Vicar Jennifer is such an inspiration to all of her members at Calvary and St. John's and to the community! Her idea to create a Giving Cupboard came to life at Calvary. She created this beautiful spot at Calvary where we can all be inspired to give from our hearts.
I have seen the need for God’s care to be felt in practical ways. A gas card for families traveling to medical procedures, self care items for weary young mothers, a small birthday gift for someone confined at home. The giving cupboard is now available if your heart is moved to extend the reach of God’s kindness during Vicar’s pastoral care visits thank you to all who gave during our noisy offering collection last month toward this effort. May God bless the givers and those who will receive in times of need. In God’s love, Vicar Jennifer

In addition, Calvary was able to give 10 quilts to AVAIL in Antigo and 10 quilts for the refugees at Fort McCoy. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone in our Kindred Lutheran Parish churches that helped to make this happen!
Foster Families Are Such A Blessing!
What a blessing to give so generously to families who open their homes to children in need of care. Mike Jewell from Foster Care Connect gratefully received the donated gift cards to local restaurants from Calvary Church. This will allow those providing foster care a chance to go out for a family meal with the children while patronizing our local eating spots. Thank you Calvary for helping to show God’s love in our community! - Vicar Jennifer
CROP Hunger Walk
What a great group from Calvary – they really did WALK the TALK to feed the hungry. 25% of the funds raised remain in Langlade County and are directed to our local food pantries in Antigo, Elcho and White Lake. Members/friends/family of Calvary took part in the CROP Hunger Walk on October 3, 2021. CROPHunger Walks are community based walk events held in cities and towns across the United States, raising funds to support the global mission of Church World Service (CWS), a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.

Holy and Faithful God, Be attentive to all who wait expectantly for your mercy in times of crisis, illness, fear, and grief. Answer them when they cry out to you.
You have clothed the saints in the light of Christ. Teach us to live in his ways until the great day when he comes to make all things new.
