Calvary Church, Maumee – Vision:
Life change. To connect with one another, grow in faith and serve others.
Calvary Church, Maumee – Origin:
In 1951, a group of families were impressed of the Holy Spirit that there were too many people in Toledo who needed to know Jesus.
On December 2, 1951, they met for the first time in a store front building in East Toledo. This courageous group trusted God to use them to do great things for His Kingdom, and Calvary Church, Maumee was born.
For over 60 years, God has been leading this local body of believers in innovative ways to share the love of Jesus with the Toledo area and the world.
The people of Calvary Church, Maumee have trusted God throughout the years to lead them as they have moved from East Toledo to church homes in South Toledo and now to Maumee.
In 2010, the membership of Calvary Church, Maumee decided to once again trust God and relocate to the former Maumee 18 Theater on Conant Street.
