Child Abuse Ministry

A blue pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse.

“But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven’ “ (Matt. 19: 14).

Calvary Chapel Ocean Gateway supports the Wicomico Child Advocacy Center, a 501(c)(3) charity.  The Center, which is located at 310 Calvert St., Salisbury, MD  21801, (410) 334-6951, http://www.wicomicosheriff.com/pages/adm-childadvocacy.htm processes 850-1500 abused children annually.

These children have been rescued from situations of physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect.  Some have been victims of human trafficking.  The Opioid Crisis is driving the numbers upward.

Calvary Chapel provides the Center with diapers, children’s clothing, toys, and other necessary items. Our members will be sponsoring children in foster care for summer camp.  We plan a Back-to-School Drive, and a Coat Drive later in the year.

Anna Waldherr is our Child Abuse Ministry Coordinator.
