The Women’s Ministry is providing Care Kits for our neighbors in the community who are unhoused, unsheltered and food insecure. Each Care Kit contains facial tissue, wipes, hand sanitizer, granola bars, fruit snacks, trail mix, disposable trash bag, a pair of socks, a water bottle, and a Christian message of love, hope, and encouragement. These Care Kits are available to the congregation at no cost for pick up in the Narthex on Sunday mornings to distribute to individuals they meet in the community. More will be available each Sunday as needed.
The men meet for breakfast and Bible study on the first and third Saturdays, Meetings are currently on hold
The Lunch and the Word weekly Bible study meets every Tuesday. For the fall semester we will be using a study guide from our national church (ELCA) called Daily Faith Practices.
Each week we will be studying the second lesson for the upcoming Sunday. This will enhance our Sunday worship experience since Sunday sermons we usually focus on the Gospel.
Bring your lunch and your Bible, or use a Bible from church.
Come spend time together s sharing a meal and the word of God.
Two new support groups starting at Mount Calvary Facilitated by Pastor Carole Parmeter Dyer
Wednesdays - 11 am -12:30 pm
Mondays - 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Whether it was the death of a loved one, the loss of physical mobility, losses incurred during the pandemic, or another great loss in your life, grief is meant to be shared.
Since everyone’s experience with grief is unique, this group will help you find your own way of grieving and how to move forward with your grief.
You will find friends who care and understand what you are going through.
Finding Pathways Through Grief and Loss is a mutual help support group.
The group is not psychotherapy but it will help you navigate the difficulties of this new (or old) experience. No one has to talk, but everyone is encouraged to. Each week, we will discuss the issues and concerns common to bereaved people, including:
· What to make of the anger, discouragement, depression and guilt experienced in grief.
· How to deal with unfair expectations of others.
· Where to look for people you can trust to help you.
· How to manage the holidays and other special occasions.
· Who to consider for additional support if you need it.
· How to take care of yourself physically.
