Summer is here, and with it, longer days, warmer temperatures and vacations. This Sunday at 9:30am, we will kick-off a summer series designed with you in mind and we are calling it Heroes of Faith. Summer Sundays at Calvary Parkside are designed to be both connecting and stand-alone. We recognize that the summer months, for many in our church family, means travel. So what we want to do is provide summer teaching that gives you the freedom to travel, but still be connected. So while each Sunday is a stand-alone message, each message is connected to an overall theme. And this summer's theme is faith.
In Hebrews 11, the author defines faith as: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." He goes on to give us a list of both men and women in the Old Testament who were heroes of faith. These people didn't all behave well, yet there were moments in their lives where they demonstrated great faith. Through this summer series, we will gain an understanding, not just of these biblical heroes of faith; but how, through their faith, we can gain a better understanding of Jesus, who as the author of Hebrews writes, is "The pioneer and perfecter of our faith".
After the service, "Connect with One Another Authentically", in our Adult Discipleship class. This class meets at 11:00am and is currently studying the last days of Jesus' time here on earth. Learn more about Jesus, His love for you, and His call on our lives to follow Him.
Where's Calvary Parkside?: Join us this summer for a virtual all-church road trip. How? It's simple. Take your Calvary Parkside t-shirt with you on vacation. Then email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. It's that easy! Need a Calvary Parkside t-shirt? Stop by the Next Step Table this Sunday and pick one up and let's continue to "Make Jesus non-ignorable in Beaverton and to the ends of the earth."
Calvary Parkside Deacons: Do you easily spot practical needs and then take the initiative to meet them efficiently? Are you drawn with compassion to care for and serve those in our church family who are widows, homebound, or just need someone to visit and pray with them. Do others see in you a spirit of humility, gentleness and a willingness to be flexible? Consider becoming a Calvary Parkside Deacon. This role is open to both men and women who are current members of our church. For more information, contact Doug Boyd or Larry Annes.
Note: Should you have any physical needs such as: benevolence, moving heavy items, transportation needs, etc., please reach out to Greg and Jonella Malinowski, who serve as our Lead Deacons.
See you Sunday!
