Unleash Compassion

1 Peter 3:8 reminds us that we are to be sympathetic, to love one another, to be compassionate and humble. As a church, when we take care of others, we are compassionate. This isn’t new to Calvary, or any other church. Each week there are many ways that we each find opportunities to show compassion. Jesus was compassionate, and our mission is to live and love as He did. We want to be even more strategic in our vision for showing compassion in our local area though – so, to that end, we will work in these areas:

Community Partnership Development

We will build new bridges of support and partnerships through Community Partnership Development.

As we have seen this year, there are many ways to partner with those who do great work in the community – as a church, we don’t have to start everything on our own! Through a new “Community Partnership Development” initiative, we will dig deeper into what we as a church can do to serve those partners in our community by using resources we already have, such as our facilities and staff.

Stephens Center

We will help those who are seeking a “fresh start” by providing a “fresh cut!”

Through a partnership with the Stephens Center, we will provide haircuts to those who are beginning a new search toward health and employment. Helping with self-image goes a long way toward helping those who are looking to begin a new journey and this is a small, yet tangible way to show the love of Christ.

Rejuvenating Women

We will support Women who have been victims of Human Trafficking.

Through a new partnership with Rejuvenating Women, we will provide for tangible needs within their care facility. Rejuvenating Women is an organization that supports and  protects women who are journeying through their healing process and we want to come alongside this organization to meet needs that would aid this process.

Macedonian Fund

We will fully fund our Macedonian Programs at each campus.

From time to time, we all have needs that could be helped with or met by others. For those who call Calvary their church home, we have always had a fund set aside to help each other along the way. These funds are often used to help bring health and change to those who receive it. We call this the Macedonian Fund.

Through this initiative, we will fully fund our Macedonian Programs at each campus. This allows for our campus leaders to help those who attend Calvary in a small, financial way in their time of need.

Compassion Support

We will support those in the community who have tangible, one-time needs.

Our church office receives many guests each year who simply need a small contribution of support in order to turn a corner. Often these needs are in the form of food, gas, or small bills that need to be paid. Our Macedonian Fund supports those who are involved in our church family long-term, however, for these guests, the needs are more immediate in nature. These funds will be used to meet these needs and to ensure we care for everyone who reaches out for help in some small way.
