Impact Our World

Serving at Home and Abroad

God has called believers to step outside their cultural comfort zones and make a difference in the lives of others. Our outreach ministry at Calvary Church is called Impact, because it's our goal to impact our neighborhoods, communities, nation, and ultimately, our world by sharing the love of Jesus with those in our sphere of influence.

Calvary Church is a giving church, with funds earmarked in our budget just for Impact, our missions ministry. On this page, you can see events, short-term trips, featured partners, and our Global and Local Impact Partners. If you support Impact, you support all of these ministries here and around the world.

HOME BASE

   

 

The purpose of Home Base is to provide a welcoming and restful place for Calvary’s Impact candidates and partners (and others serving in ministry around the world) to recharge while on home assignment. The home has been completely refurbished inside and out by contractors and volunteer work teams from Calvary. Home Base is fully-furnished and has all new appliances in the kitchen and laundry room and a new gas fireplace in the living room. There are two bedrooms and a nook area upstairs, and one bedroom on the main level.

Our desire, first and foremost, is that Home Base will be a peaceful place for rest and recovery. Beyond that, we hope it will serve as a Home Base for our partners and friends to visit with family, friends, and support team members while at home.

To date, Bridging has served over 80,000 households and currently operates out of two locations—Bloomington and Roseville.

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a community-based service that focuses on providing fresh, nutritious meals and delivering them directly to the home of seniors and others with limited mobility. Calvary partners with 15 other Twin Cities churches to fill the need for a fresh meal and a listening ear for homebound individuals. It’s a minimal commitment—just two hours, once a month!

At New Life Family Services, we believe each person should have the ability to receive physical, emotional, and spiritual support as they face pregnancy-related situations and circumstances.

We walk beside each client offering them love and support to make informed and educated decisions in their time of crisis and need. It is through this care that we are seeing God change hearts, save lives, build families, and restore hope.

• Client support roles are only available during New Life Family Service business hours. More information can be found at nlfs.org/get-involved/volunteer
• Ministry support roles vary and can be matched to volunteer availability and time commitment. Examples include donating baby items, distributing brochures in your area, and more.

The Sandwich Project

Each year, various organizations put together programs for Thanksgiving and Christmas to help feed, clothe, and take care of those in economic need. An honest question, pondered by those who participate is—what happens the other 364 days of the year?

The Sandwich Project was established with these other days in mind. They feed about 4,500 people per week through various shelters and food shelves. 

You can help with just a small amount of time and a small amount of money that makes a huge difference. A journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step and The Sandwich Project can get you started.

• Fill out a request form online at thesandwichprojectmn.org
• Purchase supplies through Coborns Delivers or purchase the meat, cheese, bread, and bags yourself.
• Assemble the sandwiches. (Follow detailed instructions online.)
• Drop off sandwiches at one of the drop sites. Be sure to notify the drop site location that you will be bringing donations prior to your delivery.
