  • The Evergreen Choir is comprised of Senior Adults.  We rehearse at 10:00 am on Wednesdays and go to a local senior care center once a month to sing and share God's word.


Women's Ministries: **The purpose of the Women’s Ministry is to grow in our relationships with God and each other, and to bring women of all ages together for fellowship and growth and to reach out to our friends and family with the message of God's love.**

Calvary's Women's Ministry is an active group that offers many activities throughout the year.  Monday Night Madness, bible studies, retreats, special events, community ministries, prayer partners, etc. 

"May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” -Romans 15:5-7



Vivian Craven Missions Group meets on the first Tuesday of each month.  Their focus is on study and support of the various missionaries and their work supported by the Southern Baptist Convention.  This group provides financial support to Camp Cedarcrest and the "Ugly Quilters" was an outgrowth of this group.


"Ugly Quilters", a group of ladies who create quilts for the homeless in Columbia.  Much of their work is done at home, but they meet at the church on the third Tuesday of each month to tie the quilts and prepare them for delivery to the Harbor House, a homeless shelter run by the Salvation Army.
