…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.
Thriving in Babylon by Larry Osborne
Wednesdays at 7pm
Sanctuary, Hazel Dell Campus
These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected, it seems as if they're attacked on every front. It's all happened at warp speed, leaving many of us spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment? And is there any hope for the next generation?
In this five-week series, you will be introduced to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be fall apart. This man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived, but thrived.
