The LIFEGroup Survey will be available December 4. Your group members can complete it on-line or we can provide paper copies. Our goal is to have every member of every LIFEGroup complete this survey! Thank you in advance for your participation!
Every Sunday this January, we will be holding two open forums for LIFEGroup drivers. These will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions, share ideas, and hear David talk about the future of LIFEGroups at Calvary.

Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
5"When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' 6If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. 7Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to hous…
