“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Calvary Church understands the responsibility we have as devoted followers of Jesus Christ. One way we live that out is through our support of local and global missionaries who have dedicated their lives to bring the gospel to all corners of the globe. These are some partnerships Calvary Church has with local missions.
The “A” Family
Calvary Church, in partnership with two other local churches, supported an incoming refugee family. In April 2022, The “A” family arrived in Connecticut. With our partner churches, we’ve helped meet their practical needs and supported their transition to living in the Greater Hartford area.
Youth Challenge is a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Hartford. Their faith-based program works to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of residents.
