ONE FAMILY IN GOD

OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY:

The Rally & March for #Black Lives Matter & #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd at the Boone County Courthouse was Saturday, June 6. Calvary represented!  See the video here.

 

THE DIOCESE OF MISSOURI:

Welcome to our new bishop: The Right Reverend Deon K. Johnson

Our new bishop is:

  • The first black bishop in the Diocese of Missouri.
  • The first openly gay bishop in the Diocese of Missouri.
  • The first immigrant to serve as bishop in the Diocese of Missouri.
  • The youngest bishop to be serving in the Episcopal Church.

…AND he’s beginning his job in the midst of a deadly pandemic and civil rights protests.

A statement from Bishop-elect Deon:

Dear sisters and brothers,

The last few weeks have been painful. We have watched in disbelief, anger, horror, sadness, shock and outrage, the public lynching of George Floyd in the street of Minneapolis, MN. Those emotions were further exacerbated by the actions of the President of the United States and the escalation of violence in cities across our nation. All the while peaceful protesters have taken to the streets to demand justice and to call our nation to live more fully into its ideals… Read the full statement here.

Calvary Connection

Calvary Connection Sign-up
Calvary Connection is a fellowship program that has been continuously running at Calvary Episcopal for many years. As with our communal worship and study, we know that fellowship fortifies our faith community. This year your feedback has inspired us to offer the Calvary Connections fellowship experience in two formats:
1.   Traditional groups of 6 to 8 members gathering together approximately 4 times over the next 8 – 9 months. The gathering locations are left to the small group’s preference.
2.   NEW: One-time group socials planned for the parish hall which will give parishioners the opportunity to get to know each other while sharing common interests. There will be 3 of these over the coming 9 months. You can participate in one or all of them.
Sign-up sheets will be available in the office and the Narthex.

Trumpet Concert Sunday, September 15

Carlot Dorve, trumpet, accompanied by Rochelle Parker, organ and piano will perform works by Torelli, Handel, and some beloved spirituals and hymns.
Time and Place: September 15 at 1:00PM, in the Calvary Episcopal Church Sanctuary
There is no admission fee, but a freewill offering will be taken to help assist Carlot in meeting his expenses as a graduate student at Mizzou.

Monday School Resumes

Monday School resumed on September 9, continuing its study of the Book of John for 8 weeks. We will gather in the Parish Hall at 6:00 pm each Monday, enjoy a light meal and each other’s company and move to the Chapel at 6:30 pm for an hour of study and discussion. You can step into this class at any time; each lesson can stand alone.

Calvary Hosts Saturday Breakfast Cafe

Despite the stormy weather, 45 guests joined us for a homemade breakfast on Saturday, August 17th. Thanks to everyone who donated items and/or helped out. If you would like to learn more about volunteering for the Café, please contact the parish office. We begin cooking at 7:00 am and serve breakfast from 8:00 am to 9:00 am. We are usually finished cleaning up by around 9:30 am. If you are not available on Saturday morning but would still like to contribute to this important ministry, you can purchase or prepare food and drop it off in the kitchen during the week. Just make sure to label items so we will know they are for the Café. You are also welcome to come and have breakfast any Saturday with our guests!
