Giving Update
We are coming to the end of our Fiscal Year (6/30/20) and I’d like to thank you for your generosity to Calvary Church. I also want to invite you to prayerfully consider an above and beyond one time gift to help us finish our Fiscal Year strong. We have 7 days remaining in our Fiscal Year and are currently $102,926 below our need (see full numbers below). Our Finance Team of Elders and Deacons have been carefully evaluating our giving and expenses as we navigate these times that have called us all to trust God in greater ways. It is the grace of God that enables us to give joyfully, recognizing everything we have comes from Him. I pray our Church would “excel in the grace of giving.” (2 Corinthians 8.7)

New Small Group: Race, Class & the Kingdom of God
Do you struggle to have fruitful dialogue about racial tension? Do you feel able to have safe and authentic conversations about race with your community? ​Gaining shared knowledge, language, and best practices for community flourishing empowers you to actually do something about the racial divisions in our nation. Join us for a 6 week online course on Race, Class and the Kingdom of God. We are planning to launch the week of July 6th and are finalizing details. This course is an extension of our Be the Bridge Ministry and will be led by Lou Grieg, Julie Ware, Markel Croston and Ramin Razavi. Please reach out to Ramin if you are interested by
