Pastor Lionel will be on his way home to NWI shortly, and I know he is looking forward to being back with us on Sunday. I hope you will be with us as well. We are going to share plans for a generosity initiative to support the Calvary Church campus expansion. Together we can welcome even more people into our church community!
Preparations for Even More Sunday have been in the works for several months. You will see the most up-to-date floor plans for the church expansion and hear the heart of the elders and pastoral staff for this project. Thank you for praying, asking great questions, and making even better suggestions. You have been instrumental in getting us to this point. Your continued participation is welcome as we enter a new phase of the project and consider together how to make our dream of a bigger, more community-oriented campus a reality.
Pastor Lionel will be opening the Word this Sunday as we continue our study in Acts. It's fascinating to see the church just beginning to form in Jerusalem as "the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved" (Acts 2:47). And it's amazing to realize we are part of a long tradition of growing churches.
