Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we have been created in Christ Jesus to do good works. We are God's hands and feet, and we have the opportunity to show God's love to hurting people. Here are a few ways Calvary Church is making an Irreplaceable Impact in our own backyard.

Community Care Team
Through a variety of ministries and programs, Calvary Church is making a difference in the lives of the people in our own community. For example, Neighbor Helping Neighbor Coalition provides comprehensive care. It's not helpful to put band-aids on people with broken arms. Supplying funds to pay an electric bill is not the same as helping the family learn why they can't pay their electric bill.
If you'd like to make a difference, help change the trajectory of a family living from crisis to crisis, consider becoming a Community Ministry Care Coordinator.
All three of Calvary's campuses work with at least one school. Volunteers support the faculty, staff, and students in a variety of ways. For example, a volunteer team might serve dinner to teachers on Parent/Teacher Conference day, another group helps copy, fold, staple, cut materials for teachers. It's so fun seeing the looks on the faces of the teachers! Join the team!

Weekend Hunger Project
Students in local schools who receive free lunches often go hungry on the weekends. Each Friday afternoon during the school year, students go home with a backpack filled with nutritious food for the weekend. An easy way to get involved is to stop by The Big Desk at your campus and ask what needs Weekend Hunger ha each week. Purchase those food items and bring them back the next week! A regular rotation of people providing food items means no hungry kids on the weekend!
