What does it mean to "grow deeper" in your faith? Spiritual depth isn't just about knowledge; it’s about everyday life and relationships.

At Calvary Church, our desire is to see people discipled and equipped. Outside of services, this is a place to connect and grow deeper in loving God and in fellowship with others. Throughout the week, we have many opportunities to help you grow deeper in your walk with the Lord.

Sunday Opportunities 
9 & 10:30 a.m. 
A variety of opportunities are offered during both service times. This is a great time for fellowship as well as study.

Wednesday Opportunities 
7:30 p.m. after corporate worship in the Fellowship Hall
For those wishing to grow deeper in faith, you can attend Midweek worship and then take part in one of the numerous studies that are offered. No matter which class you attend, you’ll be sharpening your discipleship skills for Christ.

God wants us to know Him, and these classes help us to do that in a strong, faith community.
