CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

SUN JUN 23 | IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SECOND SERVICE

This Sunday, we will host a short congregational meeting in the Sanctuary immediately following the second service. The membership of Calvary will vote on the recommendation by the Elders to secure a line of credit specifically and exclusively for the repair and replacement of the roof. The meeting should not last longer than 20-30 minutes. Childcare will be provided*.

Use the link below to access our Congregational Meeting Information Sheet. Please note, in previous communications we have indicated that we would pursue a line of credit in the amount of $500,000. After evaluating quotes from multiple roofing companies and taking into consideration the additional expenses of tuck pointing, permits, construction management fees, etc. we have determined that it would be prudent to seek a LOC in the amount of $600,000.

Dinner for 8 Signup

For those of you attending a Dinner for 8 gathering this evening, Bon Appétit.

For everyone else, don't miss out on this Calvary summer tradition. You may still sign up either to host or attend a July 19 or August 16 dinner

Dinner for 8 provides a friendly, informal means for Calvary members and attenders to meet one another, enjoy a delicious meal, and have a sweet time of fellowship. The hope is for you to meet new people across the Calvary family. This is not a gourmet dinner club, but an opportunity to strengthen and deepen the relationships between those who attend Calvary.

The dinner groups will be comprised of members from any of the cities, towns, and villages in which those attending Calvary reside and will not be isolated geographical groups.
