Groups Banner page

At Calvary, we believe small groups are vital–vital to community and vital to spiritual growth. We believe that now more than ever. While the groups on this page are not currently meeting at our church facilities, many of them are still meeting in online platforms. If you are not currently part of a small group and would like to be, please email groups@calvarytuscaloosa.org and we will get you connected with a group that is meeting online.

Groups

We encourage you to visit multiple classes until you find the group that is just right for you! Questions? Send us an email at calvary@calvarytuscaloosa.org or give us a call at 205.758.0495.

We Over Me by Whitney Capps

It’s easy to get frustrated with the local church—we see the people in the pews up close, both their beauty and blemishes. But God has a purpose and a plan that He uniquely accomplishes in and through the church, and He wants you to be part of it. Challenge your perspective and embrace your part in helping the church fulfill its calling.

For married women 18-40, Led by Rachel Hollingshead 

Ephesians by Max Lucado

Max Lucado’s Life Lessons from Ephesians is a 12-session study on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. In this letter, he focuses on the church as the bride of Christ and speaks of Jesus dying for his bride and anticipating his Bride wearing his spotless gown. Key Themes: We have spiritual blessings through Christ; Each believer is gifted through the Spirit of God; Our faith should work its way into all of our relationships; Our spiritual strength comes from God through his Word and our faith.

Thursday Morning Growth Groups

Trustworthy by Lysa TerKeurst

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

For women, Led by Krissy Willoughby
