The purpose of Calvary Kids is to partner with parents to reach children with the Gospel of Christ and help lay spiritual foundations that last a lifetime. This is accomplished through several age-appropriate environments that occur each week, with fantastic teachers and leaders who love and care about kids. Feel free to click on the different age groups to get more information about how Calvary can partner with you.
At 9:00 and 10:30, a nursery is available for babies through 1 year-olds. The volunteers who serve in the nursery have gone through a thorough screening process to help ensure a safe and caring environment, because safety is our number one priority when it comes to your baby.

We want you to feel right at home. Life Groups provide a warm, caring fellowship aimed at assisting couples and singles in Christian growth. Using a Christ-centered and Bible-based approach to study is the basis for the multifaceted themes of Calvary's group experience. All ages and family identities can be found at Calvary. Put simply, we love people and desire to help them know Jesus and grow in their walk with Him. Life Groups meet Sunday mornings, so it's simple to coordinate your Life Group experience with your Worship service selection. Life Groups meet at many other times during the week, as well, in order to accommodate the busy lives of Calvary's families.
Calvary's Men’s Ministry currently meets on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm for a time of Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and renewal.
At the center of every Women's Ministry beats a heart of love: the love of Jesus, the love of wife for husband, the love of mother for child, a steadfast love for family and others. So, if you're looking for a place to grow spiritually, serve unselfishly, and develop lasting relationships with women who also long to grow ever closer to Christ, Calvary's Women's Ministries is just for you.

The Praise Teams of Calvary Baptist are committed to providing worshipful music to people of all ages. The 9 am Worship service is CLASSIC with music consisting of hymn arrangements and plenty of Southern Gospel flavor. The 10:30 service is CONTEMPORARY and features music in a more modern format with songs like those found on the top 100 list of today’s praise and worship charts. Calvary's goal is to create a worship service with as few distractions as possible. To ensure this goal is reached, each member practices diligently within group rehearsals as well as individually with their respective voice part or instrument.
Local missions include various mission projects in Republic and Southwest Missouri. They include: Disaster Clean Up, Freedom Dream Center, Grand Oak Mission, Republic Pregnancy Resource Center, and Nursing Home ministries at Christian Health Care, and Sonshine Manor.
Calvary has also taken trips outside of the Springfield Metro. Trips include youth trips throughout the country, annual Nicaragua home building trip, Romanian Mission Trips, family mission trips to help after natural disasters, and partnerships with Romania, Colorado, Ohio, and possible future partnerships with other national and international churches.
