We will live out the Gospel by connecting people to Christ,
What is ONE by ONE? The One by One Initiative is a journey of growing our faith and generosity. For two years, many at Calvary have committed to give sacrificially in order to put our mission into action – living out the Gospel by connecting people to Christ, community and their calling. All giving is now credited to the ONE Fund (no more separate designations except for personal sponsorships). Specific goals and more details about the Initiative can be found at onefund.calvarysc.org. Total Commitments

Community and their Calling.
God-stories I have had a passion for orphan care from an early age. After college, I became a case manager at a foster care agency, believing that was where God was going to use that passion to fulfill His will in my life. He had other plans for that passion, which He gradually revealed—to my husband first, and then to me—over the next ten years. After much prayer, in 2009 we became foster parents, and two years later we adopted our two amazing children. During the past six years, God has captured the hearts of our son and daughter, and He has developed them immeasurably— physically, emotionally and spiritually. When we think about the struggles they have overcome so far, we are reminded of God’s perfect provision in all of our lives. Others sometimes express awe in us or our story, but the truth is that we don’t have unusual gifts or abilities. God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called! He is constantly molding us and equipping us. It has not been an easy or perfect journey for any of us, but it has been an amazing joy to be a witness of our children’s transformation into kids
who truly love the Lord. We pray and believe that He will use them and their redemption stories to make a difference in our broken world. We are richly blessed! ~ Lori Hamilton, a Calvary Harvest Fields family member seeking to live a life without walls. As a Christ-follower, we’re all called to care for the orphan in some way. There are a variety of ways at Calvary to support children: mentoring, sponsoring (Calvary Global Kids), foster care and adoption. To learn more about orphans locally and globally, attend: Orphan Sunday | November 8 6:00pm at State College Assemby of God. An evening of worship, teaching and dessert by the Centre County Orphan Care Alliance. Q’s: [email protected]
