Women want social outlets and support during all stages of life. Calvary Church offers places to befriend other Moms, and many Bible studies to help all women grow in faith. Whether you have a favorite Bible study writer or prefer video teaching, there are study options for you. (Of course you’re ultimately a fan of Jesus… those teachers are just His messengers.)

White Bear Campus / Room 116
No Bible Study April 22, May 6 or May 27 (Memorial Day).
Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.
Women’s Fall Retreat

Children’s Ministry Pastor
Find your support for parenting beyond preschool. Moms Connect encourages women in parenting kids through school years and beyond. Mentor Moms are sprinkled throughout the discussion groups to help with perspective on parenting as they bring the wisdom that comes with experience. This group is open to women outside of Calvary Church as well!
The morning is usually structured with small group discussion time, and large group learning via video, panel discussion, or live teaching. Sometimes the morning focus is a community service project. The point is to connect with other mothers and grow in community in a variety of ways. And of course there will be food—because where there are women, there will be treats!
Study for 2018-2019
This year, we will shape our meetings around a video series called “Make it Count” by Karen Stubbs. Every one of us enters motherhood looking for guarantees. Use this product and you’ll get these results. Follow this approach to discipline and change that behavior. But, any mom will also acknowledge, there are no guarantees in life! Even if we do everything “right” it doesn’t mean our children will turn out the way we want. Make it Count will help us wrestle with this tension and ultimately encourage us to focus on the things we can control, not on the things we can’t. You’ll come away encouraged and equipped for this crazy, wonderful journey of motherhood! Get to know Karen by watching this.
If interested in joining the study this fall, contact the Moms Connect leadership team here.
Every other Wednesday (January 9-May 22) / 9:30-11:30am / White Bear Campus
Done for this school year! Check back in August for 2019-2020 dates.
MOTHERS OF PRESCHOOLERS
Mother’s of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a national program for moms and their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Moms visit and get helpful tips for navigating parenthood from a variety of guest speakers and gain essential skills for making the most of the preschool years. In our MOPPETS program, kids are cared for by attentive volunteers, and learn about God through Bible-focused curriculum.
Unfortunately, MOPS 2018-2019 is full at this time, and we aren’t able to accept any more registrations. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please fill out the registration form. Feel free to contact us if you have questions, and thank you for your interest in MOPS at Calvary!
Every other Wednesday (January 2-May 15) / 9:30-11:30am / White Bear Campus
