Pastoral Letter From Pastor Anne:

Happy Fall Y’all!

(Yes, I’m still a Texas girl at heart even though I’ve lived in Colorado for 13 years now!)

For our fall stewardship theme, Table of Abundance, we are using a cornucopia as a visual representation of the abundance of God’s provision for us at Calvary and beyond. Each week, a member of the stewardship committee is sharing about an aspect of Calvary’s ministry and adding an item to our collective cornucopia on the Communion Table, which is the place where we remember and celebrate Christ’s abundant love and grace. These items include: Read More…

Pastoral Letter From Pastor Morgan: May You Be Well

Greetings, Calvary!
It has been back from parental leave for a month and a half and it has been a joy to be with you all again. The "again", for me, isn't only from parental leave but also from the Tuesday before Julian was born back in February 2020. I missed the closing of the church building due to being on parental leave with Julian and I missed the re-opening of the church building due to being on parental leave with Mavis. In the month and a half of being back at work, I have been learning how to work onsite as a mom, how to lead in hybrid capacities, and how to balance working from home and working at church.

A Letter from Pastor Morgan - Home for the Holidays

Dear Calvary,
It is very hard for me to realize we are a week away from Christmas! It is even more baffling to me that we have been living with Covid-19 safety measures for just shy of 10 months! This year has been a tortious and hare situation, meaning it feels like this year will never end and yet at the same time feels like this year has flown by. And while this is not a new feeling towards a year as it comes to a close it is heightened for me this year. For example, back in September when the idea for Calvary Home for the Holidays came to be it felt like it would take so long for it to be experienced and now that we are coming to its end, I can’t believe we are less than a week away from the final pieces of it taking place. ...

A Letter from Pastor Anne- The Waiting Place

Dear Calvary,
Damon and I are so grateful for your outpouring of love and concern over the past few weeks. It is one thing to read about COVID-19 and see all the statistics on the news; it is another thing to have a loved one in your home ill with the coronavirus. It is a reality some of you know very well. We continue to pray for those of you with loved ones ill with COVID-19 and those of you who are grieving the loss of loved ones due to this virus. We feel very fortunate that Damon’s case was mild to moderate in symptoms. Damon was cleared by his doctor to leave quarantine yesterday (Dec. 3), and I will be clear to leave quarantine on Monday (Dec. 7). Read More…

Pastor Anne's World Mission Offering Letter

Dear Calvary family and friends,
Throughout the month of October, we are receiving the American Baptist International Ministries’ World Mission Offering (WMO). Through the WMO, we join with other congregations to come together for a time of awareness, advocacy, and action for global mission as we celebrate and support the ministries that God is using to transform the world. For the 2020 World Mission Offering, International Ministries (IM) is highlighting the Ministry Priorities of Discipleship, Theological Education, Peace and Justice, Education, Health and Wellness, and Economic Development. While these represent only a fraction of IM’s ministries, they provide a window into what God is doing worldwide through our 125 global servants, 900+ volunteers, home staff, and 250+ international partners. ...

Pastoral Letter: Faith Formation Opportunities

Greetings, Calvary,
It has been 25 Sundays of digital worship, 26 Sundays since worship was open to folks in the Sanctuary, and 28 Sundays since I was in worship with you before going on parental leave. That is exactly half the Sundays in a year that we have not been together - while I know we have lived it, it is still hard to believe. Read More…

A Letter From Pastor Morgan

Hello Calvary!

I write to you as Julian is napping and Ian is working in the office. This has become the norm for me - doing focused sprints of work while my little one naps or Ian is with him. We refer to it as the pandemic parenting shuffle. Working fulltime and taking care of Julian fulltime has been a nonstop source of learning how to work as efficiently as possible, prioritizing tasks by what can be interrupted and what cannot so I can stack the non-interruptible tasks on Tuesdays or Thursday afternoons when Ian is point parent with Julian or after Julian goes down for the night.
