This Sunday, November 14, is Consecration Sunday at Calvary, when the congregation pledges its time, talents and financial resources to the church for the coming year and shares a meal (Second Table) together. Leading up to this important day on each of three Sundays before, various folks from the congregation shared their thoughts about what Calvary Church and stewardship means to them. Although every one of the speakers did an awesome job, one of them in particular, Anna Martin, 10-year old daughter of members Sue and Tom Martin, stood out. Everyone was extremely moved by her thoughtfulness and appreciation of the people at Calvary she has come to call "family". Anna has graciously agreed to share her words with everyone who couldn't be there that day to hear her. To read Anna's wonderful speech, click HERE.
This Sunday, Kelcey Kalumbula will speak and Bekki Schmitt, Don Thomas, and Anna will give a brief summary of their talks. After they have shared their reasons for pledging, Sue Martin, this year’s chair of Stewardship, will distribute the pledge forms. The forms will ask for contact information, so we can keep that information up-to-date in the church office, ways you would like to participate in the life and ministry of our church with your time and talents, the amount of money you are pledging for 2011, and how you wish to make your contributions: weekly, monthly, quarterly, or a lump sum for the year.
Please take time in the next few days, if you have not already done so, to pray and consider a pledge. And, in the spirit of family, if you plan to attend the celebration lunch this Sunday, contact the church office and let Cindy know how many are coming and what you would like to bring to share for the lunch. Your RSVP helps us know how many tables and chairs to set up.
