Watch our most recent mid-week message here.
Using the Bible as our guide, we’ve developed some key classes to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and to live a more joyful and satisfying life.
The Connect Experience is the perfect starting point for anyone new to Calvary, anyone who recently made the decision to follow Jesus, or anyone looking to get plugged in at our church! It’s a place where you can ask questions, learn more about Jesus, meet some great people, and discover your place in the story here at Calvary!
As a participant of the Connect Experience, I loved getting to know all of the people around my table, learning about Calvary, and finding out how I can get in God’s story here at Calvary. I loved it so much that I later became a Table Host, so I could share my excitement with others. If anyone has not signed up for this experience yet, I highly recommend they do!—Danielle, Boynton Beach campus
ESSENTIALS OF THE FAITH
This class is for new believers, longtime Christians, and everyone in between! It explores the basics of Christianity through interactive teaching and discussion.
My wife and I took the Essentials class and found the teachings to be an invaluable resource for the Christian life. The instruction was perfect for new believers and people like myself who accepted Jesus eight years ago. We learned about the authenticity of the Bible and how it’s actually one big story. We also learned how the trinity is an unfathomable and yet unmistakable doctrine in Scripture. This class has made me a better Christian, a better disciple, and a better witness.—Scot, Fort Lauderdale campus
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY
This class is for those looking to become debt free, seeking to honor God with their money, or anyone looking to get the most out of their finances! FPU teaches you practical steps based on biblical principles on how you can make the right decisions with your money.
My husband and I took Financial Peace University when we first got married. We had no money and no savings. Seven months later, we had stability and we were closer than we had ever been in our lives to being debt free! Every day, we remind each other that “We need to live like no one else, so later we can LIVE like no one else!—Dan and Becky, Fort Lauderdale campus
ADVENTURES IN MARRIAGE
This class is designed for married couples at any stage, from newlyweds to those celebrating their golden anniversary. It will help you take your marriage to the next level by teaching you how to strengthen your skills in communication, conflict resolution, and emotional regulation.
Sometime last year, my wife and I were going through a rough week as a couple. We didn’t know how to resolve certain conflicts and that soon led to a lot of frustration and heated arguments. I remembered seeing an announcement at church service about Adventures in Marriage. We canceled everything we had planned for the weekend and instead signed up for the class. It was the best decision we could have made, as the class brought fresh hope to our lives. A few months later, another class followed. Our table leaders were a blessing to us, most especially to my wife. Her first language is Spanish so she sometimes has difficulty understanding some of the curriculum’s English terminology. Our table leaders were able to coach us in Spanish on some of the activities such as the Dialogue Guide and the Heart to Heart. What a blessing!—Class attendee
PARENTING: PASSING ON THE LEGACY OF FAITH
This class is for parents with children between the ages of four and eighteen. It teaches God’s perspective on raising a family by addressing topics like relationships, communication, honor, authority, discipline, life-skills, and training in godliness.
Distractions and negative influences on our children are at an all time high! This parenting class humbly reminded me that even after 17 years of parenting, there’s still room for much improvement. This course provided insightful, thought provoking, and practical ways I can be the best parent God has called me to be.—Todd, Fort Lauderdale campus
This class is for anyone who is looking to overcome past scars and painful trials. It is designed to help people understand the underlying motivation of their thoughts, words, and deeds, providing practical skills for overcoming the broken areas of life.
The Redemption class was a game-changer for me. It truly helped me realize the value and importance of the relationships in my life.—Richard, Fort Lauderdale campus
