Calvary Link: While the Sun is Shining

Calvary-Link-While-the-Sun-is-ShiningI'm sure you've heard the expression "make hay while the sun shines" (an idiom for getting your work done when the times are good). Well, that is exactly what our leadership is doing right now. We revealed some of our Vision 2020 Plans this spring, and then we listened to our amazing (and very insightful) church family. Whether you gave your input online, through a survey, at a formal gathering, or in the course of an informal conversation, we listened!

Caring Continues as St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Valparaiso Initiates a Valet Parking Service for People with Special Needs

St-Andrews-Episcopal-Church-valetRecognizing both the needs of the elderly for whom a walk across the parking lot at church in itself is a daunting venture and people with recent surgeries or other physical impairments, St Andrew’s initiated a valet parking service. For people with a special need (and no, it is not simply for anyone wanting to avoid rain) all 3 services – Saturday, 5:30 PM, Sunday 8 AM and 9:30 AM will have trained volunteers to welcome you at the portico, help you out of your car and into the church then conveniently park your car. At the conclusion of the service, simply give them your car number ticket and they will also bring your car to the portico for you.

Calvary Link: Summer 2015 at Calvary

Calvary-Link-2015-SummerSummertime is in full swing! I've already been engaged in soccer camp, basketball on the driveway, throwing the football, and coaching baseball with Joel. I've ridden the Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point with Kaitlyn on a Student Ministry trip (and didn't throw up). I've played "Ultimate - Ultimate" and other crazy games with Lydia at Miracle Camp (and did throw up...thanks for the germs, kids). We've gone on bike rides, visits to the beach, and made plenty of trips to local ice cream and fro-yo establishments. This past weekend we enjoyed grilling out and watching grown men blow stuff up in the name of freedom. < Catch my breath here... > I'm taking more kids to Miracle Camp this week, getting ready for an awesome week of VBS (just a few weeks away!), and planning for more time at the beach and a trip to the Smoky Mountains before this summer is over.
