This Sunday, Sept. 8, is Calvary’s Fall Kickoff! Join us in worship for a celebratory beginning to the fall worship schedule with the return of the Calvary Chancel choir, the beginning of a new KidsChurch season, a blessing for our KidsChurch teachers, and a blessing of backpacks for our students. All kids are invited to bring their backpacks. Then, stay after the service for a Fellowship Lunch – brats and hotdogs provided, members asked to bring potluck style side dishes to share.
A new sermon series begins this Sunday titled “Holy Discontent.” Join us for this fall series as we consider what it means to be Jesus’ disciples desiring justice for a broken world. While we give thanks for all God has given, and rejoice in our new life, we continue to pray that God’s kingdom would be made known to us in our lives, and that our world would more fully align with
The next Voters Assembly will be held on Sunday, September 22nd following worship. Lunch will be provided, Calvary members invited and encouraged to attend.
Two Baptisms are planned for September, for Sybil Middaugh (Pastor Mike and Sandi) on Sunday, September 15th, and a private baptism for Thaddeus Lau (Clare and Tim) on Saturday, September 14th in the Chapel (which will also be recognized on the 15th). Please welcome, encourage, and support the families of these two children as we see them in the coming weeks.
