We have opportunities for you to join us in service in-person and on-campus throughout the week (while doing so safely under Covid-19 restrictions). You can also serve the church and community online on the weekend and throughout the week. We are able to offer you one-on-one coaching or small group training, while adhering to safe physical distancing guidelines of online via video conferencing.

One area of focus for our Mission Outreach ministry is Food Insecurity.  Check out these videos showing our Calvary Cares Food Drive Program and making Sack Lunches for those in need.

Coming soon! Christmas Angels!

Please join us this year as we work together to share God's love, support military families in need, and strengthen our community of faith.

The Christmas Angels Mission

The Angels ministry assists local enlisted families experiencing severe financial hardship. Families stationed here are often unprepared for the high cost of living and the challenges of being separated from the support of family back home.

How We’ll Accomplish our Mission

We partner with Support the Enlisted Project (STEP) to connect with families who are working to stabilize their financial situations, with the goal of becoming debt-free and self-sufficient. With your help, we’ll ‘adopt’ these families for Christmas and provide:
• Christmas dinner- a turkey + all the fixings for a holiday meal
• Gifts for all members of the families
• Bible storybooks for the children
• Commissary gift cards
• And the prayers and compassion of our congregation.

Sunday November 12, in the Courtyard: Food Drive Begins

Calvary’s youth will staff the tables in the courtyard and help you adopt the non-perishable foods needed to make a complete Christmas dinner for each family.
Please stop by to see how you can help!
