Fall Groups 09

  1. 1. Y ou can make Calvary smaller... and bigger...dynamic worship, preaching and teaching is what we’ve come to expect at Calvary on Sunday mornings. While enjoying the large weekly celebration service, we also need to be a part of a meaningful network of friends. In a hurried and busy world, that’s often easier to say than to do. That’s why Calvary provides Life groups to help you Connect, Grow, Serve and Share. Add people to your life! Join a group that wants to share their lives and what God is doing in them. And if you are a follower of Christ, consider starting a group: any interest you have can become a way to connect to each other and God. Start a group that walks for exer- cise, trains dogs, plays tennis or bocce ball. Since Life Groups are started by people based on their interests and available time, we have groups that meet during the week, on the weekends, at daytime and at night. We have groups that meet at Calvary and some that meet in homes. If you have further questions about our small group system or an idea for a group you’d like to lead in the future, contact Jeff Dyer at 302-697-7776 x102 or Our groups run on a semester system, but you are welcome to join at any time unless otherwise noted. Simply contact the group leader to join, get more information or confirm the meeting time & location. Current semester: September 15
