Our Summer Weave Options

As we are now in Phase 2 of our Calvary re-opening plan, we are offering women’s gatherings and studies that follow these guidelines from our Calvary Leadership.

Our gatherings will be meeting mostly in host home’s backyards.  We are asking our hosts to manage their group’s size and are recommending a 10 person limit. Please pre-register for the gatherings. The groups will be formed on a first come first serve basis. So register as soon as you can.

The Gospel comes with a House Key by Rosaria Butterfield

Gospel comes with a house keyWhat did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.
