The best hour of the week happens on Sunday mornings at Calvary Church in Valpo! This weekend at Calvary we are eating and drinking together, and then learning about the most interesting man in the world. In this week’s exposition—Jesus gets mad! Why is he mad? Come and find out and let’s enjoy God together.
This Sunday I will also be telling you about some of the work I will be doing during my up and coming summer sabbatical, as well as the hot summer line-up of speakers we have who will be teaming up with our fantastic worship team. I hope many of you will come hang out in the gym with me for a coffee and a “Sabbath snack” after both the 9a and 10:45a services.
If you are new to Calvary, join us for a coffee Sunday evening at 6:30p at Cornucopia Coffee downtown Valpo. Our staff would love to meet you!
Whatever your challenges—may your relationship with Jesus this week bring you joy. See you Sunday!
PS. If you want to connect with me this summer while I’m on sabbatical, send me a friend request on Facebook!
What's new at Calvary...
Pastor Lionel is blogging his way through the gospel of Mark. Find out how Jesus is challenging the status quo, confounding religious leaders, and changing the world one heart at a time. This week, Jesus breaks the rules (again!) in Mark 2.23-28.
Sabbatical Send Off
This Sunday, 5.6 is Send Off Sunday for our senior pastor! Pastor Lionel will begin his summer sabbatical next week. Join us for worship at 9a or 10:45a. After each service the Youngs will be in the gym to enjoy fellowship time with the church family. Come help us send them off with warm wishes for a refreshing sabbatical.
Coffee With The Pastors
