Connect groups   On the last Wednesday night of each month, our Connect Group Leaders facilitate small group meetings (“Connect Groups”) in various members’ homes. They function as an extension of the main church into 7 different communities across the Chicagoland area for the purpose of fellowship, personal accountability and growth, and life application of the Biblical principles that Calvary upholds.  We want people to feel a connection to our church and its people outside the church walls.  Jesus said that all men would know that we are His disciples if we have love for one another.  Whether one is mourning, struggling, recovering, or rejoicing, we want each member to know that we genuinely care, and that they have a group of fellow believers to fellowship with and rely on.
