This Week at Calvin
Calvin Christian Reformed Church encourages all citizens that are registered to vote to exercise that right on Tuesday, November 5th. When you are finished, come to our church at 326 7th St SE for a Soup Supper serving pig-in-a blankets, homemade soups, homemade desserts and taverns. Do you want to take the meal to go? We will have a carryout line! Serving time is from 5 to 7 PM. Ticket prices are Adults: $10, Children 5 - 10: $5, and Children under 5: free. Profits from this year's Soup Supper will be divided equally between the Sioux City Gospel Mission and the Center for Financial Education in Le Mars. As in the past this all takes place in the church's basement. HOWEVER, this year we have a chair lift to assist those where steps are a challenge. Please do not be afraid to ask for this service. We would love to help you get to the basement safely.
As you enter our church you will see empty and filled boxes for Operation Christmas child on the shelf in the narthex. If you feel so inclined you may take an empty box and return it filled to the church by Sunday, November 17. There are suggestions in each one for great gift ideas.
The Annual Bowl-a-Thon for Youth for Christ will take place on November 3. Join Calvin from 2:30 - 5:30 at the Sweet 16 Lanes in Le Mars. It is free with snacks, pop, shoes and bowling included. We are hoping to have 1 adult and 1 youth team for Calvin. Elaine Van Otterloo will answer any questions you have if you would like to join the groups.
