Just as with a drug addiction, sexual addiction causes the user to become dependent on external stimulation to meet inner needs. The tragic cost of sexual addiction is seen in shattered marriages, broken families, accounts of sexual and physical abuse, and ruined spiritual lives.
The first step away from the snare of sexual addiction is to admit that you cannot win this battle alone. You need God’s help and the help of others who understand the battle and can show you how to gain victory.
Men’s Purity group is led by two co-facilitators who are mature in their walk with Christ and have experienced freedom from sexual addiction. This freedom comes through God’s power and practicing the principles covered in the group.
When you are ready to find freedom, call (215) 703-0540. This phone line is secure, and your name, information, and story will remain confidential.
Betrayed Heart offers support to wives of men dealing with sexual purity issues including pornography, affairs, and/or sexual addiction. This confidential group meets off-site. For more information, call our confidential and secure number (215) 723-5385.
If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found that many people do not understand the deep hurt you feel. At Calvary, you will find those who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

The Big D
The Big D, designated for 12-18 year olds , promotes identifying and finding the strength to accept and heal from various hurts and confusion a divorce can cause. It begins with denial, pushes through anger issues, and ends with the freedom to understand and experience true forgiveness. Through this weekly program, the desire is that your teen will leave a changed person who has the tools to navigate his or her future with God’s help.
Divorce care for kids
Divorce Care for Kids (DC4K) is for children ages 5-12 and helps them heal from the separation or divorce of their parents. At our weekly DC4K group, kids make friends with other kids who understand how they feel and the things they are going through.
DC4K follows the same schedule and age-appropriate themes as the adult Divorce Care program, allowing parents and children to progress through the healing process together and providing a springboard for meaningful discussions.
