Why We Serve

Calvary Tuscaloosa believes we exist to serve the community within our church and the community that surrounds us. We do that through opportunities  on our connect team as well as serving in our community, nation, and around the world. If you would like to know more about these opportunities,  check out the ways that you can serve in the church and be sent from the church. 

Serving Inside the Walls

Join our Connect Team

Our “Connect Team” is all of our serve teams combined! At Calvary, we believe that it is vitally important for people to be connected (especially through serving)! One of the ways we get to play a role in that is by serving inside the local church. We have opportunities for all passions, skills, and spiritual gifts to be used for the glory of God. But if you are saying to yourself… I don’t see a team that fits me. TELL US. We would love to work with you to create another serve team, that allows you to serve faithfully and connect with others.

Serving Outside the Walls

Through Acts 1:8 Partners, Mission Trips, and Serve Days

Calvary started the Acts 1:8 Fund in 2012 to help our church dramatically increase financial gifts to missions and increase personal participation in missions giving. Since its inception, nearly $700,000 has been given through the Acts 1:8 Fund. These local, state, and international organizations are chosen by our Missions Council, who spend hours discussing and prayerfully determining which organizations the fund will support yearly. All money given to the Acts 1:8 Fund supports these organizations.

To see how each dollar given is distributed, visit To give to the Acts 1:8 Fund, designate Acts 1:8 on your check/giving envelope or give at To know more about our partners email us at
