125th CALVARY ANNIVERSARY: Sunday August 2nd
SEND US YOUR PHOTOS!! We would like to celebrate our history by displaying photos from our Calvary past! Please give any photos to Susan or Helen (labeled so they can be returned to you) by July 4th so we can decorate our bulletin boards.
We are also selling 125th Anniversary mugs for $13. Please see Kathy Wright if you are interested. Checks should be made out to Calvary Baptist Church and marked Anniversary Mug in the memo section. Give Kathy the check directly rather than putting it in the offering. Orders and checks are due by July 1.

A huge thank you and great job to Jane Baumer, Susan Edwards and Melissa Hillman for the fabulous Ladies Tea so many of us enjoyed on Saturday April 18. We raised $1365 (if you haven't turned in your money yet, please see Jane) Thank you too to the Hostesses, the tables looked lovely and the food was wonderful. And thank you to our gorgeous servers - Fred, Steven, Roger, Don, Drew, Bruce, and Frank - you guys were great! Click HERE to see pictures from the Tea.
Drew has CDs of the debut in October of "The First Seven Days". The CD also includes vocal solos, duets and trios, flute, piano, and organ solos. He is asking for a $5 donation to Calvary Baptist Church. If you are interested see Drew any Sunday after church in the choir room. It is truly a wonderful CD.
