What is a LifeGroup?
LifeGroups are the primary place, beyond Sunday worship, where we actively engage in the life and purpose of our church: to connect, grow, and reach. LifeGroups are ongoing small group communities that gather together throughout the week to CONNECT in a smaller setting, GROW together in our faith, and REACH out together to our community.
Calvary has over 75 adult LifeGroups meeting at different times and places throughout the week. (There are also LifeGroups within all of our Children and Student Ministries.) Look through the list below to get an idea of the types of groups we offer.
Questions? Contact our LifeGroups Pastor Robert Carter at
or at 714-550-2332. You can also find out more about LifeGroups by visiting Connection Point in the Lobby on Sundays.
