Weekly Announcements

The following are the announcements for the week of November 28:

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.

Members' Business Meeting

All members are asked to attend our 4th Quarterly business meeting on TODAY at 1:30p.m. Part of the agenda will be approving our 2022 annual budget. Agendas have been distributed over email. Please sign up to attend at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/rsvp.

Baby Shower for Kelsey Rafuse

Ladies, come celebrate Kelsey's baby girl, happening next week, Dec. 5th from 1-3pm, at Calvary Baptist Church. Please RSVP to Erika DeSchiffart, Andrea D’Silva,  or Andrea Aldaba so they can plan lunch accordingly.

Gifts requests are gift cards, meals after baby is born and diapers of all sizes.

Special Christmas Gift Project

As part of a multi-church effort, we will be collecting gifts/ shoeboxes for Syrian refugee children who have resettled in Ottawa worth $30. One large gift item is also an option. Instructions:

 1. See list of children on the bulletin board at exit staircase. Tear off the name/s from the list. If you are not able to come to church, we’ll send you the list.

2. Suggested items are age appropriate toys/ games, books, winter clothing, socks, school supplies, and hygiene items.

3.  Include a card for the child (with their complete name on the envelope). If you prefer to use shoeboxes, they are available as well. 

 Return gifts to church by NEXT WEEK, December 5. If it needs a pick up, or for any questions/ suggestions, please contact Tim or Tess MacKenzie

Small groups are our key discipleship ministry at Calvary. They provide practical ways to study and apply Scripture, connect in community and fellowship, love others compassionately, and pray together. See the details or sign up online at calvarybaptistchurch.ca/smallgroups.
