A great way to learn about world missions is to attend the annual Calvary Missions Conference. This year, our theme is "Unstoppable!" We'll welcome 20 of our Calvary-supported missionaries and their families to share their stories and their hearts. God is at work in unstoppable ways across the globe, and you’ll hear about it during this inspiring week!

Meet our missionaries, hear about what God is doing through their ministries, and find out how you can be part of sharing the Gospel locally and around the world.

    Saturday, March 5, 2022

    Let's serve together to package food for hungry families with Servants With A Heart! All ages may participate in this project — it's a great opportunity for individuals, families, and small groups. 

    Servants With A Heart is a local nonprofit organization that provides highly nutritious dehydrated meals to malnourished children worldwide. Food scientists have formulated these meals to offer rich sources of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins. The food accommodates a broad range of cultural preferences. 
    How It Works: Calvary volunteers serve at tables to measure, weigh, assemble, and package meals. Three groups make up the packing process:
    • Scooping groups 
    • Weighing and sealing groups
    • Boxing groups
    Food Packing Shifts — Choose one:
    • Saturday, 10:30 AM–12:45 PM  
    • Saturday, 1:00–3:15 PM

    Sign-up Instructions: Have one member of your party sign-up for your group.

    "Ends of the Earth" Movie
    Missions Conference Week
    Sunday, March 6

    Sunday, March 6
    3:00–5:00 PM, Sanctuary

    “Ends of the Earth” is a Mission Aviation Fellowship documentary film that weaves together true stories of missions pilots — past and present — who strive with missionaries and local believers to take the Gospel to the most remote parts of the earth.

    The movie includes footage from Papua New Guinea, where three Calvary-supported missionary families serve. You’ll get an incredible perspective of the remote villages, breathtaking landscapes, and the courageous people who are willing to risk everything to follow Jesus’ final command.

    FREE event — All are welcome!

    Ends of the Earth — Movie Trailer!
