Lectionary Bible Study
On Oct. 6 Glen Gildemeister started his Lectionary Bible Study at Calvary and it was wonderful because Glen had fourteen join him for his informative and inspirational Bible Study. Glen has been having a wonderful turnout each month! This will be continuing on the First Sunday of each month – prior to worship form 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM . The study will be based on the Lectionary (lessons) for that Sunday.
Glen was the Director of the Regional History Center at Northern Illinois University and the University Archivist. He presents an interesting and informative study and we are so pleased that he will be back with us to lead us in Bible Study.
Besides – he makes wonderful baked goods! So come enjoy a cup of coffee, fresh bakery, fellowship and dig a little deeper into the lessons for that Sunday morning. It will enhance your worship experience! Thank you Glen!
