What does it mean to "grow deeper" in your faith? Spiritual depth isn't just about knowledge; it’s about everyday life and relationships.

At Calvary Church, our desire is to see people discipled and equipped. Outside of services, this is a place to connect and grow deeper in loving God and in fellowship with others. Throughout the week, we have many opportunities to help you grow deeper in your walk with the Lord.

Sunday Opportunities

Wednesday Opportunities
