Christmas Tales Concert
Sunday, November 29 • 9:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
We will celebrate our first Sunday of Advent with two very special Sunday morning concerts, featuring singer-songwriter Russ Rosen and his band, as well as delightful storyteller, Justyn Rees.  The ‘Christmas Tales’ presentation highlights songs and stories about the various characters involved in the Christmas story in a way that you’ve never heard before.  This is a very worthwhile presentation to invite work colleagues, neighbors and friends to.

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, November 22 • 9:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
This Sunday’s teaching topic in our series ‘The Reason For God’ will be ‘How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?' and ‘How Can God Send Good People to Hell?’.  The purpose for this teaching series is to dig deeper into various objections to the Christian faith.  It’s also an opportunity to engage in those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching and humble dialogue.

Worship Team Opportunities
The Worship Arts Team has volunteer opportunities available in the new year!  Particular areas of need include sound, media, guitar and drums.  The time commitment is 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Sundays; the number of weeks you volunteer any given month is flexible.  Come with a heart to worship, as well as a desire to learn and grow.  If you are interested, contact Micaela Miller  (micaelas@calvarybaptistedmonton.com) or Alyssa Vander Meulen (alyssa.vdmeulen@gmail.com) by December 7th

Festival of Trees
November 26-29 @ Shaw Conference Centre
This festival raises money to help support the life-saving care provided to patients at the U of A Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic every day.  The Festival of Trees is the home to great holiday shopping!  Kids can visit their Secret Shop, which has exclusive shopping for those 12 and under!  For more info or to buy tickets, visit festivaloftrees.ca.

Babysitter Needed
A young family in the McKernan area is expecting baby #3!  They are looking for a babysitter for Nov. 23 to Dec. 7, as well as potentially part time during the first couple weeks of January.  $15/hr, 7:30 - 4:30 Mon.-Fri. (time is somewhat negotiable, mornings are necessary though). Two girls ages 3 yrs. and 18 mos.  Includes preschool drop-off and pick up, meal prep and light housework.  If interested or wanting more details, text Renee at 1-403-803-5108 or call 587-523-6675.


Pray for our Calvary Youth, as they have a mini-retreat this weekend, from Friday evening until Saturday noon.  Pray for our youth as they are challenged to continue to pursue God in every facet of their lives.
