New to Calvary?

Play the video for an introduction to the Calvary family and the focus of the church. Then scroll down for FAQs.


Question #1: How do I find Calvary?

A: We are located at 6520 Ray Road in Raleigh. You can find directions here. During the renovation of our worship space, we are worshiping at Lynn Road Elementary School (1601 Lynn Rd) at 10:30 AM each Sunday.

 Question #2: What should I wear?

A: Wear what is comfortable to you. At Calvary, you will find everything from casual to jackets and ties. We are a community of people gathering to worship Jesus, and we would love to have you join us as you are!

 Question #3: Where should I park?

A: Calvary’s building is located on approximately 8 acres of land in North Raleigh, and can be somewhat difficult to locate from Ray Road, so be looking for the red Calvary sign (on the right from Leesville Road and on the left from Lynn Road). A long driveway will lead you to the back of the building where our parking lot begins. You are welcome to park in the back of the building, or drive to the side parking lot, which leads to a sidewalk that leads you to the front entrance.

Question #4: How do I enter the building?

A: The best way to enter Calvary Presbyterian Church is to park on the side lot and take the sidewalk to the front entrance. Once you enter the double doors, the sanctuary entrance will be right in front of you. If you happen to enter the building from the back entrance, simply walk down the long hallway and make a left, where you will find the front lobby and sanctuary entrance.

Question #5: What should I expect during the worship service?

A: Whether you are new to church or you have been attending church your entire life, the best way to follow along in the worship service is to grab a worship guide on your way in the door. Because we find our story in the the story of God’s work in and through His church through the ages, our music includes both ancient hymns and modern worship songs that are Biblically driven and Christ exalting. We are typically led through a variety of instruments, including the piano and guitars and occasionally you may even hear the hammer dulcimer or bagpipes. There will be prayer on behalf of God’s people and the world around us, as well as public readings of Scripture and confessions of our faith. You can also expect teaching and preaching that lifts high the name of Jesus and applies God’s Word to our lives today. We end each worship service remembering the gift of salvation in Christ Jesus, by celebrating the Lord’s Supper together.

We welcome you to participate as you feel comfortable or to simply observe.  We would love to have you join us.
