Our college ministry is committed to helping college age (18-22) young adults connect with God and with other young adults through Bible studies, small groups, events, and simply spending time together. All are invited to each ministry, as long as you are a college student!

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Sunday Morning from 9am-10am


On Sunday mornings during the Bible study hour you can grab a bagel and some coffee downstairs and then head all the way upstairs to the College & Young adult room. Every week we open the Bible, read through a passage, talk about it, and apply it to our lives. 

Small Group

During school year: Wednesday night at 9pm
During Summer: Tuesday night at 6:30pm at Pastor Noah's house


Once a week we have a small group that meets on campus at Judson University (Contact Pastor Noah for directions & details). We discuss important topics to young adult Christians today. We try to find answers to the tough questions that many of us spend most of our lives wondering or confused about. 

Ways To Get Involved

Joining a small group - We have a weeknight small group for college students. 


Joining our college and young adult Bible study - We meet every Sunday morning before church at 9am to study the Bible together. 


Practicum & Internships - We welcome practicum students and offer a variety of internships in areas like Worship Ministry, Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Children’s Ministry, and Church Planting. 


Serving in Ministry - Calvary is full of current and former Judson students. We have always had a passion for letting college students utilize their gifts for the good of the Church and for their own personal spiritual growth. We are always looking for students willing to serve in:


  • Youth Ministry - Sunday Night from 6-8pm, Thursday from 7-8pm


  • Children’s Ministry - Children’s Church, Sunday School Teaching


  • Crossroads Kids Club - Wednesday kids outreach from 6:45-8pm. 


  • Music Ministry - Several current Judson students serve on our worship team and our last two part-time worship leaders were Judson students. In fact, we’ve just begun the search process for a part time worship leader and we’d love to talk with you about it!


  • Church Planting - If you’re interested in church planting, you’ll fit right in at Calvary. We we have lots of opportunities to get involved in church planting efforts right here in Elgin and the Fox Valley.
