MISSIONS

The call to missions is a vital part of CBC’s overall strategy for preaching the Gospel to the entire world. We support mission work around the globe in various capacities.
 
In 2014 we commissioned a missionary couple to go to the Pacific Rim where we have adopted an Unengaged Unreached People Group (UUPG). In 2017, the Rice Mountain People were officially moved from the UUPG list to the UPG (Unreached People Group) list by the International Mission Board of the SBC. Calvary continues its mission to the Rice Mountain People in the Pacific Rim today with the goal of removing them from the UPG list. You can read the story of our vision trip in the SBTexan.

Added to this work, CBC has also adopted four IMB missionary families who serve in various locations around the world; and a little closer to home, one of our own is serving as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. We have another family in our church family actively involved in mission work in Montenegro. They plan on making this a full time mission endeavor in the Fall  of 2019. Check out this informative brochure to find out more about their work, or check out their website at www.gtomn.com.  If you would like to financially support this mission endeavor, click here.  They will be hosting a Fundraiser Golf Tournament Saturday, May 18th at Oak Hurst Golf Course.

As for local mission work, we’re involved in the Jesus Closet Ministry,  sharing the Gospel with the homeless, transient and marginalized people of Tyler through supplying their need for toiletries.
 
Here are ways you can be involved:
1.  Help collect travel size toiletry items and place in the bin located in the missions corner of the Worship Center.
2.  Help pass out items and share God’s love on Saturday mornings at 8:45.
3.  Pray that this ministry will be used to encourage those in need as well as provide an opportunity to share Christ’s hope.
4.  If you are not able to be involved on Saturday mornings, but would still like to serve using your time during the week, contact the church office at 903-939-3200.
