What to Expect

On Sunday Morning:

On an average Sunday morning our services begin at 11 AM. Most people will be dressed casually, and the service will include singing (modern worship songs and a mixture of old and new hymns, led by a band), prayer, and expositional preaching. The song lyrics and the sermon outline will often be projected on a screen in front of the room, so you do not need to worry about not knowing the words. Often there will be videos during the service to help express a Biblical message.

The service is usually about an hour and a half long, with a great deal of that time being filled with the sermon. If you have a Bible, you may want to bring it, since the preacher will be referring to it frequently. We use a variety of translations, as long as they seek to accurately translate the original Greek and Hebrew. Some of our attenders enjoy taking notes on the sermon, which can help you remember the details or remember if you have questions about the sermon for the preacher after the service.

We have an active children's ministry, and children of early school age or younger (usually grade 1) will be dismissed to go to their classes halfway through the service. Older children normally stay and listen to the sermon. A Nursery is also available throughout the service. For more information about children's ministry, contact children@calvarybaptistnl.ca

People tend to hang around and talk to one another before and after the service, so please take the time to get to know other attenders while you're with us. We pray you will have a great time meeting with Jesus as you worship with us!

At Life Groups:

Each life group is slightly different, but all have some common traits. Life groups are informal gatherings, often in the homes of people from our church. where we have the opportunity to gather, pray for one another, get to know one another, and most importantly, get to know Jesus more deeply. Since they meet at people's homes, it is a lot like visiting any group of friends in order to hang out.

You can find more information about life groups here, or check out our events page to find out when one is meeting.
