Many of you have expressed to me how important it has been for you to come to this place and gather with church family at our parking lot and shelter worship on September 27th and on October 4th. Just the act of being in this location and in the company of your church family has fed your souls.
With that in mind, we will be holding a parking lot worship at 9:30am once again this Sunday, October 18th, for all who are able to gather. We will post the service to our YouTube Channel as soon as possible after the service. We have worked through some of the challenges that have kept us from posting our prior outdoor services.
It promises to be a cold fall morning. Bundle up. Please wear your mask at all times and practice social distancing from anyone who is not a member of your family.
On your way into the parking lot, please stop to receive your communion elements from an usher. A basket for your offering will be available at the entrances as well. As you move into the parking lot, please look for an usher to direct you to a parking spot.
In Christ’s love,
We are so happy to be gathering in person for worship at our outdoor shelter during October. Each Sunday, we need extra hands to help with set up starting at 7:30am and take down after 9:30am worship. If you have time and effort to share, you will be a part of helping our church family shine the light of Christ this month through our worship services. For more information, speak to Pastor Debbie or Kyle Peace, Technology Committee.
Join Pastor Debbie and Susan Norris for Centering Prayer via zoom on Tuesdays at 10 am or 7:30 pm.
Centering Prayer is based on the wisdom saying of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: “But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you.” MT 6:6 It is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts a new light and depth on the meaning of them. It is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Our sessions, which include a liturgy, Scripture, a brief contemplative reading, and meditation, will last approximately 40 minutes. While some people attend a workshop first as an introduction to the method of Centering Prayer, it is not a requirement to join us.
I invite you to join me and your brothers and sisters in Christ to a four-week conversation about Making Our Vision Statement Our Own on Sunday, October 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th during Sunday School.
We would love to double the size of our Sunday School class as we delve into this topic. Our conversation is relevant to everyone’s daily discipleship and participation at Calvary as we think about what the light of Christ is and how we experience and share it.
