Join us for worship this Sunday at 10:45am. 


We are a Bible believing, gospel proclaiming and a worldwide disciple making assembly of Christians. Our goal always has been and always will be to bring glory to God in everything we do. 


We are located at 2850 East Dorothy Lane in Kettering, Ohio. We meet together every Sunday morning at 10:45, and we would love to have you join us for worship. 

Our Beliefs

The following is a list of some of our core beliefs. It is by no means an exhaustive list of all we believe, but rather some fundamental Biblical principles that set the foundation for everything else.

Get Connected

If you're new to Calvary, we'd love to have a chance to know you. Below is some basic information about our weekly gatherings, as well as some ways to get in contact with us. 

What to Expect

Our main service takes place every Sunday morning at 10:45 and wraps up around noon. The service consists primarily of worship music and Bible preaching. Prior to our main service, at 9:30am, we have a Bible Study (Sunday School) for adults. During this time we dig deeper into God's Word and learn how to apply it to our lives. 


Since we are a pretty small group we don't currently have any official programs for kids and teens. However, child care is always available for young children. People wear a wide variety of dress, so you can wear whatever you are comfortable with. During or main service we collect an offering. However, if you're a guest, you certainly are not expected to give.
