The destination is has been finalized as God has opened a door in Anchorage, Alaska for this year's Calvary's Impact Mission Team from Calvary Christian School. The team has already had three meetings to prepare to minister to people in the most under reached state in the union. The team is pleased to partner with Grace Works which will run summer ministry programs in some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Anchorage. Not only will the team be running feeding programs, but they will be hosting block parties, and reaching the children and their parents everyday of he week in systematic way through a daily VBS.
All of this to meet the Spiritual and physical needs of the families we work with and teach our students about reaching real, hurting people.
The last day of the trip will be the "fun day" which will include a glacier cruise, hiking on a glacier, or an airplane ride to see majestic Alaska from the sky.
The school community will participate helping raise funds, encouraging our students, and praying for the team. The team will be meeting about twelve times to organize and prepare for this trip. They will even have a shake down retreat to work on their program, get use to being with one another, and do Bible study.
For the past fifteen years, Calvary Christian School has sent teams of middle and high school students on mission trips to reach out to others for the cause of Christ. These trips have included nine international destinations, ground zero in New York City and Appalachia.
These trips are a vital part of the education provided by Calvary Christian School and help shape the Christian world view our students as they gain important insights into cultures, people, and ministry. Key skills are also imparted during training in the area of communication skills, team work, Bible study, and creativity in reaching out for the Lord.
