    Happy Mothers’ Day again! Shouldn’t we thank Mom more than just one day a year.  I mean it’s only because of mothers that we even live to see the other 364 days of the year.  It is coming close to the end of the school year – parties to attend, people to see, projects to submit, and many other busy things. And who is it that helps us get it all done and get where we need to be?  Mom.  So mom, here is to you for one more day. Happy Mothers’ Day Part II.  Check out what is happening this week in Calvary Students.

    Wednesday Night – 

    We are going to end the school year by walking through a series called “UnSocial Media”. Our focus will be the fact that God created us for community and real/healthy relationships.  We so often forgo on building real relationships and settling for the superficial “appearance” of a relationship through social media. There is also a focus where we will speak directly to the habits and choices that we form and make through social media.  We will gather at each of our campuses on Wednesdays from 6-8PM.

    High School Movie Night – This coming Wednesday, May 15th the high school students of Calvary Church have the privilege of attending a private screening of the movie “Unplanned“. This movie was released nationally last month and highlights the reality of abortion. It is a movie that pulls no punches when it comes to abortion and can be graphic at times.  The movie is rated “R” for this reason. There is a review that you can see online HERE.  In order to attend, you need to complete a registration form HERE.  We will pull out from the Clearwater Campus Student Center at 6PM, or you can meet us at the AMC Woodlands theater by 6:30. This is a FREE event and we want you to consider joining us.  We believe it would be good for parents and students to attend as a way of fostering a conversation about the film. If you will not be participating, regular programming will be offered at all campuses.

    Check out the information below for Campus Specific needs.

    Senior Sunday – May 19th 

    Each year, we take time in our services to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating seniors. If you have a student that is graduating from high school this year and want to be involved in this day, register at www.calvary.us/seniorsunday.  We will provide a graduate recognition at each our campuses on Sunday, May 19th, and we hope that you will join us for this time.

    GENERATE Summer Camp – $350/person – July 15-19

    This summer, we are headed back to Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA for a week of GENERATE Camp. This week-long camp is for all 6th grade – 12th grade students. We will be gone July 15-19 for an unbelievable week growing closer to the Lord and as a group. We have students from all of our campuses along with great leaders that are ready to experience GENERATE. For details about camp and to register, visit www.calvary.us/studentcamp

    Calvary Students Summer

    So, Summer is here. We are ready to get things rocking. You will be receiving a reminder in the mail this week, and you can check out our online happenings at www.calvary.us/studentsummer later this week. We hope you will make plans to join us for all of our events. As an extra weekly help, the Calvary Student Center on the Clearwater Campus will be opened on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 12PM – 5PM. This is a great space for students to come hang out, play some games, gather for Bible study or grab some coffee.
