We have an active family of believers here at Calvary Chapel Yuma, and we strive to have something for everyone. Knowing what ministries are offered in the church is a great way to understand what activities there are for you and your family, and also a good place to start looking if you would like to serve somewhere. You don't always need experience, just a love for Jesus, and a heart to serve! Every ministry can always use the extra help in some way or another!
God has blessed our church with an abundance of precious young ones - and our kid's ministry is ever growing! You will find nursery for the babies/toddlers, and Sunday school for pre-school age - 5th grade (after 5th grade, the child will move to our youth/middle school ministry). Our classes are grouped by age and each curriculum is chosen to cater to the learning needs of their age group.
We also reach out to the young ones in the community every year by hosting VBS!
Our youth ministry is one of our most active ministries in the church - and like the kid's ministry, it is ever growing! When they're not serving on the worship team (as pictured), you can catch them going on church retreats or participating in outreaches & fundraisers, or just generally making shenanigans.
The youth meet in the youth room at the 10am service for their teaching. There is no youth teaching for the 8am service at this time; however, the youth who come to the 8am service are welcome to sit in the sanctuary for the main message.
We meet every Monday except the first Monday of the month at 6:15pm to lift up our church and our church's needs in prayer. If you have a prayer need, you can write it down and drop it off at any one of our tithing/prayer boxes, or you can contact us directly through one of our many avenues - facebook, email, phone, etc.
Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to join prayer meeting.
Like coffee? So do we!
Come early on Sundays before the 10am service, just to visit and get to know some of your brothers and sisters in Christ a little bit better!
Side note: If you don't like coffee, some of us might just poke a little good natured fun at you ☺- but don't let that deter you. Grab a bottled water or ask the barista to make you a hot chocolate, and enjoy a real treat - good company!
This is a donations based ministry (prices on board are suggested donation)
The scripture tells us that if we are to be trusted with much, we must be faithful with little. (MATT 25:23) Don't know where to start? The cleaning ministry is always in need of helpers, and a wonderful way to start!
We know that every life that walks through our doors is precious, and we consider the responsibility of shepherding this group to be sacred. That is why we have begun a security ministry which is comprised of a dedicated and trustworthy group of servants in our church who are committed to allowing us to come to worship in freedom and safety.
Our outreach ministry is focused on showing Jesus' love to others (in our community and abroad). The ministry strives to provide for those in need both by donating items like clothing and medicines - and also by sharing with them the GOOD NEWS of God's plan for our lives.
