In response to the effects of COVID-19, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale (CCFL) has been organizing and executing several outreach and relief efforts. On Friday, April 10 at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale the church hosted a drive-thru outreach to pass out a gift, including essential items like hand sanitizer to bless families in the community and those with neighbors in need. Extreme sanitation measures and CDC guidelines were followed when putting the gifts together.
“We have the privilege of giving away over 15,000 hand sanitizers through the generosity of our church family. We believe that Christ has called us to live lives of compassion, and to focus on what we can give and not what we can get” said Paul Walker, Executive Pastor of Ministries, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.
“As Christians, we are called to both courage and generosity. And as a church in this city, it’s a part of our mission to do what we can to serve others, especially during a crisis,” said Doug Sauder, Lead Pastor, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale
CCFL invites the community to get involved so they, too, can offer hope to the most vulnerable. Ways the community can get involved and make a difference are listed online at CalvaryFTL.org/COVID-Outreach. There people can learn more about how they can donate medical supplies, donate food and household supplies, provide relief for hospital workers, donate gift cards, participate in a prayer walk challenge, and/or give online. Everyone is encouraged to check this webpage weekly as new ways to help may be added.
Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale and its regional campuses across south Florida see more than 18,000 people visit weekly. In addition to teaching biblical principles for all aspects of life, they offer multiple ministries to reach our community.
