Calvary’s Men’s Ministries: Raising up Faithful Men
“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:1-2
- Challenging men to grow in their faith based on the scriptures.
- Encouraging men to develop relationship with other Christian brothers.
- Equipping men to be godly leaders as husbands and fathers.
- Motivating men to serve in the church, community, around the world.
- Providing men with opportunities for fellowship, fun, and interaction.
Our mission is to develop relationships between men that will lead to spiritual growth and offer opportunities for service and outreach.
Our Game Plan:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom.” Colossians 3:16
Calvary’s Men’s Ministry provides educational opportunities for its participants to study the Bible and discuss Christian principles, applying them to all aspects of their daily lives. Through Bible studies and discussion participants will have the opportunity to fellowship with other men, obtain support, encouragement, and challenge from other men, and learn how to lead a contented and prosperous God-honoring life.

Spending Time Together
“Let all things be done for building up.” 1 Corinthians 14:26
The Christian life was not meant to be solitary. Living in relationship with our families, co-workers, neighbors, church is both rewarding and challenging. Men’s Ministries helps to foster those relationships by encouraging marriages, offering family oriented events, and providing opportunity to build relationships that extend beyond Calvary’s walls.
Offered periodically on Saturday mornings, these gatherings always offer a hearty breakfast, informal interaction, encouragement in the Scriptures, and a good start to the day.
A family event, “Faith Night” at the Pigs always has an amazing response. This year’s game is scheduled for June 13. All ages welcome. Tickets go on sale at the church in April.
Tailgating Calvary style! Each Fall Men’s Ministries sponsors this event at Goodman Stadium in Bethlehem for the whole family. Watch for this year’s schedule.
A first for Calvary Church, the leadership team is planning a guy’s weekend at Haycock Brigade Camp in Kintnersville. As soon as details are available, you’ll find them posted here.
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4
“For who is the greater, one who reclines at table or one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.” Luke 22:27
Through selfless servanthood we are called by Christ to serve those around us, both inside and outside of the church, using our God given talents for His purpose. As men of God, we strive to serve our brothers with Christian love, so that in our efforts His name will be glorified. We will help men identify their gifts and implement them to honor Christ.
