Pastoral

Hospital Visits

Calvary’s mission is to be a Christ-like community that experiences and shares God’s love. Calvary, therefore, wants to support those who are ill, especially when a member is in the hospital. The pastoral staff, Church School classes, and ministry teams make every effort to visit members who are hospitalized.

Please call the church office when you become aware of a hospitalization so that a visit can be arranged. Call any member of the pastoral staff or the office manager at 303.757.8421. In a case of emergency, please call Calvary’s emergency line at 303.757.8421, then Ext. 227, then 7.

You may also request a lap robe (small blanket) or prayer shawl for your hospitalized member through one of the pastors or a Stephens Minister.

Counseling - Praying - Appointments

Life really is unpredictable. Everyone is vulnerable to unexpected illness, personal and family problems, accidents, losses, and changes. At times like these, individuals or families may need someone to talk with in order to gain some spiritual and emotional insight that will help them through crisis.

All the pastoral staff is available to talk with individuals or families during such times. However, no one on the Calvary staff can offer ongoing therapy; persons requiring more than one or two informal counseling sessions will be referred to licensed professional counselors or Calvary’s counseling center. Calvary has trained Stephen Ministers, laypeople who are available to walk alongside those with special needs due to grief, illness, unemployment and family problems.

Homebound - VIP's (Very Important Persons)

Some of Calvary’s members have developed physical limitation that will not permit them to continue regular involvement in church or community activities. sometimes find their physical limitations will not permit them to continue regular involvement in church or community activities. Calvary reaches out to the homebound in a variety of ways.

Worship services may be watched on a YouTube channel by searching the internet for YouTube and then searching the YouTube site for "Calvary Baptist Church of Denver." Sermons are available at the kiosk and can be mailed upon request.

Homebound members, also known as VIP’s, are visited by designated members or Stephen ministers on request and may also receive items such as Lenten books, Christmas Poinsettias or Easter Lilies. You may also request a lap robe (small blanket) or prayer shawl from a pastor or Stephen Minister.
