Discover Calvary Classes
Discover Calvary is a six-week class, offered three times a year, which chronicles our journey with the Lord. This course explores our vision and values, our practices and philosophies, and our calling and destiny in the Lord. We are a people on mission with Jesus.
These classes are a great way to find out about Calvary and explore what it means to be a part of this faith community. Discover Calvary is one part of the process of becoming a member at Calvary.
Journey Groups are the heartbeat of Calvary. Our vision calls us to express true Christian community. What does that mean? First, God is building us into a place where He dwells (Ephesians 2:19-22). We want God to feel at home in us. Second, we want to grow in our capacity for authenticity (1John 1:7). That means we are growing in our ability to be open and honest with others in a safe place. Third, we want to practice being a community where our attachment with the Lord and others fuels our joy, which empowers godly living (Numbers 6:22-26; John 15:9-12). Fourth, Journey Groups are one of the primary places where we minister to and care for one another as a body (James 5:16).
Classes & Workshops
Growing in intimacy with God also requires an ongoing deepening of understanding. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2 (NIV)
There are several ways that His Delight helps women at Calvary get connected. Here is our latest His Delight News.
Each quarter we host a ladies’ event. These can be anything from a night of comedy, Bunco or crafts, dinner with a guest speaker, a worship and ministry night, a scavenger hunt, or possibly a movie night. You just never know!
Serve Locally & Globally
God wants us to get in on what he is doing, to bless what he is doing. He is moving in the earth. Christ first calls us to draw near to him, to follow him, and to cooperate with his working in and through our lives (Matthew 4:19, 9:35-39; Philippians 2:12-13). Then, the love of Jesus propels us into the harvest fields of our neighborhood, city, region, nation, and world (Matthew 9:35-38, 10:1-8; Luke 9:1-2, 10:1-2; Acts 1:8). Out of intimacy with Jesus, we are moved to touch others. Under the empowering of God’s Spirit, we are enabled to serve God’s purposes in the earth.
Jesus promised that his Father’s house would be a house of prayer for all nations (Mark 11:17; Isaiah 56:6-7). The Lord also promises that joy would be a primary characteristic of His house (Isaiah 56:6-7).
The Prayer Room at Calvary is one of the primary places where we give corporate expression to the culture of prayer at Calvary Community Church. The Prayer Room at Calvary it exists to minister to God in intimate worship, and partner with Him in prayer for our city and the nations of the earth.
Ministry Team Training
This world is in need of believers who will operate in the authority and power given to us by the Lord Jesus for the sake of the Kingdom (Mathew 16:19).
Jesus called us to be his witnesses in our spheres of influence (Acts 1:8). We need the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to be witnesses for Jesus in this world. The question for us, then, is: Are we moving in the power of the Holy Spirit to minister to people’s needs and boldly give witness to Jesus Christ (Acts 4:29-31)?
