THEME: Faith Forward - Growing Faith


In today's Gospel, Jesus builds up the faith of his disciples by visiting with them and showing them that he is not a ghost. He also points them to God's promises and how he and they are part of those promises. How is our community of faith showing people Jesus so that their faith grows? How are we helping others to remember God's promises for us and through us?

CALVARY'S GARDEN MINISTRY

With the weather turning nice the Garden Gnomes are getting ready for a huge year of produce for the Cooperative Christian Ministry (CCM).

This year we are once again asking for coffee grounds and egg shells to enrich our soil.  We have put 5 gallon buckets outside the kitchen door for the congregation to put their waste in the designated container.

We collected 1,500 pounds of fruits and vegetables last year and are shooting for 2,000 pounds for this season.

Thank you for your support of this ministry project.
