Ministry Focus

It is in community where people experience God’s love by meeting together regularly, studying God’s Word, praying together and caring for one another. The following are opportunities for all adults to gather in community together. For a list of age-specific groups see the page for that specific ministry.

Calvary Equip Classes will help you gain knowledge of tools of the faith, find enrichment in your faith, obtain skills to do the work, receive opportunities to practice and find direction on next steps. This is a great way to journey deeper in your spiritual formation.

Pre-registration is required.

Do you delight in your prayer time or is it a duty?  Do you even have a consistent prayer life? Join us as we focus on the delight of prayer. This is a practical hands-on class to actually pray, not just talk about ways to pray. Bring your Bible as we pray through Scripture and experience prayer in a powerful new way.   

Discipleship 101 | Sunday, February 25-April 21| 6:00-8:00pm|Room 260-262 | $5
Register at mycalvarygr.org
As followers of Jesus we are given an incredibly important job… “go and make disciples of all nations.” Are you ready to help others grow spiritually? This class will provide a helpful resource guide for discipleship that covers essentials like how to help someone write their testimony, share the Gospel, pray and read the Bible. We’ll talk about accountability, stewardship and multiplication. Come as a refresher or if you are just beginning to live out the Great Commission.

Register at mycalvarygr.org
A Man and His Work is part of the Authentic Manhood 33 series of six-week sessions that gives men a vision for manhood as modeled by Jesus in His 33 years on earth. An inspiring vision of work from God’s bigger perspective. 

Rooted: Small Group Experience | 10 sessions |Room 252-254 | Wednesday, March 6 – May 15
Register at my.calvarygr.org

Are you looking to better connect to community here at Calvary?

Rooted is a new experience designed to connect you to God, the church, and your purpose. Together, in groups of 10-15 people from all walks of life, you’ll explore the Bible, engage in prayer and serve experiences, share stories, and practice rhythms essential to a healthy spiritual life. These spiritual rhythms aren’t new, or something the church recently created, every one of them is found in Acts 2 where the early church began.

Freedom in Christ for Men | 11 Sessions + Saturday, June 1 9:30am-4:30pm | Thursday, April 11 – June 20 | 6:30-8:30pm | Room 265 | $10
Register at mycalvarygr.org
Are you stuck in repeating patterns of sin? Do you want to have the freedom that Christ gives? Are you ready to uncover and work through any areas of deception holding you back? This 11 week course will help you grasp the amazing truth of your new identity in Christ- what Scripture says about who you are; spiritual conflict – how to take thoughts captive; how to heal damaged emotions and freedom of forgiveness. If you are ready to take your walk with Christ seriously, this class will give you the tools to walk in victory. A Saturday workshop will be held on June 1 from 9:30am-4:30pm as well.

All of our Adult Sunday classes are committed to engage more deeply with the Bible and authentic biblical community.  The focus of each class is growing in God’s Word, care, prayer, and community.  We encourage you to visit a few of the classes to see where God may be leading you to connect at Calvary Church.
