Life Groups

Learn more about our life group options here!


Life Groups at Calvary exist to help you Love God. Love Others. #LoveNoVA.

All Life Groups have four major functions:

  • fellowship together
  • Utilize Scripture
  • Pray for each other
  • Serve together.

Life Groups are made up of a smaller group of individuals, have a place and way to meet regularly, are guided by a facilitator committed to being spiritually and emotionally sound, and as a ministry of Calvary Church are accountable to church leadership and vision.

While all groups share the above qualities, each group develops its own style. Here is a list of open groups (actively meeting and have space for new participants) and a bit about each:
