The youth from the Callisburg Church of Christ got together this past

to a Texas Ranger ballgame in the works and when a date is finalized

While we have a lot of activities going on our primary purpose at the
Callisburg Church of Christ is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
and worship God. We would love to have you come and join us. Sunday

Calvary Baptist Church
We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m., where the dress is casual,
with a relevant Bible message, and the music is a blend of hymns and
contemporary praise. However, at CBC we acknowledge that worship is
much more than the songs that we sing or the music we play. It is a
life lived daily that brings glory to the Father and can be expressed
in many ways, such as reading His Word, prayer, giving, preaching,
life on mission, and spending time alone with God daily, to just name
a few. The important aspect of worship is that our heart and mind are
honoring and lifting up God in a way that He is the center of our
