Life Groups

Calvary's gatherings and ministries have moved online during the COVID-19 outbreak. Life Groups that are actively meeting remotely and accepting new members are listed below.



  • Life Groups at Calvary exist to help you Be Known, Know Others, and Know God.
  • All Life Groups have four major functions: fellowship together, utilize Scripture, pray for each other, and serve together.
  • Life Groups are made up of 3-15 individuals, have a place and way to meet regularly, are guided by a facilitator committed to being spiritually and emotionally sound, and as a ministry of Calvary Church are accountable to church leadership and vision.

While all groups share the above qualities, each group develops its own style. Here is a list of open groups (actively meeting and have space for new participants) and a bit about each:
