Calvary Christian Center is a group of regular people trying to know and grow in a very extraordinary God. We exist to offer an environment that will allow you to fully understand what it is to have a relationship with God while you learn to live expressing his love, as he has loved you.

Our Sunday morning services include inspirational and modern worship music, creative use of visual arts, and challenging yet relevant messages for today’s world. Our service starts at 10am, we would invite you come a couple minutes early to grab a beverage at our coffee bar and join us! Dress at Calvary is beyond casual; you need only come as you are! When you arrive you will be greeted with smiles and members ready to answer any question you have. 
 
 OUR VISION
 
 
DISCOVER
We exist to help people discover God through worship. The way we propose this is for everyone to attend and participate in a weekly worship service. Currently we offer weekly worship services on Sunday mornings at 10 A.M. We offer a modern musical worship experience to help connect us to God.
 
 
NURTURE
We encourage nurturing by building relationships through teaching & fellowship. Home and Church groups will focus on growing a believer’s faith while growing their relationships in a Biblical and holistic way. Currently we offer groups on Sunday mornings at 10 A.M. and Wednesday nights at 6:30 P.M.
 
SERVE
We strive to practice action through serving in effective ministry. Serving God through the believers gifts, talents, and passions in the church, to the community, and around the world is what our ultimate goal is. Many options exist in the scope of ministry of the Church.

Church History

Calvary Christian Center has a rich history in the Pottstown area. It started with services in a tent back in the 1930’s then moved into the old Mercury Building, which was on Beech Street. In 1952 Reverend Sparks bought the old School house located on Laurelwood Road in Pottstown Landing at a pubic auction, which is the church’s present location and pictured above. Services were held in the one room schoolhouse but additional space was needed. In the 1960’s the building was almost doubled in size. An office was added to the end of the building and the low ceilinged basement was dug out by hand, and the dirt was wheel barreled out making way for a concrete floor and space for five Sunday School rooms. In 1970 the present auditorium was built along with another Sunday school room under the church platform. The church celebrated 75 years of serving God and the community in 2014. During that time it has had three different names; Calvary Pentecostal Church, Calvary Assembly of God and Calvary Christian Center and has had 11 pastors. Pastor Robin McKinley will be celebrating his 23rd year as the lead pastor in December of 2015. 
 
Calvary Christian Center, an Assemblies of God Church by affiliation, proudly offers a contemporary type worship experience every Sunday with relevant messages from the Bible for every day living. We have a full children’s program Sunday Mornings and Wednesday nights. We are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ in making disciples as we teach and baptize them in His precious name. 
Calvary Christian Center has taken great pride in serving the community needs with multiple events and outreaches.
 
 
Every year at Christmas time Calvary gives Christmas Trees away for FREE to anyone who wants or needs one.  This tradition has marked a place in the hearts of the people who know the church and who call asking if we are the “Christmas tree church”.  We have partnered with Philadelphia Masters Commission for this event and have reached hundreds, if not thousands, for Christ. This year alone we donated more than one hundred trees and over four hundred meals to our community. We can’t wait for what next year will hold for this event!
 
 
 
 
Another great event Calvary hosts is the Community Easter Egg Hunt.  Not only do we provide a safe place for children to collect candy and prize filled eggs, we start off every event with the Word first. Pastor Brenda, our children’s Pastor, is great at what she does, engaging the kid’s and making sure the Gospel is shown in a way that they can understand.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Something that everyone loves is our annual Kid’s Crusade! Pastor Robin and Cindy have had heart for children for a long time. Right after Bible college Pastor Robin and Cindy set out on an over eight year adventure as Children’s evangelists.  The skills they have make this annual community event a delight and amazing experience for children to be impacted by Gods love and the Gospel of His son, Jesus.
