We Have a Place for You to Connect.
We want you to connect with others and thrive in your walk with Christ. That’s why here at Calvary Baptist Church Lakeland we have small classroom-style groups that are geared toward building relationships with other Christians and growing as a disciple for Christ.
Our kids’ ministry is available from ages new born through 3 years of age (Nursery) and with age 4 to 6th grade in Junior Church. We start instilling Scriptural truths as early as our nursery, learning important Bible stories and how to apply their faith to everyday life. Now you can worship without worry knowing your children are in good hands.
The Garage is our teen ministry starts in 7th grade through high school. We have a weekly Sunday School class, fun monthly activities, visitation opportunities, summer camp, and winter trip! We desire to train up a generation of young people that know why they love God and can take a stand for Christ in the culture and times we live.
C.O.R.E = Christians Out Reaching Everyone
After high school and before getting married, this group finds time to meet for fun activities such as riverboat trips, meals after church, bowling, and more. Sunday School lessons teach applicable truths to stand fast on God’s Word in the midst of this changing culture that encourages compromise and political correctness.
We believe God has created marriage as the cornerstone of the family and that the family is the institution where discipleship begins. As a result, our Young Marrieds’ Class seeks to equip young couples to discover God’s blueprint for marriage as revealed in His Word. From campfires to barbeques, this group enjoys fun fellowship and times of helping each other.
In class we seek to cover topics such as parenting, marriage relationship roles, personal sanctification, edification and outreach. Our goal is to equip each class member with the spiritual foundation to grow deeper in their walk with the Lord, to learn how His Word applies to their daily lives and to be all that God has called them to be, as Christians, as spouses and as parents.
O.A.S.I.S. stands for Older Adults Sharing in Service and is our ministry to those 50 or older. We want to be about our Father’s business sharing in service toward others and fellowship with each other. Meeting primarily on Thursdays throughout the year, we have sweet times of fellowship, great meals and exciting day trips. Sessions include a time of devotions and prayer.
In this ever changing world, Men are being targeted and changed. We are dedicated to strengthening all men. Single men, fathers, husbands, and retirees. All coming together to sharpen each other through events and get-togethers all designed to grow stronger walks with Christ. Our men meet for activities throughout the year. Check the visitor’s guide upon your arrival to see upcoming events.
The need for women to have other like-minded Christian women to fellowship with is at an epic high. We have structured the Women’s ministry to be just that, an outlet for You to come together and help one another grow stronger in your walk with Christ.
Discipleship is very important to us at Calvary. We don’t only want to see people come to know the Lord, but also grow in the Lord! We offer a special discipleship Sunday School class, one-on-one meetings, and an atmosphere that encourages one to get involved and experience the power of God working in their life.
Inspirational, traditional, and Gospel music is used each week to foster an atmosphere of worship amongst the congregation. We believe that music is a powerful tool to worship God and that is seen through our adult choir, orchestra, special music groups, solos, and ensembles.
World-wide Missions is the heartbeat of our church. Each year, we hold a Missions Conference where we take on new missionaries for support and renew our Faith Promise giving for the coming year. Calvary has long supported many missionaries throughout the world. God has given us the Great Commission to reach not only within our own town, but to the uttermost parts of the earth.
We are proud to have a bus ministry at Calvary that has picked up children for many decades. Every Sunday morning, we start up the engines to run our routes around Lakeland. Our goal is to help children grow in the Lord and understand that victory can only be found through a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.
If you know someone who is more fluent in Spanish than English, Pastor Mendoza and the Iglesia Bautista Ebenezer Church meet every Sunday and Wednesday on our premises. Sunday School is at 12:30 PM and the main service is at 1:30 PM. On Wednesday they meet at 6:30 PM offering a preaching service, youth study, and the children join Calvary’s AWANA Program and Summer Kids’ Choir.
