A word from Pastor Rich Block
Have you had what you think is a good idea for a ministry at or through the church, but you did not know how to start it or how to share information with others about that idea? Now we have an opportunity for you!
On Saturday morning, June 1, everyone in the congregation is invited to an event. This is the Mt. Calvary BIDS Morning E-vent! Do you remember our Mission Statement? It is "Jesus BIDS us: Befriend, Invite, Disciple, Send."
After a brief time of music and prayer, we will reflect upon what God has been doing with us in the Unbinding process. This will be followed with the rest of the morning focusing on specific groups looking at ideas for ministry!
Some of those ideas have already been uncovered by the Unbinding Your Heart small groups, but others are waiting to be discovered ... and the Holy Spirit may be working in you to help us uncover a wonderful ministry!
Please come, bring a friend, and share in a morning of conversation. We will conclude at noon with a lunch. Ask me if you have any questions.
Messenger Message from Pastor Rich Block

Last week there was blood and violence everywhere I turned. Our
prayers of the church in worship for this past Sunday included the following petitions, in addition to petitions dealing with support for those with addictions and comfort for those grieving the death of someone close to them, even if this happened years ago.
Bless the family of Maureen Mengelt, who died in an accident caused
by Bishop Bruce Burnside in Madison, WI. Let your healing presence be with her family and with Pastor Burnside and his family.
Bless the people who died in the Boston bombing, including the MIT Campus security officer, and those who were severely injured. Comfort the family of those accused of being the individual's who set the
Bless the families of those who died and were injured in the explosion at the fertilizer plant in West, Texas. Comfort all who are affected by this tragedy.
Comfort all who grieve the death of infants who died before they were born because of complications in their development or whatever caused their death.
Comfort all in our community who are dealing with illness, financial distress, unemployment and other causes of anguish. Let your Spirit be present with the assurance of hope for each individual.
There are so many experiences of sadness and grief in our lives!
“Why?” is one familiar question. “How could God allow this to happen?” is another question. In the midst of chaos and death, bloody violence and mental distress, how can we make sense of what seems senseless?
