Calvary is the church because of people, gathering around the belief that God wants us together in community—to worship, connect, and serve.
We provide the following opportunities to help you connect more deeply with others who also want to grow in faith and community. Because when we become better connected to one another, we remember that we all belong. Everyone has a place in God’s family.
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
Join Calvary's Financial Peace University group led by Alicia and Adam Bertram and learn how to beat debt and make a plan for the future. This 9-week course begins Wednesday, February 27, and runs through April 24, from 7:15-8:15pm. Childcare is available! Contact the church office for more information, 320-763-5178.
Life was not meant to be lived alone. In fact, we believe God created us in such a way, that life is simply better when we’re connected to one another and God. Connect Groups provide regular opportunities to circle up with 6-12 people who you know, or want to know better. Regardless of where you’re at in life or faith, you need people who are willing to ask questions, listen, laugh, and be real with you. Find a setting that’s comfortable—in a home or elsewhere—and dive in! The church will help provide resources and will offer support along the way. Form a Connect Group today, and watch your faith deepen as you connect with others, grow in your relationship with God, and experience authentic community. Contact the church to begin the process.
At Calvary, we love to ask, "What is my next step?" Next Steps Gatherings help you explore that very question. Perhaps you’ve attended worship for a while and wonder how to best get connected to others from the community of faith. Or maybe you’d like to become a Calvary member and have questions we can answer first. These gatherings provide an informal setting for you to discover more about Calvary and its mission. You will have the opportunity to meet pastors and staff and interact with other people who are involved in various ways at Calvary. Contact the church office for an upcoming Next Steps Gathering.
