Co-ed Youth and Adult Volleyball League Starting in October

Calvary Baptist Church is hosting a Co-ed Volleyball League this Fall. Games will be played on Monday nights starting October 6th. This is a very laid back league that prioritizes fun and fellowship. We would love to have churches, different work places, and any other groups of people sign up as a team. The season will consist of 5-6 regular matches (one a week) plus a single elimination tournament. The cost is only $60 dollars per team. Teams can have no more than 6 players but have to have at least 4 players on the floor at any time.  If you have any more questions please email me at jrbaker23@gmail.com or call 232-8955. 

Sign up your team with JR Baker no later than Monday, September 22nd.

Kids Hope Meeting
Do you love working with children?  We will have a Kids Hope Mentor meeting on Sunday, August 24 at 4:45 in the Fireside Room for both returning mentors and those of you who would like to learn about the program.  If you have one extra hour per week, you have the time to be a Kids Hope mentor.
 
 A mother of a child in the program last year said, “It doesn’t take much to touch the hearts of our children.  The simplest things are so greatly appreciated, and I think the children take away more from this more than we can ever imagine.”
 
 Do you have the time to be a friend and an encourager to a child who needs someone? Please consider volunteering for Kids Hope.You really can make a difference in the life of a child.

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. 

Volunteers Needed for the College Lunch, Fall Semester

The College Ministry needs Sunday School classes who are willing to volunteer to help serve at our weekly, free college lunches.  We only need 4-6 people to help.  It takes about an hour of your time and all servers, class members and their families are invited to join us for lunch.  
If your class is willing to help, please fill out the volunteer form in your Sunday School folders.  We will contact you soon to discuss the schedule.  Thank you for sharing God's love.
