Calvary's Prayer List is published weekly in the Sunday Bulletin and monthly in the Chronicle. Portions of the list also are read aloud during the Prayers of the People in worship services at Calvary. In addition, Calvary's chapter of the Daughters of the King pray daily for all those on Calvary's prayer list.
To place a friend, family member or yourself on our prayer list, contact any of the clergy or Ebet Peeples, 525-6602, ext. 138.
Names appear on the list for four weeks and may be extended on request.

In addition to the Calvary Prayer List, we maintain several other lists specific to certain milestones in the lives of our members.
Each week a list of ten names of individuals and families appears in the Chronicle and Sunday bulletin under the heading “Calvary Cycle of Prayer.” The Calvary Cycle of Prayer allows the church to lift up and celebrate unique lives and ministries as part of this parish family. The Cycle continues throughout the year and, at some point, every one’s name appears. When that happens, hundreds of people, some the closest of friends, some yet to meet, will be thanking God for those on the Calvary Cycle of Prayer list.
When a child is born or adopted in our parish, it is cause for celebration for all of us. We encourage parents-to-be to let us know about the upcoming birth or adoption of a child. The parents’ names are added to our Great Expectations list and are prayed for during our services. Contact Ebet Peeples.
When there has been a birth in your family, regardless of whether the parents are members of this parish, we encourage you to let us know. We would like to celebrate this new life with you by lifting the child up in prayer during our services. Contact Ebet Peeples to add a name to this list.
When a member of your family or a friend dies, regardless of whether they were a member of this parish, we encourage you to let us know. We would like to grieve with you by lifting them up in prayer during our services. Contact Ebet Peeples to add a name to this list.
We recognize that a marriage is one of the most important times in the lives of our parishioners. Immediately following their wedding, we add the couple to our prayer list and pray for them during our services.
