Women

At Calvary, women are serious about their faith and growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ as an active and inclusive community.

Our desire is to provide opportunities where women can grow closer to the Lord and connect with each other on a regular basis.

Women of all ages come together through weekly Adult Life Groups, Women’s Bible Studies, events, prayer meetings, and serving opportunities. We’d love to have you join us!

    Tuesday Morning Classes
    May 2 – June 6, 9:30 AM–Noon

    Dive into one of our NEW studies! Please pre-register by April 30 online or in the Galleria on Sunday mornings so we may provide the necessary books and materials for you.

    Supernatural Living in a Secular World
    by Dr. Chuck Swindoll
    Teacher: Mary Beth Hohman | Room 232
    How can you experience a victorious Christ-centered life in a world hostile to His Word? Today more than ever, followers of Christ are called to rise above their natural instincts and live a supernatural life — conquering sin, persevering through suffering, and trusting in God’s providence. Based on Romans 6–8, this study will equip you to battle deep-seated sin, square off against legalistic do's and don’ts, and stand firm through opposition. Cost: $12.50


    Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together 
    by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
    Teacher: Betty Farynyk | Room 242
    Imagine older women investing themselves in the lives of younger women. Imagine young wives, moms, and singles gaining wisdom and encouragement from experienced women. Imagine all women — from older women to young girls — living out His transforming Gospel together, strengthening the entire body of Christ and creating a powerful witness. As presented in Titus 2, this is Christian community as God designed it. Join us for a discussion of this book and take your relationships to new depths, that your life might find its fullest meaning as you share the Gospel of Christ. Cost: $14
    A Love That Will Not Let Me Go 
    by Kay Arthur
    Teacher: Jackie Schaffer | Room 241
    Each day in the news, we see evidence that our nation, originally founded on Christian principles, has all but turned away from a holy God. Similarly, more than 700 years before the birth of Christ, a prosperous Israel also turned away from God to the idols of wealth and fleshly desires. The God of Abraham was all but forgotten. But God had not forgotten His people. In His faithfulness, He sent a unique message of hope through the prophet Hosea, a message which has great relevance for us today. Join us as we are reminded that no one is beyond God’s love and offer of forgiveness — His is a love that will not let go! Cost: $11.50
