Faith & Family Night at the Lexington Legends Game
Saturday, July 25th

This is a whole family event for Calvary Baptist Youth.  Discounted tickets are $7.00 and include the baseball game, a concert by the group Royal Tailor, and fireworks.  Please let Ryan or Maria Harrington know if your family would like to attend or sign up online.

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!

Grilling on the Green

Grilling on the Green
July 22 and 29
6:00-8:00pm
Grilling on the Green (grilling hamburgers and hotdogs for the homeless) is back this Summer.  It is a wonderful opportunity for Calvary to meet a need with the downtown community and to engage and share the love of Christ with individuals.  We do need YOU to participate.  We will have signup on June 14 and 21.  We need 50 people to make this a great event.  Stop by the table and join the team.

Weekend Missions Opportunities

We will take two different mission teams to the Galilean Home in Casey County, KY.  The Galilean Home takes care of the children of incarcerated women until they are released from prison.  The home takes the children to the prison to visit their mothers once a week.  The Galilean Home also houses severely handicapped adults in another home on the campus.  This is an exciting new ministry partnership for Calvary to be involved in.
 
Men’s Carpentry Trip
May 15-16
Cost:  $75 all inclusive
There will be several work projects to complete over a couple of days.
 
Family Trip
July 24-25

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.
