In a day when the fruits of creation are often exploited and so much chaos pervades the world in which we live, it is imperative for us to take a moment to pause and breathe in the same Ruach (Spirit of God) that was at work in the beginning of creation. God is still at work! Do we see it in the world around us? You are invited to our new worship series of “Season of Creation” during the month of September at Calvary United Methodist Church. Sunday 10 AM

During the unexpected transition, we might be saying “WHO?” because of the anxiety. How can we follow the path we don’t know yet? You are invited to worship with us on Sunday June 17th, 10AM at Calvary.
Our lives are full of transitions. Most of them come to us unexpectedly. So we often say “What?” because it shocks us, or stuns us, or we feel it’s unbelievable. How can we discern God’s voice in every “What?” moment? You are invited to worship with us on Sunday June 3rd 10AM at Calvary.
Jody Fleming, one of the faithful members of Calvary who has been a truly gift and inspiration for many people passed away a day after Easter Sunday. The first photo was taken when she was in worship with her daughter Wendy Snyder last October 29th. Second & third photos from Wednesday Lunch Bunch gathering, and Jody was surrounded by many friends who celebrated her 100th birthday. Now she is surrounded by so many witnesses in the presence of the Lord.
A memorial service will be held in April 28th 11AM at Calvary. Please keep the family & friends in your prayer…
Commissioning Stephen Leaders
The second phase of the “Praying Our Way Forward” initiative was launched New Year’s Day 2017 with 75 weeks of focused prayer for The United Methodist Church. The effort will begin January 1 in the North Carolina Conference, and wrap up in the West Angola Episcopal area in June 2018.
The aim of ‘Praying Our Way Forward’ is to:
- ask and listen for God’s leadership at this critical time in the life of our church
- in addition to participating in a designated week of prayer, individuals are invited to join the initiative by praying daily and fasting weekly for our church, mission and future
“Praying Our Way Forward” was created by the Council of Bishops as a part of their larger commitment to “lead the church in every part of the world in times of worship, study, discernment, confession and prayer for God’s guidance.” To achieve this mission, they invited The Upper Room to help engage every annual conference around the world. United Methodist Women, United Methodist Men and United Methodist Communications have recently joined the partnership.
Each annual conference will take one week to have intentional prayer for the mission of The United Methodist Church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and for the work of the Commission on a Way Forward, which began meeting in January.
The California-Nevada Annual Conference’s week of prayer will be December 31, 2017 – January 6, 2018.
