“Making Disciples. Empowering Leaders. Multiplying Churches.” You see this on the wall whenever you set foot in the Worship Center in Boulder, Erie, or Thornton. It’s the vision behind ministry at Calvary. For the Heart of Advent this year we’re looking to that vision as we focus on efforts to multiply churches locally and globally.

This year for the Heart of Advent we are going to intentionally focus on this value. We started the Heart of Advent twelve years ago to encourage the people of Calvary to “Spend Less, Give More, and Worship Fully”. It is easy to be caught up in the commercialism of the Christmas season; giving to others helps us remember the great gift God has given in Jesus, who was born so that he could one day save us from our sins. The Heart of Advent has been an opportunity to invest in local and global ministry that does just that.


Locally, we will support Front Range Church Planting Network (FRCPN). By supporting FRCPN we are joining dozens of other churches across the Front Range who collaborate to help new church planters succeed. FRCPN works with church planters to understand the needs in our area, coach and care for them, and connect those church planters to established churches in the area. We love the Church, and we believe more churches are needed in the Front Range to reach all types of people, and partnering with FRCPN will help make that happen.


In the global community, we will assist our partner Horizons International as they minister to people in Ukraine. There is desperate need amidst the ongoing conflict. Horizons International is working with a network of Ukrainian churches to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people displaced by war in that country, combining gospel-centered humanitarian aid with training and support that helps churches and believers to effectively share the gospel and make disciples.


Finally, your gifts towards the Heart of Advent will be used in Calvary’s continually ongoing efforts to make disciples, empower leaders, and multiply churches right here at Calvary. One way we multiply the church is by allowing other churches, schools, ministries, and communities to use our facilities. The staff and volunteers of Calvary’s ministries are always working hard to fulfill our mission and vision as well. By making repairs and updates to our facilities, and by funding the ongoing work and new initiatives of our ministries, we will continue doing the work of Jesus in our communities.

Thank you for considering giving generously to our vision of multiplying the church at home, in our communities, and globally this Advent season.
