Calvary Irvine Missions
Scotland:
In 1997 CC Irvine helped send Dan and Patricia Starling to minister in Scotland. After two years of working with Calvary Chapel Motherwell, and another fellowship near Edinburgh, they felt the Lord leading them to begin a work in Danderhall. In the spring of 1999 they started a new church there, Calvary Chapel Fellowship.

In a country that was once a bastion of biblical truth and preaching, today Biblically sound churches are few and far between. The once soft soil has grown hard. But God is faithful, and this new body is growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. They have begun outreach to the community through a school based program called "Scripture Union" that brings the Bible to those little ones who never hear it at home. Calvary Fellowship is also reaching out in various ways to the local communities in and around Edinburgh.

Mexico Outreach Ministry
Calvary Chapel Irvine helps to support an orphange in East Tiajuana called Casa Hogar Dibujando Sonrisa. They are now 5 years old as an orphange and my how the Lord is Blessing. Their needs are still extensive including some of the basics.

Martha de la Rosa is the Director of the orphange and has a most powerful vision. Simply put, She wants to raise these kids in the admonition of Christ so that when they grow up they can go out and affect the City of Tijuana for Christ. WOW. With the help of their church, Agua Vida (Living Water) and Pastor Esteban and several churchs from North of the border they are making great strides in the lives of these precious children.

There are now 40 kids living there and several helpers. Martha's son Daniel and his wife and kids have also come along side as Assistant Director.

We go down to the Orphanage on a monthly basis to bring food, supplies, minister to the children, and provide labor for repairs and building projects. If you would like more information about the orphanage please contact Pastor Bill. Keep checking here for more information as it comes available.

If you would like to make donations of either material or funds they will be accepted. Any checks should bemade out to Calvary Chapel Irvine and anotated for Sonrisa Orphanage. 100% of those fundws will be used for construction, repair and/or supplies. There is always a need for:

Powdered Milk
Laundry Soap
Shampoo and toiletries
Dry goods and non-perishable foods

Unfortunately we are not allowed to bring perishable food or produce of any sort, used cloths, or shoes. Mexican customs will not allow us to bring those itme across the border.

Current projects include:

  • Demolishing walls in the patio area
  • Preparyng to pour a new level concrete patio
  • Repairing the bathrooms upstairs
  • Installing new fixtures in the down stairs bathrooms

If you would like to join us, please see the schedule page for the date and time of our next trip. We meet at 6:30 AM on a Saturday morning in the parking lot of the Community Center at Lake and Alton in Irvine and are usually back to the parking lot around 8 or 9 PM that night.

 

 


We believe that Missions are not part of the church, but that the church is Missions. We have been given the "Great Commission" by Jesus Christ, The Greatest Missionary of All.

Matt 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (NKJV)

Mark 11:17 Then He taught, saying to them, "Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? .....…"

This is our real missions statement. The word "go", can be better rendered, "as you are going". We are not all called to a foreign mission field, but we are all called to missions. And there is no priority on that call. Here is as important as there, near as important as far. And as we are going, here or there, near or far, we must all fulfill the great commission, "to make disciples." We bring people to Jesus, and labor with them and for them that they may grow in Jesus in "all the things" He has commanded us in His word. We encourage you to join us in this vital ministry by praying for "Missions", and becoming involved. Throughout the year we will provide opportunities to join us in action, locally and on the foreign field.
