God Rested

By: Calvary Church Last Updated: May 21, 2014

calvary-monk-imageC. S. Lewis once said, "There's no use trying to be more spiritual than God." What a thought-provoking statement. God rested from His work (Genesis 2.1-3) and so should we. That is the theme for this weekend's worship services at Calvary. God made us to work, but he didn't make us to work all the time! Set aside time this Sunday to rest and hear the next installment of this life-changing series "Made to Work."

Please remember that on Sunday, June 1, we are holding an informational Town Hall Meeting during the 9:45a and 11:15a services in the gymnasium. Come hear from our partners the Aspen Group, and dream with us about the future!

Everything we enjoy--including this beautiful weather-is a gift from God. Make sure you take time to worship the GIVER, while you enjoy the gifts.

What's new at Calvary...

Student Ministries
The final round of the Reliant Game Night tournament is this week! Come play games, have dinner, and hang out in the Well from 6:30-9p. It's our semester finale for Game Night.

Connect and Reliant Students - Just a reminder that we will not meet this Sunday, 5.25, due to Memorial Day. Have a great weekend with your families and friends!

We are so excited for our upcoming Semester Grand Finale and Senior Night on Sunday, 6.1, from 4:30-6:30p! It will be a huge, combined event for Connect and Reliant middle and high school students. We will have time to celebrate our graduating seniors and have an awesome feast! Students will not want to miss it!

Town Hall Meeting
Have you noticed it getting really cozy around here? We have, too! So we have begun planning to make room for more in our facilities. We will hold a “Town hall” informational meeting on Sunday, June 1, to share with you our plans for church growth. Come dream with us and hear from our elder chair, Jon Costas, at 9:45a or 11:15a in the gym.

Father's Day
Bring your blanket or chairs and join us on Sunday, June 15 at the downtown Central Park Plaza Amphitheater for a combined outdoor worship service at 11a to celebrate Dad's and Family! After the service, stick around the park, have a picnic (food vendors will be on site), toss a frisbee, walk around our 'Cruise In' of cars and enjoy spending time with your family and friends.

Discover Israel
Join our Senior Pastor Lionel Young and his wife Stacy for the trip of a lifetime to the land of the Bible. Calvary's first ever 'Discover Israel' study tour will be February 1-12, 2015. CLICK HERE for further details on this amazing adventure.

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. If you would like to donate to these ministries, CLICK HERE and write a memo of "2014 Summer Mission Trip" in the note.
