Pastor Jeremy, along with his wife Brooke and their sons, moved to Cedar Rapids from Arizona to plant this church in July of 2009. Calvary Community Church was originally planted as Calvary Chapel of Cedar Rapids and held its first service on Sunday, August 02, 2009. Since then we have seen The Lord’s hand at work in amazing ways as He has faithfully grown the church in numerous ways. Over the years the Lord has definitely added to our numbers, but even more so, added to our Spiritual depth and Biblical understanding.
In October of 2009 we, being led of The Lord, opened the doors for Calvary Christian Preschool & Daycare. It’s taken a few years but the school has grown substantially and is now at capacity!
In 2013 The Lord brought an opportunity along for us to launch a new FM Radio station here in the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City Corridor which, after much prayer, we decided to pursue. By January of 2014 we had received our CP (construction permit) from the FCC and began the process of praying through how to build this new work for The Lord. We quickly filed for the call letters KEWR and named the station Enduring Word Radio after hearing from God that this station was to be wholly dedicated to the teaching of His Word.
As we were praying through this new radio launch we felt led to rename the Church to better serve the community we are in. Through this leading we changed our name to Calvary Community Church and God has blessed that immensely.
Please check back from time to time to see what new things The Lord is doing here at Calvary Community Church!
