Live-Stream Sunday Worship


Rather than gathering in person on Sunday mornings, we are instead sharing live-streamed worship services through our YouTube channel. These services can be watched live at 9:30am or replayed anytime after for your convenience. They are complete with engaging music and meaningful sermons. We very much hope you can join us for worship in this new and exciting way! Below you will find a link to the latest service.


August 9th Worship



Bible Lessons

Prayer


Gracious God, thank you for loving us no matter what, and for being with us always, especially during these difficult times. Thank you for the living hope we have in Jesus. As we spend the next few weeks reflecting on the legacy of Simon Peter, we ask that you give us insights into how his life and faith can help us deal with the challenges we are facing today. Help us say "YES" to Jesus' call to follow as a disciple. Help us to say "YES," you can use our "boat" and our lives to fish for people, so that all can come to know your love and grace. Help us, even in our flaws and doubts and failures, to trust that you can use ordinary people like us, and all things, for your good purpose. Grow in us a rock-solid faith, and transform us more and more into the likeness of Christ as we live for you and for your glory. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

White Lake Garden

Calvary's White Lake Community Garden provides about 3 tons of produce each year to local food pantries serving our communities. The Community Garden is now ready for you to stop by and experience first hand God's provision. We know that this is going to be another great season of providing fresh produce for hungry people in our area. We will be harvesting on the days/times listed above. Please bring your own work gloves and small work tools. We will be wiping down produce carriers before and after each shift. Be sure to wear a mask when within 6 feet of another team member.

Pontiac Orchard

Every Saturday | 8:30am-7:30pm


Help weed, mulch, and spruce up Calvary's Pontiac Community Orchard! Each flower, vegetable, and fruit bed has been named using Books of the New Testament. Find your favorite Book using the Garden Map and adopt it for the day or even for the summer! Please note the time/day you would like to volunteer in the "Memo" when registering, then choose the bed you would like to adopt and a Pontiac Ministry Team Member will be assigned to meet you. We are looking for groups of 10 or less at a time that will practice appropriate social distancing guidelines. We will meet on Saturday's but if you would prefer to go another day that is fine as well! The sign up link is below, if you do not have a Realm account yet, please call or email us to register.

Parking Lot Worship


6805 Bluegrass Dr, Clarkston, MI

August 16 | 11am-12pm


This Sunday, we are offering a brief outdoor service in our parking lot utilizing a new FM radio transmitter. Safe self-serve Communion will be available for this worship time, or you are welcome to bring your own. We feel this is the safest way to move forward at this time, and a good way for us to be outside at our Clarkston Campus in a way that will cause less disruption for our neighbors. You can stay in your car or bring a lawn chair to sit just outside your car so you can hear your radio. Restrooms will be available, however, entry into the church will require wearing a face covering.
