He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Luke 24:6-7
This Easter Sunday at 10:30am, celebrate the reaSON for the HOPE we have - Christ's resurrection from the dead and his triumph over our curse!
Come early, at 9:00am and enjoy a delicious, fellowship Easter breakfast in the upper auditorium.
If you are a Member, please set this date aside as we will be holding our Annual General Meeting after the service in the upper auditorium. Not only will we review the amazing things God did through Calvary last year, introducing the new ministry member for nomination, but we are setting course for 2018!
We don't go too long, but a bagged lunch would go nicely with your fellowship coffee after the service :)

Join the worldwide church as we gather together to pray for justice in Suriname & a renewed practice of stewardship of the environment.
Service Theme: "All God's Creation is Very Good!"
"The theme for the Suriname worship service urges us to evaluate how our actions affect our planet - one of our Lord's greatest creations.
The environmental crisis is also a crisis of global justice. God’s justice always meant loving and sacrificial self-giving. We, as Christians cannot be silent. We live with the hope and belief that people have the means, and increasingly, the will to focus on justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.
To recycle is to give a new use to objects, thus reducing the consumption of resources that may degrade the planet. We may use the way we do WDP activities to educate and campaign for climate justice.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE"
Join us for our First Sunday in Lent! Author & grassroots-country-folk recording artist Doug Rawling and his band will be leading us in worship this morning. Lent is a time for honest reflection. It's an opportunity to get real with ourselves and ask "is my heart's desire for God above all else?" Join Calvary on this pilgrim's journey of sobering and rejoicing in the crucified and risen Savior.
*Please consider a special love-offering this morning for Doug's ministry in music.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers & sisters of mine, you did for me”.—Jesus (Matt 25:40)
This Christmas what if, instead of more, routine presents under the tree, families in first-world countries were to focus on gifts for those in dire need of essentials? What an example we would set for our children to teach them how a $20 toy in Canada could, instead, be therapeutic food for 10 children suffering from malnutrition in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. How a simple Hygiene Kit means the world to refugees and internally displaced people without basic toiletries and bandages. How $50 worth of seeds can help grow an entire garden so a family can support themselves & learn the essentials of crop rotation and soil conservation!
The Canadian Lutheran World Relief’s Gifts from the Heart catalog provides meaningful and tangible gifts that will share God’s love with the world. No matter which gift you choose, the gifts you give will save & change lives. Fund a project today!
