Here are some frequently asked questions: 

What should I wear?

We want you to feel comfortable. You’re invited to come as you are, whether it’s a suit or shorts you feel most comfortable wearing. Our members and attendees tend to dress pretty casual.

Do I have to put money in the offering plate?  

At Calvary we feel that offering is an important act of worship between you and the Lord.  We don’t pass around an offering plate. Instead, the offering box is located on the Welcome Table or you can donate online above on our "GIVE" page. You can contribute whenever and however much you deem appropriate.  Our Pastor does not know who gives and who doesn’t.  

Where do my children go during service? We have a wonderful Children’s Ministry! There is class for your children, ages walking through 8th grade, while you attend service. If you would like your children to join a class, visit the Welcome Table for directions to the classrooms! Parents, Grandparents, or Legal Guardians can check their children into the classroom. Parents will also receive a ticket which you will need in order to pick up your child. For the safety and security of your child, it is important that you keep track of your receipt ticket and sign your children in and out of class. This helps us know that you are the person authorized to pick up your child.

Where should I park?  

You can park anywhere on S Cheyenne Street, S Grove Place, and there is extra parking at Manitou Park.

What is a church service like at Gathering Stones?  

Our goal at Calvary is loving Jesus, loving His Word, and loving people as away of life. Our services are focused on expository teaching through the Bible. We begin services with announcements, prayer, then we participate in worship songs, which are followed by a sermon.  We end the service with more worship songs and prayer.  Pastor Dwayne teaches from the English Standard Version.  Free Bibles are available on the Welcome Table.
