November 2014 - Calvary Rescue Mission
Rebuilding the Lives of Homeless Men
“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength…” - Isaiah 40:31
A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
It is hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner, with Christmas not
too far away as well. These holidays are a tremendous time for us as believers to show
God's lovingkindness to those who are in need. We will be out in our community on
the day before Thanksgiving from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm distributing dinners and visiting with folks. There
is also a need for volunteers to bring cooked food to the mission for Thanksgiving evening.
We will stuff bags for our Children's Christmas Event on Thursday, December 11, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm
and the event will be on Saturday, December 13 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. Our men will receive their
Christmas bags during the Chapel service on the evening of Thursday, December 18. Our greatest need is
toys for the children's Christmas event. The second most needed item is food for the “Feed the 400
Thanksgiving” event. You will find more details concerning these events on page 2 of this newsletter.
Thank you so much for your precious prayers, help and support. Burden's are lifted at Calvary!
