Ministry Fair this Sunday (9/28)
We believe that some of the best Christian growth happens when people get connected to opportunities for serving others! So this Sunday (September 28), we’ll be holding a Ministry Fair from 9:30 to 10 o’clock in the morning (between our Uplift Contemporary Worship Gathering and Sunday School). Join us in the Fellowship Hall to discover new ways that you can put your God-given abilities to good use. Coffee and donuts will be served.
New Church Directory
We want everyone who participates in the life of Calvary to be part of our new church directory! Directory photos will be taken by LifeTouch representatives on September 25, 26 and 27; and October 2, 3 and 4. You can reserve a photo session by stopping by the sign-up table in the sanctuary lobby on Sunday mornings, or by using the LifeTouch online scheduling tool.
Mid-Week Ministries for Fall 2014
Calvary’s full schedule of Wednesday night activities is now up and running! The night kicks off with a fellowship meal at 5:45 PM followed by Christian growth opportunities for all ages at 6:30 PM. Children’s activities include Mission Friends (for preschoolers), AIM – Abide in Me (for grade-school girls), and RA’s – Royal Ambassadors (for grade-school boys). Adult study options include:
- The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life (Facilitated by Jan Varney). This study will show how to get healthier by using the five essentials of faith, food, fitness, focus and friends.
- Nurturing Faith (Facilitated by Gray Shelton). This study provides a traditional weekly Bible study option rooted in one of our Sunday morning curricula.
- 1000 Gifts (Facilitated by Jill Cawley). This study is based on Ann Voskamp’s recent book and will focus on the powerful impact of gratitude in our lives.
Remember, too, that our Mid-Week Ministry line-up includes Handbell Choir rehearsal at 6:30 PM and Adult Choir rehearsal at 7:15 PM.
Blood Drive at Calvary
Calvary’s Young Adult Sunday School class will sponsor a Blood Drive on Sunday, September 21st from 11 AM to 3:30 PM. Hot dogs and Speedy Chef treats will be available for donors in the canteen. Please contact Ashley Mills if you’d like to make an appointment.
Youth Fundraising Lunch
On Sunday, September 14th, Calvary’s youth ministry will sponsor a spaghetti lunch in the Fellowship Hall right after our Traditional worship gathering to get a head start on raising money for next summer’s mission trip. Everyone is encouraged to join us for a good meal, good fellowship, and a good show of support for our student ministry.
Acts of Blessing
As the summer ends and we begin a fresh season of ministry here at Calvary, our classes and other groups are encouraged to be on the lookout for potential “Acts of Blessing” – those acts of service that allow us to make a difference in the lives of our members and our community. If your class or group performs an Act of Blessing, please share it with the rest of us using one of the “A-B Honor Roll” sheets, which are located in Sunday School boxes and in literature racks around the church. This will encourage others to seek opportunities for ministry and will let us all celebrate what God is doing through Calvary Baptist.
