Offering Hope

We are grateful to God and to you in making our Women’s Hope Kits project a success on so many levels. Because of you, we have provided essential hygiene items and more to women in the US affected by poverty, abuse, homelessness, or disaster.   Thanks to all who contributed to this project and all who attended the assembly event on November 17th.   We appreciate every gift!

 

Hanging of the Greens

We will be decorating the church for Christmas on Friday, December 7th, at 10am.  Join us in the sanctuary at that time if you’d like to help us beautify the sanctuary and prepare our worship space for the celebration of Christ’s birth.

 

Kids’ Christmas Party

We will be having a Christmas Party on Friday, December 14th, at 7pm for children 3-12, complete with karaoke caroling, crafts, games and delicious snacks.  We hope and pray that the children of the church will join us as we celebrate "the reason for the season" - the birthday of Jesus!

 

Caroling at the T

Join us on Wednesday, December 19th, at 5pm, as we share some Christmas cheer with commuters rushing home.  A light supper, at the church, will follow.

 

Christmas Eve Service

Everyone in the church family is invited to share in a service of Candles and Carols on Monday, December 24th at 4:00 PM.  This special time of familiar songs and soft light will help to usher in the birth of Jesus.  We encourage the entire community to make this a part of their Christmas tradition.

 

Give Joy to a Child This Christmas

Through Angel Tree©, 10 children of incarcerated parents will receive an age-appropriate gift through the generosity of the Calvary community.   Volunteer to buy and wrap a gift, deliver these gifts to children or share the gospel with them.  Find a name on the display in the foyer and return a gift before Sunday, December 16th.  “It starts with a gift and leads to restored lives.”

 

Area Prayer Walk

Join us on Monday, December 3rd, at 10AM for our area prayer walk (weather permitting: we will walk as long as there is an absence of precipitation).  We would be blessed by your accompanying us throughout the neighborhood, praying for the streets, people and businesses we come across.  It is also an excellent opportunity to exercise your body and your spirit.

 

Gathering for Prayer and Bible Study

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Eph. 6:18).”  Join Pastor Mike and others in the church family every Wednesday night from 7 to 7:45PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors and from 7:45 to 8:30PM as we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives.  If you have a need you would like lifted by God’s people, fill out a prayer card and place it in the box in the church foyer any Sunday morning, call the church offices at (617) 825-7832 or e-mail the pastor at calbapt@msn.com.

 

Monthly Coffee Hour

Please plan on remaining after the worship service on Sunday, December 9th, to share in this month’s coffee hour.  We would be blessed to share with you a bit of pleasant conversation and some light refreshments.

 

Grow Through Christian Education

Everyone is encouraged to be at church on Sunday at 9:30AM, for our Christian Education program.  This year's theme -- BOOT CAMP -- will remind us of the 'armor of God'.  All are welcome to our weekly age-specific classes:

Children: Heart-Shaper classes meets in the "Red Carpet Room" on the church's lower level.

Teens:   Bible-in-Life lessons meet in the Conference Room.

Adults:  The Gospel Project for Adults meets in the Parlor.

 

Men’s Discipling Group

Disciple's Path: The Journey provides an intentional two-year mission toward maturity in Christ.  It's a purposeful process covering four volumes, 13 sessions each.  The Journey was created to nurture believers into disciples who make disciples.  All the men of the church are invited to be part of this study every other Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30 PM.  This month we will meet on December 4th and 18th.

 

Consider Joining the Church

All those who have submitted their lives to Christ are encouraged to be baptized and become a member of the church.  If you are interested in pursuing either of these options, please speak to Pastor Mike about making the next commitment.
