Middle School Ministry – Project Cenla

Over spring break, some of our middle school students chose to be a part of Project Cenla. Over several days, they served alongside multiple organizations in Cenla. Please pray for these students and leaders as they continue becoming Mission Minded Servants.

Our students served at the Food Bank of Central LA and helped package over 150 food bags, 800 weekend food bags, 1,000 bags of potatoes for families, and 600 individual heads of cabbages! Our students are communicating, team building, and serving one another in many ways. We are thankful for the Food Bank for allowing us to serve them!

We were extremely grateful for Louisiana Baptists and Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief for allowing us to use/learn about their mission field. They are doing some incredible work not just in our state, but even across the globe.

Fostering Community is an incredibly important ministry in Cenla. They support families who provide foster care and the children who need fostering. Our middle school missionaries went shopping to gather household items and groceries for youth over 18 who are in extended foster care. It helps them as they transition to adulthood. It was also a chance for our middle schoolers to learn about both serving and household shopping. You can learn more about the many services provided by Fostering Community and how to be involved at fosteringcommunity.org.

Missions Update – April 2024



Our children’s ministry staff really hit a home run at our recent Family Missions Day! Not only was it a fun time together, but our children also planted flower pots and made cards to bring to 38 seniors in our home care ministry. They packed 48 boxes to be given to children in domestic violence shelters through ShelterKidz. A cow, a pig, chickens, fish, and water filters were given through Send Relief. Forming missions minded servants happens when churches and families come together to train children. Thanks to everyone who helped and to all of the parents who came with their children.


Please pray for the Noblits as they minister in Japan. There has been a great loss due to a recent earthquake, but it is also a chance for believers to minister to people in need. Email ciles@calvarynet.net if you want to know how to get their regular news updates.


The Taylors have sent out their latest update. Pray that they will have divine appointments to meet the right people for them to reach as they prepare to plant a church in the Calgary area. Subscribe to all of their updates at the bottom of this page: https://www.taylorsonmission.org


Our Uganda team recently spent time in the Kiryandongo Refugee Settlement where there are 60,000 refugees from South Sudan. Please take a moment and pray for the people of Kiryandongo. Pray for their health and safety and that the Christians there will spread the message of the kingdom of God.

Women’s Retreat 2024


The Calvary Women’s Retreat 

The 2024 Calvary Women’s Retreat was a wonderful weekend for women of all ages to spend time growing in their faith and connecting with other Christian women. Every woman was encouraged to disconnect from the distractions of life and focus on what God was doing in their stories. God used the speakers, singing, testimonies, and small group times to remind everyone He is always there. It was a weekend filled with many memorable moments that allowed for God to work in their hearts and lives. If you ask any woman who has attended, they will tell you what an incredible life-changing experience it was! Maybe you would like to attend next year? Be on the lookout at the end of this year for next year’s registration.

Family Missions Day

Our Family Missions Day will be an excellent opportunity for families to learn about the various mission efforts we support. In addition to being educational, this event will allow families to participate in several mission projects. It is designed for school-aged children and their families.
