The purpose of our Women’s Ministry is to glorify God through meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of women at Calvary Baptist Church and within our community.
This ministry is designed to nurture women to grow in their faith in Christ, to develop and strengthen friendships with other women, and to provide opportunities to serve and reach our community for Christ.
It is our desire to Encourage women to know and follow Christ daily, to Equip them to grow in their relationship with Christ and to Empower them to serve and reach others for Christ, both locally and globally. Calvary Women’s Ministry seeks to serve and support women in all walks of life. Whether in a meaningful Bible study, a planned mission project, or special ministry event, luncheon, or conference, there is a place for you. We invite you to find a place of service and connect with this community of women.

Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” In Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is for sinners and sufferers today. There’s also a 14-day Gentle and Lowly podcast devotional available on Amazon as a companion to the book.
Learn about the different leadership teams within Calvary Women’s Ministry and sign up to be part of a team.
Bible Study/Discipleship Team
Bible Study/Discipleship Team: This team helps encourage and facilitate women getting into God’s Word. They look for new studies and leaders within the church and the community that might be of interest. This team evaluates if there is interest for new studies and how those might be formed throughout the year. They also encourage members to invite friends and work with the Media team to communicate how others can join us in studying God’s Word.
This team encourages all women of Calvary to get involved not only in Women’s ministry but in the life of the church. It includes sending cards, reaching out in various ways and just being aware of needs in the congregation and to encourage them whatever their current circumstance. They welcome new members and help them find a place to get involved and just be a friendly face. This team works with various committees and Sunday school classes throughout the church to provide support to those groups and also provide creative engagement opportunities for all Calvary women.
This team is responsible for planning events that engage the women of Calvary of all ages, college through LOGOS. They plan events, retreats, or gatherings that can bring ladies together and engage them in the life of the church. This team brainstorms activities that gather both inside and outside of the church campus, and coordinate with the other Women’s Ministry teams and church wide events to be cognizant of the limited time ladies have in their busy lives.
This team works to communicate the Women’s Ministry events to all women of Calvary via the support staff and, when appropriate, to the community using social media, print and other tools available. They follow Calvary’s media guidelines. This team strives to use various and creative means to get the attention of women to encourage participation in the planned activities both of the Women’s ministry, and of the church body.
This team works in conjunction with the church Missions team to encourage the involvement of all women of Calvary in mission projects and trips. They also work with the other Women’s Ministry teams in hopes that a mission activity can be incorporated with other activities such as fellowship and encouragement. The Missions team works closely with Brian, our Minster to the Community, to learn specific needs and how we can be of service.
Prayer/Spiritual Development Team
This team is committed to making prayer a priority. They pray for specific areas of Women’s Ministry and the church. They work with the Calvary Prayer team to promote prayer and spiritual development in each Calvary member and look to share new tools such as apps, books, podcasts, music or other ideas through social media and other forms of communication to enrich the spiritual life of women of all ages with busy lives.
