Calvary’s Salvation Army Bell Ringing Day

Saturday, December 1

Calvary’s day of bell ringing for the Salvation Army is December 1! This is the eighth year that Calvary will ring bellringingbells at all the kettle locations for the entire day.  Two hours of your time multiplies into a year’s worth of support for individuals and families in the local area. We know what a marvelous organization the Salvation Army is and this is our way of showing how much we care and appreciate them.   The Salvation Army provides support throughout the year for individuals and families for rent and utility assistance, warm clothing, food, school supplies, Christmas presents for kids and outreach to area youth and veterans.  This is the Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year and our takeover day is a huge blessing to them.

This is a great opportunity for families and church groups.  We have 81 time slots to fill. CLICK HERE to sign up!

By Heart : Conversations with Luther’s Small Catechism

This year we are marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation!  “By Heart: Conversations with Luther’s Small Catechism.” For those of you who are fairly new to the Lutheran faith, this is a great opportunity to get the foundation of how Lutherans understand the basics of our faith. And for all of those life-long Lutherans out there who studied the Small Catechism in your youth, it may be time to revisit these basics again as we never outgrow or cease to be tutored by The Lord’s prayer, the Apostles Creed,  the 10 Commandments and the essence of the sacraments.

 

This unit on the Small Catechism will be six sessions and will be offered at the following times:

  • Sundays at 10:30am in the Sanctuary beginning September 17

  • Mondays at at 6:30pm (with Pastor Kristen – Nursery care provided) beginning September 18

  • Wednesdays at 11am in Room 10 (with Pastor Sonja), beginning September 20

We will start taking donations at noon on January 14th in Fellowship Hall. We are unable to accept tube TVs, computers, or printers. We gladly accept most other donations and volunteers! If you are new to Calvary here is an opportunity to meet other members and support a long term mission project that continues to make an impact on Calvary and the Brothers and Sisters we serve in Honduras!
