Lent

40 days of reflection leading us to the celebration of resurrection

Lent Message Series

Beginning March 1, with a host of great guest speakers all throughout Lent, we will learn what exactly does it mean to be a Methodist. We hope you will join us in Worship for this series and don't miss Sunday School class as you will have the opportunity to go deeper in discussion with the 'Five Marks of a Methodist' video streaming series. Learn more below.

  3. Include this person in your prayers throughout Lent
  4. Around Easter, reveal yourself by card, email, phone - or be creative!

‘Five Marks of a Methodist’

The Book

Follow along, dig deeper and start some conversation and discussion with the Five Marks of a Methodist: The Fruit of a Living Faith by Steve Harper.

As we journey together through the Lent pilgrimage, we encourage everyone at Calvary to purchase a book for themselves or their family and consider the five identifiers that John Wesley set forth in The Character of a Methodist.


Book Orders for $8 are available through March 1 on Sunday mornings at the Communication Center.


We encourage you to feel free to purchase the book online or even get the eReader/Kindle version as well.

The Video Series

Beginning March 1, all Sunday School classes are encouraged to begin the Five Marks of a Methodist video discussion series. With accompanying discussion questions and leader guides, we hope all small groups will learn and discuss more what is means to be a United Methodist with this accompanying video series by author of Five Marks of a Methodist: The Fruit of a Living Faith, Steve Harper.
