Intentional Relationships for Growth

We need more than friends. We need individuals who intentionally help us grow—who speak into our lives and others into whose lives we can speak. This is the way God created us. This is how God created the body of Christ to function (see 1 Corinthians 12:14-17, 19-22, 26; Ephesians 4:15-16; Philippians 2:3-4; Hebrews 10:24-25).

So we want to help you cultivate intentional relationships for growth.

Sermon-Based Small Groups

Because we want to be serious about being "doers of the word and not hearers only" (James 1:22), we organize sermon-based small groups at Calvary Church. 

Sermon-based small groups are like traditional small groups except they're not based around a curriculum, book study or even a teacher but around a series of questions that are based on the Sunday morning sermon here at Calvary Church. Not new content but an opportunity to extend the truth of the Sunday morning sermon with a desire for meaningful personalization.

Sermon-based questions are available to anyone who submits their email address as a subscriber.  Each Sunday, an email is sent to the subscription list by 5:00pm.  We feel this is the most effective method for getting questions to you each week for your group to discuss.

Start or Join a Group

Are you already in a small group? Encourage them to switch to the sermon-based approach when you are finished with your current study.

If you're looking for a small group and are already connected to an ABF at Calvary, check with your leader or teacher to see if they are forming small groups from the class membership. If not, start a new group with others from your ABFs.
