Auditorium

Our auditorium is a multi-use space. We facilitate life groups, host community events, and hold our Sunday worship gatherings in it. We are beyond our capacity to minister to all the people that come to us, especially on Sundays. Our new auditorium will double our number of seats. We see this room as not just a home for our current congregation, but for countless people in our city who haven’t yet had an encounter with the grace of God. We are excited to build a space where we will see hands lifted in praise, hearts opened to the Word of God, and lives forever changed by an encounter with Jesus.

Lobby

Our church values connection and community. In everything we do, we try to host environments where people can build authentic and life-giving friendships. Our lobby is filled with laughter, conversation, shared meals, and powerful prayer throughout the week. Currently, we simply don’t have enough room for people to connect in this space- the volume is loud, the quarters are tight, and it can be tough to move around! We will be at least doubling the size of our current lobby, because we think that a single interaction can be just that important. One conversation can lead to life- long friendships, deep personal healing, and a place of belonging.

Youth Room

We value our students not just as the future, but as people who are doing the work of God here and now! Our student ministry is focused on empowering students to live their faith, and creating a place where people who don’t yet know God can connect and learn. Our current youth space is sufficient for our needs, but we have a vision to grow and expand our reach with the students in our community. With generous donations we could complete the lower level of our expanded lobby. This would provide an amazing space to make a significant investment in the faith journeys of our students. Our dream is that there would be enough resources to finish this part of the project so that our teens have room to continue to see their faith flourish.

Kids Ministry

1st Floor

We consider it one of our biggest privileges as a church family to introduce children to Jesus. We want our kids to know that our faith journey is an adventure, and we work hard to create a safe space for our children to make friends, have fun, and encounter God. Our kids participation continues to grow, to the point that in 1-2 years we will no longer have space for new children.

2nd Floor

To meet this need, our current auditorium will be converted into a two-storied facility just for our kids. Not only will it double our current classroom space, but there will be a large open area for kids to let their energy out and play. Because the safety of our kids is one of our highest priorities, there will be a single access point for check-ins, and the kid’s wing will no longer share a hallway with adult restrooms. We are beyond excited to cultivate an atmosphere of friendship and fun in this addition!

SUNDAYS @Second!

 

Sundays are about growing in faith in Jesus. Students begin in the auditorium for worship and are released after about 20 minutes to head to our lower level. Here we connect with new friends and have a non-pressured faith conversation. The experience all together lasts about 65 minutes and we hope you leave encouraged and challenged in your spiritual journey.

 

The first Sunday of each month, students will stay in the auditorium for the message.

WEDNESDAYS @Second!

 

Wednesdays are the most exciting night of the week! Every week a powerful and relevant message from scripture is preached, and students are given a chance to respond to the nights message.  Wednesdays alternate between small group nights (where students and volunteers connect by playing, learning and praying together) and worship nights (where our student led band, EMBERS, lead songs of worship and praise to Jesus).

Our messages are based out of the Bible, which we believe to be God-breathed and useful for our lives today. On Wednesday nights, we learn from engaging teaching, worship with our student team, take time to pray together or individually, and reflect on how we can become closer with our God. If you have never come, we encourage you to check it out!

My name is Steven Nichols and I am the Youth Director at Calvary Assembly! I am absolutely thrilled to be in this position and to be given the chance to work with your children and help lead them to all that God has planned for them.

I live in a neighborhood in Gates where my wife, Moriah, and I purchased our first home. When I am not actively involved in our youth  ministry, I throughly enjoy reading and training in martial arts. Moriah is an extremely gifted vocalist and piano player and can make any song sound like a billboard hit. I cannot. When we go out on dates together we both enjoy exploring the surrounding area looking for a restaurant we have not tried yet, searching for the best food our city has to offer. But for us, the best day is a simple and quiet one.

Although I am still working full time as an electrician for my father’s company, I want you to know I am available for you, for your son or daughter, and to help encourage our students towards the unique calling God has for their life! Don’t hesitate to email, call, or text me. I am looking forward to getting to know you!

Come as you are. You don’t have to dress up or pretend like you have it all together. We will meet for 65 minutes and in that time we will sing some songs about God’s love, have an engaging teaching that will encourage and challenge you, and participate in prayer that inspires you.

A lot of our lives is spent doing the SAME things. After all, we have reoccurring responsibilities. Faithfulness is the term the Bible uses for this.

There comes a time when we are called to do the NEXT thing. This
is not a call to stop doing the regular things. Rather, it is a reminder that we don’t have to be limited by them. In fact, the 
NEXT thing is possible because of faithfulness. You have faithfully prayed, served, and given generously. As a result our current facility is used three times on Sunday (and throughout the week) to connect people to - and help people grow in - God’s grace.

Every week we hear stories of people daring to hope again, finding freedom, and feeling loved and accepted. And if this was all God accomplished through us, we would be glad and grateful.

But with God there is always a NEXT. There are still individuals and families who have not been exposed to the grace of God. There are still people who have disconnected from faith and have not yet found their way back home. Since God is not done with them, He is not done with us.

Our mission is to provide a safe place for people to find authentic faith, risk real relationships and discover the future God has planned for them.

Our problem - we can’t provide a safe place if we are out of space.

Beginning on the first Sunday in October our church family will begin to take the NEXT step. We cannot do this alone. The faith and finances necessary for a project of this size will require each and every person to dare to pray bold prayers and boldly respond to God’s direction.

NEXT reminds us of God’s unfailing love and unwavering effort to reach each and every one.

NEXT reminds us that our dreams can be brighter than our memories.NEXT reminds us that the best is yet to come.
