    by Emily Jensen & Laura Wifler

Connect with other moms and grand-moms to learn how the Gospel changes everything. Learn how to live the everyday moments of mothering in light of the resurrection of Christ with Gospel hope! Discover how to discern biblical direction when our culture collides with what the Bible says. We will address specific questions about modern motherhood and show how the redemptive story applies to everyday life, bringing hope, freedom, and joy. Our time together will include discussion, practical ideas, fellowship, and prayer. All are welcome! Cost: $13

You can take a “shopping cart” and push it through all the store’s aisles, but it will be empty if you do not personally take items off the shelves and place them into your cart. We all need six biblical ingredients in our cart: faith, trust, gratitude, submission, “clothes,” and victory over adversity. Come master these biblically, and you will find joy as you grow to be more like Christ. Cost: $10

    Daily Bible Reading Plan
    Join us on a chronological journey
    through God's Word

    At Calvary, preaching and teaching the Word of God is central to who we are as a church family, and it is essential that each one of us spends time reading the Bible every day.

    In 2021, we completed YEAR ONE of a two-year daily Bible reading plan that takes us chronologically through the Bible.

    We'll complete YEAR TWO of the plan in 2022.

    If you've always wanted to read the entire Bible and get a big-picture perspective through history, this reading plan is a great option.

    Download the PDF below. Or stop by the Welcome Desk in the Galleria to pick up a print copy to keep in your Bible.
