The strength of a church is often reflected in the strength of its families, and the strength of a family is often as strong as the man who leads it.

The men of Calvary Church help to strengthen families in our church and community through fellowship and serving.

Check out our upcoming events for men, or spend some quality guy time in one of our Men's Bible studies or serving opportunities, such as Hearts & Hammers!

    Men's Bible Studies
    Ongoing morning and evening options

    Small groups meet weekly for Bible study to enrich their faith and grow in fellowship. Bring your Bible — newcomers are welcome anytime!

    Morning Studies

    Jumpstart your workday! Hot coffee and breakfast snacks are available each week.

    Monday Mornings
    6:30–7:30 AM

    Room 242 | Dave Wentink
    This study in the book of Ephesians teaches how to live a Spirit-filled life, discover how to overcome sin, integrate the Word into everyday life, be a better witness to others, and fulfill the plan God has designed for you!

    First and Second Thessalonians
    Conference Room A (4th Floor) | Tom Miller
    These are Paul's first two epistles, letters to a church he helped start in Macedonia. With them he encourages, instructs, and gives hope in the midst of persecution. The message is simple but clear, and one we still need to hear today: Stay the course, don't wander from the truth, cling to the hope of knowing that Christ is coming back. The message for us?  Be ready.”

    Tuesday Mornings
    6:30–7:30 AM

    Gospel of John
    Room 306 | Bill Harding
    We all long for a full, rich, satisfying life. But how do we fill up the empty places in our soul? How can we quench our thirst for something deeper, more lasting, more meaningful? John urges us to take a fresh look at Jesus and invites us to renew our faith in the One who promises to be the way of true life.

    Detours Bible Study
    Stone Crest Chick Fil A | Jeffrey Arrington & Sy Pugh
    Join us for this powerful study by Tony Evans that examines the life of Joseph as he endures trials, injustice, and even betrayal. Believers will ultimately find comfort and encouragement as we learn to trust in God's redemptive plan and sovereign will. Newcomers welcome!

    Tuesday Evenings
    7:00–9:00 PM

    Psalms – A Call to Worship
    Room 401 | Wayne Hackbarth
