Meal Ministry

The Meal Ministry provides meals for families of ladies who have given birth or have undergone surgery or illness. As needs arise, information will be posted in the church foyer and the Meals Ministry leader will coordinate a customized online sign up sheet that makes it easy for those who sign up to take a meal to those in need.

This is a practical way to put your faith into action and to minister to the church body.

Jesus says to the disciples, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” ~ Mark 16:15. As a community of believers, it is our desire to live out this commission and touch every place on the map with The Good News, The Gospel and the love of Christ. Here at Calvary Chapel, we have been blessed to take the message of Jesus Christ to far reaching places like Ukraine, Japan, Italy and Israel.

We have taken many mission trips that have related to disaster relief to include a trip to Japan after the tsunami, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina, Iowa after devastating floods and Massachusetts after severe tornado damage.

But there is one special mission trip that we take every year to The Mission in Carmen Serdan, Mexico. At “The Mission”, we care for orphans who are handicapped and the theme verse for the mission is:

James 1:27 – “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Our shorter mission trips have been to Cleveland during the RNC and to prisons (“I was in prison and you came to visit me… I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” ~ Matthew 25:36, 40) in Ohio and Michigan.

Maybe the Lord is calling you to step out on one of these mission trips. I can only guarantee you will never be the same!

War Room Prayer Ministry

The War Room Prayer Ministry takes place during the first and second Sunday services. There are prayer teams of two people at each service – women teams, couple teams, and men teams.

As the Pastor is speaking to the congregation, the prayer warriors are listening and warring in the Spirit. It is simply amazing to sit at the Lord’s feet in consistent prayer and know He is doing a mighty work!

We pray constantly for our Lord to call the Prayer Warriors to come forward and join in the blessing of sitting at His feet.

Women’s Ministry

So join us for a bible study, get involved with a ministry, or jump into a fitness class!
