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 gender or age-specific groups, see the page for that specific ministry.

COVID-19 Response

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are currently encouraging all groups to meet virtually.  If you aren’t active in a smaller community at Calvary, consider joining a virtual small group. For additional information and updates on our regular  programming, see below.

Calvary Equip Classes

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.

The What We Believe (membership class) is being offered virtually.  Click here for more details and to register.

Calvary Equip: Foundations  – Meeting virtually
Register at mycalvarygr.org
Foundations is a community of engaged and newly married young adults that get together to be challenged and encouraged as we focus on glorifying God through our marriages. We meet for teaching and discussion designed to give a Biblical framework for making godly decisions and forming healthy life-long habits that will help us strengthen our relationships and help us grow in Christ. Join us to work on building a strong and lasting foundation for your marriage.

Virtual Small Groups

Just because we’re social distancing, doesn’t mean we need to be isolated. If you are not already connected in a group at Calvary, we would love to help you connect with a virtual small group for fellowship, prayer, and spiritual encouragement!  We are launching new groups to study The Art of Neighboring together. Learn practical, COVID-informed ways to build connections with your neighbors during this unique moment in our world.

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