New Children's Ministry Pastor
We are very pleased to introduce Krista Ewert as Calvary’s new Children’s Ministry Pastor.  Krista comes to us with a wealth of children’s ministry experience, a great passion for the spiritual nurturing of children, and an extensive creative arts background.  We’re thrilled with what Krista will bring to this important ministry at Calvary.

Syrian Family Update
Monday, April 25 • 6:00 p.m. @ John-West's
Thanks again to everyone who has so kindly given towards helping our sponsorship family get out of the chaos in Syria.  We are very happy to see that our family is in the next step of the process.   We must now wait patiently for their arrival which could still be up to 6 months.  Our next meeting for the Syrian Family Support Team will be a dinner at Geoff and Liz’s home on April 25th.  Thank you!

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, April 17 • 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
Our teaching topic for this Sunday is “Reframed: Ordinary People; Extraordinary God.”  The ReFrame series is intended to help all of us to express our faith in everyday life, to encounter Jesus afresh and allow His story to shape our own, at work and at home, between Sundays, and in all the places of our lives.

A New Baby to Celebrate
Congratulations to Josh & Sam Stauffer on the birth of their new baby, Felix Jonathan Stauffer, who was born weighing 6 lbs. 14 oz. on Saturday, March 26th.  Josh & Sam also foster parent a little toddler named Dayton.  Congratulations to Josh & Sam on their growing family!

Calvary Women's Retreat

All Calvary women are invited to this retreat for the purpose of coming together to ask God about his dreams for us as individuals, for our families, for our community, and for our church.  Study material will be Restless by Jennie Allen.  For more info, contact Melanie Salte or Wanda Thiessen.

Housemate Wanted

Truth & Reconciliation Gathering
Saturday, May 4 • 9:00 a.m. in St. Albert
This interactive workshop is intended to help non-Indigenous communities/peoples begin (or continue) their path of reconciliation with First Peoples, to equip them to live in a good and just way with our First Nations sisters and brothers, and to better understand traditional struggles of faith and life set within the traditions and learning styles of Aboriginal Peoples.  Click here for more info and to register.
