Local and International Missions is a big part of the life of Calvary Temple. Our vision is to reach beyond the walls of our church and make an impact on our world in practical and spiritual ways. Some ways that we serve in our local community and countries around the world is by looking after the poor, orphans, and people in crisis. We are blessed to support pastors and global workers at home and overseas, as well as help with practical projects like building orphan houses, rehab centers, and other building projects. Allow me to introduce you to great mission organizations and missionaries all over the world that we have the privilege of partnering with.
As a church congregation we are determined to never become ingrown. We are blessed to give. We are always happier and most joyful when we give. In fact God made us to be givers. Opportunities to bless are posted and promoted every week so that we as a congregation can be intentional in blessing others. This may mean giving money to a special project, doing an act of kindness, giving time and energy, or giving of our resources.
