Sunday, Christmas Day, service will be at 8:45 AM, with lots of hymns sung, and a special Christmas message. Council also continued discussion from previous meetings about what Mt. Calvary’s mission and goals are for the future.
Stewardship/Administration—Gearing down and spending the final months of the year preparing and finalizing the church budget for 2023, always keeping in mind the best use of funds for the good of all, doing God’s work with our hands, and keeping Mt. Calvary on steady footing well into the future.
