Support Groups

A Support Group is an Open Ended, Felt Need Based group of like minded people who are all experiencing a similar life struggle.

The purpose of a support group is to receive Support, Prayer, Encouragement and Accountability in a safe, confidential, Christ-centered, biblically based environment.

All of our groups have a trained facilitator equipped to lead with a passion for helping people. 

Here are the support groups that are already ongoing (more info below):

Support Group Leaders

Have you endured a struggle and experienced God’s healing and hope?

Do you have a desire to offer that same hope and healing to others who have experienced a similar struggle?

Calvary currently has several support groups to help people through times of trial and difficulties in life. Below, you will see a list of current groups as well as groups we are hoping to begin soon if leadership is found to help oversee them. Below are opportunities to come learn more and become equipped to help others.

Here are a few of the groups we need leaders for:

ADD Parents and Adults
Depression and Anxiety
Families and Friends of Those with Mental Illness
Hope for the Separated Woman/Man
Infertility Support Group
Post-abortion Support Group
Support for Caregivers

Widows/Widowers Support Ministry

Twice a year a White Rose Luncheon is held in the Fireside Room for widows and widowers who have experienced the same kind of loss to enjoy fellowship, support, singing, sharing and food.

This luncheon is open to widows and widowers of all ages. Many friends are made and much comfort plus support is given to each other. It is always very upbeat!
