Labyrinth Workshop Sunday, September 29, Noon-2:00 p.m.

A labyrinth is one of the best experiential tools available to process grief. Walking one represents the journey of life – it provides a symbolic way to travel in and out of your faith journey. The act of walking can be soothing and can encourage the release of feelings that need to be experienced.  Come give it a try! You are welcome for all or just a part of this quiet time.
For further information or questions: Contact Deacon Janet 573-449-3194

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!

Donate to Tiger Pantry

Calvary is partnering with Tiger Pantry during the upcoming school year to help students, staff and faculty in Columbia who struggle with food insecurity. Rice, dry pasta, canned beans and canned tuna can be dropped into bins in the narthex. Our collection time has been extended through Sunday, September 8. Cash donations will also be accepted.
Public university student tuition, fees, room and board increased 10-fold in the last 40 years while public support for universities dropped and Missouri’s minimum increased a little more than 3-fold. Donations from Calvary will help these people – our neighbors, remain on the path to a promising future.  Click below to see video:

Calvary Youth News

No 10:30 Eucharist on Sunday, June 16

Service Schedule Change

On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, there will be a change of services and an all Parish BBQ. The 8:00 am service will meet as usual and the 9:00 am service will include a celebration for VBS which will be followed immediately by a BBQ at the church. There will not be a 10:30 am service that day so everyone can join in the celebration.  We hope that people who normally come to the 10:30 service will come to the 9:00 a.m. Rite Place service to learn what Calvary is doing to attract families with young children. It is important to Calvary’s long term health that all members of our church understand and support our outreach to households with young children!

An Earth Day Prayer

Gracious God, your amazing love extends through all time and space, to all parts of your creation, which you created and called good. You made a covenant with Noah and his family, putting a rainbow in the sky to symbolize your promise of love and blessing to every living creature, and to all successive generations. You made a covenant with Abraham and Sarah, blessing them and their descendants throughout the generations. You made a covenant with Moses and the Israelite people to all generations, giving them the 10 commandments and challenging them to choose life. In Jesus, you invite us to enter into a new covenant, in communion with all who seek to be faithful to you.
As people of faith, we are called into covenant. Your covenant of faithfulness and love extends to the whole creation. We pray for the healing of the earth, that present and future generations may enjoy the fruits of creation, and continue to glorify
and praise you.

May 19 Sundaes on Sunday!
