Theme: Our hearts are in love with success and power
Mark 8: 31-38
We want the good things and pleasures of this life. These earthly things may seem to fill up our hearts, but they will not bring us what we really seek.
Jesus came to show us a different way to life. It is a way that involves giving our hearts to self-giving love and service.
God blesses Abraham and Sarah
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord. (Ps. 22:27)
The promise to those who share Abraham’s faith
The passion prediction
We know that some Calvary members have not been able to join us on YouTube for worship during the pandemic. For this reason, we are offering to mail our weekly bulletin (including weekly scriptures) to any member or Calvary friend who would like to have a copy for home worship.
Please call 704-782-6923 or email Shannon at email@example.com if you or someone you know would like to receive our weekly bulletin and other worship resources in the mail. Please specify which service you would like to receive.
Please join us via Zoom each Wednesday during Lent at 7:00pm to spend time reconnecting with each other’s lives. We will then delve into a time of prayer and study as we consider the meaning of justice for our lives.
Our Baptismal covenant says that we will “strive for justice and peace in all the earth.” What in the world are we saying here? We will look at justice through the lens of our partners at Lutheran World Relief as we hear stories of their work and attempt to bring this call to justice home to our everyday lives.
I look forward to seeing you and growing together in compassionate relationships, faith, service, and generosity.
-- Pastor Debbie

During Lent, we see our Lord walking the way of faithful service for the salvation of the world. You and I, as his disciples, are called to model our lives after his and commit our lives to service and sharing the light of God’s love with others.
During Lent, we will work together on two service projects: gift bags for Winecoff teachers and personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief.
Details about each of these projects follow on this page.
Our evangelism committee is heading up this project with the help of Calvary members.
If you have the time to help with writing personal notes to Winecoff teachers, please reach out to Pastor Debbie.
If you want to help with gift bags for teachers, please reach out to Lisa Hunkele or Debbie Dreyer.
Thank you to Marion Bish for using her embroidery skills to make 101 cards for Winecoff teachers!
As part of our “Pass It On” initiatives for 2021, we are partnering with Lutheran World Relief to make personal care kits.
Our social ministry committee has set a goal of 75 kits.
You may drop off your kit at any time during Lent in the narthex. Beth Hawk is coordinating this project for Calvary.
If you would like to simply make a monetary donation to this project, Beth will shop for the needed items and put the kit together for you.
