Calvin Coffee House

THE CALVIN COFFEE HOUSE will be starting up again this month with this season’s first monthly concert on Friday, September 14th. The concerts take place in the Gathering Space with doors opening at 7:00 pm. Each Coffee House evening begins with an open mic from 7:30 to 8:15 pm and a featured musical guest at 8:30 pm. This month’s featured guest is local classic rock/blues cover band Don’t Call Me Jimmy. Admission is free, concession items are $2, and all donations collected go directly to our guest musicians. Come out for some great music and a chance to support our local musicians!

Men’s Fellowship Breakfast

Please note that there will NOT be a meeting in September in order to permit everyone to attend the Pancake Breakfast at Calvin on Saturday, September 8th.
Our next meeting will be on October 13th (the 2nd Saturday of the month), in order to avoid conflict with the Thanksgiving Day weekend.

LIBRARY

As we are attempting to get the church library back to working order, and there are many books missing, could you please check at home for borrowed books that may have inadvertently been shelved with your own books? This could even have been some time ago!
Please put any returned books into the blue bin in the Library. Thank you. Colleen

 

Christmas in July

 

CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES FOR SAMARITAN’S PURSE
Although it may seem early to think of Christmas Shoeboxes, this is the time of year to buy some items that fit the shoeboxes. Many of the boxes go to warm climates, and we can buy some items best in the summer. Particularly, these include flip-flops, sun hats, and bandanas. The dollar stores have these. Please purchase to fit children’s sizes for ages 5 to teens. If you want to purchase any quantity of these, you can give them to me to use in the boxes that I fill in the fall using donated funds. Thank you from Colleen.
