Upcoming Events at Calvary
Join us for VBS June 12 to 16, 6 to 8 p.m.
Over the years, Calvary’s Holy Land Adventures have taken us to exotic locales like Ancient Rome and the Sinai Wilderness. Join us this summer as we travel back in time to Jerusalem, “Where Jesus Walked to the Cross!” Smell fresh, warm bread; weave a basket; make a clay lamp; spin a dreidel; hear the music echoing through the Marketplace! Engage all senses as you are transported to a different time and a fresh experience
We will walk with Jesus through the days we now know as Holy Week and Easter, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Join the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Share in Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples. Stay awake with Jesus as he prays in the Garden. Journey to Golgotha where Jesus is crucified. Celebrate God’s victory through Christ’s Resurrection at the Empty Tomb.
Along the way, we’ll be learning about Jewish practices and customs. We’ll learn about the Twelve Tribes of Israel, write some of the letters in the Hebrew alphabet, recite the Shema from Deuteronomy 6:4-5, and pray traditional prayers.
This Marketplace experience is designed for children age 3 to 12. Teens and adults are welcome to help in a variety of ways! For more information or to register, contact the church office or visit tinyurl.com/calvaryvbs2022
HYMNODY! For most Sundays, hymns are carefully chosen to correspond with the scripture readings, sermon, or seasonal emphasis. This summer, hymns will be chosen differently—songs for each Sunday will be themed in Jeopardy-style categories. We’ll also learn a little about each song as we sing a wide variety of spirituals, songs, and standard hymns. Categories include:
June 19 This Far By Faith African American Anthems
June 26 Borning Cry Hymns of John Ylvisaker
July 3 National Anthems Patriotic and National Songs
July 10 Hymns by Her Hymns by Women Composers
July 17 Haugen Hits Hymns by Marty Haugen
July 24 Cranberry Jam Hymns Introduced in ELW
July 31 British Invasion Hymns from Great Britain
