Rev. Cynthia at Caffè Nero Tuesdays in October
On Tuesdays from 7-9 PM in October, Rev. Cynthia will be at Caffè Nero, 321 Broadway in Arlington Center. All are invited to join her for coffee and conversation.
Story: In My Image 10/18
Story: In My Image is a six-week exploration for women in how we see ourselves and how others see us. We create visual representations designed to reveal our personal strengths and complex beauties, both to ourselves and those who experience our work. The course is inspired by and designed to create a bridge between the Mama Project in South Africa and our group in Arlington. All levels of artistic skills are encouraged, all stories are supported, and all women are invited. Church membership is not required, so invite your friends! The group will meet Thursdays from 10:30-noon, October 18-November 29 (no meeting on Nov 22) and will be facilitated by Rev. Cynthia and Jenna Gillespie, M.S.W., C.Phil.
Theology on Tap 10/16
Adults of all ages are invited to meet at Common Ground, 319 Broadway, at 7 PM once a month to discuss deep theological topics over drinks of their choice. Ryan Harrison, our Director of Christian Education, will lead the group, and the first topic will be Challenging Bible Stories. Join us for some intriguing conversation as we get to know each other and the more challenging issues involved in our faith.
Book Club 10/23
On Tuesday, October 23rd, the Book Club will meet at 7 PM in the first-floor Parlor to discuss Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. All are welcome!
Consecration Sunday 10/28
On Consecration Sunday, October 28th, we ask attendees to make a financial commitment to Calvary’s missionary, benevolent, and educational ministries in this community and around the world. We emphasize the need of the giver to give for his or her own spiritual development, rather than on the need of the church to receive, and treat people like followers of Jesus Christ who want to give unselfishly as an act of discipleship. Consecration Sunday encourages people to ponder “What percentage of my income is God calling me to give?”
On Sundays in October, we will inform everyone about Consecration Sunday during Stewardship Moments. On the 28th, we will have a guest preacher and everyone will have the opportunity to make a pledge. This is voluntary and attendees will not feel singled out if they choose not to submit a pledge card. All are welcome to the celebration lunch following.
Calvary Conversation for Prospective New Members 11/4
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a member of Calvary Church, please join Rev. Cynthia Good for a conversation on Sunday, November 4th after worship, location to be announced. We will welcome new members during the service on Sunday, November 18th.
Yard Cleanup 11/17
Please join the Trustees for the Fall Leaf Cleanup of the church lawn and grounds. Bring rakes and gloves; leaf bags will be provided. All ages are welcome to join the fun. We will be working on Saturday the 17th from 9 AM until noon, with a rain date of December 1st. Please join us, even if you can stay for only an hour. See you then!
