Weekly Highlights

Call Committee Update
The Call Committee has been working diligently in securing an additional Associate Pastor for Calvary. They have narrowed the list and will conduct interviews in early March. Please pray for each candidate during the interview process and continue to pray that the Holy Spirit gives wisdom and guidance, as the committee deliberates and reflects on the individual candidates.

Portals of Prayer
Order your personal copy of the Portals of Prayer devotional by Sun., Mar 24. Order forms available in the narthex.

Love Meals
Do you love to cook? Are you looking for a way to serve at Calvary using your culinary skills? An extension of the Compassion Ministry is the Love Meals Team. We reach out to members in a time of need (following hospitalization/surgery, a new baby, cancer treatments, etc.) and provide meals delivered to their home. If you'd like more info or to have your name added to the Love Meals Team, contact Pattie Bardonner. Join us as we bless others through these meals.

Extravagant Sharing
During the month of March, fill the shelves with hygiene products—toothpaste and brushes, soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc. Breakfast cereal is always needed and appreciated! Please continue to share your love of Jesus through your gifts of food to those who are in need.

Lenten Midweeks “Let My People Go! (Exodus)”
Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. (Feb 21 through Mar 20)
The Exodus is the “gospel” of the Old Testament. Throughout the book of Exodus God reveals who he is through his absence and his presence, through his silence and his speech, through his wrath and his mercy, and through his judgment and his amazing grace. In doing so, the book paints a beautiful portrait of Jesus. Join us this week:
Mar 6 - “Strike the Rock!” (Ex 17:1–7)
Mar 13 - “Mine!” (Ex 20:1–17)
Mar 20 - “Digging Ourselves into a Hole” (Ex 32:1–14)
