Pastor Debbie will be leading another class from June 14- August 9 that will coincide with our two summer worship themes (Road Trip and By the Sea).
Both of the themes will have us looking at Jesus with his disciples “on the road” and “by the sea” as he teaches them much about carrying out his work.
Pastor Debbie is excited about sharing these themes with you for worship and is thrilled about a book that we will be using in conjunction with our Sunday School class. It is a recently published book that is a series of lectures from Father Henri Nouwen. It is called: Following Jesus: Finding our Way Home in an Age of Anxiety.
Pastor Debbie said “I can’t wait to share with you some of what Nouwen says and to walk along side of you as we seek to let Jesus’ Word bear fruit in our lives as disciples. I would encourage you to order the book for yourself. It is available online.”
The invitation is “Come and see the place of God.” In the beginning, we think it is just his home, his physical place, but as the Gospel of John develops, John shows us that the place of God is the intimate life of God himself-The Father, Son, and Spirit who form a family of love into which we are invited. Following Jesus is the way to enter into the family of love. We do not have to follow Jesus. First is the invitation, “Come, come. Come and see.” (page 23)
Join us as we study together, hear the voice of love within, and allow it to lead us from restless wandering to joyful following.
The Property Committee has developed a new form for requesting and tracking maintenance and repairs around the Calvary campus by the Property Committee. The form is available in the office.

Calvary's Care and Concern Ministry is a confidential ministry that reaches out to support our members in a variety of ways. The most apparent ones are that we offer cards, calls, visits and meals to members following hospitalizations, deaths in the family, job losses, etc. We also provide transportation to doctor visits and pick up groceries or medicines when needed.
There is a Calvary Cares Fund that Pastor Debbie oversees to not only ensure confidentiality but also to ensure good stewardship of the resources we do have that can be used to help members who are experiencing unexpected needs during this pandemic.
Help, in a variety of ways, has been ongoing behind the scenes. Pastor Debbie has received donations from members to this fund, which she, in turn, has used to help others.
If you would like to help members of our congregation in this time of need, the best way is to make a donation to the Calvary Cares Fund, which can be accomplished by designating your gift on your offering envelope or check. Your gift and those who receive support will remain confidential.
