Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world today, but it doesn’t have to be… you can feed our neighbors here and around the world!  Join Calvary Lutheran each October for the Cabarrus County CROP Hunger Walk. It is a very fun, family friendly walk to raise funds and awareness. 

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child was another success and a true sign of the loving and giving hearts at Calvary. 65 overflowing boxes were delivered. This picture was placed in each box. The message “We Love You and so does God” Calvary Lutheran Church, Concord NC USA was adhered to the back of each picture.   Through OCC, God is given the opportunity to touch the lives of millions of boys and girls in over 150 countries.

Calvary partners with CCM to provide Christmas gifts to families in need in our community.   Angels are adopted, gifts bought and then the families pick up their gifts and a plated meal the week before Christmas.  Thank you for your support of this wonderful Christmas ministry.  See Keith Sutton for more information.

School Partnership

Calvary's social ministry committee is always looking for ways to help our Calvary family put God's love into action in our community in tangible ways.  During 2019, we will be growing our partnership with Winecoff Elementary School through a project to support the staff, assisting with the most urgent needs for students, and helping to provide lunch buddies and mentors for students.  

If you have an interest in helping to build this partnership, we are beginning to make plans for the year.  We can use volunteers to help in many ways.  Please reach out to Ken Glace tarheelkwg@hotmail.com or Pastor Debbie dfrye@clconcord.org if you have an interest.  Thanks to everyone who delivers backpacks to Winecoff throughout the year, and everyone who brought in school supplies last July for the school.  The school has expressed their gratitude for our efforts.
