Bible Study and Spiritual Reading during the Pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily suspended our Bible study on the book of Acts. Our last class was March 17, 2020; we hope to resume after the stay at home order is lifted later this year and it is safe to gather in person, albeit with appropriate precautions. In the meantime, all are encouraged to engage in individual Bible study and/or other spiritual reading at home.

If any Calvary members or affiliates are interested in any of the following books from the pastor’s office library, they are available on loan upon request. Contact Pastor Cox at gary.cox@alum.ssw.edu; delivery will be arranged:
