Redskins Pizza Charity Event

Each year, the Don’s Wood Fired Pizzeria in Cascades, hosts a charity event to support foreign missions.  The charity is Open Hearts International and their focus is to help impoverished people around the world improve their quality of life through academic, vocational and spiritual training.

I’ve been a member of Calvary Temple Church in Sterling VA for over 25 years now.  We are passionate about reaching the lost and encouraging the Believers in our community.  We have many Events throughout the year to spread the Gospel. I hope you find the following story to be a blessing.

The owner of the Don’s Pizzeria, as well as the Board of Directors of Open Hearts International, are all Born Again Believer’s whose primary goal is to spread the gospel and see souls saved.

The Annual Pizza Event is a very popular one due to two primary reasons.  After the free pizza of course.  The first one being the Calvary Temple Children’s Ministry.  The kids put on the world’s smallest Christmas Parade.  Pulling their float tens of feet through the crowds of onlookers lining either side of Southbank Street.  The kids perform several Christmas songs with choreographed dance moves that they practice for weeks.

You may have read about some of their other events like the Leesburg Christmas Parade or the visit to the Sunrise Nursing Home.

The second reason the Pizza Event is very popular is because of the Redskins.  Several members of the team led by Kedric Golston donate their time to not only attend the event, but to serve pizza and soft drinks to the guests.

While the Charity event is not a Calvary Temple hosted event, many of the volunteers are part of the fellowship.  We are always looking for ways we can help each other spread the Gospel.

While 100% of the proceeds from the event go directly to support foreign missions, this is the real focus of the event:

Thank you to Kedric Golston, Alfred Morris, Logan Paulsen, Spencer Long, Shawn Lauvao, Tevita Stevens, and Trent Murphy for your generous support.

Calvary Temple YA

The Calvary Temple young adults were at it again late in 2014 with two exciting events. First in November was the construction and testing of “war machines”.

Each team of 7-8 individuals had to come up with an original idea for a “war machine” that would launch a tennis ball and destroy opposing teams castles, built of paper. The teams were given one week to complete the task and the designs and execution could not have been more different.

Here are a few shots behind the scenes of the construction of one of the war machines:

On November 15th, the war machines were put to the test in the gym at Calvary Temple. Danny’s Christmas elves team outlasted the rest for the victory! Take a look at a few of the teams:
