First things…Happy August 1st! August marks the beginning of a new season of ministry at Calvary and with it I hope to engage a new habit that may prove to be a blessing to you. On the 1st of each month I want to send out a brief note to let you know what is happening around Calvary and hopefully provide a few helpful tools for your spiritual journey as well.
Dear Son, So you are ready to take a bride. In a few days you will be married.
June is the month for weddings so the next two weekends at Calvary we’re talking marriage. Whether you are married or single, I think you’ll be blessed as we talk about the importance of having and maintaining healthy relationships built on biblical principles.
Often I am asked to address our graduating class at Calvary Christian High School. Last Friday, May 24th I addressed more than 90 graduates and hundreds of family members and friends who had gathered for the glad occasion of their graduation. Some have asked for the remarks to be shared so here they are.
The numbers are now in from our X150 commitment in March and it is an amazing report to share.
How can I say “thank you”? Maybe if I say it 150 times? My heart is so full and my spirit has been so encouraged by the many stories of sacrifice, faith and generosity. I am humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude and thanksgiving.
You only turn 150 once, or so I’ve been told. Next month Calvary will celebrate 150 years of ministry. Next month, March 2016, we will celebrate this once in a lifetime moment. The weekend of March 5-6 is not to be missed. Please help me by calling the entire Calvary family home for a grand celebration.
Time.com has labeled him “the reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S.” and this coming weekend Calvary has the privilege of welcoming Dr. Al Mohler as our guest speaker.
This is a historic year at Calvary. 2016 marks the 150th anniversary of Calvary’s founding. Calvary was planted as the Midway Baptist Church in the Clear Water harbor settlement in 1866, one year after the Civil War ended.
Today marks 10 years to the day that Calvary held the first worship service at the new campus. On December 18, 2005, one week before Christmas, we launched a new era of ministry at Calvary.
