SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY
Calvary’s calendar is full of ways to give of your time, talents, and treasure in our community and beyond! Check out the service opportunities below and join us in living out our calling to serve God’s people.
Ongoing Opportunities and Relationships:
Calvary is proud to work with the Wichita non-profit, United Methodist Open Door, providing supplies, food, and volunteers to serve low income and homeless people in our community. With monthly food donations, bi-annual detergent drives, and yearly special events like a Thanksgiving Food Drive and Christmas Gift Drive to give to those in need, we are grateful to serve alongside this organization. We also have many members who volunteer directly at Open Door.
Calvary is grateful for our school partnership with Little Early Childhood Center! Along with volunteering at the school, we celebrate and support the staff and teachers of Little and do regular drives to get them the supplies they need as they raise up our community kids!
Calvary is passionate about helping people stay safe in their homes! Our Ramp and Housing Ministry team is sent out to build ramps for community members coming home from rehab or work on home projects to keep people safe and independent. Contact the church office to request a ramp for your home or to get involved in this good work.
Adults and Kids alike feel the call to serve in God’s world! At Calvary we have two teams of leaders who help our church get out and serve! The Outreach Team at Calvary informs, organizes and empowers our church family to serve throughout the year. Mission Possible is an awesome opportunity for fourth and fifth graders to learn about service and justice and create new ways for our congregation to love God’s world, following their lead!
Annual Service Opportunities
Each year, Calvary takes a Sunday to serve in God’s world together! This all-church celebration sends us out to numerous locations in the community to participate in construction projects, cleaning, relationship building, baking, creating and so much more!
Calvary takes January and February to raise paper goods and make meals for the Homeless Overflow Shelters run by Humankind Ministries. We are grateful to support this work and our neighbors in need during the coldest months of the year.
Each summer, Calvary raises money for Heifer International, an organization that provides animals, seeds, equipment and education for farmers and communities around the world so they can improve the goods they produce, the local economy and the community in sustainable ways. Our goal is to purchase a whole “ark” of animals each year by raising $5000 for this awesome organization. With our kids’ leadership at VBS and beyond, we surpassed our goal again this year!
As fall kicks off a new school year, Calvary supports our two school partners, Little Early Childhood Center and Cloud Elementary with supplies for the new year. We provide backpacks, schools supplies and uniforms for Cloud Elementary and sensory items, snacks and teacher tools for Little Early Childhood Center. We are so grateful to support both of these amazing schools!
