Please pre-register your kids for childcare

Note: We are asking that all returning moms re-register their kids for our winter semester.

We are offering FREE Thursday Morning Child Care

To offset the expense of offering FREE or reduced rate child care, we are asking all Renovare women to consider supporting the ministry financially. Thanks for your support!

Another way to support this ministry is by signing up to volunteer one week as a child care worker.  Signing up for a week does not guarantee you will be needed to work that week.  You will only be contacted to volunteer if a worker is unable to work that day.  Please register early as Calvary requires completed background checks for all our child care workers.

What Happens When Women Say Yes to God

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering…What is God’s plan for my life? or Can He really use me? you’re not alone. Lysa TerKeurst has wrestled through those same questions. But she’s also learned that we were absolutely created to participate in God’s divine activity and experience His rich blessings. We just have to say yes to Him!

Leaders: Melissa Meyers & Heather Cheney

God of Creation: A Study of Genesis 1-11

The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.

Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into the first 11 chapters of Genesis by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Teaching videos are key in understanding this study. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.

Leaders: Gail Peterson, Kristi Muston
Bible Study: God of Creation: A Study of Genesis 1-11 by Jen Wilkin
Note:  Our study this winter is a continuation from the fall.  We will be starting in Genesis chapter 4 in January.  New comers welcomed!

Blessed: Experiencing the Promise of the Book of Revelation

Over 12 chapters, Blessed covers the full text of the book of Revelation, exploring its call to patient endurance as God’s sovereign plans for judgment and salvation are worked out in the world. This book shows that Revelation is less about when Jesus will return and more about who we are to be, what we are to do, and what we can expect to endure as we wait for Jesus to return to establish his kingdom in the new creation.

Leaders: Ingrid Ansell, LeeAnn Tebben & Deb Zeldenrust
Bible Study Book: Blessed: Experiencing the Promise of the Book of Revelation by Nancy Guthrie
Note: This is a new study that starts the first week of February. 

Armor of God 

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. 

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you. 

Leaders: Stephanie Conkright and Angie Schatz 
Bible Study Workbook: Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
Note: This is a new study beginning January 19th.

Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs

Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs explores two beautiful Old Testament poetic books that answer two of life’s deepest questions: “What is the meaning of life?” and “What is love?”

Leaders: Jeni Harmon, AJ Bradshaw, Mary Hanson
Bible Study Book: Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs:  Wisdom’s Searching and Finding by Kathleen Buswell Nielson
Note: This is a new study beginning January 19th.


Luke Part 1 – Who is This Man Who Forgives Sins? – Precept Workbook (NASB)  11 lessons
The Gospel of Luke is a walk through events in Jesus’ life.  Watch how the Son of Man, the Savior, enters the homes of the suffering, visits tax collectors, and dines with sinners.  Learn from His words, His walk, and His relationships with common people what it really means “to follow Him.”  Hear what Jesus taught about the kingdom of God and how you, today, can be prepared for the difficult times ahead and to stand before the Son of Man.  We will study this book at a slower rate with 1 lesson every 2 weeks.  This will require about 2-3 hours of homework per week.  This study will go through fall, winter and spring. 

Leaders: Carolyn Whitford, Vicki Tierney

Note: This is the second semester of the year long study that began last fall. New comers welcomed!

Prayer and Care

This team joins the large group time at Renovare and then spends time visiting and praying for those who are unable to get out and about. A vital and rewarding part of women’s ministries at Calvary.

Monday Evening Renovare Study

Take Courage – Bible Study of Haggai 

Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away?
Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them.

Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story.

In this 7-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime.

Leaders: Dianne Orth & Lila Manuell
When: Monday Evenings beginning January 23rd at 6:45 – 8:15pm
Location: Dianne Orth’s Home – 4609 Windslow Ln NW, Rochester
Bible Study Workbook: Take Courage – Bible Study of Haggai by Jennifer Rothschild
Note: This is a new group.  We are asking women to register even if they attended our Tuesday night study last fall.
