LOVE OUT LOUD

Serve In The Community

“Love Out Loud” is simply asking God to use us as a body of believers in Jesus Christ to express His love through serving those in our community in our daily lives. Unfortunately, many of us have given non-believers a wrong idea of what Jesus is all about. We desire that God would use us to change that through unconditional, practical acts of service that are:

 

  • Spirit-Led
  • Love-Motivated
  • Relationship-Based

HOW DO WE LOVE OUT LOUD?

SPEED BOATS

Personal and Family everyday outreaches. These are easy to do and have little to no preparation and organization to them. Because of this, this type of outreach constitutes the bulk of what we do at Calvary Omaha.

YACHTS

CK Groups (Calvary Small Groups) outreaches. These are also fairly simple to do, but require a little more planning and organization. We encourage our CK groups to always be praying for these opportunities as God leads.

CRUISE BOATS

Churchwide outreaches. These are harder to pull off, but can be very cool. They typically demand a great deal of organization and planning.  As a result, this type of outreach occurs less often.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION:
» Buy someone’s coffee, lunch, gas, etc.
» Clean out neighbor’s trash can, shovel their driveway, etc.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION:
» Make meals for a co-worker that is ill or going through a tough season.
» Help a friend or family member move.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION:
» Serve Easter dinner at Open Door Mission.
» Serve at Abide Spring Cleanup.

SERVE AT CALVARY

Calvary Omaha exists to equip loving, self-feeding, replicating servants throughout the Omaha area and beyond. We believe that this vision can only be accomplished by God working through ALL who call Calvary their church home. Just like in athletics, the military, or in music, each person needs to play their part for the team to be successful.

CTEAMS are all the available volunteer teams at Calvary for you to jump into, using your God given gifts to serve God and bless others. Get off the bench and into the game today!

The “Servant Equipping Stages” are designed for anyone who desires to join a CTEAM.
