Calvary's Outreach and Evangelism Ministry is committed to extending care to people in the Chicagoland area who are in need. Through our many outreach programs, we strive to put God’s passion into action.

This work of compassion is rooted in Jesus' strong desire to see individuals and entire communities made whole. The very heartbeat of Jesus is to serve our local community by reaching out to those who are hurting, alone, in need, struggling or oppressed. 

The needs of hurting people in our own neighborhoods are vast and varied. By partnering with skilled ministries, agencies and organizations that are on the front lines of battling poverty, Calvary’s efforts and financial support have a multiplied impact upon those in need.

Calvary Church is organizing a network of people who have a heart for children without families. We would like to provide guidance and support as you walk down this incredibly rewarding path. Our hope is that you begin to see the face of Christ in each of these children.
