2017 Projects: How Can I Get Involved?

 
This information will be updated throughout the year and will include links to sign up as necessary.  


1. Cuba Mission:  Calvary Missions Team successfully collected 100 pounds of donations for Rev. Angela to take with her to Cuba March 3-12 as she serves on a Volunteers in Mission team with young adults from around the region.  While we cannot collect any more items, through the end of February financial gifts can still be made to support the Cuban Methodist Churches.  Make checks out to Calvary UMC with "Cuba Mission" in the memo.

2. Habitat for Humanity: Come this spring and participate in a Saturday work day with Habitat for Humanity.  Details and sign up coming soon.

3. Weekend of Caring:  During this October weekend our goal is to engage EVERYONE in some opportunity for community service.  We will have a Stop Hunger Now food packing event that is a great opportunity for folks of all ages and skills.  There will be many other opportunities in the community to serve.  Sign ups will begin in September.

4. Nicaragua Mission Trip:  We will be partnering with Damascus United Methodist Church to send a team to La Danta, Nicaragua.  The trip will be held early January 2018.  Interested in this mission opportunity?  Contact Fran Roth at franroth@earthlink.net  Fundraising efforts will be underway beginning late spring.  

5. Christmas projects:  As we prepare for the Advent/Christmas seasons, the Missions Team will be encouraging the congregation to support special projects.
