Calvin’s Small Group ministry offers something for everyone regardless of where you are in your faith journey. It is designed to stretch people spiritually. Below is the current list of active groups. For information on any of them, please contact the church office.
The Devotional Group
This is a group for those seeking to go deeper in their faith journey. It prayerfully studies and discusses classics of the Christian spiritual life, including the books by Corrie Ten Boom, Catherine Marshall, Richard Foster, Thomas Kelly and many more. There is a Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall Group. It meets Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. at Calvin Church or via Zoom.
Finding God Within
This group meets for Centering Prayer via Zoom on Wednesdays from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Participants may join in as their schedules allow. Centering Prayer is a form of meditation in which one practices being still and quiet for 20 minutes. This can be done individually, however, group centering prayer is yet another powerful instrument in experiencing a prayer-filled community.

This spiritual growth group for men meets at every Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. in the dining area at the Marriott North in Cranberry Township or via Zoom. They explore ways to connect faith practically in work, family, and other areas of life.

The Beth Moore Group
This group meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month beginning in September. They use the Beth Moore Bible Studies to learn more about the Bible. Beth Moore is a charismatic biblical teacher whose focus is teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word.

Committees and Session
We treat our session (church board) and committees as small groups. Each meeting begins with 30 minutes of prayer and study. The focus is to make sure that our leaders are also growing spiritually, which enables them to lead others into spiritual growth.
