The church office and building will be closed on Thursday, July 4th and Friday, July 5th. We hope you enjoy your Independence Day weekend!
If you missed worship on June 23, please take a moment to interact with the work of our Strategic Leadership Team (videos and print) at www.connectwithcalvary.org/roadmap-2019. Hard copy summary reports are available at the Connections Center Atrium Kiosk (these reports were handed out in worship on June 23).
This summer, the American Red Cross is thrilled to team up with Blood Program partners like Calvary to help replace the #MissingTypes – the blood types of A, B, and O. Kids fighting cancer or battling sickle cell disease, accident victims being raced to trauma centers, and moms with complicated childbirths are all depending on volunteer blood donors to help make sure that blood is there when they need it most. Only 3 out of 100 Americans donate blood. That’s an alarming statistic – but it’s one that we can help to change.
The next Calvary Blood Drive will be July 15th with appointments available from 9am to 6pm. Please support the American Red Cross and the people in need of blood by signing up for the July 15th blood drive. Contact Nancy Behrens at 309-261-6407 to sign up, or you can go directly to redcrossblood.org and sign up for the Calvary Blood Drive.
The north side of the Calvary garden has been planted. We will need help the rest of the summer with watering, weeding, and picking.

For additional information or questions, please contact Ted Mims at 217-494-6426 or Glen Schmidt at 309-824-3891.

Earlier this spring students were asked to pick a topic of their choice and vote on it. During this summer on Wednesdays from 6-7:15pm starting June 26th in room G005, Jr. High students are invited to read and wrestle with the book of Revelation. We'll read and stop as we go for questions. If you miss a week no big deal! Just come when you can. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to Kellen Lemler.
Bring your family and friends on Friday, June 28 from 6-8:30 pm and join us as we watch The Prince of Egypt on the big screen in Room 113/115. Popcorn, snacks and drinks will be provided. Please be sure all children attending have a responsible party staying with them. Bring a popcorn bowl, blanket to sit on and/or pillows to be comfortable. We will have some chairs available in the back for those who want them. Come join the fun!
During the summer of 2019, we’ll be preaching a series of sermons on the Holy Spirit. We would love to address questions you have about the Holy Spirit. No question(s) is off limits, out of bounds, or too basic!
Please take a moment to submit a question(s) using this link. Thanks for helping make this series better through your participation!

Mom & Me Camp and East Bay Camp offer a camp for 7-12 year old children whose mothers are incarcerated at Logan and Decatur Correctional Centers. The children and their mothers participate in a day-camp at the prison. The children return each evening to EBC for the fun and the fellowship of summer camp. Forty-five children are given this time to be with their mothers, playing games, doing craft projects and renewing their relationships. Prayers, volunteers and donations are key needs for this special ministry that brings inmates and their children together in a supportive Christian experience. This year's camp is July 21st - July 28th. Stop by the kiosk in the atrium to learn how you might be involved in this wonderful ministry.
