Finding Where You Belong




Ways to connect with our community

Sunday Morning Groups

You are already here. Why not connect while you are here? Groups meet at 9 and 10:30. Strangers become acquaintances and over time, cherished friends. Check out these groups and find a “nub” that fits: Calvary Community, Reflections, Encounter, ROCK, Oasis, Household of Faith, Connect

Small Groups During the Week

Maybe you work Sunday mornings or are busy serving or chasing kids. Small groups from Calvary meet throughout the week in host homes. If you have an open “nub” in your schedule for a weekly small group, let us know when that is. Help OTHERS connect. We need hosts and leaders!

Serving Groups

They say the best friendships happen when forged in the trenches of battle. We don’t think that’s an accident. Called by Jesus both connect and to serve one-another, maybe it’s God’s way of multi-tasking! One of these “nubs” might fit your connect need (& bless others in the process!) Choir, AWANA leaders and helpers, Compassion Counseling Center, Coffee Connection team, Usher team, Welcome team, Wednesday night meal team, Calvary work days.

Study, Prayer, and Play Groups

We can’t guarantee those who play pray together, or play together, stay together. But a deeper connection is almost certainly to follow. Here are examples happening daily: Pre-service prayer team, Renovare’, Bible Study Fellow-ship, quarterly Men’s Breakfasts, Wednesday daytime Bible Study with Pastor Larry, PEP and Senior Adult Fellowship monthly events, even Homeschool field trips
