Calvary Abide: Connecting Women with Christ, Community and their Calling through Bible Study

Jesus said …If you abide in My Word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. [John 8:31-32 AMP]

During the Fall and Winter semesters Calvary offers multiple women’s Bible study options on one day, in one place each semester. Begin your morning or evening with:

  • Worship that focuses your busy heart and mind
  • Friendship with women from across the Calvary Gatherings, and beyond
  • Flexibility to choose a Bible study and invite friends who may prefer to join a    different one, yet you can attend together

Abide: a place to settle, a call to dwell in Him.


Our spring dates are :  Feb 1, 8, 15, 22, March 1, 15, 22, April 5, 12, 19, 26.  No meetings on March 8th nor 29th.

THEME: Timeless Stories of Jesus: Hope and Healing for Every Woman
The stories of Jesus, as told by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, are still speaking into the challenges, relationships and brokenness that women face today.  Jesus came to live among us in order to lavishly infuse our circumstances with his love and life. Heart-to-Heart will journey through the gospel books, Luke and John during the 2018 Spring Abide season. Women will learn from the words and ways of Jesus as he invades hearts and lives with hope and healing. Audio recordings of the teachings from the fall session, covering Matthew and Mark, can be found HERE.


THEME:  No Other Gods: The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ by Kelly Minter
Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you're missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart's ultimate treasure.  In this study, learn to identify the functional gods you may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell. As you dethrone your modern-day idols, you'll be set free for the deeper, more abundant life Jesus came to give you—discovering that Jesus can do what no other god can.  A short introduction about the study by Kelly can be found HERE.
