Happy New Year!
Our Calvary Leadership Team and Staff would like to wish all of our church family a Happy New Year and the blessing of God’s continued strength, wisdom, and kindness as we enter a new year together.  We pray this will be a year where our trust in God and our love for Him will continue to grow.  As Isaiah said, “Even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall.  But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.  They spread their wings and soar like eagles, they run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.” (The Message)

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, January 3 • 9:00 a.m. @ Calvary
We are embarking on a challenging new teaching series this Sunday entitled ‘Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.’  Our teaching will focus on the premise that emotional health and spiritual health are inseparable, and that our discipleship must include addressing the emotional brokenness that is a part of every one of our lives.  Our goal is to allow Jesus to penetrate to the core of each one of us meet our deepest needs.  Join us in this exciting and meaningful journey during each week’s teaching time!

One Service Only on January 3
Sunday, January 3 • 9:00 a.m. @ Calvary
Due to the number of students and families away over the holidays, there will only be one morning service this coming Sunday.  Please make note of this, and come for our 9:00 o'clock service if you are in town over Christmas.  Thank you for your flexibility!

KidzChurch this Sunday!
Sunday, January 3 • 9:00 a.m. @ Calvary
This Sunday our children are invited to their extended worship time in KidzChurch!  Check-in is at 9:00 a.m. at the children's booth, and then kids go immediately downstairs.  Kids, please do your best to help get your parents ready for church on time!

Wedding Shower for Claire and Brennan
Monday, January 4 • 7:00 p.m. @ Rusty & Mercy Foerger's
Come celebrate the upcoming wedding of Claire Kelly and Brennan Black at this fun co-ed shower!  It will be hosted at Rusty & Mercy’s home (9611 – 77 Ave.), very close to Calvary.  If you can contribute a food item, please let Delores Wiens know (780-999-5845), and if you would like to be part of a group gift for Claire and Brennan, please contact Erin Camponi (780-224-5963).

Update from the Syrian Sponsorship Welcoming Team
Monday, January 11 • 6:00 p.m. @ John-West's home
Our next meeting will be on January 11 at 6 p.m. at Geoff and Liz's house.  We will have a meal together and plan out this new adventure at Calvary.  Hopefully we will be able to determine the family our church will be sponsoring and then assign tasks to different team members.  Thanks for your participation!

The last few weeks were spent filling our forms needed for moving forward in sponsoring a Syrian family.  The Leadership Team has sent a letter confirming their support of this initiative to the Christian & Missionary Alliance.  Hopefully by early January the federal government will have more Syrian families to choose from. 

Engagement News!
Congratulations to Caroline Etter and Hans Larsen on their recent engagement on December 20!  Caroline & Hans participate in Calvary’s Young Adult ministry, and we wish them many blessings as they prepare for married life together.
