Touch base with your church family
If you are able to help from home, we are looking for people to touch base with our church family - those who live alone or might not have internet - to check in with them and see how they're doing. If you're interested in helping with this ministry or in some other way remotely, please email Pastor Kelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Serve at The Open Door

Boxes of Hope
As part of River Valley Church’s continued response to Covid-19, they’ve partnered with Boxes of Hope (BOH). BOH is a national campaign to bring hope to the doorsteps of those facing illness, quarantine, job loss, isolation, and fear. RVC has received two semi trucks of emergency relief supplies from Convoy of Hope and have been collecting donations from attendees over the last two weeks. All of these donations will be assembled into boxes that they want to get in the hands of those in need, beginning next Saturday May 16. A standard box will include staple food items, snacks, and hygiene/cleaning items. A baby box will include those items plus baby food, wipes, and diapers. Our hope is that these boxes will meet a person/family’s very basic needs in a small way and will bring them hope in a very uncharted time.
Families and individuals in need of assistance can request a box on the RVC website until Wednesday, May 13: www.rivervalley.org/hope.
Give flowers in honor of someone special
Flowers are a way of remembering those we have lost, celebrating special moments in our lives, and expressing our love for God. If you are interested in ordering flowers for our altar, please email the church at email@example.com and place an order with the following information: your name and phone number, the date the flowers are needed (Sunday) and the reason the flowers are given. Acknowledgement of the flowers will be included in the bulletin for that Sunday. Arrangements are $30 each and will be available for you to take home the following Monday from 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Please mail your check payable to Mount Calvary Lutheran Church to 3930 Rahn Road, Eagan, MN 55122.
Write cards to others in our church family
We would like to do a card ministry at Mount Calvary during this pandemic, but we need your help. We will provide the cards, envelopes, labels and stamps. All you have to do is write a note to the recipient. The first 30 people that contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org will be able to pick up the card packets at Mount Calvary. We will let you know when we have the packets ready. Join us in staying connected with our community!
We're collecting names of your small businesses
We want to invite you to let us know of small, local businesses that you own or are employed by so we can list it on our website for fellow parishioners to see and support it. Let us know where we can find out more information and how to best support the small business here.
