Growth Groups

At Caledonia CRC, we believe growth happens in groups.  We are excited to offer a variety of opportunities for you to explore! Scroll through the list of group offerings below.

  • Diving Deeper/Drawing Near

    *NEW THIS FALL* 

    Inspired by the sermon series Bridges, this women's group seeks to grow deeper in our relationship with the Lord and closer to one another through the study of two books. "Deeper" by Dane Ortlund will encourage us to let go of our misconceptions of who Jesus is so we can understand who the Bible reveals Him to be and draw nearer to Him. With that firm foundation in place, "The Soul of Shame" by Curt Thompson, MD, will show us the ways Satan distorts our good relationships through the use of shame and how we can scorn that shame to build authentic, deep connections.
