We welcome anyone who would like to get to know a little more about Calvary to a delicious fried chicken lunch with Pastor Randy on Sunday, May 5th at Noon in Room 111. Attending the lunch is the first step in the membership process. You can expect an informal time to meet a few other new folks, chat with one another, and learn a bit more about who we are at Calvary. We welcome you to bring any questions you might have. You can RSVP to lunch here or stop by and see Amanda at the Connections Center kiosk in the Atrium on Sunday morning. We are looking forward to breaking bread with you!

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.
Now that spring has finally arrived, it's time to think about spring cleaning!

The 2019 Mowing season is rapidly approaching! We appreciate everyone who has helped in the past and we are putting together the calendar for the 2019 schedule. If we are able, we can set up pairs of folks to mow on Saturdays as well as Fridays. We need at least two people, for safety reasons, or in case one of the mowers gets stuck. If you have any questions, or are interested in signing up to help mow, please signup here or contact Larry Gamblin (815-848-2253).
The brown box just inside our front doors are helping many families. That means we are often running very low on food. If you are able, would you consider buying one extra item each week and bringing it for the box? Please leave food on the counter behind the welcome center. We can use boxed items, cereal, canned goods, peanut butter and pasta. This would give us an ongoing supply of food for those struggling to feed their families. Thank you!
