GIVING PHILOSOPHY

Calvary Church people are committed to giving regularly to God and his work. It’s not only biblical—it’s also a way to partner with God. How much should you give? Your giving should be in proportion to how God has blessed you. (2 Corinthians 8:7 and 9:7)

Every dollar given to our General Fund is used to support the overall mission of Calvary—to build relationships, and see Jesus transform lives. While gifts can’t be designated for use by a specific ministry, you can request your gifts go towards one of three Funds: the General Fund, Impact (missions) Fund, and the Community Care Fund. We have one ministry that you can specifically support: After School Kids (ASK) Program.
