Supported Ministries


Homebound Ministry

We have a number of older members and friends of Calvary who can no longer attend services and need a special touch from the church family. Our homebound ministry offers the opportunity to be blessed by the wisdom and heritage of our shut-in and infirm members. This can be a family project. Monthly visits and special recognition (birthdays, holidays, etc.) are the key elements to this ministry.

Calvary Jail Ministry_edited-1

Jail Ministry

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.

Ladies from our church have partnered with ladies from Mount Sinai Baptist Church to go in pairs to the Juvenile Detention Center each Thursday night to have Bible lessons with the young female inmates. We go into the area where the girls are housed and share with them God’s forgiveness, his love, and the plan of salvation.  As the opportunity arises, we pray and share with parents who are waiting to pick up or visit their children.

Loving Hands

Loving Hands is a church wide ministry that coordinates meals to Calvary members who have lost loved ones. This ministry can be a tremendous blessing to you as well as the family you serve. There are many ways to serve as a member of this team. We have monthly coordinators, cooks, setup and servers, clean up crews, paper goods providers, and flower arrangers.
If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, contact the church office at info@calvarytupelo.com

 Women on Mission

A joint general meeting is held the first Tuesday of each month October through May at 11:00 a.m. in the Family Ministry Center. Individual groups meet spearately at various times during the month.



Bouquets of Blessings

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).

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.

In addition, Calvary members can also participate in targeted offerings for the Mississippi Baptist Children’s Village, Mississippi State Missions (Margaret Lackey Offering), North American missions (Annie Armstrong Offering), and International Missions (Lottie Moon Offering).
