July 18-22, 2016. We thank God for all those who participated in our joint Vacation Bible School in anyway from Calvary, Iglesia Bautista El Calvario (IBHEC), friends of both churches parents, children, youth and families. Because of you this was a tremendous success again. We give special thanks to Pastor Orlando and First Lady Sandra Irizarry of (IBHEC) who pulls this event and both churches together every year to reach souls in the community for Christ!

We have been blessed to receive $8,079 so far for the renovations to the kitchen off the dining room downstairs. The majority of donations have come from Calvary Baptist Church members. We have sent out grant requests to foundations and two have declined. We are still hopeful to hear from three more. We pray that the congregation and all the sister-users of the kitchen contribute to this fund as we all use our kitchen. We have started renovations and the floor is complete. We had wanted to have the project completed before the SPNM children’s summer program and vacation Bible school. Please open your hearts to help us fund this very important project. Please make checks payable to Calvary Baptist and write kitchen renovation in the memo section. Thank you so much for your help in ministering to the children of South Providence. —Building Use Committee
Our church kitchen, that serves not only Calvary and Iglesia Bautista Hispana El Calvario but also South Providence Neighborhood Ministries for after school programs and summer camp, and all of our sister churches, is in dire need of repairs/renovations. As you can see from the photo, it has been quite a while so we will be sending out an appeal letter to charitable organizations and the congregation to help with this important project. We plan to bring the kitchen up to code by replacing ceiling tiles and wall board, repairing and painting the cabinets, putting in a new subfloor and flooring and installing new laminate countertops as well as upgrades to electrical and plumbing. We also need to cover the butcher block with stainless steel or remove it because it doesn’t meet safety standards. We would also like to install a used industrial dishwasher and a refrigerator that would better serve SPNM. We have already received a donated industrial stove.
We pray that the congregation and all the sister-users of the kitchen contribute half the cost and look to outside funding for the other half. We want to have the project completed before the SPNM children’s summer program and vacation Bible school. Please open your hearts to help us fund this very important project. Please make checks payable to Calvary Baptist and write kitchen renovation in the memo section. Thank you so much for your help.
Believe it or not, it’s time to start preparing for the Igelisia Bautista Hispana el Calvario/Calvary Baptist Church Vacation Bible School (VBS) again!
Yes, summer is approaching and that means we need to get ready to minister to the children. Please join us for our first VBS training and informational meeting, Wednesday, March 30, 2016 7 p.m, in the Tomlin Room.
El verano se aproxima y eso quiere decir que tenemos que prepararnos para la Escuela Bíblica Vacacional. Esperando que te unas a servir a los niños de la comunidad y los nuestros siendo voluntario este año en la Escuela Bíblica Vacacional.
After another brief transition in the Youth Ministry leader, our very own Sarah Annmarrie Kamara has stepped up to serve as our new Youth Leader beginning, Sunday, November 1, 2015. We are blessed that the Lord has raised up a leader from within our church who was groomed and nurtured to lead for “Such a time as this (Esther 4:14).”

Saturday, September 24th God blessed us with another enjoyable Family and Friends Movie Night. Our Calvary family was joined by familiar and new faces. This included brothers and sisters in Christ, visiting members of the local community, and even individuals from out of state.
We thank God for Mr. William Watkins Jr., his testimony on the production of the film Veterans of Color, and his offering of spiritual guidance. One of many encouraging words he shared was to pay attention to the people God sends our way as they are the vehicles to the blessing God is providing us.
Keep checking our the website, FB page, and/or newsletters (The Calvary Call) for our next family and friends event.
