Calvary Link: Let the Children Come!

Calvary-Link-Good-to-be-HomeThis Sunday is Mother's Day at Calvary Church, and it is one of my favorite Sundays of the year. We don't stop all the great things we do every Sunday to focus solely on the family. Instead, we incorporate the family into our worship experience as we focus on God and all He has done for us through Christ.

We have nearly 40 little babies to pray over this Sunday in our Child Dedication ceremonies! Wow! That means that every 10 days a new baby comes into our church community. Isn't that amazing? As Jesus said, "Let the little children come!" As always, our worship will be God-centered, and the preaching will be straight from the text of Scripture!

Thank you for your input on our Vision 2020. If you think of something that will make our plans better, please do let us know. The thing that drives us around here is changing lives FOREVER! We are really excited about what God has done, and what we believe He will do through us.

Vision 2020 - Tell Us What You Think
Calvary's sense of community and shared commitment to Jesus Christ is drawing people in so quickly that our walls can barely hold them all! It's a great problem to have, but we're dreaming big about an expansion project that will make room for everyone. The Vision 2020 page on our website has detailed plans, a frequently asked question section, and a place to tell us what you think. You can also email to share your comments and suggestions. We want to hear from you!
