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.
We will help those who are seeking a “fresh start” by providing a “fresh cut!”
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.
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.
We will support those in the community who have tangible, one-time needs.
