HABITAT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Calvary Lutheran is scheduled to help build a Habitat house at 909 Miller street in Kannapolis on November 2. We need 10 volunteers. No experience is necessary. We don’t know what we’ll be doing at this time, but will publish that information when available. A sign up list is posted on the bulletin board. If anyone would like to furnish lunches for the volunteers, contact Tom Miller 704-301-0093, or email@example.com. If no one volunteers, we will probably just carry our own lunch.

Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes will be available on October 27. Your support of this ministry provides Christmas gifts to children around the world. Please return the shoeboxes by November 17th so that they may be taken to the distribution center. If you have any questions, contact Beth Hawk.
Calvary partners with CCM to provide Christmas gifts to families in need in our community. Angels are adopted, gifts bought and then the families pick up their gifts and a plated meal the week before Christmas. Thank you for your support of this wonderful Christmas ministry. See Keith Sutton for more information.
Calvary's social ministry committee is always looking for ways to help our Calvary family put God's love into action in our community in tangible ways. During 2019, we will be growing our partnership with Winecoff Elementary School through a project to support the staff, assisting with the most urgent needs for students, and helping to provide lunch buddies and mentors for students.
If you have an interest in helping to build this partnership, we are beginning to make plans for the year. We can use volunteers to help in many ways. Please reach out to Ken Glace firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Debbie email@example.com if you have an interest. Thanks to everyone who delivers backpacks to Winecoff throughout the year, and everyone who brought in school supplies last July for the school. The school has expressed their gratitude for our efforts.
