calvary cares campaign

Calvary Cares is a way for our church to collectively 'Express God's Love' to the world. We are called by Jesus to be characterized by our love as his disciples (John 13:35), and we strive to exercise a servant's heart and one of generosity as we give and serve outside the walls of our church.  


Our Calvary Cares values drive why and how we strive to do that very thing:

  • Loving the Least (Matt. 25:40)
  • Reaching the Next (Matt. 19:14)
  • Equipping the Poor (Psalm 82:3-4)
  • Establishing the Church (Matt. 16:18)



calvary cares involves...

1. Supporting Missionaries

Caring for missionaries is so important because they represent us throughout the world as they proclaim the gospel, serve the poor and helpless! Our care for the missionaries is both financial and practical.  Financially we support our missionaries by giving 10% of every undesignated dollar toward our missionaries.  Practically we support our missionaries by staying in contact with them to better understand their needs so we can help meet them. This might include sending food or clothing that are not available in their area, or helping provide other resources for their family. Whatever it may be, we want to support them because they are part of the Calvary family!


2. Investing in Projects

The Calvary Cares Campaign exists to not only support missionaries, but also partner with local organizations in need. Each year we carefully select several projects that we can invest in and help further the mission of organizations making a difference in the world.

3. Missions Trips/Service Projects

Throughout the year, we have various Missions Trips.  Our goal is that everyone at Calvary will have the opportunity to go on a missions trip at some point in their lifetime, and that everyone has an opportunity each year to serve others outside our church.
