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
Elevation Service, Sunday’s 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 Elevation Teaching Team (Pastors David Mitchell, Eric Wakeling, Matt Davis and Matt Doan) and a time of optional 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 Elevation service.

After the service come find Connections/Young Adult Pastor, Tim Nellis, at Connection Point Central 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.




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:

Game Night
Monday, April 24 · 6:30 pm · W-209 

Young adults through senior adults, join together for some fun and games.

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. 
*Note: During the month of May, Praying for Your Grandchildren will take place on May 7 because of Mother's Day.

Senior Adult Ministry


We call ourselves SAM and we have a goal, based on the verse in the Bible that encourages us to "...become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world." (Philippians 2:15)

Monthly Dinners
Adults of all ages are welcome to join us. We meet every month, except August and December, for an enjoyable evening of delicious dining, melodious music and a guest speaker are available for your enjoyment and edification - and at the reasonable rate of $15 per person! 

These events take place on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  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!
