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. We define medium Community Groups as any formal community of the church group with more than 16 regular participants, NOT including our main all-congregation gatherings that take place on Sundays and Wednesday nights. We define small Community Groups as any formal community of the church of 15 participants or less, regardless of the meeting location (homes, etc.).
