What are Connect Groups?
Our Vision is to see a congregation connected and discipled through an expanded ministry of small groups, or connect groups. Each of these meet regularly to pray together, learn from God's Word and encourage each other as we walk through life together. Some groups do this through discussing the sermon while others may go through a devotional book together. Each group has its own personality and rhythms, but all love Jesus and each other!

We would love to have you join us
Don and Pam
Prior to COVID-19 we started with a pizza dinner and we were meeting every other Friday evening at 6 p.m. We shift for a short time to Tuesdays on Zoom. We don’t have any pets, so we’re allergy friendly and children are welcome.
Tom and Yvonne
A group of adult singles and couples led by Tom and Yvonne Shorb. The group typically meets at 6 pm on the second and fourth Sunday of the month either on ZOOM or in the Coopersburg area. Currently the group uses the Pastor’s sermon and text as the basis of expanded study and application to our lives.
Dan and Leanne
We gather every other week at our home in Coopersburg. We generally share a simple dinner/dessert, have prayer time, catch up and have a 30/40 min lesson. We have done some community service together, and would like to expand on that. We are a casual group, but care deeply about each other and our families and our Calvary family. In June 2020 we started lessons on Jesus’s teachings, and sharing which of Jesus’s teachings have impacted our lives the most, and why.
Terry and Julie
We rotate between some of our members homes and the member who is hosting the meeting leads the meeting. We generally meet on Friday evenings every other week and our meetings are energizing and spiritually fulfilling. We prefer pursuing lessons delivered in a video format and follow with lively question and answer sessions. In the past we have been involved in a few activities including sponsoring a child in need and providing and serving meals at the Allentown Rescue Mission. During the early phases of COVID-19 we were able to hold Zoom meetings to communicate with one another as an attempt to maintain our spiritual relationships and have since moved to outdoor meetings (when the weather was warm enough) and are now back to indoor meetings as members feel comfortable.
