2023 DISTRICT YOUTH GATHERING
We are sending some of our 8th-12th graders to the NE District Youth Gathering this Nov. 17-19. It will be a neat experience for our youth to grow together as a group, as well as to learn about and celebrate the hope that we share in Jesus with hundreds of NE, SD, and CO youth. For sign-up info and to learn more, visit this link: bit.ly/DistrictYouth
We have plans to offset the cost of this event to make it possible for our families and others to send their youth without a burden. Would you consider adding to our already budgeted amount to make this possible for a few additional families to send their youth? Reach out to Ben, Nathan, or the church office, or put "Youth Gathering" in your check memo.

THE MIGHTY MITES
During the month of October we celebrate the Lutheran Women in Mission (LWML). Year round members of LWML put change in a small mite box. These mites are collected and fund mission grants from here in Lincoln to 83 countries. During October we invite you to put your change in the large mite box located in the Gathering Place. This money will help fund the 2023 – 2025 Mission Grants. If you want your own small mite box for home so you can collect mites year round, or have questions, please talk to Kathy Comstock or Jane McGachey.
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.
