July Choir

July Choir
 
YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN the Sanctuary Choir for a day in July and they are rearranging their rehearsal schedule to fit you in!  Sing one Sunday, or all four!
 
Instead of Wednesday evening rehearsals in July, we will gather Sundays at 8:45am for a 45-minute rehearsal of the music for that day only.  Breakfast foods will follow.  After Sunday School, the choir will reconvene to warm up and put the finishing touches in time for worship.
 
No audition necessary. 
Simply bring yourself and your joyful noise to the choir room any Sunday in July at 8:45 for music and fun!  See you there?  Hope so!

Donations Needed for Chrysalis House

The Chrysalis House is a nonprofit organization that helps women with substance abuse problems get back on their feet and they are right at Calvary's back door. Many of the women in the program come to the ROC for exercise and recreation, as well as volunteering at the ROC. Calvary has a small closet where we are able to provide clothing and miscellaneous items for these women and their children. The new or gently used items needed are listed below:

Women's fall/winter clothing
Jewelry
Perfume
Bath and body items
Purses and shoes
Winter clothing for children babies through 4T
Small toys or books for children through age 4

Items can be taken to the ROC office or dropped off at the Donation Station. Contact Brian Varble or Maurine Mitchell for more information. 

Cookie Bakers Needed for College Ministry

The College Ministry needs volunteers to bake cookies for our weekly Cookie Ministry.  Everyone knows that college students love homemade treats so each week we deliver cookies to our first time college visitors.  The obligation is to bring 2-3 dozen homemade cookies to the church office on your designated Sunday (one time each semester).  We package and deliver them to the students.  Just sign up and we'll mail you a Cookie Ministry schedule as well as a reminder card on your designated week.  It's an easy way to share God's love with students who are far from home and looking to connect with a church in Lexington.
