Researchers have found after tracking seven thousand people over nine years, that those with strong relational connections are more likely to live longer than those who are isolated. The research showed people who had poor health, but strong relational connections, lived longer than people with good health habits, but no life connections. Life connections (Small Groups) at Calvary have helped people find that longer, better life. We would like to invite you to join one of our small groups and start enjoying life at the highest level in Jesus Christ.
