Don't miss this Sunday! The man Christianity Today called 'The African Church Planter' will be here for all three worship services. Oscar Muriu is the Senior Pastor of Nairobi Chapel, an African mega-church of 15,000 worshippers. Nairobi Chapel is committed to planting vibrant, community-invested churches like ours all over the world. He is going to bless us - and challenge us!
And there's more! Guest worship artist Jennie Wellsand will be onstage with Kurt Felsman, Matt Siewart, and our amazing worship team this Sunday in celebration of our church's up and coming fall missions trip. Jennie will be joining my wife and twenty ladies from Calvary to love on girls in Guatemala who have been abused and abandoned. God is using us to spread hope in NWI and the world!
Josh and Christy Reasoner are blessing us all with their grace-saturated response to this most difficult trial in their lives. They are praying and praising in the midst of their daughter Kaitlyn's struggle, and Josh is sharing his heart with us all (here). What an amazing staff we have at Calvary. Just amazing.
I'm praying for Kaitlyn's joy. I'm praying for your joy.
