The Worship Committee has been busy planning for the upcoming months and are very excited to share some of our plans:

1. We are blessed to announce that Catherine Mertens will continue to serve as our organist for the foreseeable future! Thank You!

2. On Mother's Day we will welcome additional special music from Adam Tippert - and a surprise treat!

3. On Father's Day we will also welcome additional special music...as well as Tea/Coffee/Cinnamon Rolls.

4. Since our Campfire Service was so much fun last year, we plan to host another! Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 29!!

5. We have booked Lutheran Camp Mush-A-Mush for a Shared Ministry Worship Service on Sunday, August 26. We will gather with our friends from Mahone Bay for worship at 10am and a pot-luck to follow.

As always, if you have any questions or ideas for upcoming worship services, please do not hesitate to talk to any member of the committee.

The Worship Committee has been busy planning for the upcoming months and are very excited to share some of our plans:

1. Thanks to many hands, a tomb has been constructed in the church which will be closed on Palm Sunday, and re-opened on Easter!

2. Both Pastor Adam and Pastor Catherine will be with us on Easter Sunday!

3. We plan to broaden the scope of our outreach at two pivotal times in the life of our community. On Mother's Day we will collect personal items which will be donated to Harbour House in Bridgewater. Likewise on Father's Day, we will collect personal items for a Men's shelter in Halifax.

Mt. Calvary offers traditional Lutheran Worship taken from the Lutheran Book of Worship and With One Voice. Worship works best when everyone gets involved: standing up, sitting down, perhaps kneeling, shaking hands, walking up to the front, eating, drinking, singing, speaking, praying, maybe even laughing and crying! Our style of worship is "Liturgical". Liturgy is a Greek word that means "the work of the people." Worship is vital for a Christian if you want to continue to be a Christian. Most of the time worship is something you have to do with other people. Why do you think that Jesus taught us to pray "our" Father? If you have questions about our worship service, please feel free to contact us.

 

“Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.”
Psalm 94:12  (HCSB)

The following is taken from the Eastern Synod Website from the Hearts for Ministry Devotions prepared by Pastor Jim Slack.

Discussion
A preacher once said that attending worship is to a Christian what filling up at a service station is to a driver.  It is not so much a retreat from the world, and all of its busyness, worry and need, but a short pause at a refuelling centre.  It is a time for us to check the map, gather our companions, top up the oil, receive a little more air in our tires, put fuel in the tank and then head back onto the road.

Does this preacher have it right?

What is the relationship between worship and discipleship?

Describe an experience in worship that nourished your soul.

Mt. Calvary Worship Committee is comprised of Ernie Carver (Council Liason), Margaret Carver, Louise Veinot, Donna Penney, Esther Ramey and Mary Wagner.  This committee meets regularly to plan worship services for the church in the absence of our regular pastor, or enhancing any of our services.  Some services are lay led and some are led by guests or guest pastors.  Below is a picture of our last summer meeting......
