Christmas Project 2019

Calvary Christmas Project 2019

Since 1975 Calvary has been helping Lexington families celebrate the joy of Christmas! We are so excited for the outreach opportunities provided by the Christmas Project. Please see below for all the important dates, volunteer opportunities, and ways to contribute to Calvary’s Christmas Project.

Donations

On December 21 st the Calvary Christmas Project families are invited to shop for clothing, toys and household items when they come to receive their food and gift boxes. Your “gently used” children’s toys, housewares and clothing are very much appreciated by these families. Clothing should be laundered, in good repair, and placed on wire hangers . Toys should be clean and undamaged. Small games and puzzles need to be bagged; complete with no missing pieces. Household items, electronics, furniture and appliances must be clean and in working order.

Also needed are new packages of underwear and socks for all ages. Disposable diapers and Pull-up training pants are also requested.

Donations may be dropped off in the basement of Calvary’s Education Building 2 now through December 18th .

With donations already coming in, we need volunteers on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30 pm to help with sorting and organizing in the EB 2 basement. Contact Missy Sanders with questions about donations and sorting help at 859-948-7896 or via email.

Volunteer Help

Sorters for Donated Items

We are receiving donations of clothing, household items and toys daily. We need people to help fold, hang, sort, and box these items on Wednesdays from 5:30pm-7:30pm in the EB2 Basement (October through early December).

Gift Wrappers

Gift wrapping will begin December 4th in the EB2 Basement. We need groups representing the Deacons, Youth, College Ministry, Sunday School Classes, and the Women’s Ministry to pick a time to help wrap the children’s “Wish List” gifts. We will wrap on Wednesday and Sunday evenings starting at 6pm.

Refreshments for Christmas Project Distribution Day

We need cookies, brownies, and candies to serve the families that come to pick up their gift boxes on Saturday, December 21st.

Christmas Project Distribution Week Crew

Plan now to be at Calvary on December 18th, 20th, and 21st to:

● help move items from the EB 2 basement to the ROC

● unload food and prepare the grocery boxes

● meet and greet the Christmas Project families

● deliver gifts and food boxes to families unable to pick up their items

National Day of Prayer at Calvary 5/1/19

At Calvary Baptist Church we are planning an intergenerational prayer program on Wednesday, May 1st at 6:30pm in Fellowship Hall for the National Day of Prayer. We have scheduled our Day of Prayer a day in advance of the National Day of Prayer (on Thursday, May 2nd), so that more of our church family may participate in this event.


Our theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019 is Love One Another. The theme comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.”

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.

Our hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. We can come together in clear agreement that this is our greatest need. We can become a visible union, standing together in prayer. We can pray more than ever before, and practice extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God in America that will catapult the message of the gospel nationally and internationally.

"There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God's people." Dr. Ronnie Floyd
