Serve at Calvary
As authentic followers of Christ, we want to be active in our faith and serve Christ by serving others.
It’s easy to get involved! Below is a list of some current and ongoing ministry needs, or check out our Local Ministry Partners for opportunities to serve in our community.
Hearts & Hammers
Men, join a team to do household repairs and yard work for Calvary members who need a helping hand!
Teams gather first at Calvary once a month for devotions and prayer before heading out to their assigned home. Teams support the same care receiver on a regular basis to complete work and build relationships.
Ready to join us? The next training session is scheduled at 8:45–9:30 AM on June 16 in Room 226. To allow for preparation and any real-time updates, online registration is required at least two days prior to the training date.
Please note: Our May 19 training session has been cancelled, but we look forward to resuming in June!
Career Ministry Coaches
Recent Gallup and Barna Group polls indicate that many people in the workforce are either looking for work or feel their career isn't their true calling.
Calvary's Career Ministry assists in helping our community discover their calling by providing Scripture–based programs, support groups, and instruction.
We are seeking Calvary members to serve as Career Coaches. Experience in hiring or managing is preferred, but not required. If you have a heart for helping others and a listening ear, please prayerfully consider this ministry!
