Calvary offers valet/reserved parking to our members and guests who may require assistance. To access valet/reserved parking on Sunday mornings, simply come into the Peacehaven Road parking lot entrance closest to the end of the E Building. As you enter, you will see a parking volunteer in an orange vest. Just roll down your window and let the volunteer know that you need parking assistance. The volunteer will direct you to a nearby reserved parking area. A Calvary shuttle will meet you at your parked car and then will drive you to the church building. The shuttles will be available outside the lobby between and after each service hour to take you back to your car.
Volunteers are a wonderful part of our ministry to the families of our church. According to James 1:27, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” As families with senior adults go through difficult times, Calvary’s volunteers are there to minister to them. Three of these ministries are described below. If you have a specific need or would like to speak with someone about volunteering in one of these areas of ministry, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You may also call our office at 336.714.5430.
RESPITE CARE MINISTRY
This is a ministry to our members that often comes at a time when they need it the most. For some it may be to help in a home while one of our members convalesces following a surgery; for others it may be to sit with a member which allows the primary caregiver time away from the home; for others it may be to provide a trip to the doctor or hairdresser or grocery store or pharmacy. But in every case it is one of our volunteers showing the love of Christ to others at their point of need.
FRONT PORCH MINISTRY
This is a companionship ministry for our homebound church members. Gone may be the days when families sit out on the front porch swing to talk about life, but Elder Care volunteers understand the need to stay connected with family and friends. These volunteers minister to our seniors by making regular visits in their homes and finding other ways to help the senior feel connected to our church.
ASSISTED LIVING MINISTRY
Calvary has several small ministry teams which go into area assisted living communities to provide church services for the residents. Volunteers help transport patients, lead music, share devotionals and simply spend time enjoying the seniors who look forward to this highlight in their week. This ministry also provides knitted lap blankets and other items to the residents at Christmas.
