After years of prayer, our congregation and leadership developed a strategic plan to accommodate future growth at Calvary Church. We’re excited to follow God’s lead in this three-year Transform Campaign! Our target was to raise $7.5 million to accomplish four growth goals: refreshing and building new facilities; planting a new church or launching a third campus; equipping new leaders; and paying down debt.
We’ve currently been blessed with commitments around $3 million. It’s amazing to see people giving so generously, and we thank you! As this is short of our original goal, we’ve spent time praying and talking about how to proceed. We’ve determined that the goals were accurate, and the needs are real, and we are prayerfully approaching these next three years as Phase One. We will continue to seek your input as we consider another campaign in order to secure the funds needed to complete all the proposed projects within the next few years.
So what ARE we doing for the campaign? We’re revising our building plans and amending other growth goals. Senior leadership and Elders are meeting with architects and discussing how to update areas where need is greatest, with both campuses being reviewed in this process. We have heard questions from the congregation, and are prayerfully considering how best to serve the people of Calvary Church in all that we do. We appreciate your prayers regarding the Transform Campaign.

- We’re so thankful for the 327 Transform Campaign Commitment Cards received!
- Over 600 people are represented in those cards. All have committed to pray and financially support the campaign.
- $3,009,052 total committed to date.
- Over $800,650 has been received in stock donations and financial gifts.
- We praise God for the generosity of the Calvary Church congregation!
- As the current amount committed is short of our $7.5 million goal, leadership continues to be in prayer to determine which goals will receive attention first, but have approved moving forward with a few projects (listed below).
- Update Signage—Our current monument signs (large exterior signs identifying Calvary Church) are outdated and not in working condition. In order to be more welcoming as well as informative, we will be doing what we can to update those. Our Communications Director, Treasurer, and Facilities Director are collaborating on this project. A vendor has been selected, and we hope to have new graphics before the new year rolls around!
- Atrium Update—The Atrium at Roseville Campus is one of the most used rooms on the campus. In order to meet the needs of the groups needing audio and visual resources to communicate in that space, a major technology upgrade to the sound system is underway.
- Roseville Campus HVAC—Due to age and inefficiency of our current heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, two new roof-top HVAC units will be installed to service the Worship Center.
- Roseville Campus Parking Lot—The condition of the parking lot surface had become a safety risk so the lot was resurfaced in October of 2017.
- Razing Parker House—We demolished the house at 1041 Parker (on the east side of Roseville Campus parking lot).
- Revising Architectural Plans—We continue to work with architectural firm BWBR on maximizing redesign of space given our budget. We plan to begin implementing that redesign in 2018.
