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.

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.

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.
