Join in the Matthew 25 Celebration!

Matthew 25 2019-09-15.png

We hope everyone was able to participate in the daily challenges made available this past week. This Sunday we gather to celebrate the ways God has moved us to care for “the Least of These.”

In addition to coming to Worship this Sunday we want to invite you to:

  1. Fellowship with coffee and donuts in the Hub area!

  2. Consider Sponsoring a Child from our partner region of Buliisa, Uganda. Not only can you change the life of a child, sponsorship provides the greatest community impact for sustainable change. Sponsorship displays can be found at the Kiosk in the atrium OR in the Hub.

  3. Take time to pray. Stop by the chapel, pick up guided prayer suggestions and lift up brothers and sisters around the world who are in need.

  4. Take your own “Walk for Water” on the Calvary Track. Pick up a jerry can filled with water to see how heavy it is, walk around the track and read about the need for clean water and the life-giving water projects made possible through our support of Uganda WASH.

  5. Go down to the gym, see the Buliisa, Uganda display and take time to write a note, draw a picture, create something to provide encouragement for your sponsor child or for the World Vision staff who work to bring hope and change to the children we sponsor and their families.

  6. Don’t forget to drop off your donation in the atrium for Home Sweet Home Ministries Big Give. If you forgot to pick up items this week – it’s not too late. Head to the store before or after worship and bring your donation back to drop off.

  7. Join the Calvary family for a BBQ lunch on Sunday at 11:45 in the gym. No reservations necessary! Just come, enjoy a meal and hear the latest news from Buliisa from our World Vision liaison who visited there last summer!

  8. If you have time after the meal there will be an opportunity to help pack up items donated for the Big Give so they can be picked up on Monday.
