Thanksgiving Service...
...so many ways to continue what Jesus started! 

This year instead of a Thanksgiving Eve church service, Calvary will host a variety of opportunities to serve our local, regional, and global communities.

Rise Against Hunger Food Packing
Donations to help with the cost of food are still being accepted. Donate online at calvary-church.com/give or mark your donations "RAH" and drop in the offering Sunday. 19 cents provides one meal; how many can you give? 

Oxford Circle Toy Store

  • Sign up to help at the store in Oxford Circle in December.
  • Donate toys, gift wrap supplies, gift cards, or cash through Dec. 10. See a list of teen gift ideas at calvary-church.com/regional.
