Why Your Opinions Are Valued

Often congregation members are reluctant to voice their thoughts and opinions about the Church, but that is exactly what the Calvary Transition Team is asking Calvary members and attendees to do.  We are ready to listen as you describe your current experiences at Calvary and give us your ideas for the future, especially as we begin to seek a new Senior Pastor.

The Calvary Transition Team is providing two opportunities for you to voice your opinions and desires as we map out the future of Calvary. The Congregational Assessment Tool (The CAT) and Calvary Listening Sessions, will allow us to collect and understand the range of views that exist at Calvary Baptist Church and the possibilities, willingness, capacity, and energy for moving our ministry into the future.  We value your opinion and look forward to your participation in both events.

Many of you have already taken the CAT survey.  The next important step is to sign up for a Calvary Listening Session.  In these one-hour sessions, you’ll have an opportunity for direct conversations with other Calvary friends.  These focus-group style sessions will occur May 1 through May 7.  All sessions will be in the Fireside Room. Childcare will be provided for some sessions as indicated. Dr. Bo Prosser, a nationally known Cooperative Baptist Fellowship facilitator from North Carolina will conduct the 30 Listening Sessions.  If you haven’t already signed up, go to the scheduling site at the link below (Sign-up.com) and enter your email, choose a specific time slot, insert your name, click done or save, then show up at your designated time. Very easy! You’ll even receive reminder notices of your time. If you don’t have an email address, you can sign up at the Transition table after church on Sunday or call the church office at 254-3491. Below is the link to the Sign-up and the Listening Session times:

Transition Team Update (C.A.T.) 3/20/19

Transition Team Announcement - 3/20/19
(Note: this announcement was distributed in Sunday School folders on 3/24/19)

The Congregational Assessment Tool - The CAT

What is it?
The Congregational Assessment Tool is an online survey used to anonymously collect information from a congregation. The CAT has been used in over 3,000 churches and will provide key indicators of our congregational health along with areas of challenge and potential growth.  It will allow us to collect and understand the range of views that exist at Calvary Baptist Church and the possibilities, willingness, capacity, and energy for moving our ministry into the future.

Why is Calvary doing the CAT?
The information gathered will provide a clear picture of who we are as a church and what directions are most important for our future. It provides a way for the Transition Team and the Pulpit Committee to receive information directly and efficiently from the Calvary congregation. This honest assessment of Calvary will be vitally important in the selection of our next Senior Pastor. 

Who is involved?
All Calvary members and attendees who are able to take the CAT in a single 30-minute sitting at a computer.

When is it happening?
The CAT assessment window will open beginning April 1, 2019 and will remain open until April 30, 2019.

How do we participate?
If your email address is on file with Calvary and your receive Calvary Connections, you are all set. If not, provide an email address to us by sending an email to: info@calvarybaptistchurch.com.  Paper copies will be available to those who do not have email access, just call the Church office. If needed, a computer station will be made available to those members who want to come to the church to fill out their CAT survey. Hours and Room will be announced later.

National Day of Prayer at Calvary 5/1/19

At Calvary Baptist Church we are planning an intergenerational prayer program on Wednesday, May 1st at 6:30pm in Fellowship Hall for the National Day of Prayer. We have scheduled our Day of Prayer a day in advance of the National Day of Prayer (on Thursday, May 2nd), so that more of our church family may participate in this event.


Our theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019 is Love One Another. The theme comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.”

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.

Our hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. We can come together in clear agreement that this is our greatest need. We can become a visible union, standing together in prayer. We can pray more than ever before, and practice extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God in America that will catapult the message of the gospel nationally and internationally.

"There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God's people." Dr. Ronnie Floyd
