The Cooperative Program
Through the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention, Calvary Baptist members financially support the on-going work of the Lee Country Baptist Association and the Mississippi and Southern Baptist Conventions. these funds provide for Christian education of ministers and missionaries, retreats and camps for church members, safe havens and homes for children, and salaries and equipment for missionaries.
Men from Calvary go to the Lee County Jail every week to help lead Bible study and worship, distribute literature and just listen as the men there share their many needs. Our church time is 11:00AM to 12:00AM at the LCJ Adult Center on Sunday and 7:00PM to 8:00PM at the Juvenile Detention Center on Thursday night.

Each Monday morning at 8:30 a small group of Calvary women take the flowers which have been used on Sunday and remember someone who needs a gift of love. We invite more ladies (and men!) to join us either to arrange or deliver (deliveries may be made later in the day on Monday).
