  • Mount Calvary collects aluminum cans for recycling. Profits from this go to the Social Ministry Board to help pay for holiday food baskets. Single cans may be placed in containers in the old kitchen (by the back door), in the Fellowship Hall, and in the Annex (by the soda machine). Bundles of cans may be deposited at the collection point near the dumpster in the back parking lot.

  • If you want a current to-the-minute church directory, just call or e-mail the church office. It only takes a minute for me to create a PDF that’s easy to use and up-to-date, then email it to you. – Jack
