Refugee Sponsorship Info Night
Thursday, December 3 • 7:30 p.m. @ John-West's home
Everyone who is interested in participating in refugee sponsorship with Calvary is invited to Liz and Geoff John-West's home on Thursday, December 3 at 7:30 pm. We are going to have someone share their experience with sponsorship from both sides of the story.  We will also talk about next steps in applying through the sponsorship program.  Please refer to the church directory for the John-West's address or email Malcolm Scott at mscottradiologist@gmail.com for the address.  Please join us!

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, December 6 • 9:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
Our next teaching series is entitled, ‘Prepare Him Room: Preparing to Receive the Gift of Christ.’ We consider Advent (the 4 weeks leading up to Christmas) to be an annual season of preparation.  As we consider the preparation of Zechariah, the shepherds and Mary, we can see what preparing ourselves for the coming of Christ can look like, as well as understand why preparation can deepen our experience of Christ’s coming and presence. 

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
Thursday, December 24 • 5:00 p.m. @ Calvary
This annual celebration is a brief, 45 minute service to pause in our pre-Christmas activities. The service is filled with music, Scripture, reflections, and meaning!  The service starts at 5:00 p.m. sharp!!  Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early so that everyone is settled by the start of the service.

Steve Bell Christmas Trio
Sunday, December 6 • 7:30 p.m. @ Beulah Alliance Church
An evening with the Steve Bell Trio highlighting his 25th anniversary album, ‘Pilgrimage.’  The evening will also feature special guest Alana Levandoski.  Online tickets are available at www.stevebell.com, Beulah bookstore, or by calling 1-800-854-3499.

De Camera SIngers Concert
Sunday, December 6 • 7:00 p.m. @ Holy Trinity Anglican Church
This evening performance will feature Imant Raminsh’s “Magnificat,” as well as works by Jacob Handl, Brahms and Willan.  Tickets are available through choir members, Gary & Cheryl Krueger, Eventbrite.ca, or at the door.

The King's University Choir Performance
Tuesday, December 8 • 8:00 p.m. @ Winspear Centre
The King's University Department of Music proudly presents its Fall choir concert entitled ‘God Is With Us’ at the Francis Winspear Centre for Music.  The concert features The King's Concert and Community Choirs, as well as the world premiere of "Catching Breath," a piece for organ by Canadian composer David McIntrye.  Tickets available at the King's Bookstore (until December 3) and the Winspear Box Office.


Pray for our young adults who are involved in training schools with YWAM in various parts of the world this Christmas, for joy in their ministry opportunities, for peace while being away from families, and for protection throughout their many miles of travels (including Erica John-West, Joanna Schmidt, and Leah Gurnett).
