Foundation College Ministry

Foundation is a ministry to college students of Calvary Church of Santa Ana.  Calvary Church is a community where we CONNECT with God and others to GROW in our faith so we REACH Orange County and the world for Jesus Christ. Although we are a college ministry, we recognize that college is not the path for everyone, so if you’re 18-23 years old, then come join us for some fellowship!

Why Foundation?

We call ourselves Foundation because we desire to be a family who hold Jesus Christ to be the foundation for life.  This idea comes from Jesus’ words as recorded in Matthew 7:24-25.

"Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.  The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock." – Jesus Christ

20's-30's (Young Adults)

young adults

Young Adults at Calvary, is a community of singles and marrieds, ages 22 - 32, who encourage one another by studying God's Word and walking through life together.
*Also, join our Facebook Group : “Calvary 20's-30's"

The Apostle Paul’s words in the Bible from Philippians 1:27 are a great encouragement to us: “Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.”

20-30's Gatherings

We gather on a weekly basis in a couple of different formats:
#1 – Large Group Gathering
Sundays at 11:00am
Main Calvary Church Worship Center

Join 700-900 people each Sunday morning for a time of worship through music, a biblical message from our Teaching Team (Pastors David Mitchell, Eric Wakeling, Matt Davis and Matt Doan) and a time of response where you can take communion, pray with our prayer team and/or give financially.

Our Young Adult group typically sits together on the right hand side of the Worship Center during the 11:00am service.

After the service, stop by Connection Point in the Lobby to learn more about Young Adults and getting plugged in at Calvary.

#2 - 20's-30's LifeGroups 

"FOUNDATION" | Thursdays at 7:00 pm | Underground (C Building)
College aged students ages 18-22. Join us for a large group gathering of worship, message time, and fellowship.  

To learn more about the Calvary Church Young Adults Ministry, contact the College and Young Adults Pastor, Tim Nellis at or at 714.550.2391.

 

IMPACT

impact

Calvary's IMPACT Ministry is a forum for fellowship, aimed at those 50-65, but age is not the key factor. It's an opportunity to get connected and start building closer relationships among the adults at Calvary.

While IMPACT is not a LifeGroup, our hope is that you can explore the possibility of taking a next step and joining a LifeGroup of someone you meet at an IMPACT event.

There is usually one IMPACT event each month. Some are joint events with SAM (Senior Adult Ministries), but most are independent.

Upcoming Events:

Praying for Your Grandchildren
2nd Sunday of Each Month · 12:30 pm · N-1
Benefit from a greater vision of the role you have with your grandchildren. Join us on the second Sunday of each month at 12:30 pm in Room N-1. Please bring your own lunch.

SAM

Monthly Dinners

Adults of all ages are welcome to join us for an enjoyable evening of delicious dining, melodious music and a guest speaker - all for only $15 per person! 

These events take place on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall (Except for Aug and Dec).  Tickets are available in the patio Sunday mornings prior to the dinner. Come join us for food, fellowship, and faith building. We look forward to meeting you!
