I'm writing you from the 2015 Gospel Coalition Conference in Orlando. I've enjoyed listening to the likes of John Piper, Tim Keller, Phil Ryken, and Mark Dever exposit the Word of God. The theme of this year's conference has been a theology of the new heavens and the new earth, and it's been amazing worshipping with 6,000 pastors from all around the world.
I look forward to being back with you this weekend as we enjoy week two of The Creed and learn about the Savior who died, descended to the dead, and was raised to life on the third day. The baptismal waters will be stirring in all three services on Sunday as we rejoice with those who are making known their confession of faith in Christ.
As always, worship will be amazing as we delight in the triune God together--and with some of the worship team from Nairobi Chapel!
See you Sunday!
WHAT'S NEW AT CALVARY
We are looking ahead and planning for Calvary's future! Be here on Vision Sunday, 4.26, as we begin to bring that future into focus. We will show you how our church can make room for more worshippers, create space to relax and enjoy friends, ensure every ministry has room to grow, and continue to change lives.

Mother's Day Child Dedication

Parents will need to attend the Child Dedication Class to participate. CLICK HERE for more information and to register.
Stories of Changed Lives
Stories inspire us and encourage us in our journey with God. Hearing the great things God is doing in our midst gives us hope to keep loving and serving right where we are. See again the story the Reasoner family shared on Easter at www.calvaryweb.net/stories. You can also share your God story here! Tell us what you see God doing in and around Calvary Church.
