Our Identity as Calvary Baptist Church:
At Calvary Baptist Church we are a community of God’s people,
United in love for God, that gathers to worship and glorify God,
In the welcoming tradition of our American Baptist faith:
Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as guided by the Holy Spirit,
Through discipleship, Christian education and community outreach.
Welcome to our newest members- Justin Proveaux, Rev. Esther Ford & Nancy Medinger
Congratulations to Justin Proveaux who was baptized on Sunday October 11!
Thank you to everyone who came out last Saturday to enjoy an evening of classical romance music - thanks to Rose Davila and AJ Muscella. And thank you for your generous donations - the concert raised $200 in donations!
ACTC THANKSGIVING BASKETS:
It's not too early to think about Thanksgiving baskets for ACTC!
Please let Alta Shuster know by Oct.29th if you wish to participate. Let's aim for 50 complete baskets from our church!! Fill the bag yourself - a list of ACTC preferred items are at the front and back door. Or you can go to one of the area stores (Mars on Ridgely has them) - and buy pre-packed bags. Thank you for your donation.
