Summer is my favorite time of the year—relaxing on the back deck, taking long bike rides by the lake, gathering with friends to grill…and baseball season! I love it all. Summer is a new season in the life of our church, too. I’ve been looking forward to our new summer sermon series, God Songs, and I can tell you that we’re already getting ready for our huge Father’s Day in the Park event!
Yes, summer is a different season in the life of the church, and we need to be in the church as much as ever. Let me encourage you to make worship a priority, even when you’re on vacation, and keep gathering with friends from church to stay in one another’s lives. Our calendar changes to emphasize community all summer long. You can try out our Life Groups format at Summer Life Nights beginning in June and get to know some new people. Or minister to kids during our popular Vacation Bible School week, July 10-13. (Volunteers tell us it’s the best week of their summer!)
Speaking of new seasons, we have a new worship team member joining the band this Sunday. I can’t wait to introduce Steven Burkholder to you as our new Assistant Director of Worship. It's a great God-story how we found the best guy for the job right in our own backyard. See you Sundays this summer.
Father's Day in the Park
Invite friends (and your dad) to Father’s Day in the Park! This annual event on June 18 brings our whole church family together for one big worship service at Central Park in downtown Valpo, and we like to bring along as many friends from the community as we can. You’ll want to come early with a camp chair or lawn blanket to get a good spot for the 10:30a service. Sip free coffee brewed by Fluid and snack on yummy treats and food from local vendors. See you there!
Sundays @ 8:15a
Parents of Calvary Kids, we need you this summer! Volunteer to hang out with our kids one Sunday a month through August. Contact April Millard to say "Yes, I'll help!"
Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a loving environment for moms to gather and enjoy life together two Fridays a month. Register at our table this Sunday.
