Calvary’s Salvation Army Bell Ringing Day

Saturday, December 1

Calvary’s day of bell ringing for the Salvation Army is December 1! This is the eighth year that Calvary will ring bellringingbells at all the kettle locations for the entire day.  Two hours of your time multiplies into a year’s worth of support for individuals and families in the local area. We know what a marvelous organization the Salvation Army is and this is our way of showing how much we care and appreciate them.   The Salvation Army provides support throughout the year for individuals and families for rent and utility assistance, warm clothing, food, school supplies, Christmas presents for kids and outreach to area youth and veterans.  This is the Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year and our takeover day is a huge blessing to them.

This is a great opportunity for families and church groups.  We have 81 time slots to fill. CLICK HERE to sign up!

Thank you for your gift of time for this ministry.

Baptism Classes

We welcome all to the baptism font at Calvary! – both young and old, both members and non-members. At Calvary, baptisms happen in worship, both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

In preparation for baptism, we ask that you – the baptism family, and (if available) your sponsors – attend one of our Baptism orientation class, held monthly at Calvary. (Please note: you can attend the class anytime before the baptism event, even before your baby is born!)  We believe that this is important, not only to understand what it means to have your child baptized, but to connect with others who are in the same life-stage as you.

For more info, please read our Baptism Class Brochure. For any additional questions and to schedule your baptism, please contact Cathy in the church office (701-772-4897).

Here are the dates for our upcoming classes:

  • Thursday, November 15, 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, December 20 at 5:30
  • Thursday, January 17 at 5:30
  • Thursday, February 21 at 5:30 for baptism classes.
