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.
 
Men’s Carpentry Trip
May 15-16
Cost:  $75 all inclusive
There will be several work projects to complete over a couple of days.
 
Family Trip
July 24-25
Cost: $100 per family
all inclusive
This will be a child friendly trip. 
This is another great opportunity for families to develop a mission focus
with their children.

Cookie Bakers Needed for College Ministry

The College Ministry needs volunteers to bake cookies for our weekly Cookie Ministry.  Everyone knows that college students love homemade treats so each week we deliver cookies to our first time college visitors.  The obligation is to bring 2-3 dozen homemade cookies to the church office on your designated Sunday (one time each semester).  We package and deliver them to the students.  Just sign up and we'll mail you a Cookie Ministry schedule as well as a reminder card on your designated week.  It's an easy way to share God's love with students who are far from home and looking to connect with a church in Lexington.
