Mission Minded 2019

Making Connections | 1916 - 2019

We Are The Global Church

BEGINS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3

Mission Minded 2019 presents a great opportunity for Calvary to reconnect with our missionaries, both local and global, and to celebrate our church’s impact through missions over the last century. The best way for our congregation, both children and adults, to grow in our vision for what God is doing around the world is through listening and responding to our missionaries, and celebrating with them for all that the Lord has accomplished in and through their lives and ministries.

Let us expand and deepen the connections we have with our missionaries this upcoming month, and may God be glorified in the process.

 

Connect Over Coffee

On Sundays November 3 and 10, take the time to connect with our missionaries after the services. Our Calvary missionaries, both local and global, will be in the Parlor and Heritage Room (as will be our coffee stations and some sweets), so make the time to stop by.  

 

THE MONTH'S EVENTS

ALL CHURCH DINNER

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 6-8PM

CAMPUS PRAYER WALK EVENT

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 9AM START AT CALVARY

"Let's Pray" has been a focus for our church over this past year. To echo Pastor Gerald's challenge, "Nothing of lasting worth will be accomplished through us apart from a prayerful and earnest dependence on the Lord."

It is with this mindset that we have planned our 2019 Mission Minded Prayer event.  This year, we will be taking prayer outside of the walls of the church and onto various college campuses around Oak Park. Amy & Andy Brandt and Robert Burdett, Calvary missionaries serving with Cru and InterVarsity respectively, will be leading us on a Prayer Walk as part of the Every Campus initiative. (Watch the Invitation Video)

Join us on Saturday, November 9 at 9AM at Calvary.  We will gather together for a light breakfast and an introduction to the morning's activities, and then be sent out to various local college campuses. We will return to the church around 11:15AM for a time of debrief and a pizza lunch.
