Elder Update - 3.27.22

Greetings, the Elder Team would like to introduce what we simply call “Elders Updates”. We hope to offer these updates twice a month as a way to keep folks informed and up to date on what our team is prayerfully working through, as well as, inviting you in prayer for our church in these areas. 

Here at Calvary, after serving a number of years, pastors are allowed and encouraged to take a sabbatical leave of several months. This leave is to allow for a time of refreshment, renewal and time for re-connection with their families and to promote a rested and healthy work environment. With the approval of the elder our Youth & Worship Pastor Jarrod Norvold will be taking sabbatical leave from this coming June through September. Jarrod is working with leadership volunteers and staff to see to see that his regular responsibilities are covered.

Pastor John’s return to work has increased to approximately 30 hours a week now. We thank the Lord for this! However it is extremely important we continue to pray for John’s ongoing recovery of his strength and health.

We have met with the Church Chair, Vice Chair and the Head of the Ministry teams to works towards establishing goals for Calvary going into 2023.

We never tire of the joy of hearing personal testimonies as four more people applied for membership this past week.

We discussed the need for additional servants to volunteer for our Sunday Services as described by Pastor Mark a few weeks ago. We are looking at temporarily discontinuing some of our Children's Ministries because of a severe lack of servants volunteering. We ask that you pray with us for workers for the harvest as we have more children than ever attending and to consider how and where you might plug into this vital area.

Lastly, please pray for Calvary and its leadership. One way to do that is to join a prayer gathering at the Faith house across the street from the church at 6 pm this Sunday, March the 27th or with the option of attending virtually online with Zoom. This months prayer theme is “Call Upon Me”. A zoom link as has been in the past will be sent out prior to the event to everyone on the church email list.

Prayer: Lord thank you for what you are doing here at Calvary and the joy of being part of it. Your name be praised! Amen.
