Yard Sale –The Church has decided to hold a yard sale to benefit the Barnabas Project scheduled for Saturday, July 23rd. We will be accepting children and youth clothing (no adult) and anything else that is clean and usable and ready for sale. We are asking as many people as possible to volunteer for at least an hour to set up on Thursday and Friday and to help sell on Saturday. Please keep this community outreach project in your prayers that we may receive the assistance necessary to make this a success. START GATHERING your items together when you do your spring cleaning!!

BJ’s Membership Renewals – Renewals for BJ’s are due by May 22nd. Cost is $30 per membership. Checks should be made payable to “Calvary Lutheran Church” with “BJ Membership” in the notation section. The cost is a little higher but still below the individual membership cost. If you would like to join BJ’s or are not renewing your membership, please notify Nancy Lee.

ANTS! ANTS! We have ants! We have ants in several areas of the church. We are asking for your help in trying to control the situation. 1) All food and drinks should stay in the large room of the basement; 2) if you drop or spill something, please clean it up; 3) if you throw something that has had food or liquid in it in the recycling bin, please take the time to rinse it out; 4) if you throw food/drink containers in a trash can outside of the large room in the basement, please empty that trash in the big trash can in the basement. Recycling is collected every other week and trash is picked up on Tuesdays so if trash/recycling is not handled properly, there is enough time for the ants to invade.

Vacation Bible School will be held from June 26 – July 1st. We need volunteer teachers, helpers, kitchen help, cookie makers, craft helpers, and monetary donations. Please begin to pray and consider helping in any area needed. Sign-up sheets and more information are forthcoming.

Love Fund Door Offering TODAY after the service.

Lawn Mowing Sign-up Sheet is available on the table in the narthex. A can for gas money is on the window shelf.
