Calvary Christmas Project
Since 1975 Calvary Baptist Church has reached out to families in need throughout our community. What began as a single class project serving eight families has now grown to an average of 175 families served each year. With more than 250 multi-generational volunteers giving hundreds of volunteer hours throughout the year, this church-wide project is at the heart of Calvary’s mission as a “Christ filled church in the center of our community.”
The 2013 Christmas Project will take place on Saturday, December 21. On that day each family will receive boxes filled with food and grocery supplies and children will receive specially purchased gifts from their personal "Wish List." Families also have the opportunity to share prayer requests with a member of the Calvary Prayer Team and each family member may select winter clothing, toys and other much needed items from our "gently used" collections.
We will begin taking donations around the beginning of October. Items that can be donated are:
Seasonal clothing (jeans, coats, hats, gloves, etc.)—laundered and in good repair. No summer items, please.
Gently used toys and games—complete with no missing parts.
Households items and appliances—in working order.
Linens, curtains, rugs, etc.—clean, in good repair, not soiled or stained.
For more information or ways you can participate, please call the church office at 859-254-3491 or email.
