GCH Catherine Kids


Catherine’s Kids (formerly Grace Children’s Home)

Date: September 25-26, 2021
Cost: $135 adult / $85 children 18 & under (must be accompanied by adult)

Catherine’s Kids (formerly known as Grace Children’s Home) is a ministry and place of refuge for orphaned, neglected, or abused children just outside Tijuana, Mexico. At the end of 2019, GCH joined with Catherine’s Kids (a special needs orphanage in Rosarito, Mexico). Calvary sends teams to serve at Catherine’s Kids to first and foremost show the love of Christ to the children and be an encouragement to the staff. Weekend trips include relational time with the children in the boys and girls homes (most of whom speak English), games, crafts and pizza parties. At the special needs home, teams also have relational time with the children by playing games and spending quality time together. The teams also help with any projects that need to be completed on the property. Sponsors have the opportunity to visit their child and celebrate milestones and trips offer an opportunity for greater relational connections. Catherine’s Kids trips are a great opportunity for individuals or families wanting to take a first step into missions.

Baton Rouge, LA

Angola Prison 
Awana Lifeline • Prison Ministry
Dates: May, 2022
Cost: $1,400 per person 

In partnership with Malachi Men and Awana Lifeline, our Calvary team helps support Prison ministries including Hannah’s Gift (Women’s Prison) Graduation and Returning Hearts Celebration at Angola Prison.  Returning Hearts Celebration, is an event that unites children with their fathers for an unforgettable day of games, food, relationship building and Bible teaching. One day each year, these fathers can be ‘real’ parents to their kids. Children are invited to come and spend the day with their father’s, who often use the time to share with their children about Jesus.  Most importantly, they have the opportunity to reconcile with their children by asking their forgiveness and inviting them to accept Christ’s offer of salvation. This begins the healing process, breaking the power of sin and the cycle of crime. Short-term trip participants serve by coming alongside one dad and his child/children to assist throughout the day!
