?
A Celtic Christmas Celebration

Sunday, December 22  |  6:00 pm

The Calvary Choir revisits the Christmas story using the captivating Celtic musical language. There's something wonderfully compelling about Celtic music with its lively rhythms from the hoop drum and the stylistic ornamentation used by the whistles and pipes. It's unique and joyous music. What better way to tell the joyful story of Christmas!
