CALVARY STUDENTS
CAR WASH

Save the date. Our Calvary Students Car Wash will be held on Saturday, July 13 from 9:30AM - Noon in our West Parking Lot. Calvary Students will be accepting donations to help cover the cost of their Mission Camp in Cedarville, Ohio. This camp is a fusion of Bible teaching, worship, and breakout groups, as well as a serving opportunity to help a local organization working with adults with developmental challenges. 

Thank you for investing in the lives of our students, and those they are able to serve.

UPCOMING BAPTISMS

Baptism is the gospel in picture form. Baptism shows we have been washed with Christ’s blood–the blood by which God reconciles “to himself all things” (Col 1:20). This blood is how God declares us righteous and ransoms us from death (Rom 5:91 Pet 1:18-19).

Baptism not only connects us to Jesus’ blood but also his resurrection. As Paul says, “having been buried with him in baptism … you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God” (Col 2:12).

If you have not been baptized and would like to be, please contact us for an interview. Our next baptismal service will be Sunday, July 28.

CONGREGATIONAL
MEETING RECAP

On Sunday, June 23, Calvary members met to vote on the recommendation by the Elders to secure a $600,000 line of credit specifically and exclusively for the repair and replacement of the roof. The recommendation was approved by 98% of the Calvary members present. At this time, Calvary's staff continue in conversation with a number of roofing companies and financial institutions. We will provide updates as they become available.
 

Dinner for 8 Signup

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.
