SAVE THE DATE – Calvary’s Men’s Ministry will be holding its 5th
annual men’s breakfast on Saturday, February 9. There will be good food, great fellowship, and a fine speaker, Mr. Ron Willoughby, Director of the Springfield Rescue Mission. Details will follow in the January Crier and Sunday worship bulletins.
A “WOMEN’S DAY OF REFRESHMENT” is coming January 19! Our featured speaker is Sharon Anderson, Executive Pastor of South Shore Community Church in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Please stop by the sign-up table in the Fellowship Mall for more information, including early-bird registration deals!
“HELPING HANDS” SERVICE GROUP is available to receive members’ requests for assistance. The contact person this week is Chris Ruoss.
ORNAMENTS & MORE AVAILABLE! – The Youth Group is selling ornaments, pins, pocket calendars, and Christmas cards in the Fellowship Mall to raise funds toward their Winter Retreat. Please stop by their table!
HOLIDAY JOY TREE – There’s still time to take an angel tag off the Holiday Joy Tree and bless a child in need in Enfield. Please speak with the assisting deacons stationed at the tree after the worship service, as we must keep track of the tags & gifts. Wrapped gifts are to be returned to the tree, original angel tag attached, by December 16. If you have questions, contact Deacon Jenn Clark.
THE ENFIELD SAFE HARBOR WARMING CENTER is accepting donations for an auction to benefit the center. Please join us in collecting new/gently used items for auction as well as small items that can be included in gift baskets being made up to be auctioned. The auction itself will be held from 6-7PM on December 13 at the Golden Gavel in East Windsor. Please contact Melissa Thayer for details.
PJ DAY FOR KIDS – Zach Healy is working on a school project to bring awareness for kids with blood disorders and cancer, and would like to share info with the congregation. On Dec. 14, Connecticut will hold “PJ Day for the Kids,” a state recognized holiday where people sport their favorite pjs to raise awareness for children at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center who have these conditions. They also raise money for the research fund at CCMC. Enfield’s participation is in honor of 10-year-old Donovan Abbe, who is fighting neuroblastoma.
