Calvary Church Monument began meeting for monthly worship gatherings in 2017 as a church plant of The Calvary Family of Churches. It is clear the Lord has led our church every step of the way to this point, but truth be told, starting a new church in Monument was never part of the plan!
This church began with a burden to minister to students, a group of 8th grade boys to be exact. This “Band of Brothers” began meeting weekly in January, 2017. The goal of the group was to dive in deep to the Gospel and develop real community with one another. The Lord blessed this ministry. Soon it spread to families represented in the group and neighbors. A community group was formed that summer, and a men’s gathering started at the same time.
Our calling to love the people of Monument in the Gospel grew. And, as the pastors at Calvary Church Englewood saw what the Lord was doing, it became clear that we were being called to plant a new church in our community. We began meeting monthly for worship in October, 2017, and had the joy of our first baptism.
In 2018, the previous Band of Brothers continued-on while a new group of middle schoolers formed. Over the summer of 2018, we had the privilege of launching our first ministry to young women, “Rooted,” and our women’s gatherings.
Then, during the summer of 2018, the Lord impressed upon our church that it was time to launch weekly worship gatherings. We began meeting weekly in August. Now we joyfully gather each Saturday night to worship together, dive into God’s Word, and love each other and our community!
If you don’t currently have a church home, we would love to have you join us in the story of what God is doing!
