WEEKLY PASTA DINNERS:
We understand getting to church during the week can be a challenge! To help encourage fellowship and make your hectic schedule easier, we offer delicious pasta dinners every Wednesday evening before our weekly mid-week service from 5:30pm - 7:15pm. Dinner costs $3 per plate.
"and they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine, and in fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42
Agape dinners are a special time the church gathers to break bread together. Whoever can, brings a dish to pass and we all enjoy the food that the Lord has provided. After dinner we spend some time worshipping the Lord in song and later we either share from the Word or hear a testimony. Agape dinners are open to the whole body. These are times of sweet fellowship as we get to know one another and allow the Lord to knit us together in love. Locations and times will be announced in the church bulletin well in advance.
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 28:19
The symbolic meaning of baptism is that of dying and rising again; through baptism we identify ourselves with the Lord's death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4, Colossians 2:12). Water baptism is simply an outward expression of the saving faith that a person already possesses though Jesus. Therefore, we hold two baptism services every year. Prior to each baptism we hold a class for all of those interested in being baptized. Generally, our baptism picnics are held at the Balneario de Carolina on Saturday's. These are great opportunities to meet and fellowship with families of the church. Everyone is invited to come and share in the special time together. Locations and times will be announced in the church bulletin well in advance.
We collect canned goods and non-perishable items the 1st Sunday of every month to help people and families in our congregation and community that are in financial need. If you'd like to donate and help those in need, please pick up a list of things we collect at the Information Center!
CHURCH RETREATS & CONFERENCES:
We hold several retreats and conferences throughout the year. We have Calvary Chapel pastors from across the country come and share as guest speakers. Conferences are generally one day long and are held here at the church. Each one is a wonderful time to spend together in worship and looking at a topic in God's Word. Also, we generally hold two retreats throughout the year. We spend three days and get a way together with the Lord. These include several teaching sessions, time in worship, and free time to spend fellowshipping, relaxing, and seeking the Lord individually. We also share in communion together. Iit is always a blessing and refreshing time for everyone. Locations and times will be announced in the church bulletin well in advance .
