Use Private Events

The Private Events feature allows you to create calendar events that are meant only for church staff or select others to view (i.e., meetings and events that don't apply to the entire congregation).

If this feature is grayed out, you will need to first create a password. Then you can checkmark any events as Private when creating or editing the event.
