Baby Shower Thank You

Baby Shower Thank You

Calvary, words are not sufficient in capturing the gratitude and deep appreciation we have for you all as you helped us celebrate the upcoming birth of our child. For the wonderful shower that allowed us to share time with so many of you and where we were able to laugh, share stories, and receive blessings we are so thankful! While we know how excited we are to be in the final month of our pregnancy and awaiting the arrive of our kiddo we were overwhelmed by the ways you shared in our excitement – not surprised by any means but certainly overwhelmed. We look forward to sharing the news of the arrival of our little one and until then we continue to be carried by your prayers for a healthy transition from pregnancy to deliver and first days as new parents.



We wanted to take just a moment to thank those who threw our shower. Thank you for your organization and all the behind the scenes work you did!

Whether you were able to join us at our shower or not, we have felt your love, prayers, and support during this journey of welcoming children into our family. Calvary we are so thankful for the ways you have held us in our sorrow of previous pregnancy losses and how you have helped us lean in to the audaciousness of hope as we have experienced this pregnancy. Thank you for continuing the journey as we pray for a healthy baby to join us in just a few weeks (or whenever our kiddo decides it’s time to come)!



With Love & Thanksgiving,

Thank You Becky Porter

We will be recognizing the ministry of Becky Porter as Calvary’s Nursery Coordinator from Sept. 2017 – Dec. 2019 on Sunday, January 19 in the 10:30 a.m. worship service. You may bring a card of appreciation and thanks for Becky that morning.

As many of you know, Becky’s husband Brad was involved in a serious accident at work in July and is still recovering from a traumatic brain injury. Becky is stepping down from the Nursery Coordinator position so that she can focus on her family and Brad’s on-going recovery. It has been a difficult six months for Becky, Brad, and Aliyah. Please continue to remember them in your prayers as they move into the next phase of this journey as Brad returns to work part-time and continues his recovery.

While our kids will miss Ms. Becky greatly, they will be in good hands. Angela Leonard’s role and hours as Children’s Ministry Coordinator will be expanded to include nursery coordination. If you have any questions about nursery or children’s ministry, you may email Angela. If you have any questions about this staff transition, you may email Staff Relations Chair Mick Davey or Pastor Anne. Read More…

David & Joyce Reed Presenting at Church School & Monday Night Pub
