They are building the playground and community park on their campus to engage their neighbors.

This will be a state of the art playground and they are utilizing their congregation members to help build it. The build with take place on the 19th from 8am until dark, with volunteers helping at different shifts throughout the day.

Calvary is also hosting a 5k on Wednesday, June 20, 2012, to raise money for the upkeep and improvements to this park. You can read more about it on Calvary's website.
