THE WALK MAY MEETING
The Walk is a Christ-centered journey, purposefully undertaken to develop boys into the next generation of men and equip them to overcome whatever challenges they may face throughout their lives. This is a new ministry starting up at Calvary aimed at boys in the age group of third-eight grades and their fathers or male mentors. Come join us for our next meeting, May 28th from 10:00-11:30. We plan to start our meeting in the Gathering Place. We plan to have a fun activity to start off this ministry together! Feel free to reach out to Pastor Ben, Ryan Wittmann (402.202.7533), or Matt Schiefelbein (402.318.2138) with more questions!
FUEL FOR LEVI’S FAMILY
Gas is expensive these days, crazy expensive. As we care for Levi and the Akridge family, what if we gathered up gas cards to help with all the traveling they have to do? If you want to join in, drop off or mail in gas cards to the church office (any gas station) or write a check with the memo "gas cards for Levi." Sometimes it's the little things that communicate the greatest love.
GARSKE FAMILY ADOPTION
Andrew and Olivia Garske are in the midst of the adoption process. They will be hosting a garage sale at their home in Seward from May 27th - May 30th to raise funds. We want to help donate items for their sale as well as to come out and partake. Items can be put in the "cut out" spots next to the stairs in the Gathering Place. Cash/Check donations are also welcome - Made out to Calvary with “Adoption Fund” in the memo.
Please see the following list for items of need in Calvary’s food pantry: Hearty Soups, Canned Chicken, Cereal & Ramen Noodles
AN EASY WAY TO HELP WITH MEALS FOR THE AKRIDGE FAMILY
As the Lions of Judah, let us roar and show this family we are with them during this time by providing some meals. Out in the Gathering Place there is a Lion, and on the mane of this lion are sacks. On the sacks are ingredients needed for a meal. Please grab a sack, then place the groceries back by the lion along with the sack that you grabbed. If you have any questions at all, please call Adell Stiles (402-525-7176) or Judy Rosecrans (402-570-4372).
HEARING LOOP AVAILABLE
Calvary now has a hearing loop. If you have a telecoil setting on your hearing aids/cochlear implants, simply turn it on. The t-coil program may initially need to be activated by your audiologist. If you need a portable loop receiver, an usher can provide one. If you would like to contribute toward the cost of the hearing loop, please speak with Chris Myers or call the church office for more information.
