4th Friday Celebrations are Community Block Parties held on the fourth Friday of each month, April though September. As visitors stroll down Uptown’s brick streets during a 4th Friday, they see street vendors, live entertainment and children’s activities nestled among Uptown’s quaint eateries and unique shops. This is also a fantastic opportunity for the people of Calvary to hang out with the people of our community and to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ with our neighbors.
Every month Calvary partners with THE BETTER WAY to minister to the poor and homeless of Columbus.
For the last 25 years, THE BETTER WAY has stood as a place of hope in the “Short North” district of Columbus’ inner city. Since 1986, over 400,000 people have come through our doors seeking physical and spiritual assistance.
THE BETTER WAY REACHES OUT TO MEET THE SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL NEEDS OF PEOPLE MIRED IN URBAN POVERTY… the distressed… the disadvantaged… and the disregarded… those who society pushes aside. We reach out through community action, educating and equipping people through life-changing programs and nurturing healthy relationships in a Christian environment.
H2O is a church located on the campus of The Ohio State University. OSU is one of the largest universities in the United States and hosts students from all over the world. Calvary supports Dan Luk, a member of the churches leadership team. Please pray for H2O as they seek to impact Christ by reaching the students of OSU.
