Every marriage is impossible.  God intended for marriages to serve as a living, breathing metaphor of The-Only-Possible-Because-of-Jesus-Christ Marriage between Christ and the Church. But how can we practically live out this gospel picture at the grocery store, in our neighborhoods, and in our homes? Take the next step toward living the metaphor at the Impossible Marriage workshop with Matt and Laurie Krieg, authors of An Impossible Marriage.

Monday Night Bible Study

Monday Night Bible Study meets from September through April.

Monday Night Bible Study will study the book of Daniel with the title, “Resolved to Follow God.”  Daniel is full of inspiration and practical application for us today and its visions lay a foundation for Revelation where Calvary’s sermon series will be headed this year.

We will offer in-person or virtual small group discussion, fellowship and prayer beginning Monday, September 14 from 7:00-8:30pm and will provide optional teachings online instead of a large group gathering at this time. The Bible Study will be a bit simpler yet refreshing and impactful as we continue to navigate this difficult time.

Pre-registration is required and we will not be able to accommodate walk-ins.  Please contact Karen for availability. We hope you will join us!

Cost is $10 per semester.
