Weekly Announcements

The following are the announcements for the week of November 29:

Details for Regathering

For up-to-date details on how we are seeking to regather as a church family, see here.

Scent Request

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.

Advent Devotionals

Tune in on Facebook tonight at 6pm (and for the next 3 Sundays of Advent), as we share some devotional thoughts for Advent.

Christmas Eve

As long as we are able to, we plan to have a Christmas Eve service on December 24. Stay tuned for the times and details, but mark your calendars now.

Pastor Kenny’s Ordination Service
We welcome you to tune in to Pastor Kenny’s ordination service on Saturday at 4:00pm via the Facebook livestream. 

Service Teams Needed
If the Lord moves in your heart to help with some service needs right now at Calvary, we likely have a place for you to serve! Some of the key places we could use you are in greeting and ushering, screening and check-in, and livestream operation. You will be trained in whichever place you want to serve. Please email Pastor Matt or Pastor Kenny for more info or to sign up.

Small Groups
Our small groups (virtual, at-church, or in-home) are all off and running. There are a very limited number of spaces still available. Sign up at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/smallgroups

2 New Special-Focus Small Groups
Starting November, we have been hosting 2 virtual, short-term small groups with a special focus:

1. Understanding Your Identity (for Men): 5 weeks, Wednesdays, November 11-December 9. This group will be kicked off by a mandatory virtual workshop from Impactus on Saturday, November 7, from 9:00-11:30am. (Cost: $15) The workshop is open to all men, and the small group will be a follow-up to this.

2. The Money Challenge: 5 weeks, Thursdays, November 5-December 3. We will be going through Art Rainer’s book, The Money Challenge: 30 Days of Discovering God’s Design for You and Your Money together. If you’re ready to read and grow in the way your finances connect to your walk with Christ, this is the group for you. Space is limited.

Sign up for either group at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/smallgroups

Fusion Youth

Our youth group is meeting again 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 information. 

Library News

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!

Sermon Transcripts

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.
