At times, we wonder if we will have enough and be enough. Can we pay the bills, do what is necessary for our job, be a good enough parent, and keep up the expectations that are laid upon us? God wants to satisfy our needs and show us that we have and are enough.
Today, Jesus invites us to not only see but count the 5 loaves and 2 fish. What gifts is God putting into your life to help satisfy you and provide abundantly for you each day?
Worship at 8:30 & 11:00 will be in-person with no reservations required.
Services will also be livestreamed on Calvary's YouTube Channel at 8:30 am and 11:00 am.

Calvary rejoices with church member, Jim Ramseur, who was honored this week for his service to the City of Concord.
On July 19, 2021, the City of Concord held a naming ceremony for the NW Park. The J. E. Jim Ramseur Park at 1252 Cox Mill Road will be a wonderful gathering place and recreation site for many generations to come.
Jim served on Concord’s City Council for 20 years and has offered many years of service to Concord’s Historic Committee. He loves his city and has shared his gifts freely to make Concord a better place for one and all.
Property will be having two more work evenings in July.
So far this month we limbed up the trees, cleaned 2 electrical closets, sprayed weeds on the playground, and began work to replace the outside light fixtures. There is still much work to be done.
Upcoming workdays are 6:30pm – 8:30pm: Tuesday, July 27; and Thursday July 29.
Water and Gatorade will be furnished. Property felt that an evening together would be more attractive than using a Saturday that you have waited over a year to enjoy.
Please let Gary Fritz know if you will be a participant.
Climb aboard for mountains of fun at Rocky Railway! On this faith-filled adventure, kids discover that trusting Jesus pulls them through life’s ups and downs.
The Summer Sunday School classes start June 13th and continue through August 8. Classes meet from 10:00aam to 10:40am in the church fellowship hall (screen end). You may also join in online by Zoom.
We will be using sabbatical interviews, the Bible (Jesus’ kingdom of God teachings), and Brian McClaren’s book, The Secret Message of Jesus, as guides for reflection and insight. There will be an opportunity to dig deeper during the week and to take our conversations into daily life.
Contact Pastor Debbie with questions about the class firstname.lastname@example.org. Join us on any or all weeks and be challenged by the message of the Gospel.
