TRUNK OR TREAT! Sunday, October 29, 5:30-7:30pm at the Student Center. We are so excited about this year's church-wide Trunk or Treat! It's our goal to make this a HUGE outreach to our community, so start inviting people NOW - we'll have invite cards available soon to make it super-easy! We're asking each and every one of our community groups to help us out by bringing at least one car along with candy to hand out. Prizes will be awarded for the best trunks, and also for best costumes (2 divisions: Children and Youth-Adult) so get creative! Last year's event was amazing, and this year will be even better! Please start getting the word out to our families and our community, and plan to be there to help!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD: Good News – Great Joy! Operation Christmas Child, a yearly ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through simple, gift-filled shoe boxes and evangelistic materials that tell the Good News of God’s greatest Gift. Samaritan’s Purse provides the Gospel in the appropriate language – we provide the shoeboxes! Pack your own adult size boxes or like-sized plastic containers or use the free boxes provided by the church. Boxes and information brochures will be available in the church foyer starting October 22. Filled boxes should be returned to the church by Sunday morning, November 19. Last year over 500 boxes were collected at Calvary. Let’s top that this year! (Note: A big “THANK YOU” to all who donated empty shoeboxes for OCC during this year and, especially, to Coffin Shoe Company for donating most of our boxes.)
GUATEMALA 2018! March 10-17, 2018 - Medical, Children’s, Sports and a variety of community ministries - there will be something for everyone to do!! Cost is $1000, which includes transportation to and from Atlanta, airfare to and from Guatemala, plus meals, transportation, and lodging while in Guatemala. (These figures are tentative based on Faith Promise supplemental projections, and our Guatemalan missionaries’ estimated costs.) A $100 deposit must be turned in to the church office to hold your spot - SPACE IS LIMITED! Your name as it appears on your passport, your date of birth, and your final payment must be turned in by Sunday, January 28.
