Frequently Asked Questions

If you're looking to visit us for the first time, we're here to answer your questions.

Where do I go when I get there?

When you pull in to the parking lot, find yourself a parking spot. From there, simply enter through the front doors and allow our Guest Services volunteers to help you find your way. If you have kids, head to the left to the check-in kiosks, otherwise enjoy conversation in the Commons or head straight into the Sanctuary to get ready for service.

What do you do for kids?

We're all about family here at Calvary, which is why we make sure that we provide the best experience possible for each member of your family. From newborns to high schoolers, our services provide kids with an engaging environment where they can have fun, make new friends, and learn about Jesus through age-appropriate Bible teaching. Currently, childcare and youth services are available at our Wednesday and Sunday services.

How long is the service?

The service lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes. We begin each service by singing four songs, followed by announcements. From there, you'll hear from one of our pastors as they teach God's Word and how we can apply it to our lives. We then finish up the service with a song as we respond to what we've learned in the teaching and collect tithes and offerings. Prayer partners are also always available after the service.

What Should I Wear?

Calvary Chapel is for everyone, and we want everyone to feel welcome. Most people wear jeans and a nice button-up shirt or blouse, but there are also people who wear a nice dress or suit and those who wear a t-shirt and shorts. So come as you are and dress in whatever feels most comfortable.

Who is welcome to attend?

Everyone is welcome to attend Calvary. If you have specific questions about our beliefs regarding certain aspects of your lifestyle, we'd love to get together over a coffee and have a chat.
