It seems like there is always something fun and exciting going on around here as we "spread the Word throughout Valparaiso, Northwest Indiana, and the World." What a joy it was last Sunday to receive the little children into our community last Sunday. I just loved it!
This Sunday the worship leader for one of Africa's largest churches will be on the stage with our own Kurt Felsman for what will prove to be one of those unforgettable Sundays at Calvary. I will be continuing my current sermon series and this week I'm going to talk about how to discover your calling! On Sunday evening, former NBA star Roger Powell (currently assistant to Coach Bryce Drew) will be speaking to our teens. Wow!
If you are not part of our church family I would invite you to join our next Catalyst Membership Class taught by Pastor Jon Nitta. You are most welcome to join the Calvary Family!
