Bible Study Fellowship (BSF)
Calvary hosts a Bible Study Fellowship class for women on Monday nights from September through May. BSF is an in-depth, interdenominational Bible study that helps people know God and further equips them to effectively serve the Church throughout the world. Women meet in small discussion groups for a portion of the morning and then all attend a lecture given by a teaching leader. Find out more information about BSF at BSF International, or contact the BSF class coordinator by e-mail.
Circles are groups of women who meet monthly September through June. New members are always welcome! For a complete listing of circles, meeting times, places, and a contact for each circle, contact Holly McFarland by e-mail or at 763.231.2981.
Form meaningful relationships with other believing women who can support and encourage you in your walk with Christ and life situations. Many existing groups like to add new members, or leadership training is available for those who wish to start a new small group. More>>
