News for Sunday, November 27, 2022

Advent begins on Sunday, November 27. These are five weeks where we will journey to Christmas and our "Emmanuel, God with us." Every Christmas, we go back in time – about 2000 years – to that scene in a stable and a baby in a manger. We stand in awe with the shepherds met by a host of angels, we travel with the wise men following a star.  

This year, let’s look a little closer.

As God prepared to enter our world through His Son Jesus, how was Jesus’ family preparing? Together, let’s celebrate with joy as Elizabeth hears that Mary is pregnant, let’s rejoice in hope as John prepares the way for Jesus. Let’s rest in peace as Joseph’s heart is calmed, and let’s look with love at the child Mary so courageously and tenderly brings into our world. This year, let’s come together for a Family Christmas.

Joining us for the first time on Sunday?

If you are joining us for the first time on Sunday and bringing young children with you, take a moment to pre-register them for kids ministry so we can be ready to welcome them when you arrive! We offer Nursery for newborn to age 3, and classes for children in preschool to grade 5.

We host a preschool playgroup at Calvary on Tuesdays from 9:30–11 am. This is an excellent way for parents to connect while the kids play in a safe and engaging space. There's no charge, and all are welcome. Contact Sarah Bean if you have any questions.

Annual Budget Meeting

Join us for the annual Budget Meeting and Dessert Night on November 27 at 6:30 pm. This is a time to celebrate together how God has been faithful throughout the year, and look at the planned 2023 Budget. All are welcome to attend, but church members should make it a priority to attend as there will be a few voting items.

New Years Day Brunch

This is the year when both Christmas Day and New Year's Day fall on a Sunday. Plans are already in the works to make Christmas Eve and Christmas Day very special events, and we're pleased to tell you that we are again doing a New Year's Day brunch. The service will begin at 9:00 am with food and great conversation around the table, and then will flow into a time of worship and the Word. Watch for more details but in the meantime, reserve the date and plan to attend. 

Student Ministries Wednesdays at 7:00 pm

Each week our Youth Director Mike Sanders and his team put together an evening of games with a biblical teaching intended to help your kids grow in their faith and stay connected with the church. Reach out to him with any questions you have at mike@calvaryburlington.ca
