Women want social outlets and support during all stages of life. Calvary Church offers places to befriend other Moms, and many Bible studies to help all women grow in faith. Whether you have a favorite Bible study writer or prefer video teaching, there are study options for you. (Of course you’re ultimately a fan of Jesus… those teachers are just his messengers.)
God is on the move.
Yes, things will fall apart, and yes, things will shut down, but our God cannot be stopped.
And we don’t want to miss any part of that.
His kingdom is coming. We want His will to be done on this earth as it is in heaven and our
heart and prayer is that “on earth as it is in heaven” starts with us.
And we would stop wondering if it is possible to change the world. It’s possible.
This year, at IF:Gathering 2021, we are going to talk about how we do that.
The theme for those two days is “Even If.”
Even if the worst happens, we don’t lose hope.
Come join us as we remember that together.

Watch for new information to come.
Women at the Well
Like the woman at the well, women want to gather and draw closer to God and to each other. This new group is for women in all stages of life. Women at the Well will meet twice a month and in-person. You can sign up for one session at a time.
The cost covers food and resources. We want you to come to the well to gather and enjoy discussion with other women regardless of having read the book.
The NEW session will start March 17. We will be taking a break for IF:Gathering and then will start back with Margaret Feinberg’s Fight Back with Joy.
Wednesdays / White Bear Campus
March 17-May 12 / 7-8:30pm
Meet March 17 & 31, April 14 & 28, and May 12
Fight Back with Joy
When study author Margaret Feinberg learned she had cancer, she knew she would need great strength to overcome it. She believed the weapon she selected for the battle would change everything. And she decided that weapon would be joy. Margaret shares her journey of using joy to fight fear, regret, and pain.
Through months of treatment, Margaret discovered that joy is a far more dynamic force than most of us realize. It has the power to reignite our passion for laughter and celebration. It can free us to rise above endless demands as we become more content and thankful. It can change unchangeable circumstances and bring a peace rooted in the remarkable love of God.
Whatever you face today, discover with Margaret how to embrace a way of living that’s deeper and fuller than you’ve ever known—a life radiant with joy.

Mother’s of Preschoolers
Mother’s of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a national program for moms and their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Moms visit and get helpful tips for navigating parenthood from a variety of guest speakers and gain essential skills for making the most of the preschool years. Currently on hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions—in our MOPPETS program kids are cared for by attentive volunteers, and learn about God through a Bible-focused curriculum.
MOPS has completed registrations for the 2020-21 school year. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please fill out the registration form. Feel free to contact us if you have questions, and thank you for your interest in MOPS at Calvary Church.
FOR SPRING 2021
In-person meetings have been moved to evenings this fall, and no child care is provided. Leave the kiddos with Dad or a sitter and enjoy programs planned just for you and your stage of life.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT GATHERINGS
7–9pm / White Bear Campus
Your coordinators (listed below) will be sending you information on the special events through email and social media.

Find your support for parenting beyond preschool. Moms Connect encourages women in parenting kids through school years and beyond. Mentor Moms are sprinkled throughout the discussion groups to help with perspective on parenting as they bring the wisdom that comes with experience. This group is open to women outside of Calvary Church as well!
The morning is usually structured with small group discussion time, and large group learning via video, panel discussion, or live teaching. Sometimes the morning focus is a community service project. The point is to connect with other mothers and grow in a community in a variety of ways. And of course, there will be food—because where there are women, there will be treats.
Due to COVID19, Moms Connect is currently online.
8-8:45pm—Optional Small Group
Zoom link provided by those who register using link below.
We invite you to join us for an engaging large group gathering focused on a variety of topics with relevant parenting applications. The one-hour gathering will occur once a month on Wednesday evenings.
If you would like to discuss the content with other moms, we are also offering an optional small group conversation immediately following the large group. We will make every effort to form groups of women with established connections and relationships. Of course, new participants are always welcome!
This online format will never replace what happens at a typical Moms Connect meeting. We aim to bridge the gap until safe in-person gatherings resume.
If you would like to join us, REGISTER NOW, and you can reach out with any questions.
1-on-1 Mentoring—Growing in the Gospel Together

Mentoring comes in all shapes and sizes and Calvary has a variety of resources to equip you for a successful mentoring relationship.
