October 13 & 14

Susanna Black, member of the Presiding Bishop's Advisory Council, and Sylvia Black, member of the ELCA Campaign Steering Committee, have asked Calvary to act as the host site for a fundraising dinner to benefit the ELCA's International Women Leaders Initiative. Through the initiative, the ELCA seeks to provide more than 200 women from its global companion churches with scholarships and educational opportunities to support their call to ministry and leadership. 

The IWL initiative is one of the ELCA's 10 priorities for its five-year comprehensive campaign, Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA. This will allow these women to not only study in their home contexts but also to study at our ELCA seminaries, colleges and universities. It is an investment to create more leaders, which will help not just one person but an entire church, community and a country.

The dinner will take place in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday, October 13 and will be fully sponsored by the ELCA. The ELCA will invite current Initiative supporters, donors from prior Churchwide appeals, and those identified as potential donors. Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will be in attendance.

On Sunday, October 14th, Bishop Eaton will make herself available to participate in our worship service, and will plan to join us for lunch if her travel plans allow.

A committee is being organized to help plan and carry out these events, as volunteers will be needed. This is a unique and wonderful opportunity for Calvary to put its best face forward, not only for our Presiding Bishop and special guests, but for the many visitors that we expect not only for the Saturday dinner but for the Sunday worship and lunch. 

More details will be forthcoming soon as these events rapidly approach.
