The purpose of the Ladies’ Ministry of Calvary Baptist Church is to minister to the spiritual needs of women by helping them grow into a deeper relationship with God, equip them to minister to each other and to our church, connecting and getting to know each other through fellowship and serving together, and develop creative and effective outreach into their communities.

Bible Studies

These day and evening Bible Studies meet in various homes throughout the community. They are designed for spiritual growth through the study of God's Word as well as encouragement and fellowship through the establishment of relationships.

Book Club

Calvary Ladies’ Book Club welcomes any lady who loves to read and share what they’ve read with others. We have many wonderful Christian books to choose from, from biographies, to classics, to fiction, to helpful books, particularly for women. There are two requirements to join the club: Read the book and come to the meetings.

G.i.G.L - Growing in God's Love

The G.i.G.L. ministry of Calvary Baptist Church strives to minister to mothers of young children (infant to 6th grade) by providing an opportunity to fellowship and build friendships with other moms while growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ.


Heart-to-Heart is an informal ministry which seeks to develop important friendships between older and younger women based on a love for God and a desire to fulfill the Titus 2 mandate of older women teaching younger women. Heart to Heart is primarily a ministry of encouragement. It is not necessarily a discipleship program, nor is this an in-depth counseling service, but rather a ministry which promotes friendship for support, council, and guidance with a woman who has walked longer in the faith.

Missionary Quilting

Each month ladies meet at a host’s home to quilt for missionaries. If you want to learn or have the skills to quilt, please come for a time of fellowship and quilting for a missionary family.

Outside the Box

This is one of our newest ministries created to bring women out of their box and into creation. There will be seasonal activities with a wide range of events including hiking, canoeing, biking, camping, etc. A time away from all that bogs us down and reflect on God’s beautiful creation.

Creative Connections

Creative Connections is a new name for Scrap-n-Chat which provides a time for all ages of girls and women to enjoy putting those precious memories God has given us into albums that will be treasured for years to come. We are now introducing a few other crafts to learn or do.


Caring-to-Share is a combination of the Shut-In and Card ministry. This is a ministry where you can serve others. Won’t you please care to share some time and visit with someone who is not able to get out very often or not able to come to church on a regular basis? Caring-to-Share is also about sending cards for Get Well, Sympathy, New Babies, and College Birthdays. This is a great way to make someone feel special.
