Dear Calvary Family, 

Thank  you for all of the cards and notes for our 70th wedding anniversary and Jim’s 90th birthday. It is so good to hear from you! We miss you all so very much. We are doing OK for two ‘old folks’. God bless you all! 

Jim and Joan May



Dear Calvary Family,


Your loving support continues to bless me and give me strength. All your kindness and help over Stan’s years of illness will not be forgotten. Stan’s last days were eased by the tender care of Pastor Janet and Kay Northrup, they will stay in my heart forever. The joy of singing and hugs at the memorial service will warm my heart forever. Diane Diekroger continues to encourage me and Julie to keep getting out to walk, helping us to look forward, and often to laugh. And Janis Lane is helping me get back to organizing Calvary archives. Blessings abound! My heart thanks you all. And thank you to those who have given a memorial gift to Calvary in Stan’s name. This fund will be used to create a permanent home for the church archives; history being his favorite subject.


‘The Religious Tolerance Collection’ at OU-C Quinn Library continues to accept memorial gifts in Stan’s name. This was a subject close to his heart and is certainly a concern in our world today. A panel discussion is being planned for this spring. Contributions can be made to OU-C Chillicothe Foundation, OU-C Office of Resource Development, Attn. Joyce Atwood, 101 University Drive, Chillicothe, Ohio 45601.

To Calvary Lutheran Church,

A big thank you to everyone at Calvary Lutheran Church for the love, support, cards, food, and especially the prayers you have sent my way during this difficult year. They always showed up when I needed it the most. My wrist is healing and the cast is off. I am working on getting the motion back in my wrist and thumb.
I feel so blessed to be a part of our Church family.

  • Thank you to everyone who contributed to the great success of the Souper Bowl. Money was raised for both our church and Good Samaritan Food Bank who also benefited from the many wonderful soup donations contributed by all of you! Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of those in need right here in our community!


  • Thank you to our Fellowship Team for all of their hard work organizing our great events here at Calvary. Shrove Tuesday and other events provide us with a chance to gather, share great food and fellowship, and feel comfort in the love and presence of Jesus as we celebrate together. Thank you to all our teams, volunteers, cooks, and attendees!
