A spirit-filled worship service, including communion was held. Beautiful music by our Chancel Choir, led by Lindsay Delmarter. Cherie Murchie read a lovely history of Calvary's lineage of pastors, and she also provided a Powerpoint show prior to the service with historical photos of how the campus structure has changed over the years. Two former pastor's wives attended - Mrs. Morgan West, and Mrs. Robert Sargent. Then following worship, Coffee Fellowship was held in the Narthex as folks conversed and looked at displays for the upcoming Veteran's Memorial book, Lenten devotional, pictorial directory, cookbook, and many purchased the commemorative 125th Anniversary Ornament with logo designed by Eva Dietz. At 11:30 a.m. the church bell rang signalling folks to head downstairs for the "Merchant's Lunch" that had been traditionally served over the years. A delicious chicken and rice casserole, jello salad, pickled beet garnish, and roll. Following the main course, you could choose your slice of pie from a delicious selection. Everyone agreed, it was a lovely day. A feeling of history living and a Christ-filled family of believers abounded.
A cooperative event between Calvary and Community Presbyterian Church in Buckley at Cathy Matson's farm in SW Enumclaw. A wide variety of activities took place, from picking pumpkins, tasting cider, and singing around the campfire.
The Church Life Ministry Team sponsored an event for women of the church and community. About 80 women attended this event. Women from Calvary shared their bone china tea cups to help set the scene. The Seattle Children's Hospital Guild was invited to present their vintage clothing in a "Fashions Through the Decades" Show (1860-1960). A collection of poems were read by Martha Blodgett. Refreshments included a delicious citrus/pineapple punch, a selection of finger sandwiches, a variety of sweets - cookies, scones, cream puffs, belgian pastries, chocolates, and of course, TEA!
This event was educational, fulfilling, and all around fabulous!
