Following Jesus is called, by one theologian, a long obedience. It is nearly impossible to be a mature disciple of Jesus and not be deeply rooted in community.
Often when we think of community, we think solely of attending Sunday mornings. While gathering together on Sundays to celebrate and remember the goodness of Jesus is essential, without a small community of like-minded believers meeting together, we will never embody what we are learning.
Connect Groups are the foundation of our community at Calvary. It is a small group designed to meet with other Christians, build friendships, practice accountability and mature as an apprentice of Jesus. Connect Groups can be as small as 4 and as large as 12. Connect Groups are sermon-based groups. These groups offically launch 3-4 times a year, meet for 8-12 weeks and then take a break until the next launch. Some groups continue meeting weekly, while others take the break.
