            Final days for our Nursery Baby Shower…  Our new nursery is in need of some new things.  If you would like to participate and purchase some nursery items, please visit a Target store or or  We are registered under ‘Calvin Church’.  Thank you for your generosity!

            Nursery/Restroom Renovation - While the nursery is in its temporary space we ask that parents still sign in on the table located just outside the doors, then lift children over the gate into the fireside room nursery.   Also, for any meetings that would normally meet in the Fireside Room, there is space available downstairs (GEMS/Cadet rooms, etc).   Please note since the restrooms are under construction restrooms are available in the Family Life Center and in the Basement.  Thank you for your patience during this time. 

            It’s so exciting to see all the improvements and updates being made around church!   Not only are the nursery and bathrooms being updated on the main level, but we have updated carpet, furniture and paint downstairs.  We would like to ask all parents if they would please have a conversation with their children to let them know that food and drinks should be kept in the Family Life Center.  Kids are still welcome and encouraged to play in the game room, fellowship hall and gym.  We are just asking to keep food and drinks in the Family Life Center.  Thank you for your help in communicating this to all our Calvin Kids.  

           We could use your help!  Please plan to join us on Thursday, May 30th at 6pm.  We need all hands on deck to get the church cleaned up and put back together after construction.  We’ll be cleaning, organizing and moving furniture!  Also, pizza will be provided for our cleaning bees!

          Activity Tote Bags are available for kids during the worship service and are located in the narthex.  Feel free to grab one as you head into worship.  Please return the totes after the service.

          Children’s Messages will run throughout the summer during our morning worship.  Our little ones enjoy this special time during the service just for them.  If you are willing to share a story with our children, please see the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by the drinking fountain. 

           FAMILY PROMISE families will be hosted here at Calvin Church June 2-9. At this time we have many volunteers signed up to help and only need the following:

The families will arrive in the late afternoon on June 2, and will depart Sunday morning June 9.   If you are crafty, the children would enjoy doing a simple craft with you in the evening. Additional help with set up and clean up would be much appreciated.  Sign up in the narthex today.  

            Looking for early morning coffee servers for June, July, August (serve a month at a time).  If you are interested, please see Vern Borgman or Vickie in the office. 

            If you are a first time visitor we would like you to stop by the Welcome Center on your way out.  We have a gift for you.  

             Please check the Lost & Found tub at the Information Desk in the narthex this week if you lost something and you feel it may have been lost in the church.  We will be sending the unclaimed articles to Hope’s Outlet this Wednesday, May 29th.
