Dear Calvary Community,

I want to extend to you a warm encouragement to attend worship on Sunday. All Saints’ Day is a time for us to reflect on the gift of our life in Christ. A paraphrase of the beginning of this week’s Epistle lesson is this:  “It is in Christ that we find who we are and what we are living for.”

All Saints’ Day celebrates the breadth of our purpose as Christians on earth, from the moment we are baptized to the last breaths we take, and opportunities learn and live love and grace in between.

In every service, you’ll have an opportunity to make your pledge for the coming year. How do you plan to offer your time, talent and/or treasure as a living member of the body of Christ expressed through Calvary Church in 2020? We give joyfully, each of us according to our circumstances, as stakeholders in this community.

Roll back your clocks an hour on Saturday night, enjoy your extra hour of sleep, and be prepared to make your pledge on Sunday. A feast of pastries and egg soufflé following the 9:30 and 10:30 services. Coffee and donuts await the early risers at 8:00.

See you on Sunday,
Allison

Following 10:30 Worship

Life transitions have a way of upending us and leaving us spiritually seeking. 
Have you experienced a move, taken on a caretaker role, become (or are preparing to become) an empty nester, retired, graduated, or had a child or grandchild in the last year?

Come and explore with the Reverend Bill Scrivener, retired chaplain from Cincinnati Children's Hospital ways to encounter God in the midst of the anticipation, chaos, and aftermath of transitions.
