You are Invited to a Prayer Meeting   


Who: All are welcome, whether you are comfortable praying out loud, or just want to listen and pray silently. If you have a 90 year old relationship with God, or you haven’t yet met God yet, YOU are welcome.
What: Prayer Meeting
Where: Calvary UMC front lawn (inside with inclement weather)
Why: We are all in great need of God, and God invites us to come to him with our praises, our joys, and our struggles and concerns. God invites us to speak and God invites us to listen.
When: Every Tuesday from Noon-1:00pm





Thank you to Jean Johnson for continuing Sunday School studies over this period of time.       I’ve heard it was enjoyed by your regular attendees and many who do not get to attend Sunday School on a regular basis. Your dedication has been tremendous. Thank you for keeping everyone close to the study of His word!






 REMINDER: With the Covid-19 affecting so many families in the Quad Cities, the food pantry is as busy as ever or moreso! Our donations are still needed. Even though the church is not open, you can still stop by and drop off your donations. Current needs include cake mixes and juice, however anything is welcome! The office is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and some Fridays from 8 to 12 noon. Just stop by, ring the bell and we will let you in to drop off your donations. If you would like to call first, the number is 284-6213.







With everything going on in these days, it’s more important than ever to remain faithful in your giving. We’re seeing a good response to our first ever online service. We may be able to come up with an online way for folks to give their offerings, but the short-term answer is one we’re all familiar with: Mailing a check. I’ve mentioned this before, but left off one important piece of information. An ADDRESS!! Please mail checks to: CALVARY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, P.O. BOX 130, WALCOTT, IA 52773

 Mission update: Volunteers are needed to see face masks for local communities. We would love to have Calvary church get involved. Attached are links to patterns. We can also have some printed in the church office to pick up. Unfortunately Joann fabrics is all out of kits. Elastic is very hard to come by. If you find some 1/4 to 1/2 inch in your stash and can share call Sandy Barclay or Diane Young and we will make arrangements to get it. Also Sandy has a lot of thread if anyone needs that. It is a good way to use up all your cotton scraps you have.

You can use bias tape on the sides 36 inches long to make ties instead of elastic.
Finished masks can be dropped at church office or Sandy's porch
If you have questions contact Diane Young.
Thank you for your help in this time of need.
