Community Groups


Community Groups are our way of cultivating relationships, spiritual growth, and participating in mission together. They work alongside and supplement the things God uniquely does in our congregational gatherings. Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa hosts diverse types of medium and small community groups, for diverse kinds of people, in diverse situations in life.
