Adult Ministries

Calvary Presbyterian offers a variety of both fellowship and mission opportunities for adults of all ages to participate in. These programs and mission projects allow adults in our congregation to meet fellow brothers and sisters in Christ in a warm, welcoming, and engaging environment. Here at Calvary we believe that a Church is only as strong as the bond between its members. We hope that you will join us at one of our adult fellowship groups or mission opportunities, you will find it a perfect opportunity to not only grow in Christ, but a chance to become a valued member of our Church family.

The Chancel Choir, directed by Jonathan Osbrink, leads worship at the Sunday service and at other special occasions and services. Our talented and versatile choir sings a wide range of musical styles, from traditional choral masterpieces to world music from non-Western cultures. Members and friends of Calvary are invited to join. Older youth are also invited to join. Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Choir Room downstairs. Find the choir room by driving through the parking lot, to the back side, lower level of the sanctuary and enter through the metal gate. The choir does not rehearse during the summer. 

The Chancel Bell Choir, directed by Jonathan Osbrink, plays a 5-octave set of Sclumerich hand bells. The bell choir enriches our worship service normally once a month. Their beautiful sound resonates through the sanctuary and fills listeners with joy. The Bell Choir welcomes any who are interested to join - training is available. Rehearsals are held Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. in the Choir Room.

We also have a Praise Band for 8:45 a.m. contemporary worship service and are always looking for new members. Rehearsal is at 8:00 a.m. every Sunday morning in Fellowship Hall. We meet to rehearse every first Monday at 6:30 p.m. to learn new songs. Alex Aaron leads.

Habitat for Humanity

Calvary has a long history of supporting Habitat for Humanity. Now we are involved in all aspects of building projects for Habitat Riverside. We just helped finish several homes in Rubidoux and now are ground-breaking on a site in Riverside. Jim Almgren coordinates our efforts with Habitat.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, tax-exempt, ecumenical Christian organization dedicated to working with people in need to improve the conditions in which they are forced to live. Its major purpose is to build homes for people who live in sub-standard housing and cannot afford to improve their living standards by conventional means.
