  • Gold star friday

    Adulting can be hard! We have so many different responsibilities at home and at work that leaves little time for any kind of leisure activities or self care. Much of the effort we put into life goes unnoticed and we rarely receive any recognition for a job well done. I can remember being a stay-at-home mom for about 15 years. I was hardly ever told I was doing a good job. In 2014, I decided to go back to school.
    I can remember the joy and excitement when I got feedback on my first assignment in 20 years! It was a 10 page research paper and my professor gave me an 'A' and said "Job well done!" I was over the moon with excitement due to those simple words. It was a recognition of the hard work I had put into that paper. No one else had ever really given me any recognition in the hard work I put into being a mom. 

    As people who are responsible for the education of children, you probably do a lot of encouraging and recognition of their hard work on their studies. Perhaps you even use stickers (perhaps gold star stickers!) to show the children that their effort was noticed. 

    The book of Psalms in chapter 147 verse 4 says that God, who created the heavens and the earth, has determined the number of stars in the sky and has called each one of them by name. God recognizes each one of the those stars and has given them a name. Therefore, they matter. 

    In the same way, your friends at Mount Calvary Church wanted to recognize all of you for the hard work you do each and every day with Gold Star Friday! We notice what you do to enrich the lives of the children in your care. What you do, matters! 

    Our prayer is that the gold stars that you received today will remind you that not only does what you do matter in the lives of the children you reach, but you matter to Mount Calvary Church and more importantly, you matter to God. 

    Thank you for all that you do!

  • Encouragement for You from Elizabeth - Director of Care and Women's Ministries

    September 2021

    I love new beginnings! New beginnings mean a fresh start and a clean slate. As you embark on a new school year, I just want to encourage you as you so diligently serve these precious little ones in our community. Education is a calling and the impact you make on their tiny lives each and every day is so very important.

    Just because something is a calling, does not mean it is always easy. There will always be something that comes up that will create distraction and division, but I would like to encourage you with these words from the Apostle Paul to the church in Galatia:

    "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."(Galatians 6:9-10 NIV)

    I believe what Paul is trying to do here is give the Galatian church hope that their work is not in vain. This is a timeless encouragement for sure. Your work can be really hard at times, but it is good work! Focus on the work you were called to do and trust that one day, there will be a good harvest, even if you do not have the pleasure of seeing it in person.

    Teacher and School Staff Worker, your neighbors at Mount Calvary Church are praying for you and the impact that you are having in the lives of the children you have been called to work with. A new year means new opportunities but we know that the work can become tiring. It's okay! Take heart! Don't give up! We are praying you will have a good harvest!
