Friday Night Fellowship Opportunity:  Gene and Brenda Avey have offered to have a fellowship time on Friday nights at their home in Dexter.  Feel free to stop by after 6:00 PM.  

Gospel For Asia Christmas Gift:  We will be collecting financial gifts toward a “Jesus Well”.  There are envelopes available on the offering box table for your donations which can be placed in the offering box.  Donations were due by this Sunday; if however we have not reached our goal of $1000, we will plan to present this gift when we do.  Thank you for your generosity!  Checks should be made out to Calvary Chapel.

Sunday Children’s Ministry:  0-3 years of age will be in the nursery, and 4-9 year olds will be dismissed for Sunday school after worship.  Ages 10 to 12 will remain in the service until Dec. 30th.  Don’t forget to sign your child(ren) in before church.  Please come to the classroom after church as children will not be released from Sunday School until signed out.   The sign-in form is located on the resource table.

Sunday School Christmas Party & Christmas Caroling:  Today!  We will be serving sandwiches, veggies, juice, cake and snacks after the morning service followed by a visit to Pleasant Meadows at 12:30 to sing Christmas carols and to pass out ornaments to the residents.

Pleasant Meadows Ministry: Join us at Pleasant Meadows at 12:30 today.


Minimizing Distractions: To the extent possible, please stay seated once the teaching begins; and please turn off or silence all communication devices.

Tithes & Offerings:  We do not pass an offering plate during our services, but encourage all who attend regularly “whose hearts are stirred and everyone whose spirit is willing” to place your offerings in the dark walnut box on the back table. (Exodus 35:21; Malachi 3:10)
