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

kitchen-2Our 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.
