CALVARY COMMUNITY: This Sunday at Calvary we continue the study on the book of Matthew with “Grace and God’s Kingdom” using scripture references from Matthew 20.
Please join us every Thursday to Pray 4 Manteca. This is a weekly prayer group open to anyone. It’s held each Thursday from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in Modular Room 401. Its duration is one hour but is also designed for those who may only be able to stay for ten minutes. It gives people an opportunity to stop and call on God for the challenges they face in their respective areas of life and work.
Easily accessible from any direction in the valley (from Interstate 5 or Highway 99, Lathrop Road exits), Calvary is located at 815 West Lathrop Road. For more information on our ministries and events, contact the church office at 239-1345 or www.calvarymanteca.org.
