Life Group at Calvary
(Based on sermons from Sundays at 9am, 11am or 6pm)
Lena and I (Brenten writing) started attending Calvary Monterey in 1997. We've served in many small groups over the years between missionary journies (college and career, home fellowships, missions fellowship, worship team, Calvary Kids) and for the last 2 years, we have led Life Groups in the Spring and Fall quarters.
We love Calvary's vision and mission statement "Vision: Jesus Famous. Mission: honor God, nurture believers, and proclaim to the world." that you can learn all about at Calvary and at https://www.calvary.com/about/visionmission. I believe this overlaps very well with what DWELL stands for (Disciple believers, Worship God, and Evangelize the world with Love for God and Love for people). Calvary Monterey offers many other life groups in cities all around the Monterey Peninsula. Each life group seeks to discuss the Sunday teaching, making observations, remembering pastor Nate's points of interpretation, and making personal application of the Scripture to our lives.
So this Fall, Brenten and Lena will be leading a Life Group at Calvary Monterey in the Welcome Center for 12 Tuesdays beginning September 10th from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. This quarter we'll study 1 John, 2nd John and 3rd John. There is room for up to 18 people, but if you want to join, sign up now because space is filling up. Register at https://churchteams.com/m/Register.asp?a=Tk51STlIajlMcEk9. We also spend time supporting one another in prayer, and announce further opportunities to do life, service, and outreach together.

Special Events and Outreach Opportunities
6pm - 9pm
October 18th 6pm - 9pm
I would love to participate in special events like men's Bible studies and speak at conferences as I'm given the opportunity. If you are interested in joining me when I go, please contact me at (831)594-2633. I am offering to serve as a guest speaker, worship leader or participant in men's ministry groups that are missions-minded and willing to support the mission of DWELL On Truth.
This Friday, August 30th, I will be going down to Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz with Daniel Beaudoin to open air preach and engage in conversations with individuals who respond. If you'd like to join us as a witness, prayer supporter or financial supporter, please do!
Daniel and I have been invited to speak monthly on KSCO Radio Flight 1080. Date TBD.
Plans are being made for a DWELL conference on October 18th, 2018 for both men and women who would love to get further equipped for missions, discipleship, worship, and evangelism. Location and speakers TBD, TBA. Cost $10 per person.
I would love to worship, disciple and evangelize as often as possible in the counties of Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and in San Francisco Bay Area which is the least churched in all of the USA, but I am currently limited by my need to work a secular job and provide for my family that I love.
Please pray for support to increase so I can devote myself to fulfilling the mission part-time or full-time. If you would like to donate you can do so at or via PayPal or Apple pay via phone number (831)594-2633. For more info, call me or email .
