Pickleball For All 9/10/18

Calling all pickleballers!  We're taking over the gym on Monday, September 10th from 6:30--8:00pm for church-wide pickleball.  All ages and skill levels are welcome! Contact Brian Varble via email or at (859) 232-8955 if you have questions or need more info.

What is pickleball?  The fast growing sport of pickleball combines tennis, table tennis and badminton and is played on a smaller version of a tennis court.  The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.   --lexingtonky.gov

Room in the Inn 11/4/18-3/31/19

Calvary's Room in the Inn Ministry begins November 4th.  We are looking for Sunday School classes to help on 22 Sunday evenings November 4th through March 31st, as well as individuals who can serve as overnight hosts.  You can sign up in Sunday School (by September 23rd) or by contacting Brian Varble via email or at (859) 327-9984 .   Printable sign up form with dates and additional information available here.

When someone experiences hospitality and safety and a feeling of belonging, they experience sanctuary.  --Fr. Charles Strobel, founding director, RITI Nashville

ROOM IN THE INN Lexington’s ministry was born over 10 years ago in response to a cease-and-desist order issued by the LFUCG against a local church who began offering food and shelter in their basement during the coldest nights of the winter. In response to the City’s action, we formed a small delegation that traveled to Nashville to evaluate the ROOM IN THE INN NASHVILLE ministry. The Nashville ministrybegan in 1986 under the leadership of Father Charles Stroble, with 4 churches. It is now Nashville’s second largest shelter with over 200 host congregations participating. 

Each fall, homeless men from the Lexington area are invited to apply to participate in our ministry. Applicants are screened and 24 men are invited to attend. The men are divided into two groups, which are dispatched each night from a central downtown location to participating congregations by an Innkeeper. Participating congregations pick up the guests and transport them to their facilities, where they are greeted with a warm meal and a safe place to sleep for the evening. The following morning, guests receive breakfast and are transported back downtown. Through this process, relationships are formed and lives are changed – not just the guests, everyone involved! http://www.ritilex.org/

Pastor's Paragraph—August 23, 2018

I am delighted to share with you that our Minister of College Students and Young Adults Search Committee feels led to recommend that Niki Hays be called by our church to become our Minister of College Students and Young Adults. This recommendation will be made to our congregation at the special called church business meeting which will take place in our church sanctuary immediately following this coming Sunday’s (August 26) 11:00 a.m. worship service.
 
A native of Texas, Niki presently serves as the Minister of Education and Students at the Monument Baptist Church in Deer Park, Texas. She and her husband Ryan (a Kentucky native who grew up in Versailles, Kentucky) have two children: Ryder age 7, who is beginning the second grade this fall; and Karis or KK as her parents call her, who is two years old.  The entire Hays family will worship with us this coming Sunday, and Niki will share her personal testimony during the combined morning service. Niki and her family have also been invited to attend our annual church picnic Sunday afternoon from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Donamire Farm.
 
Niki will meet with our college students and young adults this Saturday from 4 – 6 p.m. She will also be available in the Fireside Room this coming Sunday morning from 9:15 – 9:45 to meet any church members who would like to drop by before Sunday School. Please take note of some additional information about Niki which is included below. Be in prayer for Niki, her family, and our church as we gather this Sunday to act on our search committee’s recommendation that she be called as our Minister of College Students and Young Adults.
 
Blessings,
Bob

Fourth of July-2018

Happy Independence Day!
The Church Office & ROC will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th

in observance of Independence Day.
The ROC will close at 5:00pm on Tuesday, July 3rd.

The Fourth of July – also known as Independence Day or July 4th – has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence.  history.com
