From our Pastor
by Dr. Ronnie Cheatwood

 Welcome to Mt Calvary Baptist Church!

 Thank you for taking time to learn about our church. We are a life-celebrating church where people from all walks of life are embraced. It doesn’t matter where you are from, we know that God has a purpose for your life and wants to have relationship with you.

Church is a word that means a lot of things to people. For some, it's a word of baggage. All these folks know of the Church is the irrelevance, prudishness, and hypocrisy of the Church of their youth. For others, it's a word of mystery. All these people think about the Church is that it's just another generic, anonymous, do-gooder institution, like the Boy Scouts or Rotary Club...but with guilt.

Then for some, Church is a word of hope. For these people Church is the place where their family was cared for. Church is the place where their kids were welcomed and loved. Most importantly, Church is the place where they began to understand just how real, and awesome God is, and how much He loves them. I'm one of those people. The Church changed my life, and I haven't looked back since.  So let me give you a quick overview of what you can expect to experience when you join us on a Sunday.

Childcare-

We believe that our Church will become a place that your whole family is excited to show up at come Sundays. We offer loving, and safe environments for your kids from birth through 4th grade to experience the love of Jesus. Our Children's volunteers in “Noah’s Park” make the Bible come alive through storytelling, crafts, games, and more! All of our volunteers have passed a background check, and there are check-in and check-out procedures in place to ensure the safety of your kids.

Worship-

At 11:00 our worship experience will kick off as we sing songs together celebrating our God and all He's done in our lives. Our songs are a mix of some classic hymns of our faith and more contemporary expressions of worship. After we've sung four to six songs together I'll teach a lesson from the Bible that is applicable to living in today’s world. We'll wrap things up around noon.

So that's it. If you've got any other questions about what visiting our Church will be like for your family I invite you to give us a call or shoot us an email, I'd love to begin getting to know you. I'll look forward to seeing you this Sunday and welcoming you to the place that I really believe can change your life forever, after all, it did mine.

Hope to see you Sunday,

Pastor Ronnie
