Our local outreach mission at Calvary Church is to mobilize our entire church
community to cultivate relationships and provide resources to eternally
impact our local community with the love of Christ.

Featured Serving Opportunities

Men's Shelter Volunteer

New Creation Men's Center

Serving at the men's shelter is an opportunity to show the love of Christ to a brother in need. We are seeking men who would be interested in taking a shift on a Tuesday evening, either once this season, once per month, or every other week. Life Groups of 6 men can easily cover one evening of shifts. Contact Men's Shelter Coordinator, Mike Tym (mtym@ponderco.com; 312.961.0274) to sign-up or for more information.

Shift 1 (9p-12a) - assist with check-in and evening routine, building patrol.

Shift 2 (12a-4a) - building patrol.

Shift 3 (4a-7a) - provide/prepare breakfast, clean-up, and check-out.

Friendship Families

Befriend international students

Would your family like to befriend an incoming VU international student? Partnering with Friendship Families is a great opportunity to have a Christian impact on students by simply sharing life with them as they adjust to American life and culture. Contact coordintators William and Lyndsay Ploehn (lmanders4982@gmail.com;  765.242.1606).

Kids Hope Mentoring

TJ Elementary School

Calvary partners with Kids Hope and TJ Elementary School to carry out the mission of 'one mentor, one child, one hour each week'. Would you give hope to a child this year by becoming a Kids Hope Mentor? A mentor must be able to do four things: say the child's name, be faithful, believe in the child, and pray for the child. Visit us in the church foyer on Sundays 8.27 & 9.10 for more information or contact Kids Hope Volunteer Director, Sarah Jarvis (sarah.ap.jarvis@gmail.com; 219.241.3088). There are also opportunities to be a Prayer Partner for this ministry. Contact Prayer Partner Coordinator, Suzann Wodetzki (swodetzki@frontier.com; 219.241.3028) for more information.

Host a Ladies Night

domestic violence shelter

The Caring Place is a shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. A great way to serve the women in shelter is to host an evening theme night with a meal and special activity (game night, movie, crafts, etc.).
