Calvary Link: Thank You

By: Calvary Church Last Updated: April 20, 2017

Calvary-Link-You-Can-ChangeI want to thank you for being a church that is passionate about changing lives forever with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of you, we had our biggest weekend ever at Calvary Church. Seven services, more than 1200 worshippers on Good Friday, and more than 2500 on Easter Sunday. And we turned no one away.

You came early and we packed out the 6:45a and 8:15a services. You invited friends and neighbors. You served as greeters and ushers. You worked in the parking lot greeting people as they arrived. You served in Calvary Kids and the nursery and in so many other ways. And what a job our worship team did. Most of them are volunteers who gave up their weekend for the gospel!

I also want to say thank you to our staff. We have a great team of pastors, directors, and assistants who are passionate about the gospel. I really love working with them!

This Sunday we kick off a 3-week mini-series entitled You CAN Change. We are going to open the Word and talk about what the Bible says about change. I'm confident it will bless us all!

Africa Trip Recap
When a mission team goes out into the world, they carry the rest of the church with them. In February, with your support, the band Sevenglory and several Calvary Church members spent 10 days in Africa to encourage our church planting partners as they spread the hope of the gospel in their local communities.
