We take care of our bodies so they grow and mature. We have to do the same with our souls!

Hebrews 10:24

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.”

Adult Ministry

Life Groups

Our Life Groups are our weekly, year-round groups that meet every Sunday, or another day of the week. We believe spiritual growth happens best in small groups.

Adult Growth Classes

Growth Classes are short-term, thematic classes centered around a Book of the Bible, Biblical character, life issue, or topic that helps the participant take one more step in their spiritual growth. Classes are generally offered in the Fall and Spring semesters.

Marriage Ministries

Christ sees the church as His bride, and marriage should reflect that relationship between a husband and wife. Marriage is the backbone of the family, and we strive to bring support to your marriage through classes, groups, and special events throughout the year. Investing in your marriage is so important and we are here with you on the journey.

This event is designed to empower marriages to move with the strength and force directed by God and the Holy Spirit. These events will be held throughout the year addressing relevant topics and providing couples the opportunity to walk away with the momentum their marriage needs. Check back for an announcement on the next event!

Family Ministries

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

On the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month we invite our mothers of children ages birth to kindergarten to come together for encouragement, teaching, and connection.

Children’s Ministry

Children are a priority

We strive to provide quality, positive experiences for children that are not only fun, but pointed towards God.

We offer Sunday School classes for all children at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. On Wednesdays, KidzJAM is offered from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm for children ages 3 to 6th grade.

Preschool Ministry

Welcome to our Preschool Ministry! We hope to be a blessing to you by providing the best age-appropriate, Bible-based care possible. We know that children, from the earliest age, can learn basic truths about God’s love. Simple concepts like “God made me’, ‘God loves me,’ and ‘Jesus wants to be my friend forever,’ provide a strong foundation for every child.

Our volunteers and ministry leaders love preschoolers and strive to provide safe, fun, and Bible-based learning whenever they are in our care.

Our policies are in place to ensure that your children are safe, loved, and able to learn about the love of Jesus while they are here. We are happy to partner with you to help you continue teaching at home. Thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your child’s life.

If we can be assistance to you at any time, please don’t hesitate to call us at 318-445-5640. 

Classes are offered at 9:00 and 10:30. We gladly accept preschoolers 15 minutes before each session.

College & Young Adult Ministry

A community of college students and young adults who want to see this city’s young adults come together to glorify God with their lives. We believe this happens when we connect People to God and People to People. We meet on Sundays at 9:00 am and 10:30 am, and dive into community groups throughout the week.

Middle School Ministry

Our desire is for students to Live Christ First in every area of life. We believe Middle School students do this best when they Connect with Christ, Grow in Community, and Go Make Disciples.

High School Ministry

We desire students to Live Christ First in every area of life. We believe High School students do this best when they Connect with Christ, Grow in Community, and Go Make Disciples.

We have opportunities on Sundays at 9:00 am and 10:30 am for Life Group and Worship, Wednesday nights is The Forge at 6:00 pm, as well as other monthly events and connections. All are designed to help Connect, Grow, and Go in your walk with Christ.

Music Ministry

Our Music Ministry enhances our Worship Services each Sunday with beautiful songs of praise, rejoicing, and thanksgiving to our loving Heavenly Father. It also oversees our Conservatory of Music where kids and adults can learn or hone a musical skill with talented teachers from around Cenla.

There are also ways you can serve in our choir, orchestra, praise team, and special groups if you are interested.

Women’s Ministries

The Women’s Ministry of Calvary Baptist Church exists for reaching, teaching, and nurturing the women of our Church and community so that each woman will come to faith, Christian maturity, and service by walking in step with God, His Word, and one another. We do this primarily through our WOW groups, Women’s Small Groups, and MOPS.

Men’s Ministries

At Calvary, we help men realize that authentic manhood is found when men reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously, and invest eternally. We do this primarily through the Quest, Band of Brothers, and The Men’s Retreat.

Senior Adult Ministry

Our Senior Adult Ministry is a vibrant and caring place to be involved. With monthly lunch meetings, weekly activities, and special events, you can always find something that interests you! Combine that with great people and you have a recipe for fun spiritual growth and community. God has something in store for you and we would love to help you find a place to belong!

Special Needs

Our special needs ministry serves persons of all ages with a developmental or physical disability and their family members and other caregivers.

Our volunteers have a loving heart for persons with special needs and are trained by the Director of our Special Needs Ministry. We invite you to join us at Calvary and let our family share the love of Jesus with your family.

Support Groups

The trained facilitators of our groups are friends who have a passion to comfort others in trouble with the same comfort they themselves have received from God and others. Those who lead our groups have experienced the same life issue or need of the group they lead. Let Calvary’s C.A.R.E. Network Support Group Ministry be “A Safe Place of Hope and Healing” for you.
