Red Wagon Sundays are the first and third Sundays of each month. Members and guests fill the “little red wagon” (located in the sanctuary) with non-perishable food items that are delivered to the United Community Ministries food pantry. Contact Barbara with any questions!
Be the Kingdom Sundays is one of those ideas that started as a small “seed” and has become a bi-annual Calvary tradition. Two Sundays a year, we gather in work clothes at our regular 10:00 AM worship time for a “sending” prayer and a hymn, and then disperse to to worship through serving our corner of Alexandria’s Route 1 corridor. Our projects have included cleaning and painting affordable housing units, working in a local park, making sandwiches for the homeless, stuffing “Mended Heart” pillows for recovering surgery patients, making soup for the ill and grieving, and assembling hygiene kits that are distributed to disaster-stricken areas through the PC (USA) Disaster Assistance Program. The day concludes with pizza in the fellowship hall followed by Communion. (Link to BTK page with ministries.) Our “BTK” Sundays typically take place in the middle of October and the Sunday after Easter. Barbara will be able to answer any questions you have about our “Be the Kingdom” Sunday.
