Refugee Family Sponsorship Update
We had over 25 people come out to our 2nd sponsorship meeting Monday evening! We were happy to have individuals from all demographics come to not only learn more about supporting a family from Syria, but also to help. The planning team agreed to sponsor a family with 3 school age children, and Geoff has informed the agency of Calvary's intent to sponsor this particular family.

The administration team will now fill out all the required forms and we will continue to meet to see this move of God at Calvary go forward. Meanwhile if anyone is interested in watching a very good movie on the experiences of refugees, please take a look at the movie "The Good Life." This movie portrays many experiences of the refugees, as well as people who support them. The link to the movie is: http://putlocker.is/watch-the-good-lie-online-free-putlocker.html

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, January 17 • 9:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m.
Our teaching topic for this Sunday is “Going Back In Order To Go Forward.”  We are engaged in a teaching series called "Emotionally Healthy Spirituality."  Our teaching is focusing on the premise that emotional health and spiritual health are inseparable, leading us to address 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 our lives in order to meet our deepest needs.  Join us!

Youth Parents Meeting
Sunday, January 24 • 11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon @ Calvary
Parents please mark down on your calendars our upcoming youth parents meeting.  We will be meeting downstairs at 11:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Sunday, January 24.  Can't wait to discuss the up and coming goals of the ministry with you and chat about your children.

A New Baby to Celebrate at Calvary!
Congratulations to Nathan & Lindsey-Rae Schroeder on the birth of their new baby, Connor James Schroeder, who was born weighing 6 lbs. 10 oz. on Thursday, January 7.  Connor is their first baby.  Blessings to Nathan & Lindsey-Rae at the start of this beautiful new venture!
