We welcome you to join us for worship on Sunday, May 28 at 11:00 a.m.
Everyone at Calvary provides a warm welcome to you when you visit our community of faith and we hope you will feel welcome to visit us at anytime.
Seminarian Ben Fitzgerald-Fye will deliver the sermon LIA: Opposing Forces
Our readings today offer us a clear set of standards related to loving others as a Christian duty. So, what keeps us from fulfilling this duty? 1 John examines the “opposing forces” that pull us away from love and offers hope that we may yet overcome them.
The readings this week come from 1 John 3:11-24 and Matthew 25:31-46.
Musical contributions will be provided by the Music Director, Dr. Joseph Baunoch and his family.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
Please note next Sunday, June 4, the worship service will move to 10:00 a.m. for the summer months.
As we begin the summer months, focused Adult Sunday School lessons will be offered. The first in the series is entitled, A Study of the Psalms, Sunday mornings, May 28 at 9:30 a.m. and June 4, 18, 25, at 9:00 a.m. in the Dining Room.
Psalms make up some of the most beautiful literature in our religious tradition. Their words are used in multiple aspects of worship and in the prayer life of the faithful. Psalms also offer some of the most challenging and candid conversations with God. We often look at Psalms with an eye on those writings that make us comfortable. What is it about the Psalms that makes us uncomfortable? Do they have something to say to us also? The words of some Psalms may be unsettling, disruptive, and even violent; but, those same words offer us a glimpse into the depth of a soul reaching out to God even in anguish and even in anger. Together, we will look deep into the Psalms that comfort, the Psalms that uplift, and the Psalms that challenge.
