The following are the announcements for the week of September 20:
Members' Business Meeting - September 27
We are planning to have an in-person members’ meeting on September 27 at 6:00pm, which will include our annual officer election. In order to prepare accordingly, we need you to sign up in advance at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/rsvp. Members can view the agenda and election ballot in their email or posted at the church building. If you did not receive one, please let us know. If you are uncomfortable attending in person, proxy votes are allowed. See your email for details.

If you are interested in or want to be baptized soon, please speak with one of the pastors. We are planning to hold a baptism sometime in September.
Our youth group is planning on meeting together again on September 23 at Greenbelt Church (839 Shefford Rd.). The evenings run from 7-9pm, and this year will include youth in grade 6 and up. Due to Covid restrictions, youth must register in advance here. Email Jen for more information.

Welcome to Matt Okum, who has joined us as our latest pastoral intern. You can reach him (or send him a note of welcome) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Refugee Resettlement Team
Our refugee family will be coming to Canada soon! Please continue to pray for this endeavour to be a blessing to the refugee family, and ask God to strengthen all the people involved in assisting this family.
Andrea D'Silva's Baby Shower
Ladies! You are invited to a baby shower for Andrea D'Silva on Sunday, September 20th at 1:00pm at Springhurst Park. You can find her baby gift registry here. Please RSVP with Andrea Aldaba or Johannah Sabino if you’d like to attend.
Gabriella Andrade (Puente)'s Baby Shower
All ladies are invited to Gabriella’s baby shower on Sunday, October 4th from 1-3pm at Springhurst Park. You can find her baby gift registry here. Please RSVP with Katie Ochin or Laura Vandersluis if you’d like to attend.
We are still in need of people willing to serve in hospitality (as greeters and ushers) and in children’s ministry (as teachers or assistants). If you can give of yourself to love people in these areas, that would be wonderful. Please let us know by emailing us.
There are a number of great new books in our library. However, with the prayer time being in the library between services, it may be harder to check books out. So be sure to peruse and take a book out either before the 9:00 service or after the 11:00!
Some in our church family have sensitivities to scents and chemicals. For the health and consideration of others, we’d like to ask everyone to please use unscented hygiene and cosmetic products on Sunday mornings. Thank you for your consideration.
If English is your second language and having a copy of the sermon would help you understand better, please let us know and we’ll get you a printed copy of the sermon.
