The Board of Social Ministry ministers to the physical needs of those, churched and unchurched who have need for our help. By giving aid in a Christian manner, a door will be opened to introduce and/or reinforce Jesus Christ in the recipients’ lives. In addition, this ministry is responsible for helping to integrate and assimilate new members into the congregation.
Fellowship involves gathering people together for the purpose of our Mission. To encourage one another and build one another up (1 Thes. 10:24). And let us consider how to stir one another to love and good works (Heb. 10:24). Fellowship has a strong emphasis on assimilating new members into their chosen ministry teams offered at Mt. Calvary and bringing the congregation into fellowship with one another.
The Hospitality team is responsible for leading a team of members who will prepare meals for our shut-ins or any member who needs meal support and deliver these meals on a regular basis. The team is also the lead contact for special food events such as the New Member Meal, funerals, weddings, Confirmation, potlucks, and other special functions. The team is also responsible for serving snacks and coffee during Bible Study and is the lead contact for food service for any outreach events. The Hospitality team sends out birthday cards to members.
The C.O.R.E. team is responsible for leading a team of members to visit the shut-in members who are not physically able to attend services or events at Mount Calvary. They deliver copies of devotions, Bible Studies, Portals of Prayer, and other faith building materials to the shut-ins. The C.O.R.E. team also shares Christian love by providing comfort and support to the shut-ins. They also assess the spiritual and physical needs of the shut-ins to determine how our church can provide ongoing support for them.
