Mother's Day at Calvary was simply amazing! Once again the house was packed with people who were here to worship, as well as join us in celebrating the arrival of 39 little children who are precious to the Lord. I know I keep saying it, but we sure do need some more room around here!
As you know, this month I am asking you to join my wife and I in making a commitment to our Even More generosity initiative. We simply cannot do this without you! Your commitment will help shape the future of this church community. Most importantly, your commitment will impact lives for eternity!
I am praying for you as you talk with family, get wise counsel, and ask God to guide you. Our goal is 337 commitments, and we're well on our way. Beginning this week and continuing throughout May, we will be updating you on the progress of our generosity initiative. You can see the number of commitments that have been made to the project in the column on the right. Be one of the 337! Help us change lives forever!
I am excited to be with you again this Sunday. I've been digging into Acts 8 and can't wait to share God's Word with you. Plan to be with your church family this week and bring a friend. No matter how many chairs it takes, we'll find a seat for everyone.
