Transition Team Update (C.A.T.) 3/20/19

Transition Team Announcement - 3/20/19
(Note: this announcement was distributed in Sunday School folders on 3/24/19)

The Congregational Assessment Tool - The CAT

What is it?
The Congregational Assessment Tool is an online survey used to anonymously collect information from a congregation. The CAT has been used in over 3,000 churches and will provide key indicators of our congregational health along with areas of challenge and potential growth.  It will allow us to collect and understand the range of views that exist at Calvary Baptist Church and the possibilities, willingness, capacity, and energy for moving our ministry into the future.

Why is Calvary doing the CAT?
The information gathered will provide a clear picture of who we are as a church and what directions are most important for our future. It provides a way for the Transition Team and the Pulpit Committee to receive information directly and efficiently from the Calvary congregation. This honest assessment of Calvary will be vitally important in the selection of our next Senior Pastor. 

Who is involved?
All Calvary members and attendees who are able to take the CAT in a single 30-minute sitting at a computer.

When is it happening?
The CAT assessment window will open beginning April 1, 2019 and will remain open until April 30, 2019.

How do we participate?
If your email address is on file with Calvary and your receive Calvary Connections, you are all set. If not, provide an email address to us by sending an email to: miller.rebecca613@gmail.com.  Paper copies will be available to those who do not have email access, just call the Church office. If needed, a computer station will be made available to those members who want to come to the church to fill out their CAT survey. Hours and Room will be announced later.

National Day of Prayer at Calvary 5/1/19

At Calvary Baptist Church we are planning an intergenerational prayer program on Wednesday, May 1st at 6:30pm in Fellowship Hall for the National Day of Prayer. We have scheduled our Day of Prayer a day in advance of the National Day of Prayer (on Thursday, May 2nd), so that more of our church family may participate in this event.


Our theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019 is Love One Another. The theme comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.”

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.

Our hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. We can come together in clear agreement that this is our greatest need. We can become a visible union, standing together in prayer. We can pray more than ever before, and practice extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God in America that will catapult the message of the gospel nationally and internationally.

"There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God's people." Dr. Ronnie Floyd

Pickleball For All 3/25/19

Want to give pickleball a try? On Mondays (starting March 25th) we’re taking over the gym from 6:30--8:00pm for church-wide pickleball.  Rookies and veterans of all ages are welcome. Bring a friend! Contact Brian Varble via email or at (859) 232-8955 if you have questions or need more info.

What is pickleball The fast growing sport of pickleball combines tennis, table tennis and badminton and is played on a smaller version of a tennis court.  The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.   --lexingtonky.gov

Hymns for the Journey--Lenten Devotions Blog 3/13/19

Click here to read this week’s devotion: “Holy, Holy, Holy” by Hank Ellington

Click here to visit the blog page where future devotions will be posted. The blog can be accessed on the home page by clicking on “News and Events.”

HYMNS FOR THE JOURNEY
AN INVITATION
 : Like a journey, the season of Lent begins and ends in vastly different places. From Ash Wednesday to Easter’s doorstep, it tracks along the rugged and narrow path of discipleship through the garden of abandonment to what would seem to be the dead end of the tomb were it not for God’s knack for surprise endings. And we are called to follow.

Pack lightly. Your possessions will only burden you and your every need will be provided. You already possess your most precious resources: Faith, Trust, God’s Word, and the Hymns You Know By Heart. This blog features a few of those hymns. Stories of meaning and reflection written by you and for you. 

Each week, we will bring you a new hymn to discover again in a unique way as it relates to a fellow pilgrim. What hymns speak to you?

Ash Wednesday Evening 3/6/19

Calvary will begin the Lenten journey Wednesday evening with the observance of Ash Wednesday. The Campbell University Choir from Buies Creek, NC will perform during Fellowship Dinner and then lead us in worship at the 6:30pm Ash Wednesday Service in the Sanctuary.

4:00pm--Youth Homework Huddle
5:00pm--Fellowship Dinner
