Calvary Church Presents Father’s Day in the Park

Lionel-YoungFather's Day in the Park...
It's here! Our second annual Father's Day in the Park is THIS Sunday. We have some fun planned for you including great music from the Calvary Live worship band led by our own Kurt Felsman, food vendors, a car show, and a guest appearance from former NBA star Roger Powell. And yes--we will sing and proclaim the gospel outdoors in the heart of our city!

This is also a fantastic Sunday to invite a friend or a neighbor to enjoy a wonderful Father's Day with the family--and hear the gospel! So bring a friend, your blanket or chair, and plan to arrive a little early. Let's have a great time enjoying God together! If you want to check out the songs we are singing this weekend--you can listen to them here.

Global Missions
Calvary is excited to be sending out two mission teams in July in partnership with Kids Alive International! Our student ministries will be sending a group to Guatemala to help with construction of a new girls home. This will make room for more girls who have suffered abuse and need to experience the love of Jesus. We are also sending eight married couples to Mitaboni, Kenya, to construct a playground and shower the children with love! Please be praying for both of these teams as they represent Calvary and spread the gospel around the world.
