Lay Eucharistic Ministers
Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEMs) are lay members of the congregation who have completed a training program and have been licensed by the Bishop of a diocese to deliver Holy Communion to persons who are unable to attend regularly scheduled services due to illness, injury, or similar circumstances. LEM visits for Calvary Church are typically arranged for the third Sunday in each month. Requests for the services of a LEM should be communicated to The Reverend Leslie Reimer.
The Pastoral Care Committee makes every effort to facilitate making transportation arrangements for persons wishing to attend services at Calvary Church but who are unable to provide for their own needs. Volunteers are needed for both short-term and long-term needs.
Each Sunday following the primary service, the altar flowers are collected and divided into small bouquets to be delivered to parishioners who have had some special event occur in their life that week. Illness, the birth of a child, marriage, and the death of a loved one are among the many reasons why someone in the Calvary Community is targeted for flower delivery.
The Soup Group
Containers of soup are prepared by the Soup Group volunteers and made available to those who occasionally need help with meals.
