March 5 & 6 | Women's Event
Women around the globe will gather for fellowship, teaching, and worship during this amazing virtual event. Each participant will have access to the same powerful teaching and worship in the comfort of their own space which might mean pajamas, family, louder praises, flowing tears, touched lives, changed hearts, clearer vision for the future. Don't worry, God will work wherever we are, if we're open to Him! When you register using Calvary's access code, you'll gain access to a private group chat exclusively for Calvary women! Participating in the chat will give you chances to win prizes! The theme of IF:Gathering 2021 is "EVEN IF". Even if the worst happens, we won't lose hope. Even when things fall apart, even when things shut down, we believe our God cannot be stopped. He is on the move! His kingdom is coming on earth as it is in heaven and we want to be a part of His work.
