Life Connect Groups
At New Life At Calvary, we believe the key to a healthy spiritual life for a believer is to to belong to a small group which studies the Word of God together, prays for each other, and cares for the needs of each other. Life-sharinng provides an opportunity for spiritual growth to take place in a nourishing community. Most of our classes are taught by our Lay Pastors, but others are taught by leaders in the church.
What Are Life Connect Groups?
Life Connect Groups: The Life Connect Groups range in size from 6 to about 17 people. They provide an opportunity to build friendships with others while studying the word of God together. Some Life Connect Groups meet at the church, and others meet in homes. Sometimes videos are used in the class and can be watched on your computer, smart phone, or smart tv on the internet through Right Now Media. All participants will be given a free Right Now Media Account. Life Connect Groups meet at various times and in various locations. Our goal is to reproduce our groups, so if you would like to have a group meet in your home, we can send a lay pastor to guide you for six weeks, and then allow you to continue to lead the group in the future. Each six week study will consist of various topics depending on the time and location. There is a two week break in between series. Some adjustments are made for holiday schedules.. A person does not have to attend our church to be a part of a Life Connect Group. You may join a group in the middle of a session if you like.

THE SACRED ECHO: WHY IS PRAYER SO MYSTERIOUS?
Taught By Marvin Rogers & Andrea Billups Videos By Margaret Feinberrg
When we pray, does God answer?
Was that God's voice, or my own?
When God really wants to get your attention, he doesn't just say something once, he echoes. He speaks through a Sunday sermon, a chance conversation with a friend the next day, and even a random email. The same theme, idea, impression, or lesson will repeat itself in surprising and unexpected ways until you realize that maybe, just maybe, God is at work. As God's voice echoes to us, we are invited to echo back to him in prayer.
In each of the six Bible study sessions, Margaret Feinberg provides Biblical and practical teaching that will offer a fresh perspective on our interactions with God through prayer. Each session also includes interviews with people who share their personal times when God was silent and times when God was at work.
Class will be led by Marvin Rogers And Andrea Billups On Mondays at 6pm

SPIRITUAL SIMPLICITY Teaching by Pastor Toby
Videos By Chip Ingram
If You Crave Simplicity...
...And yearn for peace and calm, this group study is for you. Through Biblical teaching and practical insights, Chip Ingram goes beyond so-called quick fixes. This series speaks to men and women who know what they need to do, want desperately to do it, but find it next to impossible to break free of the "too many good and important things" that flood their lives.
The thesis is shockingly simple: spiritual simplicity can only occur when we do less and love more. The time-tested Biblical principles explored in this study fly in the face of long checklists designed to decrease stress and increase productivity. Instead, it will help you experience a shift from complex to simple, from hurried to peaceful, from "never enough time" to "time enough for those you love." Lasting change is within your reach! Take the steps today to learn how to run the race of life at a different, more meaningful speed by focusing on what matters most: LOVE.

THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS With Walter & Katy Glenn
VIDEO BY J.D. Greear
Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.
Pastor and author J.D. Greear walks through the powerful words of Paul. In 9 sessions, J.D. digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the gospel. If the people of your city, of your school, of your family are going to hear the gospel, it's going to be from your mouth. Encounter Ephesians, and get swept up into the story of Jesus.

The Book Of Philippians With Sylvia Fields. Videos by Jo Saxton
The life Jesus invites us into when we follow him is one of sacrifice. But does sacrificial living mean the Christian life should be riddled with sorrow? Paul answers that question in his letter to the Philippians with a resounding no. Paul, and the Philippians with him, lived joyfully in the midst of persecution, prison, and poverty.
In this six-session series, Jo Saxton takes us through Philippians to encourage us to follow Jesus no matter what life throws at us. Through Paul's words and example, learn how joy and sacrifice can go hand-in-hand.
