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.)
Fridays at the Park
We know you’re craving some adult conversation. And the kids just can’t get enough of time at the park. What to do, what to do? Head to playgroup at the park, and kill two birds with one stone! Every other Friday this summer, moms and kids gather at a different area park to play for a bit. Great way to connect in a low-key setting.

We know we are all called to live a life of obedience to God, but what does that look like? How can we live in a way pleasing to Him? You’ll journey with Abraham through this study of Genesis 12-25, and learn from his example of courageous faith.
Precept: John Part 1—The Word Became Flesh
September 19-November 28 / 9:30-11:30am
Roseville Campus / Room 113

September 19-December 5 / 9:30-11:30am
Roseville Campus / Atrium
Henry Blackaby’s book has been around a while, but it’s far from old and moldy. This vibrant study will help you develop a deeper relationship with the Creator of the Universe. You’ll learn to recognize God’s will for your life, and be challenged to live it out.
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!
Start the school year out with “Living Life Together: The Rhythm of Rest, Grace and Community” by author and speaker Shauna Niequist. Shauna is passionate about living life in community. During the video sessions, she walks through Scripture, challenging women to step out of isolation and fear and pursue relationships with other women that are rooted in rest, grace, and reconciliation. The video will journey with women who have found much-needed support in community, and we’ll discover why God designed and delights in relationships. Watch the trailer.

MOTHERS OF PRESCHOOLERS
Mother’s of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a national program for moms and their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

In our MOPPETS program, kids are cared for by attentive volunteers, and learn about God through Bible-focused curriculum.
Unfortunately, MOPS 2017-2018 is full at this time, and we aren’t able to accept any more registrations. If you would like to be added to the wait list, 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!
