For over a decade, Calvary has embraced the spirit of giving during the Christmas season through our annual Heart of Advent initiative. Our unwavering vision has been to inspire a heartfelt worship of Christ, encouraging a shift from self-indulgence to selflessness, and fostering generosity both locally and globally.

Throughout the Heart of Advent seasons, together with our local and global partners, we have achieved impactful milestones, such as launching churches in Sudan, Lebanon, and the Front Range, providing education for pastors and professors in Haiti, and opening our Thornton Campus. We’ve also been actively involved in supporting refugees, extending assistance to individuals in Ukraine, and standing alongside families affected by the Marshall fire.

In partnership with local and global ministries, we’ve not only addressed pressing needs but also shared the hope of Jesus during the Christmas season. Together, we’ve made a meaningful impact, reflecting the true spirit of giving and compassion.

This year, we'll focus on efforts together in two areas:

Locally | Habitat for Humanity

Locally, the need for attainable housing is a significant issue. Today one in seven families in Colorado are spending 50 perfect or more of their income on housing. One of our long-term local partners, Habitat for Humanity, continues to pave the way in helping families to build and improve places that they can call home. Habitat is actively working on attainable housing projects in Boulder, the Saint Vrain Valley, and Adams County.

Our relationship with Habitat for Humanity stretches back more than 20 years. We have seen tangible results in the lives of people and families through their work, and through the many projects where we have partnered. This year, we will give together so that home foundations can be poured for several active build projects. Each foundation costs around 18 thousand dollars. Throughout the next year, there will be giving opportunities to support those build projects.

Globally | Our Global Missionary Partners

Globally, the escalating costs have significantly affected our global partners—families dedicated to serving God in regions such as Asia, Romania, the Middle East, Haiti, and Africa. This holiday season, we would like to uplift and bless these families by providing an extra gift to inspire and support them in their ongoing ministry in many challenging locations. As you contribute to the heart of advent this season, we invite you to join us in extending a hand of prayer for these global partners, asking for God’s continued blessings on their efforts to spread love and share the message of Christ with those who yearn to experience the love of God.

Our goal for this year’s Heart of Advent is to raise 100 thousand dollars to give to both our local and global communities.

Jesus came that first Christmas to meet the greatest need the world has ever known. To be the light in the darkness and to reconcile humans with the God of the Universe. We have been called to join Him in His mission to reach even the darkest corners of the world. Calvary, thank you for your generosity towards this annual Heart of Advent mission. We are grateful for your partnership as we continue to care for these needs in our communities and our world in the name of our newborn King, Jesus.

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