Calvary Baptist Church recently presented a plaque to Mr. Donald DePetrillo, owner of The Original Italian Bakery in Johnston, RI. Each month Mr. DePetrillo and his staff provide baked goods donations toward Calvary’s Emergency Food Pantry Ministry. This ministry distributes food to those in need within our neighborhood on the Third Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
This is Savann from Crossroads RI (pictured left) receiving our church’s donations from last December’s Sock Tree! We collected 72 pairs for adults and 57 pairs for youth/children/infants. We also received 5 winter hats and 4 pairs of gloves. Thank you Wendy (pictured right) for dropping off the donations. Thank you donors for supporting the cause. Please continue to pray for those who are still in need.
God lead our sister church, Iglesia Bautista Hispana El Calvario (IBHEC), to initiate the renovation of our Youth Ministry Classroom. They have carried the load in raising funds and providing the supplies for this blessing. The renovation is happening in three phases. Cleaning the room and painting the walls, installing new technology, and laying out the rug. The youth could always use more Bibles and other lesson supplies. Please contact us on ways you can contribute towards the Youth Ministry.
Sunday, October 2nd we celebrated our member, Sarah Brown Kamara, as she recently retired as Superintendent. Auntie Sarah, as family and close friends lovingly call her, thank you again for all the years of hard work, dedication, and love for God you put into everything you did for our children and church. We were blessed to have you leading our children’s Christian education and are still blessed to have you as a member. We love you.
