Event Details

On August 3 Calvary will be partnering with Hunting Park United for their Hunting Park Family Fun & Fitness Day. Calvary will be volunteering with the dental van and numerous park activities!

 

The event will include:

  • Thriathlon (scaled down, fun, & for the whole family!)
  • Resource Fair
  • Live Entertainment / music
  • Children's Activities
  • and much more!

 

ALL VOLUNTEER INFO:

  • There are 3 shifts, 7:00am-11:30am to help with the triathlon, 10:00am-1:00pm, or 1:00pm-4:30pm for dental and park volunteers. You are welcome to volunteer for multiple shifts
  • Transportation will NOT be provided
  • There is no “official” carpool, but if you would like to ride together with others or follow someone down to Hunting Park,  meet at Calvary's steeple entrance at 6:00am for the first shift, 9:00am for the second shift, and 12:00pm for the third shift
  • Parking lots in the park will be closed off so please park near farmer's market or on Old York Road. More information will follow
  • Dress- please do not wear the Calvary fingerprint shirts; we want to fit in, not stand out. It's going to be a hot day so dress appropriately for the weather
  • When you arrive for your shift meet at the tent next to the dental van (you won't be able to miss it!) for check-in and orientation
  • Assignments will be given upon arrival
  • We will provide bottled water
  • Flexibility is key!!

KEY ITEMS:

We are representing Hunting Park United, not Calvary Church

People will not know us as Calvary Church. With that in mind, we need to be respectful to how Hunting Park United runs things and what they want their presence to be in the community. They “live” in this community and are trying to build lasting relationships with the people in the area. This is not an evangelism trip in the way Calvary has done things in the past. We need to spread the love of Jesus, not by our words, but by our actions. Just talking to and playing with the kids and people in the community will go a long way.  We want people to see us as part of the community, not as outsiders.

 

Flexibility will be key on Saturday

This is our second event with Hunting Park United. Everyone is bringing their own expectations and ideas to the day so it could look very different than we all envisioned once we get there. How you volunteer or what you end up doing may be different than what you signed up for. We have to follow the lead from the people running the event. If you have any questions, need clarification, or have concerns, please find Karen Peazzoni. She will do her best to get things cleared up and resolved for you.
