Come join us now for the Easter Sunrise Breakfast. The Breakfast will immediately follow the Sunrise Service which will be at 6:30 a.m. The 11:00 Planning Group is in charge of Sunrise worship. We will gather under the portico and then move inside as we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.
We need your help! We have not had a Sunrise Breakfast in several years so we are not sure how many to plan for. PLEASE, indicate that you are attending the breakfast by filling out the Calvary Connect, emailing email@example.com or calling 704-782-6923 the church office. We are not sure to plan for 25 or 100. Please respond!
Sunday evening, April 14, the Journey in Faith Committee will host a Church Family Seder Meal for all ages to experience and enjoy. This special meal will start at 5:30 and dress is casual. Mark your calendar for this special time in the life of the church.
You will not want to miss it. Please make reservations so we will know how to plan.
The congregational council is designating the season of Lent as a time of listening at Calvary. As we move forward as a community of faith, it is vital that we listen to one another to determine who we are, who we wish to become, and to honor our past.
Concurrent with the survey process, the task group will be conducting listening sessions with current committees and groups at Calvary. This is not a formal focus group but an informal listening session in order to ascertain common themes and phrasing that will assist in clarifying mission, values, and goals. The listening sessions will occur throughout the six weeks of Lent.
In addition, there will be opportunities during Sunday School throughout March and April to listen and learn more about Calvary’s history and the important symbols of our faith. Look for the details of all our Sunday School classes in this week’s Rejoice.
We ask you to join your congregational council in these 40 days of prayer, listening, and discernment about our life together in community. Our Lord is always leading us and has so much in mind for us to do as we seek to extend his kingdom. Before Jesus started his ministry, he took time in the wilderness to pray, listen to his Father, and wrestle with who he would be as Son of God. We, too, need such times of reflection and discovery in order to fulfill our mission.
For more information, please be in touch with Marion Bish, Vice President of council, and leader of the task group designated to identify mission, core values, and goals.
