Calvary Church is once again hosting Single Moms’ Saturday on Saturday, July 22 from 10am-noon. Single parents face many challenges, and we want to bless them! There are over 10,000,000 single-mother families within the US.  We want to offer support to them and show them and their children the love of Jesus.

This year’s event will be a drive-through pick up at our Jefferson Street Campus building!  Each mom will receive several gifts from Calvary Church including a prepared meal for her family, a gift certificates to Hope Thrift Center, groceries for her home, and school supplies for her children!


This event will provide gifts to close to 100 moms and at least that many children!  It is the help of our volunteers and donations from the community that make this event a success. 

We need individuals who are willing to help prepare for the event as well as work the day of the event. Click here to register and select an area to serve!

This year we want to bless each mom with groceries for her family and school supplies for her children. Donations can be dropped off in the Church Office on Jefferson Street during business hours or at either campus on Sunday mornings leading up to the event. 

Monetary donations will also help to purchase the food, gift bag items, craft supplies, car wash gift certificates, etc.  Please make checks payable to Calvary Church and put SMS in the memo line so we can assure your donation gets put towards the purchase of these items.
