GROUPS

Pursuing Jesus In Community

It's easy on Sunday mornings to come and go without ever making any meaningful connections with others. Calvary is a growing church, and chances to really connect with others is not always easy just one day a week. This is why joining a group is so important.  Various groups meet throughout the week for fellowship, care, accountability and study. Those in your group(s) will likely become some of your closest friends - learning and growing with you, keeping you accountable and encouraging you in your faith.  


See the group directory below for more information on each group.

GROUP DIRECTORY

We encourage you to find a group below that fits your schedule. If you are having trouble getting connected, please let us know by contacting the church office.

  • We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through Home Fellowships. Made up of men and women from all generations of life, these small groups meet throughout the week around our community for the study of God’s Word, fellowship, care, prayer, accountability, and sharing. They’re a place where we work to consider each other over ourselves. No group is perfect, and no two groups are exactly the same. We don’t expect them to be. Because people are messy, groups are messy. Find a home fellowship.

  • Join other men at Calvary who desire to grow in Christ. Every week we read the Scriptures, pray together, break bread and encourage one another towards a Spirit-filled life that honors Jesus Christ.


    We gather at 8AM - 9:30AM every Saturday at a local home in Monroe. For location information, please email men@calvarymonroe.com.


    Ministry Leader: Jack Henderson

  • The women's ministry provides the ladies in our Sky Valley communities an opportunity to seek Jesus together. We gather every Friday at 10AM to study God's word, pray, fellowship, and encourage one another towards Spirit-filled lives that honor Jesus Christ.


    For location information, please email Dacyl at women@calvarymonroe.com.


    Ministry Leader: Dacyl Sommer

  • BELOVED meets every week for fellowship and study. Intended for ladies ages 15-19, this unique ministry encourages relationships between young women within the body of Christ, growth in understanding of God's word, as well as teaching the fundamental truths of what it means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • Financial Peace University

    We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! FPU classes meet for around an hour and a half each week for nine weeks. 


    To find out when our next FPU class begins, please contact the church office.

Q:  What is the format of a weekly group meeting? 

A: While each group is unique, most groups divide their time between fellowship (i.e. building relationships while have a meal together), Bible study, and prayer. Most groups tend to meet for 1.5 - 2 hours. In order to build momentum and promote group intimacy and stability, it works best if group members make weekly attendance a high priority.


Q:  Can I join a group at anytime? 

A:  Yes, however, a group may cycle through seasons of being open to new members and seasons of being in-session in order to foster intimacy and stability.  Certain focus groups (i.e. Financial Peace) require registration to attend.  Home fellowships require you to sign up so we can help place you with the most appropriate home fellowship.  All other groups (men/women Bible studies, young adult studies) are open for anyone to attend at any time.  


Please contact the church office if you have a question about a particular group.


Q: Is there a commitment required to attend a group?

A:  Community occurs when we live in faith, humility, and hospitality with one another. Because consistent attendance and participation is key to building healthy community, we ask everyone who signs up for one of the home fellowships to have an understanding of this need for commitment.  This allows a period of growing in intimacy with those currently in your group.  Please feel free to sign up for a home fellowship when you assess that you are able to make this commitment.  All other groups (men/women Bible studies, young adult studies) are open for anyone to attend at any time. Certain focus groups (i.e. Financial Peace) require registration to attend and encourage a commitment for the duration for the program.


Q:  What if I have kids?

A:  Childcare is one of the biggest questions people face when deciding whether or not to join a group.  Please don't let childcare keep you from joining a group! The struggle to find a childcare solution is worth the effort!  Your group will have to decide which option works best for everyone.  


Some options include: 

  • Each parent arranges babysitting for their own children.
  • All parents pool their money to pay a babysitter(s) to watch the children in a different room in the host home.
  • Groups create a rotation schedule in which the adults from the group take turns supervising children in a different room in the host home.
