Women

At Calvary, women are serious about their faith and growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ as an active and inclusive community.

Our desire is to provide opportunities where women can grow closer to the Lord and connect with each other on a regular basis.

Women of all ages come together through weekly Adult Life Groups, Women’s Bible Studies, events, prayer meetings, and serving opportunities. We’d love to have you join us!
