Let's connect during the week.
Christian faith formation is a lifelong journey. That's why we are doing our best to make it easy for you to connect with God and others in authentic relationships throughout the week. No one person is an island and the faith journey is not meant to be done alone, so are working together to make it easier for you to join a faith community in this COVID season and beyond.
October 25 - November 1: ABRAHAM, SARAH & ISAAC: This Sunday we learn how Abraham lived a life of faith and obedience and God blessed him to be a blessing to all people, even us today. In this unit, we will be making a birdhouse, do a crazy experiment, play a KAHOOT game, and carve a pumpkin! God told Abraham that his family would include as many people as there are stars in the sky and that he would be a blessing to all people! That was quite a surprise to Abraham! We have a surprise of our own each Sunday. Join us!
Calvary's KIDZONE is every Sunday morning from 9:15 to 9:45. Kids discover Jesus and the Bible with fun, hands-on activities, videos, and live interaction. Through live and pre-recorded stations, kids will experience cooking, science, art, drama, music, technology, and fun games as we learn about the Bible and our Savior Jesus. Come 10 minutes early just to chat!

Faith Formation of Adults
Share Your Story in Adult Forum
Come join us this Sunday in Adult Forum, at 11:15 a.m., as we begin a new three-part series as part of our Faith Journey theme of “Connecting to God and Others.”
In his book, Tablet to Table, theologian Leonard Sweet, writes:
It is important for each one of us to tell our story and hear each other’s story. Every person is a story wrapped in skin. Moreover, everyone lives multi-storied lives; as our lives intersect, so do our stories, and new stories splinter out from each encounter. As the old country song put it, “We live in a two-story house. She’s got her story and I’ve got mine.” But the ultimate story is the Jesus story of what God has done in the past, is doing in the present, and will do in the future. It’s that story that binds all our stories together.
What we need more than anything else is not more storybooks but more storypeople—people who together participate in the bigger story being told by Jesus. We need to tell a bigger story with our life than the story of ourselves. Our stories should point not just to ourselves but to Christ. If storytelling is brain-syncing, then telling God’s story is God-syncing. As we gather around the table, we learn to live well-storied lives, and to connect our story to God’s story.
In Story Matters – God’s Story, Our Story, My Story, we’ll explore the biblical narrative, our individual faith stories, and our experience of God. Participants are encouraged to bring a bible.
