About Calvert Community Church
Beginning with just over a dozen adults and young people on the team, Phil and Nancy VanWart came to Calvert County looking to establish a church that would help reach the many county residents not yet involved in local churches.
Early Easter morning, April 4, 1999, the team would be found at Huntingtown Elementary School busily setting up chairs, staging, lighting, sound, Children's Church and Nursery for the Grand Opening of Calvert Community Church.
The team had worked months to make friends with the community, inviting as many people as possible through various means. Not the least of the invites came in the form of a massive direct mail featuring the infamous "Caveman's" invitation to "Come As You Are".
That first Sunday service was attended by some 70 guests, most of whom admitted that it was the caveman that led to their attendance. The tone was set. From that Sunday on, Calvert Community Church has continued to ask people to "Come As You Are" to find a loving and accepting God and a church that reflects His values and mission.
Calvert Community Church now meets on its beautiful many acreage campus. We like to call our temporary meeting place cozy, but on any given Saturday you may find our "Weekend Warriors" working to complete our latest project- a 2800 square foot worship center.
Those who are new to Calvert County and/or are looking for a new church home, or those thinking about church for the first time ought to consider Calvert Community Church.
Our invitation still stands. Please, come as you are, and see what God is doing at Calvert Community Church.
