Opportunities to Serve

From large community events to weekly classes to updating the church building, people who answer the call to serve are Calvary's heartbeat. Without dedicated people who share their time and talents, we could not be the church we desire to be. Whether we recognize them (yet) or not, God has given us all gifts to serve, and each gift is important and unique. Below is a list of needs that Calvary has along with the specific coordinator's contact information. Keep in mind that many of these opportunities require an interview and/or screening process. 


If you know of other needs, or if you’re not sure how to get started, please contact the church office at pastors@cbclascruces.org. A Calvary team member will contact you.
