Social Ministry at Calvary

Habitat for Humanity

Calvary participates in Habitat building projects and also support Building on Faith an innitative that is supported by local churches.

CROP Walk

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen. CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations or groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world.   Calvary participates each year through sponsorships and walkers.

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.

Angel Tree

  

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.
