HOME AWAY FROM HOME: Building Relationships for Eternity

WHAT WE DO

Outreach to JBLM Warrior Transition Battalion: Eat, Serve & Fellowship (2nd and 4th Thursdays)

During this time, we get together with the soldiers who have been injured in combat and who are currently getting medical attention for their various injuries. This is time to encourage, pray for and fellowship with them and be part of their lives. It is particularly important since they do not typically have family close by. Join us as we serve a meal on Base to these Wounded Warriors. We leave Calvary Chapel of Olympia at 1:30 PM.wtb1

If you would like to contribute to this ministry, you may prepare a dish and drop it off in the south kitchen at Calvary by noon on Thursday. You may also contribute financially the cost of the meal we will be serving to them.

PTSD Support: Individuals/Couples/Groups

One of the unintended consequences of combat is trauma; primarily to the service member, and secondarily to their family. If you are suffering or experiencing this, we would like to be of support to you.  Please call Jesse Stewart (360) 352-4214 x 111 for additional information.

Dozens of families with military connections make Calvary Chapel Olympia their home church.    As our community’s military presence grows, we are also growing our military ministry to offer even greater care and support.  Whether you’re in our community for months or years, there is always a place for you here.
