Behind the Scenes

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It's one of our favorite times of year around here...

Operation Christmas Child at Calvary!

Every shoebox that Operation Christmas Child delivers blesses a child and shares the gospel with them. It's an incredible opportunity for us to get involved in the evangelism and discipleship of children around the world!

Last year we collected enough items to pack almost 1,000 shoeboxes.

This year we're going to blow that number out of the water and set our goal to collect items to pack 1,500 shoes boxes!

Along those lines, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect and distribute 12 million shoeboxes this year. If they're successful, this could be the largest distribution of the gospel in history.

Will you help us accomplish this goal?

It's way easier than you may think! Just bring in a few items each week and then join us for our big packing party on Saturday, November 12.

Every year the Student Ministry hosts an overnighter at Ozzy's Family Fun Center. It's a blast and this year Ozzy's had new and improved go-karts so you can only imagine what a hit that was!

But the Ozzy's event is about more than just fun. It's also a huge outreach event. 

Students love to be able to invite their friends to this night because who doesn't want to play laser tag at 3:30AM?! And the Student Ministry Lead Team loves to take this opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ with people who may have never heard it before. 

Before the buses took off, the students gathered in the Loft to hear testimonies from three of their peers. Pastor John Lawley then came up on stage and shared the gospel.

After he spoke, Pastor John invited anyone who would like to commit or recommit their lives to Christ to the front of the room.

34 students came forward.


Praise God for these students! What a blessing and honor it is to host the kids that come through our doors.
