Bring a dish to share

Michelle Mattia has been with the ShopRite store for over 4 years as their dietician. She will share many ways to use a crock pot and will also bring some prepared recipes for everyone to sample. It’s a great time to learn how easy and time-saving it is to use this wonderful appliance.

If you have any questions contact Joan Lawson at (860) 745-5211.

A Crier Calling?

Steve’s Space: A Firm Foundation

For a couple of summers during college I worked for a company which specialized in concrete foundations. I remember one job where we were trying to dig a trench for some footings in very sandy soil. The more that we dug, more the sand would just fill in. Finally had to give up… and bring in someone who could scrape the sandy soil away so that the foundation could be poured on solid ground. continued

Deacons’ Corner

The Deacons would like to thank all who attended the Annual Pancake Breakfast and a huge thank you to the cooks. Once again it was a wonderful time of fellowship to kick off the beginning of another fun-filled, Spirit-filled year at Calvary.

The Fall Friendship Feast bring-a-guest potluck is on the calendar for October 18, 2014 at 5:30 pm. Desserts and drinks will be provided. A sign up sheet will be in the Fellowship Mall. If anyone who would like to come and needs a ride please contact Penny Farrell or any one of the Deacons.

Calvary Church
Men’s Ministry
is Looking for YOU!!

Many men would like to grow in faith and service to the Lord, but are not sure how to do it. If this describes you, a new ministry to men here at Calvary may be able to help.

The Mission Statement of the ministry is:
“Calvary Men’s Ministry exists to encourage and empower men to grow together in Christian faith and service.”

This is in line with Calvary’s vision to “Love God, Love One Another, and Make Disciples.”

The Ministry is still in the planning stages, with a number of potential activities envisioned for the future: small groups (study and prayer), speakers, get togethers and ongoing active participation in the daily life of Calvary, as well as the community at large.

If this interests you, and you have questions, please talk with any of the ministry leadership team…and please pray for them!

God Bless!!

Reflections: Power Surge

Automotive programs are definitely not at the top of my TV viewing choices (yawn) and what I know about cars, motorcycles, etc. you could put on the head of a pin. Yet a few nights ago I was curiously drawn to watching just such a program already in progress as I returned home from a meeting. It seems a fast food drive-in corporation had contracted to have a 1968 Camaro SS convertible fashioned into a retro-mod to be used for promotional purposes. For those of you who don’t know (I didn’t.) a retro-mod is an old muscle car that has been retro-fitted. It still looks like an old ’68 Camaro SS. But everything else about it is 2014 on steroids. continued

A Note from the Welcome Ministry

We in the Welcome ministry would like to thank everyone who stopped at the Ministry table we had set up during our wonderful Pancake Breakfast, thank you Deacons for all your hard work. More importantly though we would like to thank those that stepped up to the plate and signed up. We are still short Welcomers for the 2nd service if anyone is interested!

There are many of our family members who do so much for our church already, and we want to thank you all for the help. But that is what makes a church a family, when we all pitch in and make it ‘work’. Our Father see our work. As said in Hebrew 6:10 “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.”
