Greetings Calvary Members, Families, & Friends!
It's March! Can Spring be around the corner? I hope so! I'm ready to say good-bye to the snow and cold and hello to the flowers and warmth!
This month of March not only starts the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday on the 2nd, but I would also like to announce that Calvary Lutheran Church is going to start a new service mission called CALVARY CARES. Calvary Cares is a way for us to show our love for each other and those around us and to continue our mission of Showing Everyone Life in Christ. Jesus says in John 15:12, "Love one another as I have loved you."
Let's face it, we all need a little bit of help at sometime in our life. That's what Calvary Cares is all about. It's members helping members, then branching out to help family and friends, and then branching out to help people in the community. It can be anything from a phone call, visit, card, meal, ride to an appointment, help with yard work, housework, or just moving something that is too heavy for you. The list can be endless. It is mostly little things, but remember those little things can mean the world to someone when they are unable to do it.
Any Calvary Member can be a part of the Calvary Cares Team. Just fill out a form that will be available at church starting this month. I have also attached a copy at the end of this email. We will be talking more about it after church this Sunday. For more information or questions, feel free to talk to Pastor, Jim, or myself anytime!
If you are a person that could use a little help, please let us know. Sometimes it is hard to ask, but just know we are here for you!
