Calvary Link: We Love Our Kids

Calvary-Link-Good-to-be-HomeThere are hundreds of kids hearing and experiencing the gospel at Calvary Church this week. I look back on my childhood experiences in church with warm memories. Because of my church, I made a commitment to Jesus, and I wanted to grow up and be like my pastor! The church can transform a child!

Thank you to the more than 100 volunteers who are joyfully serving our children at Calvary this week. Together we are making the gospel attractive (Titus 2.10) not only for our kids but also for the unchurched kids in our community and their parents! Everyone is invited to Family Fun Night tomorrow evening starting at 5:45p. There will be food, there will be fun, and yes, there will be the infamous dunk tank!

I'm working hard on Sunday's exposition, and our worship team will be ready to rock as we enjoy God together with friends old and new. Last Sunday night, I met some amazing new people at a standing-room-only Coffee with the Pastors. And I heard some of your names when we asked, "How did you hear about Calvary?" The church is growing right in the middle of summertime!

PS Make sure you are connected with us on social media. You can follow any of our staff members on Facebook or keep up with ministry activities, such as the Student Ministries students, who are leading a Vacation Bible School for inner-city kids in New Orleans this week.
