WELCOME TO WORSHIP AT CALVARY CHURCH, STONINGTON. We invite you to participate in all parts of our service, including the Holy Communion. We also invite you to explore the many ways you might become involved in the life of Calvary – we would love to have you join with us in serving God and growing in faith.
ADULT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION: CALVARY FILM FESTIVAL! As part of this year’s Adult Christian Education program, we are pleased to once again offer a variety of engaging films, to be shown in the Parish Hall, free of charge, on selected Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Our next film will be Jeremiah Johnson: In a quiet performance (he speaks perhaps 30 lines of dialogue in the whole film), loner Robert Redford seeks isolation in the mountains, but he’s forced to battle nature’s inconstancy and nearly every American Indian in the vicinity to survive. Redford persuaded director Sydney Pollack to film in Utah, ensuring that the movie – based on Vardis Fisher’s novel – would have a breathtaking backdrop - Join us in the Parish Hall on April 21.
THE PAWCATUCK NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER’S EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY is most in need of broth (chicken or beef – we need lots), clam chowder, baked beans (much requested – we never have enough), canned whole potatoes (much requested), canned chicken and canned ham, canned corn beef hash, canned chili, canned fruit (pineapple is very popular), and if you’re able to bring meat items to be frozen, they need hot dogs, chicken, and hamburger. Many thanks for helping to feed your neighbors. Vicki Anderson - 860-599-3285 x14 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOMELESS HOSPITALITY CENTER: Even with spring in the air, blankets or sleeping bags are still needed by the Homeless Hospitality Center! I’m told that the need continues throughout the spring and summer; if you have no home, a covering when sleeping outside is always appreciated! Drop your donations in the church or church office any time, and they will be delivered to the Homeless Hospitality Center. If you have any questions, contact Phyllis in the office at 860-535-1181 or at email@example.com. Thank you for helping to keep someone warm.
AFRICAN CRAFTS AND JEWELRY will be on sale on Sunday, May 3, following both services. All proceeds support mission work with children in East Central Africa. Plan to do your Mothers’ Day shopping on that day as the jewelry and crafts make lovely gifts. The Uganda Mission Team.
Coffee Hour is a great opportunity for fellowship. Please join us after the 10:00 a.m. service for this time of sharing and getting to know each other. We are looking for volunteers to host a coffee hour. May 24 and 31 are still open! Think spring! Coffee is provided. All that is required is set-up and some snacks. A sign-up sheet and take home instructions are located on the kitchen door in the Parish Hall or contact Evelynn Lyons at 860-535-3286 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
