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.

What is a community group?

Community groups exist to make disciples through actively living out our faith together in community.

A community group is 3 or more people in similar life stages that does life together. They are groups who care for each other, has fun together, pursues the Lord together, points each other to the Lord, lives out their faith together, and does everything in between! Community Groups are what help us be the Church Monday – Saturday!

How do I join a community group?

The best way to get connected to a community group will be through the Community Group Launch this Fall starting September 29th.

Register for the launch HERE.

What is a community group launch?

The community group launch is a short term 3 week commitment on Thursdays with intentions to: cast vision, give a mission, equip, and form relationships for long term community groups. All of this is done at Calvary Church.

Register at mycalvarygr.org 

Monday Night Bible Study combines small group discussion with 20 minutes of large group teaching for both men and women.  Small groups are gender specific.  This year we will explore the book of Acts.

We’ll cover Acts 1-11 this fall and Acts 12-28 in the winter/spring semester. Following the four gospels in the New Testament, Acts shows us how the early Christians lived out the teachings of Jesus. It’s as if the gospels built the “automobile” and Acts fills it with gasoline and starts it on its way. Join us on this action-packed adventure to discover the power of the Spirit and the birth of the Church!
