Calvary Link: Unashamed!

By: Calvary Church Last Updated: April 25, 2013

calvary-link-headerCan you believe that this month alone our church community will welcome more than 50 people into our membership! Wow. And this Sunday I'm in the water with new people who are being baptized--who are taking the plunge--who are saying, "I'm all in with Jesus!" This Sunday in both of our services we will worship, proclaim the Word, and welcome new people to Calvary Church!

A dear mother in our community sent this note to one of our pastors this week: "I just want to say thank you again for the time you took with my daughter yesterday. Your explaining God's salvation message and all the illustrations you used meant so much...I think I enjoyed hearing it as much as her!" Her daughter will be baptized this Sunday--and the family invited their unchurched soccer friends to come watch. They said Yes! This little girl is all in for Jesus--unashamed of her savior--and already sharing the Gospel. Don't you just love it?

Join me in rejoicing this weekend with those who are unashamed, who are with me in the water, and who are following Jesus no matter what the cost. Keep witnessing Calvary Church.You are spreading the Word throughout Valparaiso, Northwest Indiana, and the World.
