Fall Community Groups

Let's get to know the heart of Jesus.  How do we do that?  Like any relationship, it requires

that we commit to making the relationship a priority.  Three of our core values here at Calvary are: to grow strong Christians, to experience the presence of God and to pray persistently and passionately.  These attributes describe a person who has made their relationship with God a priority; one who desires to know Jesus not just about Him; someone who is passionate about being a Christ follower.  These core values will always be reflected in all our ministries. 

When you look through the catalog of Community Group offerings for this Fall, you will see many opportunities to join together with others to develop godly disciplines.  The dictionary defines discipline as ‘a training, activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill’. That’s our goal, to train ourselves. 1 Timothy 4:7-8 says “train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”  As with any endeavor to change a life pattern or develop better habits, we are consistently more successful when we have the support and encouragement of others. That's what Community Groups are all about, supporting and encouraging one another to grow in our faith.  Check out the groups for Fall below:
