This Week’s Calendar

WELCOME TO WORSHIP AT CALVARY CHURCH, STONINGTON.  We invite you to participate in all parts of our service, including the Holy Communion. We also invite you to explore the many ways you might become involved in the life of Calvary – we would love to have you join with us in serving God and growing in faith.

UGANDA UPDATE!  Did you know that Calvary member, Vianna McGugan, is going to Uganda in December and hopes to take 20 pairs of sneakers (new or lightly used) to poor village children to use?  Details coming soon . . .

COOGAN FARM’S GIVING GARDEN NEEDS VOLUNTEERS!  If you want to help, just stop by during farm hours.  No appointment needed.  The hours are:  Mon. – Thurs. 8 a.m. to noon, Sat. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  You will be taught everything that you need to know.  Harvesting is normally on Mondays and Thursdays.  Weeders are always welcome.  Ask for Craig, the Farm manager.  Park on the right side of the road near the garden.  All produce from the garden is donated to charities that feed the hungry in our area.  Any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail Mary Hughes at 860-535-4997 or hughesme54@gmail.com

CALVARY NURSERY SCHOOL is looking for more families and children to join us for the 2015-2016 school year.  We have space available in our 2, 3, and 5-day programs for children ages 2.9 – 5.  Please help us spread the word about our exceptional school to your friends, neighbors, and any other young families you meet.  Feel free to brag about our accreditation by NAEYC, our partnership with New England Science and Sailing, our wonderful Music Together program, and our special weekly chapel time with Father Alfred!

THE PAWCATUCK NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER’S EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY is most in need of jelly (there’s never enough!), baked beans, Spam (completely out, and it’s much requested), canned chicken, canned pears and pineapple, and bags of apples.  Many thanks for all you do.  Vicki Anderson - 860-599-3285 x14 or vicki@thepnc.org.

CLEANLINESS IN THE KITCHEN!  The Parish Hall kitchen is shared space and used by many, many persons and groups.  It is essential that we all be considerate of others and try to leave it in good shape for whomever is coming in after you.  Please make sure that before you leave, the dishes and utensils you use are washed, dried, and PUT AWAY where they belong.  The dish drainer should be empty and all of the counter tops cleared and clean.  Keeping the kitchen clean is the responsibility of all who use it.  “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” comes to mind.  Thanks, the Kitchen Czars aka The Management.

ECW is the abbreviation for Episcopal Church Women.  That means all women who attend services at Calvary are warmly invited to attend ECW meetings on the first Wed. of the month in the Parish Hall beginning on Oct. 7.  9:30-10:00 is gathering time for chatting and enjoying whatever refreshments might be set out that morning.  The meeting from 10 to 11:00 a.m. focuses on the many ways the ECW raises money and dispenses proceeds for causes both local and further afield.  Opportunities abound for participating in events like the annual Lenten Luncheons, the Yard Sale in June, and other projects that nurture participants and are just sometimes plain fun!  We hope to see you at our gatherings – volunteering is such a wonderful way to make meaningful contributions to the life and ministries of Calvary Church.  For further details, contact Carole Barnard (barnardmaine@comcast.net), Ellen McCollum (memccollum@gmail.com), or Peggy Vermilya (margaret.vermilya@gmail.com.

LARGE PRINT HYMNALS & PRAYER BOOKS AND LARGE PRINT COPIES OF THE BULLETIN are also available in the back of the church.  LARGE PRINT COPIES OF FORWARD DAY BY DAY are now available in the pamphlet rack at the back of the church.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BE PHYSICALLY PRESENT AT WORSHIP, you can now listen to our second Sunday service from a distance.  Here are directions:  Participants should dial 1-800-689-9374 (toll free).  Following the voice prompt, enter the conference pin number of 747523#.
