Mystery Retreat--Saturday, September 22 @ 4pm-10 pm (*note the change in time from previous communication)
Drop off at Atonement, pick up at Mount Calvary.

Our Mystery Retreat will feature interactive service, adventure, awesome food and the opportunity to choose next summer's mission trip.

Senior High ministry is a city-wide combined youth model, with leadership from Mount Calvary, Atonement, and Trinity. Since we will be working to build a sense of friendship and community across congregations and schools, the year focuses heavily on retreats. We will meet approximately every other month for a special event or retreat. Friends are always welcome!

Sharing God's Story @ Home

Faith conversations at home are an important way to connect the teaching on Sunday morning to everyday life. To facilitate those conversations, we will be using “Sharing God’s Story at Home” bulletin inserts. This flexible tool connects our Sunday readings to forming faith at home. 

You can pick up the insert during worship. If you missed last Sunday, click here. If you are going to be gone on Sunday, you can get the insert in the prior Thursday Mount Calvary e-newsletter: Messages from the Mount.
