Volunteering in Muskegon

We encourage everyone who is a part of Calvary’s family to find ways to serve our community, either together with your LIFEgroup, with friends, as a family, or on your own. Below are several community organizations that can help you find new ways to serve those around you!

  • PRAYMUSKEGON

    We work with 30+ other churches in Muskegon to cover our county in a 24/7 "prayer shield." Calvary prays on the 6th of every month, so it's our goal to have 24 people commit to praying during the same one-hour slot every time the 6th rolls around. Sign up for a slot online. If praying for an hour sounds difficult, start with 15 minutes and work your way up. We will email you a prayer guide each month to help.

  • supper house

    Supper House, a ministry of MAP, provides more than a meal. Many guests come because it is their only meal of the day, but others come out of loneliness, hungering for a friend and listening heart. Most volunteers come to serve, but some have found their place at the table, sharing a meal and stories with those they serve and finding their souls fed by this experience. Calvary serves on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Contact Chris Postma (616.366.6095) for more info.

  • ADOPT-A-LOT

    Vacant lots hurt neighborhoods. Uncut grass and uncollected garbage ruin the value of property and the morale of the neighbors. Thanks to an initiative of the Nelson Neighborhood Association, we've "adopted" the vacant lot at 1357 Park. We clean up in the spring, mow in the summer and rake in the fall. Our goal is to add beauty and value to the neighborhood while getting to know the neighbors. Contact Marcus Syriac (231.769.0443) for more info.

  • BAKER COLLEGE

    Navigating the murky waters of post-high school life is both terrifying and exciting. Every young adult needs someone with whom they can share the joys and the worries. That's why we are excited about investing in students at Baker College. Cross-Stitched, our on-campus group, meets every week for encouragement, but our goal is to connect these students to our church family who can walk alongside them. To learn how you can invest, contact Jeremy Sandison (jeremy@calvarymuskegon.com).

  • Community Encompass

    Community enCompass is a Christian Community Development Organization for the core-city neighborhoods of Muskegon. Our mission is to empower neighbors and build community in the core city neighborhoods by sharing God's love, as we walk alongside neighbors, seeking justice and a better quality of life for all through long-term, sustainable changes.

  • Muskegon pregancy SERVICES

    Muskegon Pregnancy Services works to make the abortion option unthinkable in the Muskegon community due to the educational, emotional, physical, and spiritual services provided to those who face uncertainty or crisis during pregnancy. You can get involved in many ways - from getting trained to be an advocate, volunteering in the office, helping with maintenance around the facilities, having a yard sale or baby shower, or even donating new or gently used baby items. Many opportunities to impact lives eternally, one (or two) at a time!

  • Love, INC

    Love INC brings local churches together in order to fulfill our mission: “Transforming Lives In the Name of Christ Through the Church.” After volunteers connect our neighbors in need to our partner pantries, the real ministry begins by inviting them to attend church, praying with them, or giving them information about programs and services. Together we help our neighbors become self-sufficient by extending a "hand up" and show Christ's love with words and actions.

  • Muskegon Rescue Mission

    From the time the Mission was established, it has provided food, shelter, clothing and spiritual direction to those in need. By relieving the immediate needs of our hurting neighbors, the Mission is able to address the root cause of their distress and offer the spiritual nourishment necessary to effect true and lasting change. Our objective is to bring people to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, thus bringing them to dependence upon God and independence within society.
