Weekend Missions Opportunities

We will take two different mission teams to the Galilean Home in Casey County, KY.  The Galilean Home takes care of the children of incarcerated women until they are released from prison.  The home takes the children to the prison to visit their mothers once a week.  The Galilean Home also houses severely handicapped adults in another home on the campus.  This is an exciting new ministry partnership for Calvary to be involved in.
