Back to School Prayer 8/14/18

It seems as if we've been here before, and we have.  A new school year is beginning. It is an exciting time. Teachers and administrators and support staff are welcoming boys and girls, middle schoolers and high school students, college and graduate students.  The educational process continues, even as it begins again.  We pray this day for every educator, every student, every administrator, every member of support teams, every bus driver, every crossing guard.  We pray especially today for those in the Calvary family who are such a key part of this amazing educational effort.  Give them a sense of your presence as they teach, as they learn, as they meet new students, as they meet new friends.  Strengthen  them for the journey, and empower them to grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with You, Lord God, and with all those they encounter.  This we pray in Jesus name, Amen.

Game On!™ is a week of gearing up for the big game. Kids will begin each day at the Pep Rally. From the Pep Rally, kids will gather at the Field House where they will be equipped to dig deep into God’s Word. Kids will learn that God has given them everything they need through His divine power. Each day kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions. Whether you’re the type to root from the stands, march in the band, cheer on the field, or hustle to the line, the time is now—it’s Game On!  Online registration here.

Prep Day is Sunday, June 3rd.  All VBS leaders and workers are invited to come prepare and set up  their rooms for Bible School from 4:00-6:00pm.   Also, we need  kitchen and snack help. Contact Carrie Beth if you can help.

Sunday Worship 6/3

Invite a friend, dress casually, and come to combined worship at 11:00 in the sanctuary. (Sunday school is at 9:45.) During worship we'll celebrate baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We will focus on the “tie” that binds us together as Christians with Dr. Baker's sermon based on 1 Corinthians 11:23-28.

Immediately following the service, we'll have five food trucks outside the Rodes Avenue door for Food Truck Fellowship . Tables and chairs will be set up on the green space so that we can have a fellowship meal. The Rodes Avenue Ramblers will provide music for the event.
 
This Sunday promises to be a great fellowship Sunday at our church. Hope to see you there!

Read more about Sunday 6/3 (and koinonia) in Dr. Baker's 5/31/18 Pastor's Paragraph here.

Children's Sunday School Note: It's time for Bible study, fun activities & cool refreshments at Summer Celebration.  Bring something from the yard that God made.  Kids can wear their favorite summer wear.  Friends are welcome!
