Annual General Meeting Coming Soon!
Sunday, March 13 • 7:00 p.m. @ Calvary
Our Leadership Team is extending an invitation to all Calvary members, as well as adherents, to attend our upcoming A.G.M.

Next Teaching Topic at Calvary
Sunday, March 6 • 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. @ Calvary
Our teaching topic for this Sunday is “Jesus Our Forgiver!”  We have begun a new teaching series over the 6 weeks of Lent called "Who Do You Say That I Am?”  We’ll be looking at the early ministry of Jesus, particularly as Jesus enters into the world of various people who encountered Him in ways they didn’t expect.  In many respects, as He did this,  He turned people’s ideas of God upside down.  Who is Jesus, and how does His entry into our world disrupt and change our view of God, and ourselves, and what we are doing with our lives?  And what is, ultimately, our response to His question, “Who do you say that I am?”

Oskar's Wish Fundraiser
Saturday, March 19 • 6:00 p.m. @ Calvary
Rachael John-West invites everyone to come for a semi-formal fundraising event to raise money for the post-secondary education of Oskar and Ange, a Rwandan refugee brother and sister that she came to know while living in South Africa.

“We are excited to get Ange through Nursing school and for Oskar to accomplish his dream of someday completing a degree in Commerce or Journalism.  Hope you can be a part of the success!  Join us for a silent auction, delicious African food, performances by local musicians (some from our Calvary family), and stories from young people who have experienced first-hand the life of a refugee in South Africa.  Reception by Rwanda's very own DJ Thunderstorm.  It will be awesome!!”

Tickets are available at the door or by texting Rachael (587-599-0965); $20 per adult, $15 for students and only $5 for children under 12.  Everyone is welcome!
