september 10, 2017 homecoming celebration
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.
