CALVARY CONNECTING COMMUNITY
2020 Drive-by Community Flu Clinic
Calvary Temple strives to make great efforts to give back to the neighborhoods. The most incredible opportunity of serving the community is to seek lost souls and win them over to Christ through outreach, discipleship, and evangelism. Our utmost desire is to reach, teach and unleash for the Glory of God.
During the last quarter of 2020, the church team members organized and implemented various activities. On December 1st, Calvary Temple, with the unified assistants from Bon Secours Hospital, Instructive Visiting Nursing Assistant (IVNA), and the Petersburg Sheriff’s Department, sponsored a Free Drive-by Flu Clinic. The Petersburg Sports Complex accommodated the drive-by clinic. The event was an overall success, and we look forward to presenting this service to the community in September 2021.
An extraordinary “Thank You” to Senator Joseph R. Morrissey and Vice Mayor Annette Smith-Lee, for their time and commitment to this community service project, and “Thank You” to DJ Lloyd Taylor for offering holiday cheer through the sounds of music. This project would not have been successful without the support of the community and all volunteers.
The outreach team also sponsored two separate coat drives for the upcoming holiday. The Women’s Shelter received new coats and over fifty (50) plus toys for the children. Pleasant Lane Elementary school received thirty-two new and gently used coats for the children. The outreach team also received monetary gifts to purchase additional coats. We look forward to our continued partnership with Pleasant Lane Elementary school and the Petersburg community’s future opportunities.
District Elder Wesley M. Taylor, Jr., Sr. Pastor, believes it is vitally essential for the church to connect with the community and lead the way in a labor of love beyond the building walls. He is not new to the City of Petersburg nor Community Initiatives. He believes that through the collective efforts of church leadership, local citizens, and civic leaders, the community can remain healthy and strong.
