Our Missions and Community Outreach

“As every man hath received the gift,

even so, minister the same one to another,

as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”

1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)

We know that none of us can do everything alone. As individuals coming together in a community, we need each other and the partnerships we make to serve God inside the church, outside of it, in our local communities, and beyond. Working together as a church gives us the opportunity to witness together, and enjoy shared prayer, study, and experiences. We strive to live by Christ’s example to love, encourage, and grow together as we all walk together in Christ’s footsteps.

Prayer Chain:

Could you, or someone you know use some prayer on their behalf? We all go through challenges in our lives, and these burdens are lighter when they are carried together, and with God. We currently have a team of 16 who pray for those requested, and all requests are kept in confidence.

For items to be added to the Prayer Chain, please email prayerchain@calvinhalifax.ca or speak to Allison Power (902-445-9161). Please ensure you have permission from the individual to have their name added to the list. Updates are also appreciated!


Our Pastoral Care Team

If you know someone in the congregation who could benefit from hearing from their Church Family, please contact Kaitlyn Power (calvinhalifax@bellaliant,com or 902-455-7435).  Cards will be sent from the pastoral care team to those who are identified as grieving, celebrating a special occasion, or a “Thinking of You” or “Get Well” wish.
