In addition to take home boxes, and online virtual boxes, every year Calvary's OCC team supports a congregation-wide Gift drive for Operation Christmas Child. Calvary Members donate and collect gift items throughout the year to be prepped and packed for shipping in the Fall. By donating to the OCC Support, you help pay for the $9 shipping per box required to send our boxes all over the world so that unreached children can receive a Christmas gift, and more importantly a chance to hear the gospel.

Summer is the time for camps for our elementary through high school students. Yearly camps give our students time away to learn and grow together, through experiences and memories that will last forever. These camps exist and continue because of tireless volunteers and and the donated funds that contribute to the upkeep, improvement, and programming of summer camps.
The Benevolence offering supports a fund that the Calvary Deacons have the access and discretion to use on a case-by-case basis when people come to Calvary seeking financial assistance. Through this fund, the Calvary Deacons have been able to provide food, shelter, a month's rent, or even electric bill payments and other needs for community members and church members alike.
The Benevolence fund is entirely separate from the Calvary General church budget.
Every week, volunteers like you unpack, organize, and distribute food to people from our community as part of the Calvary Food Pantry. But where does all this food come from? Calvary is a partner with Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico, an organization that handles the state-wide logistics, so smaller groups like Calvary can focus on feeding our community.
Each dollar given to the food pantry ministry is spent procuring food to feed the hungry in Las Cruces.
Founded in May of 1919, New Mexico Baptist Children's Home is the longest continuously operating residential childcare facility in New Mexico.

The dedicated Christian staff is focused on the task of encouraging each child to become a well-adjusted and responsible individual. This includes guiding children in their growth physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially.
