CALVARY MISSIONS

Acts 1:8 instructs Christians to go into all the world and make disciples of all people.  Jesus told His disciples to go to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the world.  At Calvary, we approach missions the same way.

 

 JERUSALEM (SCOTTSBORO)

Jerusalem Ministry focuses on the needs of our hometown, Scottsboro, Alabama.  During the summer, Project Hope ministers to children and adults through a Backyard Vacation Bible School program and a block party for residents of a nearby housing project.  We also participate in many other ministries within Scottsboro, including Upward Basketball for grades 1st - 6th grade.

 

JUDEA (JACKSON COUNTY)

Judea Ministry searches out the needs of the county where we reside.  Meals on Wheels delivers food to residents who are unable to leave home and get food for themselves. 

 

SAMARIA (ALABAMA AND THE REST OF THE UNITED STATES)

Samaria Ministry devotes its work to reaching out to our state and the rest of our nation and especially those who have a different way of life than most of our Scottsboro culture.  

We currently partner with the Community of Hope ministry in Montgomery, Alabama, by performing mission activities with the residents of the various housing projects and the C.O.H. ministry center in the Montgomery area.  The Myers-Mallory State Mission Offering helps to undergird the five strategic priorities of Alabama Baptist; Alabama WMU, Disaster Relief, Church Planting, Alabama Partnership Missions, and Church RevitalizationAlabama. We also lead our church by setting goals for and promoting the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American missions for our church.  Several of our men participate with Carpenters for Christ helping with constuction

 

UTTERMOST PARTS OF THE WORLD (EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD)

Jesus challenged us to think globally in terms of missions.  At Calvary, we have a long history of foreign mission participation to countries around the globe. At present, we participate in Operation:  Christmas Child shoebox collection as a part of the Samaritan's Purse ministry.  We also collect Shoes for Orphan Souls in partnership with Buckner International, and a team from our church participates in an annual mission trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, to minister to the children there and place new shoes on their feet. Also, this ministry sets the goal for and promotes the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for global missions. We have participants who partner with Mission: Hope, formerly R.O.W., to perform construction and other ministries in countries ravaged by poverty and resource shortages.  

 

ARE WE THERE YET?  NO, BUT UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD IS REACHED WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, WE MUST MINISTER AND SHARE CHRIST'S LOVE!!!
