Dear Calvary,

I am thinking that Sunday is going to be a little busy and I wanted to make sure that I offered all of you my sincere thanks for your encouragement and support over the last 15 years. You have made my time with you a real blessing. You have all taught me so much and I can't begin to express all of the gratitude I have for our journey together. So on behalf of the whole Leo family, Thank You!!!!

Advent Wreathe Making
There was great participation.  If you did not get an opportunity to make a wreathe, supplies will be in the room across from the office Dec. 6.
Plan to save the metal ring to use for next year.  If you would prefer not to store it, bring it to church after the holidays and it will be kept here.

Sunday School resumes this Sunday, Dec. 6.

Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


See you at Church!
