Special Offering – Help Puerto Rico

Sunday, June 16th

As you probably know, Calvary has made San Pedro Lutheran Church of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico a mission partner. We will have 4 different groups travel to Puerto Rico from November 2019 to June 2020 to work on needed projects.
Pastor Alicia of San Pedro has identified an immediate need for a generator (about $1,000) as they prepare for the hurricane season. San Pedro acts as a service center for the entire community during emergencies. The generator will allow them to continue this important work.
We will have a special offering on Father’s Day, June 16th to honor the important fathers and grandfathers in our life. The donations will go to pay for the generator.
Thank you in advance for your generous giving to this mission!

“Suds of Service”

Family Ministry is inviting you to help us out with “SUDS OF SERVICE.” Over the next few weeks we will be collecting quarters to share God’s love and wash away some stress of everyday life. (Laundromat expenses for people in the community.)
Look for the laundry jug in the Narthex and Sunday School Wing for quarter placement.
Sponsored by Family Ministry
