Men's Ministry "6501 FM"

“And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” – 2 Timothy 2:2
There is an old saying that goes, “As the men of a church go so goes the church” and at Calvary Chapel we believe that is true and is why we place a strong emphasis on our mens ministry. Besides weekly bible studies on Sunday and Wednesday night our men’s ministry provides weekly bible studies on Monday nights and Wednesday mornings. 

Many activities and events are scheduled throughout the year for our men to come together and to get away. Everything from mission trips to work days, retreats, and recreational activities, there is something for everyone. Be sure to check out our " Upcoming Events" page to stay up to date.

Bible Study

Monday Nights 6:30-8:30pm in the Cafe.

Wednesday Morning 6:00am in the Cafe

Children's Ministry 

Each Sunday morning we have Sunday School for children ages 2 years old through 6th grade. We also have Nursery for infants up to 23 months.

Every Wednesday Night during the school year we have AWANA for children 3 years old-6th grade. During the summer we take a break from AWANA, and have class similar to Sunday School. Nursery is available year round.

Parents are encouraged to observe their child's class and to get involved in Children's Ministry.

Nursery (0-23 months)

Our nursery is clean, safe, and staffed with people who are excited to serve you can care for your little ones.

Preschool (ages 2-4)

Our preschool classes are led by a great team of dedicated workers. We have an age appropriate approach to learning the Word that is fun and interactive.

K-6th Grade

We offer separate Sunday School classes for each age group. During service we worship and praise the Lord, take offering, play games, go over scripture and memory verses, and most importantly teach the Bible.

College & Young Adult Ministry

As the College and Young adult Ministry we hope to foster discipleship in leadership, studying the word, prayer, fellowship, and evangelism. Each of these is an essential and practical part of training up the next generation of adult men and women in the church.

Groups meet weekly to talk about what students and young adults have been reading or what God is teaching them in their lives.

Parents are encouraged to come see how our service runs with their student. We have many events throughout the school year and summer: Summer & Winter Camp, Whatever Wednesdays (service projects) , Immersed (swimming & Bible Study), Weekly Bible Studies, and much more.
