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.
"God's Work. Our Hands." Sunday, September 13, 2020
Members of Calvary looked a little different than last year with our masks on, but we enjoyed participating in "God's Work. Our Hands" Sunday on September 13th. What a joyous day it was as we tied fleece blankets for the Foster children in Langlade County and picked up Veterans' flags in the cemeteries in the Antigo area. Thank you Thrivent for assisting us financially with being able to purchase the supplies for the fleece blankets! We were so glad to have Jennifer Sosinski and her daughter, Rachel, lend a hand. Jennifer is from the Wittenberg area and is a Lay School graduate and candidate for the TEEM Program. The TEEM certificate program provides alternative preparation for those who will provide pastoral ministry in emerging ministry contexts throughout the church. Jennifer led our worship service on Sept 13. The gathering after service gave people the opportunity to learn a little more about Jennifer and her family.

Calvary's Quilt Squad
For 2019 our Calvary's Quilters worked on their beautiful one of a kind creations for 400 hours (plus hours spent sewing at home by members). In that time they made and donated 11 baby quilts to AVAIL, 60 quilts. 8 sewing kits to Lutheran World Relief, and 2 lap quilts to The Bay at Eastview. In addition, they also donated $400.00 to be put toward heating bills at Calvary. Way to go Calvary's Quilters!

Lutheran World Relief Efforts!
Members from Calvary assembled 92 personal care kits, 38 mission quilts, 2 sewing kits, and 100 school kits that will be sent for Lutheran World Relief Efforts. Thank you to everyone who helped donate and assemble items for this tremendous campaign! Thank you also to Thrivent Financial and our members who were Action Team Leaders of Thrivent Financial that helped use those funds to purchase some of the items. Thank you also Julie Kubiaczyk for doing an amazing job as chairperson for Social Concerns Ministry and thank you Larry Poltrock for delivering everything to the delivery site in Wausau! On September 27th our lay minister, Edd Hill, blessed the quilts and other items that will be donated to Lutheran World Relief.
