Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday, March 1 • 6:30 p.m. @ Calvary
On Ash Wednesday Calvary is marking the beginning of the season of Lent (and our new teaching series entitled "Signposts . . . on the Road to the Cross") with a special contemplative service of singing, prayers and reflections.  Join us for an hour long service that will help orient us on this road as we remember, over the next 40 days, the incarnation of Christ on earth, his temptation, his ministry, his death on Good Friday, and resurrection on Easter Sunday

Who goeth in the way which Christ hath gone,
Is much more sure to meet with him, than one
                    That travelleth by-ways:
Perhaps my God, though he be far before,
May turn, and take me by the hand, and more
                    May strengthen my decays. 

- George Herbert (1633)

Annual General Meeting Sunday Evening!
Sunday, February 26 • 7:00 p.m. @ Calvary
Come join us at our Annual General Meeting, as we review Ministry Reports and discuss various upcoming initiatives at Calvary. If you would like to read the ministry reports that will be reviewed at this Sunday's AGM, please email info@calvarybaptistedmonton.com.

Ministry Opportunities!
We have a busy and growing children's ministry here at Calvary but lack enough volunteers to serve our children, and subsequently our parents, effectively and safely.  Several opportunities include:
  • Elementary Kids Teacher
  • Beginner Preschool Teacher
  • Helpers
  • One-on-one Helpers
The commitment is every other Sunday during the first service.  If you can invest in these littlest members of our church community, please contact Krista Ewert ASAP!  The need is pretty urgent!
 
"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."

Teaching Topic This Sunday at Calvary
Sunday, February 26 • 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
This will be the final Sunday in our "Money Matters" teaching series.  Is there a reward for our generosity, and if so, how do we get it?  As you prepare for this Sunday, please take time to read Hebrews 11:10 – 26.
