Who are we?
Calvary SLO [www.calvaryslo.com] is a local church on the scenic central coast of California with many families who are motivated to raise their kids in a home where the love of Jesus is real and life-changing. We as a ministry have a commitment to serve them well so that they are ready to pass on their living faith to their children. Thus, we offer this site and make it available 24 hours a day to those parents who are looking for simple ways to invest in the spiritual development of the children. We prioritize the following four areas in our ministry for families: Ministries, Resources, Family Events and Family Guides. Thank you for exploring our site and feel free to take advantage of all that is here! If you are in the San Luis Obispo area and you have yet to settle in one of the many wonderful churches as a home, we would humbly invite you to come visit us at Calvary SLO Church!
What do we provide?
It’s our goal to provide ministries that are age-appropriate and intentional in partnering with parents to encourage their children's spiritual growth, as well as focus on challenging and equipping the next generation in loving Jesus, loving their neighbors, and living on mission. Therefore, we spend considerable time and energy in developing leaders that are loving and effective in serving children from infants through high school seniors. Children's Ministry, 4th-6th 'Spring' Ministry, Jr. High and High School Ministry all are offered during our Sunday services, with the Spring (bi-monthly) and Students (weekly) meeting during weeknights as well. We are Gospel-focused and believe that partnering with and supporting parents is the most effective way to serve these children and students!
We provide resources that make it easy and fun to be spiritually intentional with your children regardless of their age. We have been blessed with incredible resources from our friends at Lake Point Church in Texas and Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in California. We have been given permission to make these resources our own, and we are progressively making more available to you. One in particular is Faith Path, a comprehensive set of resources that enables parents to focus on spiritual development during the different stages of their child's growth. These are always available on this site and available for mothers, fathers, grandparents, and your children to peruse, enjoy and utilize!
Family Events bring families together and are available throughout the year, often intentional on featuring various relationships within the family (e.g., father/daughter dinner dance). Be sure to check the Event Calendar on this site for the latest information and to be involved. Annual events include Annual Family Retreat, Father/Daughter Dinner, Father/Son Campout, Summer Beach Kickoff, Parenting Trainings, Youth Camps, Outreach trips for students, etc.
Family Guides contain information on a spiritual area such as praying together or making the most of a holiday as a family. We provide these to parents and children throughout the year and they can be downloaded from this site as well. Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Easter, etc. are special times when families can read and have fun making memories together while they utilize these handouts. If you can follow a recipe card in the kitchen, you can lead your children in fun and engaging ways during these occasions utilizing our downloads!
