Helping to fund the Lord's work through giving for specific causes.

The Calvary Foundation

We Help fund the Lord’s work at calvary Reformed Church through Estate Planning and giving to targeted causes and projects.


1 Timothy 6: 18 -19

Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life.


What Is Estate Planning?

Did you know there are other ways to tithe beyond Sunday morning giving? Estate planning is about providing ways Christians can continue to support the local church, even after they've gone on to glory.
