GOD'S WISDOM FOR A VIBRANT FAITH. Just as Jesus’ own disciples were learners and students of his teaching, we are called today as Christians to be students of Jesus’ teaching and of God’s Word. CalvaryEd exists to help the members and attenders of Calvary Memorial Church grow in their knowledge of Jesus and Christianity through the Bible and theology.

CalvaryEd offers classes, events, and fellowships for helping members grow in their faith. These programs include Calvary Core, Calvary Talks, and Calvary Fellowships.

We use these gatherings to share updates and introduce you to the many ways you can get connected at Calvary, all while enjoying a delicious meal.

If you are new to Calvary, there is no cost for your meal—lunch is on us. For regular attenders, the cost is $5/per person or $15/per family.

How should we read the Bible? Does God speak to us today through His Word? How does the authority of scripture relate to modern questions? Most Christians know that they ought to believe and trust the Bible, but questions remain about how to approach and think about the Bible today. Others among us find the Bible intimidating and overwhelming and don’t know where to start when we read God’s Word.

Join us for our first Calvary Core class, Scripture: Wisdom from God’s Word. In this class we will explore questions related to the nature of the Bible, its authority and interpretation, its overall story, and how to access the riches of God’s Word for our own lives today.
