A word from Pastor Rich Block
The new Sunday school year is here with a new class: children 18 months to 3 years!
The idea for this class came about from the information in Marathon County LIFE report. One of the key focuses as needs in the county is fostering early childhood learning opportunities. Research has shown that children that are read to and who have positive interactions with other people are more advanced in their development.
Thanks to Sue Brown, the Elementary Education Coordinator, we now have this program. She was able to find a curriculum for this age and Crystal Kasper is the adult leading this young group.
Please keep this ministry, along with all of our education and faith development ministries, in your prayers!
Messenger Message from Pastor Rich Block
Earlier in September was the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of my ordination as a pastor and for being at Mt. Calvary for 15 years. Thank you very much for all of the thoughts that were shared, for the friends and colleagues who came to the
celebration, for all of the cards and gifts that I was given!
One of the important themes that was reinforced for me is that we are doing
ministry together. The Apostle Paul wrote “Brothers and sisters, become imitators of me and watch those who live this way – you can use us as models.” (Common
English Bible, Philippians 3: 17). So also may we be models for one another!
It was also an opportunity for me to recall some of the “key ideas” of my life,
preaching and teaching. Here is a summary of my notes.
