Our police department protects our city population of roughly 67,000 people by its 88 officers. The police department consist of 5 different bureaus. Our church is provided with a list from the Chief of the department, of officers that are interested in this program.
Our prayers are mainly threefold: 1) their safety, 2) their good judgment, and 3) for them to return home every day. The prayers typically don’t stop there. We find that we are praying for their husbands, wives, children, boyfriends, girlfriends, parents, etc. We have had good success thus far. Prayer can be done as a family or by an individual, however the prayer participant must try to pray for these officers for one year. If you are interested and would like to be added as a prayer partner, or require additional information, please email our church at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (406) 799-9434.
Our church has a vendor booth at our local Farmers Market located at Whittier Park (south of the Civic Center). We provide anyone with free resources such as Bibles, tracts, and Calvary magazines. We also offer them free bottled water. Our hope is that we get God’s Word into their hands; converse with people; offer to pray with them; and ultimately introduce them to Jesus. If you are interested in participating (June thru Sept), contact or email our church at email@example.com or call at (406) 799-9434.
In Street Prayer ministry we generally go into the downtown area, walk the streets and offer to pray with individuals we encounter. (James 5:14-16) The response has been very positive, as there is a great need for prayer (people tell us) in these uncertain times. We also go to the Rescue Mission area and talk and pray with people in sharing the love of Jesus. Several have accepted an invitation to come to church and will attend from time to time. We pray God will continue to move in their lives and hearts.
The people in our fellowship have been very generous in donating clothing (especially winter clothes here in Montana) and food supplies for our Food and Clothing Ministry. We collect these items and distribute them when the need is made known to us. We’re also mindful of those needs as part of our street ministry. It’s another opportunity to pray with and for someone. (Matthew 25:40) We’re working on something we’ll call Monday Meals and Ministry where we hope to meet on Monday evenings downtown to provide a simple meal (soup, bread, etc.) to anyone who might have a need, and of course pray with them.
Our Pastor serves as a Chaplain in our local Great Falls Police Department. During this time, he’s had several opportunities for prayer with a Police Officer or a member of the community. In addition, we have developed a ministry to commit prayer for an assigned Police Officer for one year. We pray for their safety, protection, wisdom, strength, and peace. (Matt 5:9; Romans 13:1-4; 1 Tim 2:1,2)
On the last Sunday of each month we go the Grace Home to cook and serve dinner to the resident veterans. It’s a great opportunity for conversation, prayer, and to show our appreciation for their past service to our nation.
The desire and intent of our Ministry of Hope is to serve those who have a need, including widows and orphans (James 1:27). As an example, we can assist the single mother who needs a minor car or household repair, or the elderly man who might have a difficult time mowing his lawn, or the young person who needs some help moving into a new home. Our hearts desire is to serve as Jesus would serve (Mark 10:45) by assisting those who have a need, so that in turn they see and hear about the hope of Jesus.
If you have a need and require assistance, please don’t hesitate to let us know how we can help. Below is a request form that you can submit to the church. Please describe in detail what the request is so that we can make sure we have the correct resources to support your request.
My heart’s desire for the Youth Ministry is to encourage the kids to grow in grace and knowledge of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and to see them rooted and grounded in the Word of God. As a teacher, my responsibility is not to entertain the youth, but to preach the Gospel to a generation in need of Jesus.
As Jeremiah wrote in Lamentations 2:19 “”…pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward Him for the life of your young children, who faint from hunger at the head of every street.” I believe this to be just as true today.
This generation is growing up seeking and hungering to fill the void in their lives that no amount of social media, financial gain and me-first philosophy can ever do. Only the love of Jesus can ever fill this void.
The cares of this world will sweep this next generation away if they are not taught the simple truth of the Gospel. My heart is to see each and every young person has a vibrant and intimate relationship with Jesus. When the trials come they can be confident in the hope that is found in the blessedness of our Savior.
While we don’t believe that marriage is a ministry, we do believe that marriage can be a direct reflection of our relationship with Jesus. We believe that the Bible is clear in providing us with the direction necessary to understand God’s will for our lives and marriages. We further adhere to the belief that God has ordained marriage between man and woman and that Jesus is to be the Chief Cornerstone of every marriage. How we live our lives as married couples can minister to others by our example.
Therefore we encourage married couples, and those who are engaged to be married, to dedicate a time of fellowshipping with us at our monthly get together. We meet the 3rd Thursday of the month to encourage one another through fellowship and time spent in God’s Word. By this we anticipate growing together as we seek Jesus in the heart of every marriage. We encourage you to come and join us.
Each member of a family has a role to fill. We believe men need to be the leaders in the home, and in church. Therefore, it’s imperative to build up men who are actively involved in becoming men of God. To that end, we encourage men to participate in various church related ministries and our weekly Bible study. As believers in Christ, we need to equip the men of our body and the future generation to lead as Christ would desire us to. We understand and know that life’s daily pressures can often weigh heavily on us. It is our goal to fellowship, serve, encourage and set an example for one other. Iron does indeed sharpen iron. The Apostle Paul declared that he belonged to and served God (Acts 27:23), therefore we encourage men to have the same dedication to Jesus that they too can show in their lives that they belong to Jesus.
God has really blessed us here at Calvary Chapel Cascade County in 2017, and is beginning to use our fellowship in some wonderful and exciting ways.
