Barnabas Project – The Barnabas Project is in need of monetary donations and beds and clean mattresses.  See Beth Reed.  PLEASE NOTE:  We are only collecting beds and mattresses as furniture has become a challenge for our people.

Pastor Dorow will be out of the office for a few days. However, Confirmation will still take place Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m.

 Printer Cartridges and Cell Phones – We are collecting printer cartridges and may be left either in the box on the heater in the narthex or on the secretary’s desk. 

 Does the church office have your email address or cell phone number? Remember March 15th when everything was shut down due to the coronavirus?  How could we get in touch with you?  We had people call everyone!!  If we had your email or cell phone number we could have sent an email or text message to keep you informed.  Your information will only be used for emergencies.  Please either email the info to Nancy at contact@calvarylutheranwaterloo.com or leave it on her desk in the office.  Your info will not be distributed outside the office.

 LARGE PRINT BULLETINS are available from the ushers.

 To keep handling of paperwork to a minimum, we ask that your offering be placed in the offering plates at the bottom of the stairs.  Also, if you are not taking your bulletin home with you, please place in the box on the table at the bottom of the stairs.

 Message Box Added – As you may have noticed on your way in this morning, we have added a box on the pillar by the west basement entrance for anything you may want to drop off at the church when no one is here or you don’t have a key.  We have had problems when something is placed in the mailbox and it disappears.  If you have any questions, see Nancy.

 Persecution of Christians in Nigeria – Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country.  Sadly, over 50,000Christians were murdered there in the last few years.  Violence and terror are rapidly increasing.  Heavily armed jihadis attack Christian homes at night.  The elderly and men are shot.  Women are raped, mutilated, and often murdered.  Children are kidnapped.  Homes, businesses and churches are burned to the ground.  Unfortunately, the U.S. mainstream media rarely reports on these massacres.  Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Also, please encourage our elected officials to demand that the Nigerian government protect Christians.  President Trump can be reached by emailing www.whitehouse.gov/contact/.

October – December 2020 Portals of Prayer are available on the table in the narthex and in the west entrance of the basement.  Please take one for yourself, a relative, friend or neighbor.
