Worship Service begins at 11:00 a.m.
The Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon, Freedom: Love Casts Out Fear.
Fear is capable of absorbing us, overwhelming our hearts and minds in a vortex of apathy and inaction. It controls, paralyzes, stifles and takes away our freedom to be the people as God intended. Fear is a threat to our freedom to live, really live. So, how do we overcome fear?
The Chancel Choir will lead the music. The Choir has a longstanding tradition of fine choral music that extends back more than a century.
Calvary’s Handbell Choir also will perform.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
