GrowthGroups meet during the fall, winter and spring on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and provides a greater focus upon the study and application of the scriptures to daily life. There are groups focused upon in-depth Bible study as well as groups more topically focused, from the essential foundational doctrines of our faith to the biblical response for many contemporary issues. In every group there is always time given to prayer and fellowship as well.
Directions to each GrowthGroup can be obtained at the Welcome Center in the lobby. Download the new 2018 Winter brochure for more information. Our 2018 classes will begin on January 10,2018.
Start your Wednesday off with our family dinner from 5:30–6:30 p.m. (served until 6:10 p.m.). The dinner is open to all, and it's a great opportunity to get to know others at Calvary.
Suggested donation is $2 per child between the ages of two and ten, $3 per person over the age of ten and a maximum charge of $10 per family.
There are many quiet areas of the church, including our Fellowship Center and our Library that are great places for personal study or prayer. Stop by the Library to pick up a book or movie! We have books for adults and children, Bible studies, doctrine, commentaries, quality Christian literature, and practical advice for Christian living. We also have audio books, VHS and DVD Christian movies and tapes.
