Wondering how you’ll survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas? Are you dreading these holidays, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years can’t be recreated? The Surviving the Holidays seminar (held during one of the DivorceCare sessions) is especially helpful for those who are separated or divorced and hurting during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year seasons.

HCC Thanksgiving Hosts

Impact ministry partner Hospitality Center for Chinese (HCC) is looking for Thanksgiving host families. International students would love to experience this holiday and spend the day with an American family, in an American home. Consider sharing your Thanksgiving table and offer the experience of an authentic American Thanksgiving with international undergrad and grad students! It’s a way to travel across the world without leaving your dining room.

Parenting Teens

As your children grow and change, so do their parenting needs. So where do you go for support and encouragement as your kids move into their teen years? This group will give you a place to connect with others, discuss the joys and challenges of being a parent to teenagers, and pray together. A topic will be presented at the gathering each month to guide the discussion. Note that this group is moving to Roseville Campus this fall!

Stephen Ministry

Are you a good listener? Do you naturally empathize with others? Do you have a desire to walk alongside those who are hurting? Are you looking for an opportunity to serve by using your relational skills? We are launching Stephen Ministry at Calvary Church, and if you answered “yes!” to any of these questions, then you have the gifts and skills to care for others in our congregation.

To prepare for lay ministry, Stephen Ministers receive thorough, practical training as well as ongoing supervision
and support. Come explore this new ministry opportunity at Calvary at an informational meeting.
