F R E E - Going, going, gone!
Kay Marshall, Calvary member who recently passed away, was an avid baker and cook. Her tremendous collection of cookbooks are on display in the Narthex and everyone is invited to take whatever books you'd like. There are also several bags on the table near the books that you can use to take home your new treasures.

Please stop by anytime during the week (8:00 a.m. until noon) or check it out after worship services. The cookbooks will be available through Sunday, September 13.

This is a wonderful way for all of us to have a little bit of Kay in our homes and hearts.

The Calvary Knitters have extra yarn that they will not be using and are offering it up to anyone who would like it.

Stop by the table in the Narthex and take any yarn that you can use for smaller projects.

The church is open during the week, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Or you can check it out before or after worship on Saturday night and Sunday morning. The yard will be available through Sunday, September 13.
Worship Updates

Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.   

We have taken many steps to ensure as safe of an environment as possible – please use your own judgement in choosing to come. You must do what is most comfortable for you. We will also continue to offer the weekend worship materials via email, as well as delivery of home communion to any member who wishes to receive it. Please call the office at 262.786.4010 for more details or to sign up to receive home communion.
Safe practices are in place for all worship services.

Face masks are required while at worship. 
Social distancing has been established in the Sanctuary with assigned pews for each service, designated by colored tags (see photo). Please sit only in the pew with the tag designated for that service. If you are not sitting with your family, please observe the 6’ distance between you and someone next to you (approximately two arm lengths).

All high touch points such as pews and door handles are sanitized after each service. The Altar Guild follows strict sanitation practices when filling the cups. We are using hosts instead of bread and wine is "self serve". All servers will wash their hands in the Sacristy prior to serving communion.

Mission of the Month & Community Outreach
School Kit Collection

Calvary is participating in the creation of 75 School Kits for Lutheran World Relief.

We are offering two opportunities for you to participate in filling the backpacks.

You may pick up one or more backpacks in the narthex, along with the shopping list of school supplies to fill it. You will buy all the items necessary for each backpack, fill and return it to the bins in the narthex by 9/23/20

There is a bulletin board in the Narthex with cards indicating a specific school supply to be purchased (for example: 50 pencils or 10 boxes of crayons).

You may take as many cards as you’d like, buy the appropriate items and return them to the bins in the Narthex by 9/23/20.
Personal Care Kit Collection

Cleanliness may not actually be next to godliness, but it certainly helps a person feel more human. When families find their homes destroyed, or must flee for their safety, soap and a towel rarely make the cut for what they can carry. The simple items included in a Personal Care Kit provide much-needed self-care, critical germ fighting, and the chance to regain dignity amidst situations of fear and uncertainty

Items to be included in the kit are:
-One light weight bath size towel, dark color recommended
-Two or three bath size bars of soap equaling 8 to 9 oz. in original wrapping
-One adult size toothbrush in its original packaging (or an individual toothbrush in a business size envelope)
-One sturdy comb, remove packaging
-One metal nail clipper, remove packaging

Please place your donations in the personal care kit collection bin in the Narthex no later than 9/23/20.
Wisconsin summer brings heat and humidity, but it also brings an abundance of tomatoes, zucchini, and cucumbers from our home gardens.
