Calvary Community Church is a Gospel-centered community. At Calvary we exist to make more and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ through connecting with people, growing in the Gospel, and serving others for the glory of God and our abundant joy. Our Women’s Ministries seeks to foster this through Bible studies, opportunities in prayer, and special groups for moms, quilters, and fitness. Women's Ministries also plans several social events throughout the year that encourage fun and fellowship.
If you have questions about, or would like to get involved with the Women's Ministry at Calvary, please contact Kathy Schendzielos at 320-654-0125.

God Are You There?
Every Tuesday starting January 14, 2014 until April 15, 2014
Time: 6:45pm – 8:45pm
Popular teacher and speaker Kay Arthur has developed a study specifically for those who are unfamiliar with the Bible. It introduces readers not only to God's Word but to the God of the Word.
In this exciting study, Kay Arthur takes readers by the hand, gently leading them through the Gospel of John and introducing the inductive method of study. Readers will come away with solid, tested Bible study methods and an understanding of who God is and how to know Him better.
God, Are You There? is a life-changing adventure into a beloved gospel. It's easy to use--a "quick-start" program for anyone new to the truths of God's Word or for a group needing just the right number of lessons.

Hope & Healing For Hurting Women
You Are Not Alone...
- "My husband is involved in sexual sin."
When you discover your husband's sexual betrayal, whether it involves affairs, pornography, prostitutes, lust, or any other sexual sin, the pain is unbearable.
The emotional, physical and spiritual attachment a married couple share creates a deep bond.
When the bond is broken, your heart is broken.
- Don't let shame, fear, or insecurity keep you from reaching out for help.
- Don't try to make it through this on your own. You've been deeply hurt and need other women to express your pain to; women who can provide support and comfort, and pray with you.
Fact: In every survery taken, at least 50% of the men in "The Church" have a problem with porn or sex addiction. This means that 50% of the wives in the church will at some point (when their husband's struggle comes to light) have to deal with the pain of their spouse's adultery.
- "Where can I get help?"
There is individual and group support from women who understand. They have walked a similar journey.
- "Tell me about this support group."
The support group has been in existence since 2006. It is based on scripture that promises God is present and healing is offered. It is strictly confidential. It is an amazing place to feel supported and loved.
You are not alone....
BEING THERE FOR EACH OTHER
HE (God) comes along side us when we go through hard times and before you know it...
HE brings us along side someone else who is going through hard times...
SO that we can be there for that person, just as God was, and is, there for us.
