Join us Thursday mornings, 9:15-11:15 a.m. during the school year.
Renovaré sets the stage for women to draw near to God. We remove distractions and join our hearts in a common desire to know God more deeply. We worship in song, fellowship in love, and study God’s word. For over 30 years, Renovaré, formerly Coffee & Friends, has been the heartbeat of Women’s Ministries at Calvary, and as we move into the 2018-19 season, women of all ages and stages of life continue the lively pursuit of God, encouraging each other to draw near to our mighty God with sincere hearts and sure faith.

Our Renovare Fall studies
Relational Skills in the Bible: A Bible Study Focused on Relationships
Your group will journey together all year through the Bible to look at relational skills from well-known people like Adam and Eve, Abraham, Jacob and Esau, Peter, the early church, and more. You will gain a fresh perspective from Genesis to Revelation on how the Lord created relationships and wants us to thrive in relationship with Him and others.
You will be inspired to actually build relational skills into your own life through exercises with your group. The thrill of growing and applying these new skills will only be outdone by experiencing joy-filled, thriving relationships both inside and outside of the group.
Leaders: Julie Zuehlke, Rena Laack, Lila Manuell
Precepts: Freed from Sin’s Power. Romans Part 2
Free from the guilt and power of sin, but what about the flesh? Discover how justification by faith relates to day-by-day living through the Holy Spirit’s power – the amazing process of sanctification.
These inductive studies are standalone, so women are welcome to join who have not taken part 1. In order to have your book for the first day please register by August 15th so that the leaders can place a group order. You are welcome to register later but, in that case, would need to order your own book. We will go at a slower pace, taking 2 weeks per lesson, and will be part of the large group time.
Leaders: Vicki Tierney, Carolyn Whitford.
The Amazing Collection
This year we will cover the last three workbooks of the collection. This includes Paul’s letters to the churches (Romans-2nd Thessalonians); Paul’s letters to pastors (1st Timothy-Philemon); and Other letters and Revelation (Hebrews-Revelation).
Newcomers who have not studied the previous books are very welcome.
Leaders: Becky Isaacs, Sharon Kaihoi, Nancy Sobczak

Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath
by Priscilla Shirer. (First Semester) Second semester to be decided.
By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christ likeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
Leaders: Kathy Bergquist, Sarah Satterblom
Why Do You Believe That?
By Mary Jo Sharp (First Semester) Second semester to be decided.
Join Mary Jo in a practical seven-session study and gain understanding and skill to share Jesus effectively with others, and better understand your own faith. Answer your doubts, build your confidence, and start changing lives.
Leaders: Stephanie Conkright, Mindy Slettedahl
