I walked into the church gym after the third service last Sunday, and my heart was warmed to see it packed with people getting plugged into the Calvary community. Nearly 140 people connected with Life Groups through GroupLink last week! That is cause for celebration! Whether you're hanging out with friends, helping at Calvary Serves, or getting into a Life Group, let me encourage you to be in the lives of other believers often this fall.
So many people plugging into Life Groups is just one reflection of how full our cup (and our building!) is lately. What are we going to do with the crowds? First, we are going to rejoice in what God is doing! Second, we are going to enjoy being part of a growing church together. Third, well, we are going to tell you more about the next step this Sunday when we update you on the Vision 2020 project.
Don't forget the Financial Peace University class starts tonight. This is a great way to invest in your family AND connect with the church community. And so is Sunday worship. See you then!
What's New at Calvary...
Financial Peace University
Calvary Church is offering the Financial Peace University Workshop, and the first session is TONIGHT. Financial Peace University will teach you and your family how to get out of debt, stay out of debt, and build wealth.
Spend a day changing lives during our annual Calvary Serves day on Saturday, 10.3. We are lining up projects throughout the community so we can serve the poor and needy of Valparaiso alongside our ministry partners. Meet in the Well at 8a for donuts, coffee, and a short worship session then head out to your project. Sign-up here.

For those who are considering making Calvary Church their home, Starting Point provides important information and connects you with others in a highly interactive format. Starting Point meets Sundays, 10.11-25, at 11:15a. Sign-up online here.
Starting Point for Kids
The Starting Point for Kids course (for kids 8-12) focuses on God's character, salvation, baptism, and following God's plan.
