Calvary Community +
Seeks to familiarize Calvary attenders with ministries and programs here at our church. It provides a focus point for fellowship, discipleship, and service. There are opportunities to explore new developments, to benefit from excellent speakers, and to be actively growing in your faith. Calvary Community also helps people to engage with other people and God's Word. Consider taking part in this ministry and the opportunities available at Calvary Evangelical Free Church. We meet at 9 a.m. in the fellowship hall. Contact Wendell Amstutz for more information.
Household of Faith +
Household of Faith will begin meeting again in the Fall. A start-up date will be posted when we know more information.
Household of Faith is an inter-generational (adults & children), family based mini-congregation. Single parents and single adults are welcome.

Reflections meets in room 223 from 9:00 - 10:15 a.m. This a sermon-based discussion mini-congregation that is fluid. By fluid we mean we expect people to come and go on any given week. It is a great place for new attendees to get their first mini-congregation experience or long-time attendees to pop in when the topic of the pervious week's sermon is something they want to dig into much deeper. Contact Jeff Roepke for more information.
R.O.C.K meets at 10:30 a.m. in Room 225. (Reaching Others for Christ's Kingdom) We are a family of friends, devoted to Outreach. We pray and connect with one another, during and after church. "Interactive and informal" gives us the flexibility to hear and respond to the Spirit during our time together. We have a "shared leadership" thus involving and encouraging everyone to use their gifts for the body of Christ. Leader/Facilitator - Al Derksen
Come join us on Sundays this fall in Room 225 at 10:30 am, beginning Sept 17 for a book study. We will be going through the book "Relationship: Building Bridges to Connect People," a study designed to equip people to build interpersonal relationships based on Biblical principles. In addition to the bridge of Christ, the study addresses 15 bridges among which are authenticity, compassion, grace, impartiality, transparency, and trust. A wide range of ages will benefit from this book.
Connect Group +
