Growth Groups

Calvary offers Growth Groups because God designed each of us for community. Growth Groups are circles of people who look out for us and help us learn to be more like Jesus. There's always an empty chair just waiting for you.  Contact the group leader to get involved. 


Additional opportunites to build relationships and grow in faith are also found here.


Email GrowthGroups@Calvary-Lutheran.org for information or to sign up for any of the groups.
