Our Ministries

At Calvary, we strive to serve people of all ages. From infant through Seniors, there is something for you! There are also many opportunities to serve outside the walls of this building and to demonstrate the love of God for our community. We would love to help you get connected to one or many of these ministries. Contact us to learn more! 

Serving in our Community

Family Care Ministry

Our purpose is to minister to those in need during illness, bereavement, job loss or any time when burdens are just not bearable alone. By prayer, calling on God, and the support of the body of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, we want to stand alongside you. If you have a need or are interested in volunteering for this ministry, contact our church office.

Counseling

Family counseling is available from our pastor. He has had courses on family and personal counseling and would be glad to help you. Our counseling is all Bible based. We offer pre-marital and marriage counseling. We also work  one-on-one as time allows. Simply call and make an appointment with the church office.
 
Counseling is free for people in our church.

Hospital and Home Visits

We would like to encourage you if you are a church member or attendee. If you would like to request a hospital or home visit, please contact the church office.

Nursing Home Ministry

Life in a Nursing Home or Senior Living Facility can be very lonely and residents may feel alone or neglected. Many do not have regular visitors and there are very limited options for Church for them. We are so excited to be able to hold services at two area Nursing Homes each week!
 
Several of our members serve in this ministry by sharing a devotional or providing music for these services.  We strive to build relationships with the residents and to let them know they are loved and care about. Often, the volunteers come away feeling blessed by spending time with the residents. If you would like to know more, please click here.

Prison Ministry

Calvary Baptist Church provides an outreach ministry to the inmates at the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center. Each week, our SetFREE ministry team presents a lesson from a 13-week program. SetFREE is a Dependency Treatment and Discipleship Program from a completely Biblical perspective.

Over the course of thirteen weeks, lessons are presented that cover the fundamental root of all controlling and enslaving behaviors (sin), how to change behaviors, concepts of authority, obedience, and proper interaction with other people as well as lessons in life application. Two key aspects of being set free are emphasized: (1) set free from the penalty of sin and (2) set free from the power of sin. Both aspects are made possible only through Jesus Christ. When one receives Him by faith as their Savior, their sins are paid for and forgiven.  And as one begins their new walk with Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit in obedience, they become set free from sin’s dominating power, not sinless but sinning less.

Those that attend SetFREE and complete all homework assignments, receive a certificate of completion and their own leather Bible. It is exciting to open up God’s Word to these men and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Most times we do not know what happens in the lives of those that pass through this ministry, but we do know that God’s word does not return void (Isa 55:11).
