Discipleship Groups

Connect in a discipleship group
and find encouragement

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as we see the Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Christ's church was meant to be like a BLAZING FIRE--hot, impassioned, and enduring! Without a vibrant connection to a healthy congregation, many "lone ember" Christians soon fade away in their faith. In contrast, believers who have encouragement and accountability in some sort of discipleship group or ministry team will be personally challenged to “burn on” in ever-increasing intensity as they walk with Christ. We firmly believe that EVERY believer needs some sort of small group connection. Here are the current small group offerings:

Sunday Discipleship Groups


Follow Me

Date: Starting Sept. 15
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 101

Is it possible to claim to be a believer but to have missed Christ’s true call? Jesus is not something we add to our lives, HE IS OUR LIVES. When Jesus says, “follow me,” it changes everything. You will never be bored. You will always have purpose. Unspeakable joy is yours. But when Jesus calls a person, He calls them to come and die so they may truly live. Have you answered that call? Contact John Blair (701-429-3309) with questions.

Financial Peace University

Date: Starting Sept. 15
Time: 8:30-10:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 115

Planning for the future is hard when you’re still paying for the past. Join more than 5 million people who’ve experienced breakthrough through Financial Peace University! Learn to create (and stick with) a budget, save for emergencies, trust God with the first fruits of your heart, and gain freedom over fear through the encouragement of other believers. (Children are welcome for part or all of class if needed). Contact Alycia Walker (fin.sec@calvaryfargo.com) with questions.

A Living Hope

Date: On-going
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 102

Would you like to know Jesus better and learn to read the Bible for yourself? In the western world, we are immersed in Christian resources but parched in our personal knowledge of Christ. Wayne Eastman will guide us in living hope through a verse-by-verse study of 1 Peter. Grow in maturity, obedience, and personal knowledge of Jesus. This class is on-going and always open to new visitors. Moving (starting Sept. 15) to Room 102. Contact Wayne Eastman at (701-371-2570) with questions.

4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice

Date: Starting Sept. 15
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 103

Jesus said, “my sheep hear my voice.” Yet many believers go their whole lives wondering if they’ve ever received clear direction or encouragement from the Spirit. Practical yet inspiring, 4 Keys combines the best of the Word and the Spirit to help guide and ground believers in their adventure to discern the voice of God. Contact Steve & Meghan Dockter (701-367-9208) with questions. This class has a couples focus but is open to all: everyone is welcome!

Young Adults: Follow Me

Date: Starting Sept. 15
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 202

Is it possible to claim to be a believer but to have missed Christ’s true call? Join high school students and young adults as we wrestle with Christ’s invitation for our lives. Contact Hermie Banico (701-840-7068) with questions.

Discovering the Bible

Date: Sept. 22 & 29
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 104

The Bible is unlike any other book. Despite 40 authors, contributing to 66 books, over nearly 2000 years, God uses His divinely inspired Word to tell one story: His redeeming love for humanity. Using a friendly, easy-to-learn format, this class will help you see how the Bible ties together, understand the purpose of scripture, and grow in your relationship with Jesus. Meets Contact Kevin & Missy Eastland (701-799-5419) with questions.

We Over Me

Date: Starting Sept. 15
Time: 6:00 PM
Meeting Location: Room 101

It’s easy to get frustrated with the local church. But the Lord has a purpose and plan that He uniquely accomplishes through the Body of Christ, and He wants you to be part of it. Over 9 sessions, we’ll study the wake-up call to the churches of Revelation, discover the truth of Christ’s desire for His church, and embrace our individual call to the church. Contact Greta Burck (701-361-2480) with questions.

Finding Freedom From Your Past

Time:  6:30 PM
Meeting Location: 104

“As they went, they were healed” (Lk. 17:14). We all have regrets or strongholds that try to drag us back to our lives before Christ.

As we press into Jesus, you’ll experience prayer for breakthrough, learn to guard your heart, and gain keys for walking in life and freedom. Join us Oct. 9-30 (Room 103), and Nov. 1 (details TBA) for an evening of worship, prayer, and deliverance. Contact Wayne Eastman at (701-371-2570) with questions.
