Calvary is committed to Christian Education. A primary emphasis of our mission involves learning and applying God’s Word to our lives. This most certainly involves education, however, education is not only an intellectual endeavor. True Christian education, or true learning, also involves practice, experience, and community.
We are striving to define a “pathway” for discipleship. In some sense, this pathway is unique and different for each person. It varies because of our age, experience, and present vocation. But there are consistencies that apply to all people. As we strive to learn and become disciples of Jesus Christ, we must create an open and honest environment where an individual is able to be vulnerable. This vulnerability allows us to “un-learn” certain misconceptions or behaviors that are un-biblical or unpleasing to God. At the same time we must create a learning environment that is not legalistic, but does allows for true accountability within the community. Regardless of age, experience, history or background, we strive to provide Christian education that include the above elements, so that all would see how God is developing them as His disciples.
Certainly our education ministry provides classroom experiences for children and adults. There are opportunities for learning in large group and small group settings. There are Bible studies within homes, and within the church building. There are also opportunities for “active learning” while individuals serve our community and other communities. You are invited to check out the church calendar, and consider the varied opportunities. We also invite you to contact Grace Knuth, our Discipleship Coordinator, to assist you in finding the education opportunity that best fits you.
