Current Life Groups

A Life Group is a small group of people within the church that meet regularly to live out their Christian life while growing Christ-centered communities. The members of the group strengthen each other through prayer and encouragement. Life Groups create an environment where people can bond, grow, and share life experiences. We believe that people grow better in circles than they do in rows. Life Groups are a great way to grow deeper in your faith with those you enjoy being around. Being a part of a Life Group is the best way to help a big church feel smaller. In a Life Group, you’ll connect with others here at Calvary who are in a similar stage of life, have similar interests, etc.

Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out and Lonely
by  Lysa Terkeurst

Rejection often finds its way into our hearts at an early age. Perhaps as a child you were teased mercilessly for your hair or clothes, or you received an injury and couldn’t play the sport you loved and had to watch from the sidelines, or maybe like Lysa Terkeurst, an adult who should have cared for you and nurtured you, left without explanation. These wounds dig deep into our sense of self, and can resurface in surprising ways as an adult. However, this doesn’t have to be the end of the story.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares honestly from her own struggles with rejection and gives readers concrete truths to combat the lies our old Enemy hurls our way. You can stop feeling left out, because even when you are overlooked by others, you are handpicked by God. You can change your tendencies to either fall apart or control the actions of others by adopting healthy ways to process your hurt. You are designed for a love without limits, a love that will never let go.

Fight: Winning the Battles That Matter Most
By Craig Groeschel

This study explores the life of Samson, helping you uncover who you really are—a man created with a warrior’s heart in the image of God—and how to stand up and fight for what’s right.

Find the strength to fight the battles you know you need to fight—the ones that determine the state of your heart, the quality of your marriage, and the spiritual health of your family. The battles that make you dependent on God as the source of your strength. The battles that make you come alive.

You will look at the life of Samson, showing how much we have in common with this guy. You’ll learn how to defeat the demons that make strong men weak. You’ll become who God made you to be—a man who knows how to fight for what’s right.

Learn how to fight with faith, with prayer, and with the Word of God. Then, when your enemy begins to attack, fight for the righteous cause that God gave you. Draw a line in the sand.
