Supporting & Equipping Families

Families

At Calvary, we want families of all kinds to know and share the love of Jesus Christ. We strive to equip and encourage parents to build strong households within Christ-centered homes, sharing the love of God, the beauty of the Gospel and a life of faith with our next generation.

Everything we do and teach is consistent with the Bible as the Word of God, and we continually pray for God to be glorified and His will to be done in our homes and community.

Join us for opportunities on an ongoing basis to support and strengthen relationships, marriages, and families at all stages of life!

    Estate Design Seminars
    Thurs, March 21 | 2:00 & 7:00 PM (Free)
    Family finance from a biblical perspective

    Estate Design Seminars
    Thursday, March 21
    2:00 & 7:00 PM, Room 401
     
    "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." — 2 Corinthians 4:18
     
    When preparing financial plans, it is important to consider both the current and eternal perspectives. Our semi-annual seminars are focused on future planning and key components of estate design in light of God's Word. In addition to addressing typical concerns, you will be invited to ask yourself — what would the Lord have me do? Objectives include:
    • Strengthening — not straining — family relationships
    • Taking an all-encompassing approach
    • Care & guardianship of minor children
    • Avoiding negative impacts on beneficiaries
    • Tax considerations
    • Achieving greatest Kingdom impact

    There is NO cost for the seminar, and the process is absolutely confidential. You’ll benefit no matter your stage of life—whether you’re starting a family or reviewing plans as an empty-nester. Either update your current will and estate plan or get started now.

    Choose the 2:00 PM or 7:00 PM session. Walk-ins are welcome!

    Host an Orphan this Summer
    Sponsor school-aged children
    June – August

     

    What if a summer “missions trip” could happen in your very own home? Calvary families have the unique opportunity to host orphaned, school-aged children who long to learn about Jesus and experience His love.

    Calvary HOME Ministry is partnering with New Horizons for Children to offer children from Eastern Europe first-hand experiences with positive family relationships, spiritual nurturing, healthy hygiene, American culture, and immersion in the English language. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to hear the Gospel — they have a Heavenly Father who loves them dearly and is waiting to adopt them into His eternal family!


    Will you prayerfully consider hosting a child for six weeks (late-June to early–August) this summer?

    How you can help:
    •    Host a child
    •    Sponsor a child
    •    Plan a group activity
    •    Become a prayer partner

    Host family applications and deposits/sponsorships will be accepted through April; children will arrive in June.
     
    Estimated cost per child: $2,950
