573 S Jessie St, Pontiac, MI
Calvary's presence in Pontiac, has been our “church without walls” since 2010 and is a vital part of our poly-site ministry focus. The church campus is an orchard, a full sized playground, and gathering place for fun neighborhood events. It can be found at the intersection of Ferry Ave and South Jessie St in Pontiac.
This orchard and playground serve as a place where apples, pears, plums, peaches and strawberries are grown each year and where children can safely play. Members of Calvary's Clarkston campus also continue to grow deep relationships with residents of the neighborhood. Overall this urban campus continues in the vein of Calvary's overarching motto that we are better together as we go to make Christ known.
Calvary goes into this neighborhood in Pontiac to build relationships and tear down barriers. There is no better way to establish relationships than through, partnership, conversation, and learning with one another while caring for a neighborhood. We do this by staying plugged in to the neighborhoods needs while taking care of the park, playground, and orchard. We also host monthly fun events during the warmer months of the year that have crafts, food, fellowship and often include other organizations from the community as well!
“We are called not just to go to church, but to be the church wherever we go as an expression of God’s love. Building bridges and tearing down walls that too often divide and separate our communities is a fundamental expression of Jesus’ calling and our journey together as God’s people.”
- Senior Pastor Jonathan Heierman
