God has called us to step out in faith. Instead of having regular women’s Bible Studies at church, we are encouraging women to prayerfully consider where they are to called to come alongside neighbors, co-workers, or friends with a simple opportunity to study the Bible.
We will journey together through regular monthly prayer gatherings. These will be times when we can encourage each other, share how God is working, and tackle any struggles on the journey through prayer. God has sent us out into the desert places of our community with the “Living Water” and we are trusting Him to cause salvation to spring up!
Go to NBS2go.com for tools on prayer walking and simple Bible studies to use! Our Women's Ministry staff would also be glad to meet with you and explore how God may be leading you! Contact Women's Ministry at ext. 5186.
Women's Ministry celebrates the fullness of life that comes from a meaningful relationship with Christ as we connect with one another. Below you can learn more about the various Women's Ministry programs that seek to serve the needs of women in all stages and seasons of life.

This is an opportunity for young women to connect with mature women from Calvary Church to learn more about God’s plan for women, wives and mothers.

Surrendering the Secret
Many women hide the painful secret of abortion deep in their hearts, and carry a great burden of shame and failure. Surrendering the Secret allows women to release this burden and find freedom through a redemptive community. Groups start throughout the year. Contact Karen Marsman for dates and times. No fee. All communication regarding this study is kept private and confidential. Advance registration required.
