120 Bags of Blessings and Love
In the spirit of continuing the 120th anniversary celebration of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church (1900-2020), the Social Action Ministry and members of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church joined together to create Bags of Blessings and Love. Members donated individually wrapped snacks items that were assembled into gallon bags. The bags were so filled with love items that they were difficult to close at time. The goal was to create 120 bags. However, due to the overwhelming support of MCBC members, the Social Action Ministry was able to donate 220+ Blessing Snack Bags. We were able to donate the snack bags to Janie and Ida’s House of Hope, Covenant House, Lost-n-Found Youth Shelter, Foster Families c/o Inspiring Scholars (five families), Carrie Steele Pitts Home, City of Refuge and Fulton County Department of Family and Children Services (Fairburn Rd.) Thanks to members who donated pre-assembled snack bags and to everyone who gave and gave and gave and asked if we needed anything else. You have our (the Social Action Ministry) heartfelt gratitude for helping to make this a blessing to people in our community. MCBC is A Beacon of Light in the Adamsville community and is living out it’s mission and vision statement to impact the lives of our community members. The Social Action Ministry also thanks our precious jewel Lady Stowers and Amari Lockhart who helped us organize and put items into bags. YOUR LOVE IS SHOWING MCBC even in this Covid-19 pandemic. The ministry of the gospel and showing love will not be hindered!!! To God be the Glory!
Springing with Love
The Women of Mount Calvary Ministry celebrate Women’s History month and the beginning of Spring.
Using the theme “Springing Love”, the WOMC provided love baskets to 12 sick or shut-in ladies of the church. The baskets were loaded with daily essentials, personal protective equipment, and spiritual favors. They were decorated with spring colors designed to uplift. Remembering 1 Corinthians 13:13 Faith, Hope and Love in this season!
Drive Through Communion
During the Covid-19 health pandemic, Pastor Stowers with the assistance of MCBC Associate Ministers and Deacons, continued to meet the spiritual needs of our members by providing drive through communion each month. Immediately after our live stream video worship, members were invited to drive through the church parking lot. Pastor Stowers spoke the words of communion to each member as they remembered the Lord's Supper and then ate and drank as Jesus commanded us to do in remembrance of Him. With her mask on, Lady Stowers greeted members as they exited the parking lot.
