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. Many at Calvary have committed to give sacrificially in order to put our mission into action. All giving is credited to the ONE Fund (no separate designations except for personal sponsorships). Specific goals and more details about the Initiative can be found at onefund.calvarysc.org.

If this is your first time here (or if your information has changed), please fill out this card and drop it in the offering plate or bring it to the Connection Center. We’d love to meet you - we’re so glad you came!
