This week is Sleep-In Sunday! (You can call it Daylight Saving Time if you want). Take advantage of the extra hour of sleep and then join us for worship. This is the perfect Sunday to try out the 8:15 a.m. or 11:15 a.m. service. We're packed in tight, even overcrowded, for the 9:45 a.m. service thanks to the growth we've experienced. What a fantastic problem to have! Keep witnessing and inviting people-we'll find a place for everyone!
We'll listen to more of Solomon's Love Song this week. You have heard me say it many times: I believe God wrote a book, and I also believe the book he wrote can change your life. This new series on Song of Songs can certainly do that! If you missed last week, watch the intro sermon here or read daily selections from the sermon here.
Because of your faithful giving and humble service, our church is having a GLOBAL impact. My wife is taking 21 Calvary women to Central America to minister to the girls of Guatemala this week. You can follow their incredible journey on Facebook.
What's New at Calvary
In November, Calvary's weekly disciple-building forum will explore the topics and themes coming up in the Love Song sermon series. Join Pastor Jon Nitta each Sunday for a discussion on a solid biblical theology of human sexuality and an extended Q&A. Looking to plant yourself deeper in the faith? Get in on a Rooted discussion in room 403 from 9:30a-11a.
Sevenglory is excited to announce that their brand new album, Through the Dark, will be released at Calvary Church this Sunday!

Student Ministries is partnering with Cru to pack Boxes of Love in Chicago. Middle school students will head up on Saturday, 11.8, and high school students will go Saturday, 11.22.
