The calling of Samuel
You have searched me out and known me. (Ps. 139:1)
Glorify God in your body
The calling of the first disciples
Attend via Zoom:
You are my beloved. How may these four words reshape your whole world? How may they do the same for someone else if you show them that this is true?
We live in a world where many people
have lost touch with their value and worth in God. Some people need to be given a reason to believe in a God of love again or for the first time.
Let’s help make the world a brighter place by claiming these words for ourselves and planning for how we can embody these words to others through our daily living. Starting January 10, join Pastor Debbie in delving into these words as we read Henri Nouwen’s Life of the Beloved.

We would like to form a group that is made up of individuals who use the church kitchen. The initial purpose of this group would be to organize and clean the kitchen and then set guidelines for maintenance. This committee will report to the property committee on an as needed basis. If you are interested in joining or volunteering call either Sandy Gehl or Cathy DuPont.
The purpose of our Care and Concern Ministry at Calvary is to offer confidential acts of encouragement and support to members of our congregational family when they face illness, loss, and everyday transitions that often challenge our faith. During 2020, 20 volunteers completed the following for 163 different members of our congregation: they sent 767 cards, made 142 calls and 19 visits. They delivered 40 meals, provided transportation 26 times, and picked up items for home- bound members more than 7 times.
Volunteers can serve in one or more of the following areas:
Please prayerfully consider volunteering to serve on Care and Concern in 2021. Contact Phyllis Jessup (firstname.lastname@example.org or Susan Norris (email@example.com to sign up and to receive additional information.

Please call 704-782-6923 or email Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or someone you know would like to receive our weekly bulletin and other worship resources in the mail.
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.
