…to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:12-13
At Calvary, we believe we are called to help all people become mature followers of Christ. Whether you are new to your faith or actively maturing in your faith, we want to equip you to take your next step in your walk with God through opportunities to learn and grow.

Starting Point is just that: a point for those new to Calvary to start to learn more about the life God created for them and how we live that out at Calvary Church. This four-week class will help you know more about God, Calvary Church, and your purpose as well as help you understand how those three things work together to help you fulfill God's plan for your life. We encourage everyone to attend Starting Point no matter how long you have been attending Calvary.

The Gospel of Mark by Francis Chan
Wednesdays at 7pm
Community Room, Hazel Dell Campus
The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus's journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle, only a few stick by the suffering Savior on the road of discipleship.
In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark and asks, "Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?"
A study guide that will follow along with this series is available for purchase. If you are interested in buying a copy, please email CalvaryChurch@CalvarySpringfield.org.
40 Days of Prayer by Rick Warren
Wednesdays at 7pm
Sanctuary, Hazel Dell Campus
Life doesn't always go as planned. At some point, you'll face impossible obstacles and barries — situations that make you think there's no way this is going to work out, but God wants to help you handle uncertainty when it comes your way. He is ready and willing to give you breakthrough, but it doesn't just happen spontaneously; breakthrough happens when you seek them, and the way you seek them is through prayer.
Throughout the 40 Days of Prayer series, you will learn how to cultivate a powerful prayer life and experience breakthrough in your relationship challenges, financial difficulties, bad habits, health crisis, and many other areas of your life.
A workbook that includes daily prayer prompts, space for weekly sermon notes, and suggestions for further study that will follow along with this series is available for purchase. If you are interested in purchasing this workbook, please email CalvaryChurch@CalvarySpringfield.org.

As believers, we are called to be good stewards of God's provision, but so many of us do not fully understand what that means. Often times, we do not understand our own financial situation or baseline so we make decisions off of poor information with the best motives. Because of this, we are not able to live into the potential that God desires for us.
