We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.

Gospel Conversations

The Bible compels us to go and share the gospel with those who don’t know. The command is simple, but it can often feel uncomfortable for Christians to have open conversations about God in their spheres of influence. We ask questions like:

What is the gospel, exactly? How can I share my story with my neighbor, friend, or family member? How do I even enter into the conversation without it being awkward?”

To help us overcome these mental hurdles, we want provide practical advice, and help you become more comfortable in starting and continuing Gospel conversations with people in your various spheres of influence

Leaders: Carrie Ball, Jim Sexton, Evelyn Sexton
Start Date: January 24
Time: Wednesdays, 6:00 PM
Location: Room 254

How to Study the Bible

Are you new to studying Scripture or want to grow in the “how” of reading the Bible? Our desire is for you to experience the transformational power of God’s Word.

Discovering and Using Your Gifts

When you became a Christian, God gave you salvation and the hope of eternity in heaven. He also gave you purpose and significance in your life right now. He has given each of us the opportunity to live out the story of God and make a real difference in someone’s life. When you serve others in Jesus’ name, that’s called ministry.

“Isn’t ministry just for people with seminary degrees?” “I don’t even know how to figure out what God is calling me to do with my life.” “I know my gifts, but now what?” At Calvary, we believe that every member of our church has gifts, passions and stories that God wants us to discover and use. This is what this class is all about.

In this class, you will learn how God uses your Spiritual Gifts, your Heart (passions), your Abilities, Personality, and Experiences to SHAPE you for the ministry He is calling you to.

Leaders: Alanna Sellinger, Will Bomar
Start Date: March 21
Time: Wednesdays, 6:00 PM
Location: Room 252

In the end, we want to equip, inspire and challenge you to live with an eternal mindset by embracing a life of stewardship and generosity.
