April - May 2010
The Property Committee of the Deacon Board has done an extensive analysis of our buildings. Several maintenance needs must be addressed in the near future, and other needs can be delayed.
Session has agreed with the recommendation that we raise $$$ over the next five years for property improvements and has charged the Finance Committee with recommending a plan to raise this money.
We ask you to pray and wait for the Session to give further information on this extensive improvement program.
The Session of Calvary is prayerfully considering our future ministry with the departure of the MacDougalls this summer. Session has decided to move ahead with hiring an Assistant Pastor.
This man must be a spirit-filled man who desires to joyfully communicate the Gospel of Jesus in word and deed. The job would be part time, twenty hours per week.
His duties would include ministry to young families, evangelism, teaching, occasional preaching and worship leadership.
And speaking of the MacDougalls' departure, we ask you all to mark your calendars for a farewell party to be held at Calvary on Friday, June 11, at 7:00 p.m..
We give you this news now in order that you make this event an important part of your summer plans.
And finally, on Sunday, May 16, at 5:00 p.m., we will have a fellowship meal and time of worship with the members of Grace Point Presbyterian Church.
Their pastor, Robert Kim, has an office at Calvary. Grace Point and Pastor Kim are the newest members of the Eastern Pennsylvania Presbytery. Please take part in giving them a warm welcome.
