Small Groups

Why CORE Groups?

God tells us that fellowship with other believers is important. If you've come to a weekend service at Calvary, you've probably noticed that it can be challenging to meet people in such a large group. The goal of CORE Groups is to provide small group environments for individuals to grow spiritually, develop lasting, meaningful and supportive relationships, and embrace opportunities to reach out to the community.
