WHAT TO EXPECT

Calvary is a diverse group of followers of Jesus Christ.  We come from different cultural and social backgrounds.  Some of us grew up in various denominational churches, while some of us are very new Christians.  We're not perfect, but we are trying to do our best to grow closer to Christ and be transformed into His image. Here's what we believe.

Our Sunday services take place at 9:00am & 10:30am.  All of our services include a Bible-based messaged.  Our 9:00am and 10:30am services at the Hazel Dell Campus include contemporary Christian music and worship songs, and our 9:00am service at the Jefferson Street Campus features hymns and traditional worship music.

Check out all of our service times and descriptions.

Where to go

We have two campuses located in Springfield, Illinois.

  • Hazel Dell Campus - 501 West Hazel Dell Road
  • Jefferson Street Campus - 1730 West Jefferson Street

What to wear

People attend Calvary wearing anything from three-piece suits to jeans.  Come dressed comfortably, and you will fit right in.

What to expect

We try our best to make you feel welcome and comfortable at Calvary - and if we don't succeed, please let us know so we can do better next time!  You will be met by greeters at the door who can give directions or answer any questions you may have.

Each of our services is a little different from the others, but expect to experience a time of corporate worship and praise and a pertinent, Bible-based sermon or message.  You shouldn't feel obligated to do anything you're uncomfortable with during our services.  Again, we want you to feel welcome and comfortable.

What about my children?

Your children will love attending Calvary with you.  All of our kids programs take place at our Hazel Dell Campus. Our two nurseries, one for infants and one for toddlers, are conveniently located just inside our Calvary Kids Jr. wing near the north entrance.  If your children need you for any reason, we'll simply contact you on your cell phone or, if you prefer, we'll give you a paging device to keep with you during the service.

Children from preschool to 5th grade attend Calvary Kids.  Pastor Tom Richardson and his team of kids workers minister God's Word to your children in a way that makes them want to come back each week for more!  Check-in for Calvary Kids near the Info Booth in the Commons Area.  Learn more about our Kid's Ministry.

We haven't forgotten teenagers, either.  Our Student Ministries department has a lot going on each week. On Sundays, our junior high ministry meets at 9am in the Community Room at our Hazel Dell Campus to connect and learn God's Word. Check out our Jr. High and High School ministries for more info and service times for these age groups.

Want to know more?

Feel free to stop by the Welcome Center at Hazel Dell or the Info Booth in the Foyer at Jefferson Street after any of our Sunday morning services to meet our pastors.  You can also chat with our volunteers at the Info Booth at either campus about our ministries or events coming up at Calvary.

Every month, we offer a Welcome Party lunch for those who are new to Calvary where you can meet our church staff.  Join us as we share a bit of our history and vision and tell you more about each of the ministries and opportunities available to you and your family. A meal and childcare are provided.

Our next Welcome Party is Sunday, August 27. Click here to register.
