Women's Ministry

Our Passion

Women’s Ministry at Calvary Bible Church is designed for you to connect with other women, enjoy fellowship, grow in your faith, and use your God-given gifts to touch others. We consider the Word of God a priority, and this is a key foundation of our ministry. We are blessed with an incredible team of gifted Bible teachers who inspire and encourage us to grow in our walks with the Lord.

We encourage you to join one of our Bible studies, as well as to pick up a brochure at the Women’s Ministry table listing all of the many fun events we have planned for 2018/2019. Our goal is to equip, empower, and encourage women to live out God’s call to be joyful reflections of His love in every season of our life.


The name of the LORD is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are saved.
Proverbs 18:10

Tuesday Evening Edition

January 8 through March 20
7:00 PM to 8:15 PM

In our first Tuesday Evening Edition of 2019, Jan Burwitz will be leading us in a new Priscilla Shirer series entitled "Armor of God."

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you attacking your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, and your dreams. But God has a battle plan intended to help us arm ourselves so that we won’t be pushed around and caught off guard. Join us as we learn how we can develop an action plan and dress for victory!

Evening Edition is a wonderful opportunity for those women who are unable to attend a daytime study. If your days are full, consider reserving a night to be encouraged, refreshed, and challenged in your spiritual journey.

Note: Childcare is not available. Questions? Contact: Jan Burwitz (920) 731-9082 or Cami Czech (920) 540-3958

Wednesday Bible Study Breakouts

February 20 through March 20
9:25 AM to 11:00 AM

All women are welcome to join us on Wednesday Mornings for a time of encouragement and enrichment through studying God's word and forming lasting friendships. During this breakout session, we have three studies for you to choose from:

“Spiritual Parenting” (Erika Daye)
It’s not about perfect behavior; it’s about passionate hearts. It’s hard to remember that some days as a parent isn’t it? Remember that Jesus doesn’t call for good or “perfect” behavior from your children. God wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward Himself and others. Join us as Erika Daye leads a study and discussion on Spiritual Parenting by Michelle Anthony. Learn what it means to be the primary nurturers of your children’s faith and how to create environments that help that faith grow.

“Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?” (Erin McDowell and Bobbie Peterson)
From John, the disciple “whom Jesus loved,” comes the greatest and most powerful of all the gospels. We’ll take a look at who Jesus really was as seen through the eyes of a close friend. We’ll explore what it looks like to have Jesus as the true Temple, as the quencher of our thirst, as the calmer of our soul, as the one who brings healing and hope, and as the giver of life. As we come to a deeper understanding of who Jesus really is, it will change how we think and how we live.

“Sermon on the Mount” part 2 (Dana Smith)
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew’s gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus’ longest recorded message. This video series by Jen Wilkin challenges us to think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Come and learn from Jesus, just as His disciples did! Note: This is an interactive in-depth Bible study for those women who desire to dig deeper into God’s Word.

A children’s program is available for children from birth through kindergarten. Adult supervision is provided for older children who are home-schooled. The children's program is free but operates as a co-op. Moms utilizing childcare commit to helping in the childcare program each quarter.

Women's Retreat 2019

Heart to Heart Mentoring

Heart to Heart Mentoring is all about sharing life’s experiences and God’s faithfulness. It’s about women investing in the lives of each other through listening, encouragement, guidance, laughing, and loving.

Titus 2:3-5 speaks of a church where women learn from other women, “to teach what is good…so that God’s message will not be slandered.”

Mentoring doesn’t have to be complicated, just sharing life experience over a cup of coffee or tea with some Christ-centered conversation. It’s all about cultivating a friendship in the midst of what is already going on in our lives.

If you are interested in being in a mentoring relationship either as a mentor or as the person being mentored, contact Stacey Sparks at (920) 277-6539 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
