Sports Ministry

Our church sports ministry here at Calvary seeks to create a place where boys and girls can worship their Father and Creator through soccer and basketball, regardless of their skill level or experience. Each league is designed to teach our children the wonderful truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ all while promoting an atmosphere of fun and encouraging competition. Both soccer and basketball have age-specific leagues from 4 years old through high school with coaches who are eager to give players both skills to play the game and a love of God.

If you are interested in serving, we have volunteers help with coaching, reffing, the concession stand, and more!
