Calvary Cookbook

Calling all cooks!
The Calvary Cookbook is coming together but it’s not complete without a recipe from YOU! Send a recipe or two into the office or CLICK HERE to submit a recipe online.
When complete the Calvary Cookbook will be sold as a fundraiser for Calvary’s building loan balance.

Project Loaves & Fishes

WHO:Confirmation students willing to participate : CLICK HERE to register

WHAT: Project Loaves and Fishes– If you’re willing and able to participate, stop by the church office to pick up an envelope with $50 in it. Your goal with this money is to go out and multiply it and bring that back as an offering! Some examples are, but not limited to:

 

• Car wash: buy supplies with your dollars and charge a fee or freewill donation for the wash.

• Bake sale :buy flour, sugar, eggs and print flyers for a bake sale• Wash windows
• Rent carpet cleaner
• Yard work

• Date night: purchase supplies for a craft project, pizza, juice and offer to babysit for a fee or freewill donation!

• Are you creative? Make something to sell! Auction/raffle off a tie blanket!
Don’t be afraid to be creative with your fellow confirmation students. Perhaps you pool

dollars together for a greater investment you think might create a larger impact!

WHEN:You have the rest of the summer to brainstorm, plan, and take action! We ask that you come prepared to orientation night on September 5 with two pictures from your project as well as the funds you were able to collect.

Aaron will be creating a video with photos and interviews highlighting all the different projects and what your experience was like. Like the story of the loaves and fishes, we believe that what you start with, Jesus can help multiply to bless many!

Something to consider: If you or someone you know is a Thrivent member, consider applying for a Thrivent Action Team Grant to help supplement your project!

Contact Pastor Kirk with questions!

Interested in becoming a member of Calvary? Are you wondering what church membership means?

Join us for New Member Orientation on September 30 in our Fellowship Hall (Contemporary Worship space) located on the south end of the building. We will have a light lunch and learn about all things Calvary beginning at 11:45  a.m. Meet other new members, learn more about Calvary’s ministry and meet a few staff, with an optional tour of the church to follow. Children are welcome, and child care in the nursery will be provided.

Baptism Classes

We welcome all to the baptism font at Calvary! – both young and old, both members and non-members. At Calvary, baptisms happen in worship, both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

In preparation for baptism, we ask that you – the baptism family, and (if available) your sponsors – attend one of our Baptism orientation class, held monthly at Calvary. (Please note: you can attend the class anytime before the baptism event, even before your baby is born!)  We believe that this is important, not only to understand what it means to have your child baptized, but to connect with others who are in the same life-stage as you.

For more info, please read our Baptism Class Brochure. For any additional questions and to schedule your baptism, please contact Cathy in the church office (701-772-4897).

Here are the dates for our upcoming classes:

  • Thursday, August 16, 5:30 p.m.
