Calvary Christian Reformed Church was officially organized as a Church only about four years ago. Its actual history dotes back much further than that. Undoubtedly many will long recall its dynamic missionary witness to the community when it was situated on River Ave. and known first as the orthside Gospel Hall and later as Calvary Chapel.
Today Calvary is a fully organized Church and has moved fcrther north to its new location on
Beeline Road just off from Lakewood Blvd. Calvary definitely intends to continue to be a living
missionary witness to this new community in which God has placed her, even as the Chapel was such
a witness to the community near Rive* Ave. The congregation of Calvary extends a cordial invitation
to all to come and worship with them
