Equipping Classes

Sundays at 9:45am

Our adult classes are mid-sized environments that promote fellowship and purposeful teaching

and meet during the "school year" (Sept - Jun).  

We typically offer three different classes focusing on theology, living a Christian life, and the basics of Christianity. 

There will be two sessions each quarter to provide an opportunity to attend multiple classes per quarter.

Session 1: Jan 8 - Feb 19

Session 2: Feb 29 - Apr 9

Calendar Note - There will be a special combined class on March 12  (for Missions Emphasis Weekend)

Winter 2017 Quarter

Old Testament Survey: Part II

The Old Testament is a large portion of the Bible that many Christians find confusing and sometimes intimidating. In this class we will explore literary, historical and theological themes found throughout the wisdom, poetic and prophetic books of the Old Testament and we will learn how to rightly apply it to our lives.  - Room 107A


Hard Sayings of the New Testament

What exactly did Jesus mean when he said, “Do not judge so that you will not be judged”? Did Jesus really want his disciples to eat his flesh and drink his blood? How obedient did Paul want Christians to be to the government when he said, “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities”? In this class we will take a look at some challenging passages in the Bible and learn how to properly unpack the meaning and application of these and other passages in the New Testament – Room 107B & C


What is the Church?

Local churches are more than religious clubs or organizations.  Churches have been uniquely empowered by God to function in certain ways that glorify Him and accomplish His purposes.  In this class, we will learn what the church is, how churches are organized and governed, and what God calls churches to do.  - In the Family Life Center auditorium

Community Groups are the primary way to help you get connected at Calvary.  Groups are centered around biblical truth, authentic relationships, and serving both one another and the local community.  Community Groups are made up of 8-16 people that meet regularly in homes across the area throughout the week.
