A Time For Gratitude (November 2022 Newsletter)

November 2022

November is the month of thanksgiving. Because of this, Calvary has developed a tradition known as Gratitude Sunday which is celebrated each year on the Sunday prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, Gratitude Sunday at Calvary will be on November 20th.

Gratitude Sunday will include the following schedule:

8:15 Breakfast at Calvary (Donuts and Coffee)

9:00 Packing Party for Operation Christmas Child (Goal: 400 Shoeboxes)

10:15 Bible Study Classes at Calvary (i.e., Sunday School)

11:15 Joint Worship Service in the Family Life Center (Goal: 300 People)

12:00 Thanksgiving Lunch in the Family Life Center

So, as you can see, Gratitude Sunday will be a BIG day for our church. So, let’s all “jump in” in a BIG way:

B = Be present.

I = Invite someone.

G = Give generously.

Goals for Gratitude Sunday 2022:

· Our worship attendance goal is 300 people. Our average worship attendance for the year is 204 people.

· Our Operation Christmas Child shoebox goal is to pack 400 shoeboxes. Last year we set a Calvary record at 311 shoeboxes packed.

· Our financial goal is to catch up on the 2022 budget. Currently, we need $205,000 to catch up. Having a strong finish to our financial year will enable us to be in a good position as we prepare to launch the strategic plan in March of 2023.

So, Calvary family, let’s all do our part to make Gratitude Sunday a really BIG day at Calvary.


Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
