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
Join us as we show the love of Christ to others and bless our community! Here are just a few specific ways that you can be a part of this mission. If you are interested in other opportunities to serve, contact our Director of Local Outreach, Victoria Peasley.
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 (email@example.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.
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. Stop by our table in the foyer on July 9th, 16th, and 24th for more information or contact coordintators William and Lyndsay Ploehn (firstname.lastname@example.org; 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. Join our Launch Party on August 5th to learn more. Contact Kids Hope Volunteer Director, Sarah Jarvis (email@example.com; 219.241.3088) for more information. There are also opportunities to be a Prayer Partner for this ministry. Contact Prayer Partner Coordinator, Suzann Wodetzki (firstname.lastname@example.org; 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.).
