"What Makes God Mad?"


We continue to walk with Jesus in Mark 11 and see Him display anger which was a surprise to everyone. When you think of what would make God angry what comes to mind?  What might God do when He is angry?  How long does His anger last?


Listen to this and all of the sermons on the “Sunday Morning” page, right here at our church’s website.

New Class Starting Up: We are beginning an exciting course on Sunday mornings from 8:30-9:30 called "Emotionally Healthy Spirituality". In the course you will be challenged to look at your life and shift some things around so that you are growing closer to Jesus and His priorities for your life. This requires work on your part but anything worth doing is worth doing well. We will start March 4th. Sign up with Nancy Nelson.




Are you a Church Member yet?   

Talk with Pastor Randy or your Shepherd about how to be in on the decision making team at Calvary.

AND speaking of membership:

Becoming a member of Calvary involves a few simple steps.

1. You have to be a follower of Jesus Christ demonstrated by sharing when you asked Jesus to forgive you and be your savior. You have been baptized as a believer who has chosen to follow Jesus and declared it by being baptized by immersion.

2. You agree with the goals and priorities of the church.

3. You want to use your gifts to serve God however you are able.

If this is you, please talk to your Shepherd and we will meet with you to talk it over.




SAVE THE DATE!

Do you love people?


Stepping out of your comfort zone - extending your hand and not knowing how they're going to respond - that's what's called living by faith.


Examples:

*I think God wants me to call this person.

*I think God wants me to invite this person over.

*I think God wants me to start a conversation with this person at work who's really kind of a jerk, and nobody likes. Perfect! What a great person to target.

“But wait, they don't deserve love. They don't deserve the grace of God like we do!"

NONE of us DESERVE anything from God.


We want to be a church that's known by love.

Will you look for someone to love every day?

Talent Night: We are planning a fun evening where you can have the opportunity to do whatever you can do. Let's see what we can come up with. This is for all ages, beginners to experienced, serious or funny. It is all about the family entertaining the family and encouraging one another.




Pick up the new church directory: It is a new format which contains more information. You can also make additions and changes more easily. Thanks to Lori for putting this together.




Faith Stories: We are putting together a book of your faith stories. It is a good discipline to write out when you came to Jesus in a short and compelling format. Here is an example of a simple outline:

1. My life before I became a Christian.

2. The circumstances that surround me making a decision.

3. What I said to turn my life over to Jesus.

4. My life now with God in control (hallelujah)

Give them to Lori in the church office.




Growing Deeper This Winter:

Would you like to meet with 1 or 2 other men or women once a week for the fall season, to study the Bible, pray, and get back on track with Jesus?  You determine the where and when.  Talk to Pastor Randy to get linked up with a leader.

This is low key, you determine your agenda, but guaranteed to help you grow deeper.




DISCOVERYLAND is a full hour of music, games, and Bible discovery, and surprises for children ages 4 to grade 5, which runs concurrent with the adult service upstairs.


Pre-Service Prayer meets in the Youth Building from 9:15 to 9:50 am.



Food Shelf Collection:

We have a bin to gather food for Hastings Family Service. Thanks for giving.

See Carmen if you have any questions.



Take 5 to Pray:

At noon every day, why not put aside what you are doing and take 5 minutes to pray.

Let God lead you for what you should pray.


Pray for:

Gary dealing with health related issues

Ron recovering from emergency surgery

Dean’s health issues

Emily and Aiden on the death of their mother

Katy's interviews for exciting new job

The family and friends of Little Eva who passed away

Beth's recovery

Betty's health issues

Deb’s recovering from partial knee surgery and other health issues

Reenie’s health

Noah for relief from ongoing symptoms from his car accident

Our leaders in government

Those battling addiction




Are you praying faithfully for your child from the name that you drew?




"I can do that!"  Here are some opportunities for you to get involved in events that we have coming up:


Volunteer Opportunities:

Sign Up to make coffee - we need to have 10 people each take a week.

Also needed are 2 more Sunday School teachers on a rotational basis. Talk to Linda or Molly.


Body Parts Missing!

As a part of this church, you are a part of the body of Christ.  As in the human body each organ has its part, and all parts are needed, so in the church every body is needed to do their part.  Currently we have some holes that need filling.

We need people to:

1. Make the coffee

2. Help with the Youth Group starting up

3. Be a greeter

Please talk to Ron Logid or Pastor Randy if you can use your body to help "the body". Thanks!


**SNOW SHOVELERS!**

We need people to sign up for a week (Monday-Sunday) to make sure our sidewalks are clean.




Military Bible Stick is a tool which is being used to supply audio MP3 copies of the New Testament to men and women in active military service. Chaplains give these out to anyone who requests them free of charge.

That's where you come in.

$25 pays for one Military Bible Stick, plus, if they request it, they can receive one for their spouse at home, and special versions for their children. We have used our benevolent offerings from the past two Sundays for this ministry. If you haven’t already, please make checks out to Calvary and we will send the entire amount to Faith Comes By Hearing. Thank You!




THANKS for giving $1,051 to the ministry of Teen Challenge!




Thank You! For your generosity giving to the gift tree for Hastings Family Service.

Another successful year that many children will have a gift for Christmas who might not have if not for you.




THANKS! For all of your help with the shoe boxes and the gifts for Hastings Family Service.

These gifts are for more than just making people happy.

Together, we make a difference for the kingdom!
