Dare to Care

What is "Dare to Care"?

For many years, the Dare to Care offering has been an annual tradition at Calvary Church. It is our opportunity to show our gratitude for God’s goodness to us by giving money to those in need off of our shores. The recipients of this year’s offering are Lillian Solt at CEDCAS who provide "whole person" care to a large squatter community called Guararí who have fled from the conflict Nicaragua to Costa Rica and Suresh Vemulaplli's India Village Ministries which meets the physical and spiritual needs of needy widows and orphans in India.
