CALVARY IN THE
OUR PURPOSE: TRANSFORMATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS
We strive for long-term connections that result in a societal change as our community learns a new and deeper meaning of what it means to receive and to give God’s love.
WAYS IN THE WILDERNESS. STREAMS IN THE WASTELAND.
Local School Partnerships
You don’t need an education degree to make a difference in the lives of local students. Volunteers go in on a once/week basis each semester to assist teachers and build relationships with students – and a larger team helps out with fun events for families once every other month! It’s relational and fun and shows the love of God to children in Rochester!
Western New York
Our church partners with World Relief Western New York to come alongside local refugees in their resettlement process. There are opportunities to come alongside refugees from all over the world and to show them what it looks like to be cared for by a neighbor.
When a local family has a need, this team receives an invitation to help by purchasing the items needed. We want to keep families together, support adoptive placements, and care for local students. Each gift comes with a personal connection to show our community that God loves them, and so do we.
Open Door Mission
Once a month, volunteers serve a meal and facilitate a short worship service at the Open Door Mission in Rochester. This is a great way to practically and spiritually meet the needs of the homeless population in Rochester.
Meal Train Team
Our meal train team provides meals for families both within our church body and also in our community. Whether a family just had a baby, lost a loved one, or had an unexpected change of circumstance, having a meal prepared for them is a weight off their shoulders and an avenue for them to see the love of God.
LINK Youth Mentorship
According to a U.S. Census Bureau Study, 73% of children in the city of Rochester grow up in a single-parent family. LINK connects men from local area churches with young men from our community who would benefit from a consistent and caring male role model. Interested in being a mentor?
