Ministry Partners

Calvary helps to support a number of ministries that serve locally, in the greater Denver area, nationally, and abroad. Below are the outreach ministries we are engaged with by providing hands on involvement and financial support. Contact Bethany Thomas if you would like more information on how you can serve others.


Local

Golden Backpack Program

Calvary partners with the Golden Backpack Program to support their work of feeding hungry children in our community through their Fresh Food Co-op, through their weekend food sacks distributed at the schools and through the Snack-N-Wagon, their mobile summer food program.

Neighborhood Rehab Project

A large number of Calvary members participate in the annual Day of Service event that rehabs the homes of seniors, disabled and limited income members of our community.

The Salvation Army/Golden Service Extension Unit (SEU)

Calvary houses this ministry and serves on the Golden SEU Committee. A large number of our members ring bells each year to raise funds that are used to assist Golden area residents with rent, utilities, prescriptions, medical bills and other needs .

Golden Rescue Fund

Calvary houses this community-based resource that provides emergency assistance with gas cards, bus passes, emergency food, grocery cards, prescriptions and lodging (when available) for those traveling through our community, as well as residents who find themselves in need.

Calvary Food Shelf

A team of Calvary members manages the Food Shelf, which is regularly accessed by individuals and families in our community needing this type of assistance.

Christian Action Guild

Many members of Calvary volunteer on a regular basis with this local organization that offers food, clothing, and other items from their Thrift Shop, to individuals and families who live in Golden.

GoFarm

Several Calvary members are engaged with this local non-profit that works to increase access in the community to local, fresh food. The sale of their CSA (community supported agriculture) shares supports various outreach programs that focus on specific populations who have limited access to fresh vegetables and fruit.    

Joyful Noise Music Ministry

The Joyful Noise Music Ministry is focused on senior members of Calvary, as well as other seniors, who are shut-in or who reside in Golden area nursing homes. This ministry provides audio equipment, personalized recorded music, and fellowship to those who have become isolated from the greater community.

Hands of the Carpenter

Calvary supports this local ministry that addresses the transportation needs of women, especially single moms, widows and those who don’t have the resources to repair their car or purchase a new vehicle. A variety of volunteer opportunities are available.

Regional

St. Francis Center

Volunteers serve at this day shelter for the homeless during the week, and on the 4th Sunday morning of each month. We also provide a wide variety of donations on a regular basis.

Refugee Resettlement

Calvary supports three organizations - African Community Center, Lutheran Family Services and International Rescue Committee - that work with refugees getting settled in the Denver Metro Area.

The Action Center

This organization works with individuals and families in need who live in Jefferson County. Many Golden residents access this resource that is focused on moving people toward self-sufficiency. We provide donations and often refer people to this resource for assistance beyond what is available locally.

National

Filters for Families, Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota

Calvary works with this non-profit organization to support their efforts to install water filters in homes in order to remove heavy metals and toxins found in the groundwater. Calvary members periodically travel to the reservation to assist with water testing, distribution of water filters and education.

Global

Freshwater Project International

Calvary provides financial support for this non-profit organization that works in Malawi, Africa, to bring fresh water and sanitation systems to schools, clinics and villages in rural areas of this country.
