Women's Ministry

By Design

God designed us to be in relationship with other people. He desires for us to live in a spiritual community in which we learn together and grow together. That’s what makes this Women's ministry such a special ministry of Calvary Evangelical Baptist Church.


We offer women several opportunities to grow spiritually and to connect with other women. Various activities such as Bible studies, women’s retreats, and special events happen each week and throughout the year.

If you’re a woman living in the Hampton Roads area and want to get connected with other women who love the Lord, then join us for Bible study or an event.
