The following are the announcements for the week of May 16:
Details for Regathering
For up-to-date details on how we are seeking to regather as a church family, see here.
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.
Next Members’ Meeting - RESCHEDULED
Our next members’ business meeting is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, JUNE 6 at 3:00p.m. If gathering restrictions prevent us from holding the meeting in-person at that time, it will either be postponed to a later date. This meeting will include our annual election of elders and deacons and other important business. All members are asked to make it a priority to attend. Agendas and ballots have been distributed to members via email. If you did not receive yours, please let us know. Register at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/rsvp.
Post-Service Zoom Fellowship
Please join us after the service today at 10:15am for a time to hang out and encourage one another virtually. The link will be distributed through email. Please email us if you did not receive the link.
New Photo Directory
We are opening a new church photo directory, which will be available to you online, through our church management platform, Planning Center. This is the same platform through which you have been registering to come to church or do online giving. We are asking everyone to go online and update your picture & information at calvarybaptistchurch.churchcenter.com/profile. Thank you!
Operation Baby Bottle
Our local crisis pregnancy centre, First Place Options, is running their fundraiser known as Operation Baby Bottle, between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Please partner with them through prayer or giving at www.firstplaceoptions.ca/give
New Special Focus Small Group
Coming up in May, you are invited to be a part of a special study of how God works through covenants. The small group is entitled “Kingdom through Covenant” and will run on Sundays at 2:00pm from May 9 - June 27. Sign up at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/smallgroups or email Matt Okum.
Ladies: you’re invited to join the celebration of Fey’s upcoming marriage to Patrick Bondy in June. The shower will be held May 30, 2021 at 3:00pm on Zoom. There is a Facebook event with info, or people can email Kim Okum to RSVP or for more info.
Our youth group is meeting on Wednesday evenings via Zoom due to
Covid-19 restrictions. Fusion runs from 7-9pm, and this year includes youth in
grade 6 and up. Email Jen for more
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!
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.
