Chairman's Message       



Greetings, Calvary Family:

We made it through the first month of 2020 already!  I just wanted to bring you up to speed on somethings that are happening around Calvary this upcoming month:

Beef Stew Clipart - Clip Art Library

January 26, 2020:  We held a retirement dinner for Megan Schlick.  A good time was had by all as we ate goulash prepared & supplied by Tibor & Angella Biro.


We also learned about “Meganisms” from Deacon Hurst.

Pastor and I have previewed the directory proof, made notes, sent it back and have

requested to view a new proof in about 2 weeks so that we can make sure all is in order before “authorizing it to print”.  Still looking like delivery for about the end of February!


If you park near the garage and youth room, your spot will be taken up by a 10yd dumpster that has been rented for the storage room clean-out happening this

weekend in the Fellowship Hall @10am.  Please plan accordingly for parking elsewhere on Calvary’s property.


Pastor Dieterichs will be attending a Central Circuit Conference in Sharon, PA on February 4th and 5th.

Greetings, Calvary Family,

I just wanted to bring you up to speed on a few things for January 2020:

I am expecting an e-mail proof of our Directory @January 31, 2020.  If any corrections need to be made, I will request another proof before final approval for printing.  It is looking like we will have our directories by the end of February 2020.

Don’t forget the Hungarian goulash dinner on Sunday January 26, 2020 in honor of Megan’s retirement after serving our Church as Office Manager for 16 years (2003-2019).

Details are in the weekly Church bulletins in regards to a retirement gift, set-up time: Saturday January 25, 2020 @9am for this dinner, etc.

January 18 and 19th:  Rev. Dr. Paul Hoffman returns to our pulpit for preaching while Pastor Dieterichs is away.  We can probably also expect to “say hello to his little friend” as well!
