WHO IS CALVARY CHAPEL?
Calvary Chapel is a non-denominational church that welcomes people from all backgrounds. We have been in Vero Beach since 1996. Pastor Jim moved his family here in August of 1998 and began the verse be verse teaching of the Bible. We believe and teach that the Bible is God's Word and should be taken seriously. Calvary Chapel Vero Beach is a part of the Calvary Chapel family of churches; you can visit www.calvarychapel.com for more information.
We have one Saturday Night service and three Sunday morning services, a Thursday night bible study, and various small group ministries going on virtually every day of the week.
All of Pastor Jim's teachings are available on the resource portion of the Website
WHAT IS EXPOSITORY TEACHING AND DOES CALVARY CHAPEL TEACH THROUGH THE WHOLE BIBLE?
Because God gave man all 66 books in the Bible, we believe it's essential that we study every single book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, from Genesis to Revelation. We are not opposed to topical studies and use them at different times throughout the year. But we like the apostle Paul want to say one day soon, "I have not shunned to give you the whole counsel of God."
At Calvary Chapel you can expect to receive a solid Bible study at every service.
WHY DOESN'T CALVARY CHAPEL TAKE A FORMAL OFFERING?
We are not opposed to formal offerings and find that on certain occasions a formal offering may be taken. However, we firmly believe that where God guides, He is always faithful to provide. We also believe that those who call Calvary Chapel their spiritual home should give generously and wholeheartedly to support the ministry. So, we provide offering boxes at various locations in the sanctuary for you to give unto the Lord your tithes and offerings so that your giving becomes an act of worship between you and Him alone.
ARE THERE PROGRAMS FOR MY CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS?
It is our desire at Calvary Chapel to minister to every child and young person who attends the church. We have well trained and loving people who devote themselves weekly to ensuring that the children are loved, cared for and taught the truths of God in an age appropriate manner.
At Calvary Chapel we provide children's ministry during all the main services (except Sunday 8am). Our children's ministry provides care for nursery through 5th grade.
The Jr. and Sr. High also meet at Sunday's at 9:30 & 11:15 as well as Thursday evenings at 7pm
CAN I GET INVOLVED SERVING RIGHT AWAY?
Most ministries require that you attend Calvary Chapel for at least 6 months before making a service commitment. This time allows you to get comfortable with the ministry here while capturing the overall vision of what God is doing through Calvary Chapel. It also gives us time to get to know you better and help you in finding your fit in the church.
We do provide opportunities to for you to get involved right away, which include getting plugged into a small group or home fellowship or serving in areas like set-up and take down where you can get to know others.
DOES CALVARY CHAPEL OFFER COUNSELING?
Calvary does not offer long-term counseling, but we do have gifted spiritual leaders available to offer Biblical advice and spiritual encouragement. We also strongly suggest getting involved in a small group and becoming accountable to the Lord along with other believers. Contact the church office 772-778-8819 for more information.
WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS THAT AREN'T LISTED?
