The Calvary College Ministry is centered on developing

Intimacy with God, Community with Believers, and Influence on Others.

It's is not just something to do; it's something to become a part of. We want you to be connected.

Connected to God and other people; connected through great worship times, fun socials and Catalyst - our Sunday morning worship service for College Students.

But it doesn't stop there. Part of building a connection is being part of a community. We would love to help you create deep friendships with people who will help you in your walk with Christ.

Our mission, above all, is to lead people to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ – We at Calvary strive to know Jesus and to make him known!! We hope you’ll join us soon!

community groups

Community is about bringing people together so they can help each other draw near to God. Life is a journey toward God, and having strong community surrounding us is essential. Community Groups meet weekly at various times both on and off campus. Each group includes prayer and Bible study, but the main focus is to develop relationships that will help us draw near to Christ. Community is also about serving others in the body of Christ. For example, we often plan ministry opportunities that serve the children or elderly at Calvary.

All of our groups have three common threads that we have found to help build community:

  • Bible Study: Each group does some type of study. It can be a book of the Bible or any other book.
  • Service: Serving together is a great way to develop relationships and spread God's love.
  • Prayer: Everyone needs people to stand by them and pray for them, so prayer is an important part of each community group.

  • Childcare at Calvary: Any Sunday during the main worship service, help with kids in Nursery or Sunday School. Contact the church office for details. Extra hands are almost always needed in the preschool and nursery classes on Wednesday nights during Cafe. Contact Andrew Schmudde for more info.

Have an idea for service? We are always open to new ideas in the way of service. We want you to be involved at Calvary and one of the best ways to be involved and connected is through service. Set up a meeting with Joe, our college pastor, if you are interested in a new ministry that C2 can be involved in.
