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!

    1 Peter, A Living Hope in Christ
    by Jen Wilkin
    Teacher: Judy Trexler | Room 227
    The persecution of Christians today has reached a record high, and we often struggle with living holy lives within an increasingly secular and hostile culture. Find encouragement in Peter’s instruction to look beyond our current circumstances to the future inheritance and living hope we have in Christ. Cost: $18


    When Life Is Hard
    by James MacDonald
    Teacher: Rometa Arrington | Room 231
    When life is hard—really hard—we often spend our time pleading, begging, yelling, refusing, and questioning. While none of these things are necessarily unusual, these reactions are missing the ultimate point. When things get ugly and all hope seems to be lost… that is when we can display the superiority of God by leaning on His promises and truths.
    The course is one semester. Cost: $17


    Jesus Is Enough, A Study of the book of Hebrews
    by Dr. David Jeremiah and Dr. John MacArthur
    Teacher: Mary Beth Hohman | Room 232
    The Lord Jesus is our Creator, our Deliverer, our Intercessor, our High Priest, and so much more. Simply stated—"Jesus is Enough." As we study the book of Hebrews, we will find the repeated theme of Christ's supremacy and sufficiency. The class includes MacArthur study guide accompanied by the DVD teachings of Dr. David Jeremiah. The course is one semester. Cost: $15


    Acts Part 1, A Precept Upon Precept Study
    by Kay Arthur
    Teacher: Jackie Schaffer | Room 241
    Jesus told His disciples He was going away but would not leave them as orphans as the Father would send a Helper. Join us as we learn how the early Church, through the power of the Holy Spirit, spread the Gospel into all regions and to all nations despite persecution. Be encouraged by God’s power at work in these faithful servants and embrace God’s power in your own life. This course is two semesters. Cost: $23


    Radiant Women: Influence in the Darkness
    MOMS Class
    by Donna Navey
    Teacher: Donna Navey | Room 242
    This study of Scripture helps women to affirm God’s powerful and purposeful plan for them in every season of life. His Word and His Spirit give us direction to be radiant for His glory as we surrender to His will. Moms, the influence of your “little light” is without measure! The course is one semester and meets 9:30–11:35 AM. Cost: $15
