OUR MOST RECENT NEWSLETTER:

A WORD (OR TWO) FROM PASTOR STEVE
When I came to Calvary in 1999, I told the congregation that someday we would stop using paper for newsletters and deliver it by email and by posting it on our website. This is finally going to happen – now. If you don’t have email, we will send it in the mail, or if email doesn’t work for you, let us know, and we will mail it to you by snail mail. It is my hope that this accomplish a number of things:
1 – Save us money and the hassle of dealing with postal problems.
2 – Allow us to get the news to you faster and more often.
3 – Save some trees and help the environment.
Let us know what you think – we want you to be informed so that you can be more active in the life of the church. I look forward to your comments.

 

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT NOW

For those who are unable to worship on Sunday, there is a Bible Study on the first Tuesday at B2 Bistro in West Reading – 6:00pm for those who want to eat, 7:00pm for our interactive Bible Study.
