About Serve Week

At Calvary, we Love the 419 because 1 John 4:19 reminds us that Christ loved us first – and we are to do the same for others. Each summer we set aside a week to work together as a church in our community and love our neighbors in practical and intentional ways!

During the week of July 18 – July 22 we will be working to love the Holland/Springfield area. Sign up for one of our many projects as we landscape, refresh teacher lounges, wash windows, paint, prayer walk, and much more!  No matter your age, schedule, or skill there is a project for you!

Register now for a day that fits your schedule!
Projects begin at 6pm every day.
