Small Groups

Formation + Launch

This year has been a difficult year for community, and we’d love nothing more than to help you get reconnected with a new small group. We’ve updated and reformatted our small group formation and launch to create stronger, more united small groups! At this launch you’ll connect with your small group and learn together God’s design for Christians living in community. Over each of the following four sessions you and your small group will grow closer as you study the Bible, are equipped with tools and resources, and supported in launching together as a newly formed Calvary Small Group!

Pick one of our two five-week small group launches:

September 27 – October 25 from 6:30-8:30pm in Room 208

October 21 – November 18 from 6″30-8:30pm in Gathering Place

Fill out our small group form today and we will help you get connected. Questions? Contact community@calvarygr.org.

Adult Sunday Classes

Questions? Contact Karen.

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.

Monday Night Bible Study

September 20 – November 29 | 7:00-8:30pm | $10 per semester
Register at mycalvarygr.org

Our study this year is called Genesis: In the Beginning God. We are embarking on an exciting adventure through the first book of the Bible. We’ll cover Genesis 1-24 in the fall semester and Genesis 25-50 in the winter/spring semester. The study will highlight and build a foundation of hope in God’s promises. Many things change, but God’s truths stand as a firm foundation forever.

We all gather for a 20-minute large group teaching, then meet in gender specific small groups to go over the lessons and pray together.  In-Person and virtual group options are available.

Pre-registration is required.
