Upcoming Events



New Member Orientation

Interested in becoming a member of Calvary? Are you wondering what church membership means? .

Join us for New Member Orientation on January 14 in our Fellowship Hall (Contemporary Worship space) located on the south end of the building. We will have a light lunch and learn about all things Calvary beginning at 11:45  a.m. Meet other new members, learn more about Calvary’s ministry and meet a few staff, with an optional tour of the church to follow. Children are welcome, and child care in the nursery will be provided.

New members will be received at Calvary on Sunday, January 21, by public acknowledgement in all three worship services, as well as the service held on Wednesday, January 10. 

Any questions about Calvary or church membership? Feel free to contact the church office by emailing place4u@calvarygf.org or by calling 701-772-4897.

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:

  • Tuesday, January 9, 5:30 p.m. led by Pastor Sonja
