Families

At Calvary, we desire to support and strengthen families as we worship and grow together, developing marriages and homes that honor God.

We provide opportunities for couples and families to be encouraged and equipped by:

  • Teaching biblical truths to families and children (Ephesians 5:22–6:4)
  • Shepherding families to walk in a manner worthy of the calling (Ephesians 4:1)
  • Equipping families for the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12)
  • Praying for husbands and wives to fulfill their biblical roles and responsibilities and to spiritually lead and nurture their children (Ephesians 6:18)

Interested in opportunities and activities focused on marriage, home, and family? Read more about our supporting ministries below and check out our Featured Events.

    Host an Orphan
    New Horizons for Children
    June – August

    What if a summer “missions trip” could happen in your very own home? Calvary families have the unique opportunity to host orphaned, school-aged children who long to learn about Jesus and experience His love.

    Calvary HOME Ministry is partnering with New Horizons for Children (link goes to external organization page) to offer children from Latvia and Ukraine first-hand experiences with positive family relationships, spiritual nurturing, healthy hygiene, American culture, and immersion in the English language. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to hear the Gospel — they have a Heavenly Father who loves them dearly and is waiting to adopt them into His eternal family!

    Will you prayerfully consider hosting a child for six weeks (mid-June to mid-August) this summer?

    How you can help:
    • Host a child
    • Sponsor a child
    • Plan a group activity
    • Become a prayer partner
    Host family applications and deposits/sponsorships will be accepted through April; children will arrive in June.
     
    Estimated cost per child: $2,950
