The Ashmont Farmers Market

This community event will be held every Friday afternoon (through October 28th) from 3 to 7 PM on Droser Plaza at Ashmont Station. In 2021, over 250 people interacted with the market vendors each week with many more passers-by, and they are expecting even greater things in 2022. The AFM holds a special place in the heart of our neighborhood by providing families access to fresh food from local vendors. This year they will return to a standard market format. They ask customers to continue to maintain distance and to wear a mask if you’re not vaccinated. This model allows the market to prioritize safety for the community while continuing to be an access point for local, affordable, and nutritious food. All entertainers, placemaking, food demos, community and wellness activities are expected to return later in the season.

 

Business Meeting Update

On Tuesday, July 19th, Calvary Community Church met to vote on matters directly related to the future of ministry at 286 Ashmont Street.  At that meeting, a majority of the members agreed to a plan of action that ensured the furthering of the gospel into the next generation and beyond.  We voted to respect and reflect our origins as a church, and we committed to continuing as a place of worship for the ‘alien and sojourner’ in our community.  We are grateful for the prayers and participation of so many in the conversation and we look forward to where God is guiding us as His people.

 

Monthly Prayer Walk

Although this program is typically on the 1st Monday of the month, due to the Pastor's vacation (concluding August 1st) and Labor Day (observed on September 5th), we will be conducting our next monthly prayer walk on Monday, August 15th, at 10 AM (weather permitting). If you are able, come and walk with us around the neighborhood of the church, praying for the residents, businesses, and services that we pass by. It is an excellent opportunity to exercise both the spirit and the body.

 

Coming 2 Gather Sunday

We hope that you can join us on Sunday, August 14th, as we extend our service of worship with a time of fellowship. All are invited to interact with the church family for ‘lunch on the lawn’. This summer, we are doing a little more than offering coffee and cookies; we are serving sandwiches and salad. We look forward to this opportunity to informally interact with one another and hope that your plans will include your participation.

 

Sunday School

We hope that everyone will be a part of our current Sunday School program. During the summer, we will all meet in Axberg Hall every Sunday from 9:30 -10:30 AM for one big Bible class, which will hold a discussion of the Apostle’s Creed. The Apostles’ Creed is one of the oldest and most widely acknowledged creeds. This study aims to fill out the content of the short statements of this Creed, packed with so much momentous truth and understanding.

·         August 7 – THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST: “I believe in Jesus Christ … who … suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the dead” (Matthew 27:11-54)

·         August 14 – THE REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST: “On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead” (1 Corinthians 15:1-34

·         August 21 – THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT: “I believe in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 8:1-17)

·         August 28 – THE COMMUNITY OF THE SPIRIT: “I believe in … the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints” (Ephesians 1-4)

 

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 at 7PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors. After this time of intercession, we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives. Those who would prefer to pray from home can contact the church office and ask to be included in the weekly prayer e-mail (which is sent out on Wednesday afternoons). 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 – we are here to help.

 

Mark Your Calendars

On Sunday, September 11th, we will be celebrating, as a church family, Pastor Mike’s 25 years as our pastor. Join us as we worship the Lord and then share together in a luncheon in honor of the special occasion.
