Family Potluck & Discussion Time
Sunday, March 5 • 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. @ Calvary
You are invited to come and share a potluck meal and conversation regarding the key initiatives that were presented at the AGM.  Each family is asked to bring a main course to be shared, and singles and young couples are asked to bring a salad or dessert.  We will eat together as families, after which children will be entertained with special child care. 
 
New Coffee Bar Fundraiser
Calvary’s coffee bar proceeds from March will be used to support Andrew Schroeder as he participates in a Robotic Submarine Competition on behalf of the U. of A.  To see more details regarding this competition and to see the video that Andrew produced, click here.

We hope you’re aware that a team of writers is posting blogs to our Calvary website each week during Lent!  Take some time to read these reflections regularly, and pass them along to others who might also benefit from them.  You can find them at:  www.calvarybaptistedmonton.com/blog/.

Pray that this season of Lent would be for you a walking toward something, a renewed experience of grace!  “O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”  (Psalm 63:1)
