Calvary Community Luncheons are back again this year. Save the Sunday dates: July 20 and August 24. July will be a pizza lunch, and August will be burgers and dogs! All are welcome to stay after church and enjoy food and fellowship!
Fourth of July Celebration
The Enfield Fourth of July Celebration is being held on the weekend of the 12th and 13th this year. Each year we have brought balloon sculptures and face painting to the children of Enfield. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to our community and make a difference, but more importantly, bring God’s presence into these children’s lives. Please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to take an active role in partnering with Katy Lee. She needs a partner to make this a go! Please contact her before June 15 with questions and interest at 860-616-8595.
| Thank You!
Thank you to my wonderful Calvary Church family for all of your faithful prayers, caring and concerned phone calls, and all the beautiful get well cards during my recent shingles virus outbreak. I am overwhelmed by your kindness and love. God worked through your prayers to heal me.
I am still dealing with a side effect of inflammatory nerve pain down my right leg. I am praying this will subside quickly. Thank you again and may God bless all of you.

Reflections: Frolicking Spring Foals
Is there a place more beautiful than the northeast at the peak of springtime? After the long cold winter, it seems like all the flowering trees, gardens, and shrubs are rewarding us for the tenacity we mustered, enduring seemingly endless days of bone-penetrating cold and snow. Coats, hats, gloves, and boots, tucked in the back of our closets, have become a distant recollection of those days. Everywhere I look I see freshness and new life. continued
Please come and support this wonderful opportunity to come together as the body of Christ and pray for our community. We will meet for one hour on the following dates:
Mondays: June 9, July 7, & August 11
Time: 7-8 pm
Place: Town Gazebo
It might be helpful to bring a folding chair. Call Joan with questions a 860-745-5211.

Many thanks to the Choir conducted by Cathy Perrill for the inspirational music during worship services since September. The choir will be taking well-deserved time-off from June 8 through August 31. However, Sunday, July 20 will be “Summer Choir” Day. All who would like to sing are asked to gather in the choir room at 9:30 to rehearse the music for the service. All are welcome even if you have not sung with our choir before.
If you would like to sing or play a solo or have your own group it would be great to have you involved in the music for a service! Please let me know. Thanks!
