When you think about the month of December, what’s the first word that comes to mind? Is it peace? Or is it something opposite? During the month of December, we’re going to talk about God’s peace, how to experience it and celebrate Christmas well – even in light of whatever our current circumstances may be.
The weekend services are simply a launching point to celebrating well, in order to experience peace this Advent season we’ll need to approach every day differently. It’s not about adding more to our schedule; it’s about making room to experience what God may have for us this season.

One of the great things about experiencing peace is it drives us to want to share that peace with others. This Christmas, bring peace to others who may not have it and give of your time at one of these opportunities:
Dec 11th | Christmas Party for Foster Families

Over the last several years at Christmas we've committed to raising money to drill clean water wells in Cambodia, where clean water still isn't available to everyone. We've also raised money for our Mercy Fund allowing us to respond quickly to disasters like the flooding in Houston or the fires in Sonoma County.
Because of the generosity of the people at Calvary Church we've drilled over 200 wells for over 100,000 people in Cambodia. Through the Mercy Fund we've supported local churches ministering to their communities through natural disasters like the flooding in Houston and the fires in Sonoma County. We've also been able to respond quickly to needs of individuals here in our community facing crises.
