Large Group Hangout
Join us in the Upper Room (youth room, 208) to encounter the presence and power of Jesus! The FIRST upper room was where the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples and ignited the early church. In CALVARY'S Upper Room we want to encounter Jesus just like the first disciples. May we love the Lord and proclaim Christ to the ends of the earth!
Connect Small Groups
A “Connect” Small Group is simply a group of students meeting weekly to belong, grow, serve, reach out, and connect with Jesus. Besides Bible study, prayer, and fun, small groups provide relationship, accountability, discipleship, authenticity, responsibility and mission.
Sunday Mornings (Sept-May)
9:00-10:00 AM -- Jr High Sunday School (Grades 6-8)
9:00-10:00 AM -- Faith 101/Confirmation (Grades 9-10; seasonally. Contact the Calvary office for info.)
Faith 101/Confirmation is a discipleship class (typically for ninth graders) taught by Dave Motta and the youth team. The class meets throughout the school year and focuses on faith basics, Bible study, and church history. Confirmation culminates with a Celebration Service where students can be confirmed in the faith, be baptized as a believer, and/or become an official member of Calvary.
