Calvary’s fall season has begun with much anticipation, excitement and participation. On Sunday, September 13, over 1200 members and friends came together to fellowship and worship. Of that number, nearly 400 were children who participated in Sunday school or were attended to by our children’s ministry. All of the needed ministry volunteers (60+) stepped forward to assist in loving and teaching our little ones. Over 100+ high school and junior high youth participated in our Allied Force and Power Connection ministries. Our Adult Bible Fellowships were attended by over 240.
During this week the momentum has continued and the church building hummed with activities. Again, over 100+ students participated in the exciting kickoff events for Allied Force and Power Connection. On Wednesday evening, AWANA hosted 180 kids with over 45 leaders and ministry partners supporting the activities.
Both the Women’s and Men’s ministries are also off to strong starts. Tuesday morning saw over 40 women gathered to connect and study God’s word and on Wednesday another 50+ met, with an additional 20 more registered to join next week. The men have held two of their six session offerings and saw about 35 men participate.
The 25 Life Groups, plus the two new ones about to start, continue to provide an expansive opportunity for people to connect, serve one another, and reach out in many ways to our surrounding communities.
Our evangelism team was able to lead a lady to Christ on Tuesday and share the gospel with at least three others who recognized their need and are in the process of considering next steps.
Much more is happening, with many serving behind the scenes to help the Calvary family serve our Lord and Savior. Over 125 of our body will be participating in our twenty-four hour Prayer Vigil this Saturday and Sunday.
God is so good! We have a great responsibility and opportunity to help the Calvary family grow in their relationship with our Lord, connect and care for one another, and advance the gospel in this community.
Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Psalm 111:1
