Calvary was recognized on November 13th for the contribution of over 1 million dollars to the ministry of CRU! A milestone award was presented in the service followed by a word of appreciation from CRU president Steve Douglas.
Dear Calvary Community Church,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your generous partnership with the ministries of CRU. I especially appreciate your support of our Campus Ministry, various international projects, and numerous staff members through the years. We can only begin to imagine the impact your giving has had in the eternal destiny of hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of people.
Thank you for your generous and faithful partnership in helping fulfill the Great Commission, and for investing financially in what God is doing around the world in drawing people to himself in every tribe, tongue and nation.
We look forward to continued partnership with you as we help build spiritual movements everywhere, so that everyone will know someone who truly follows Jesus.
May God bless you with His abundant goodness and grace.
Yours in Christ,
In the book of James, we meet a follower of Jesus who is going to sit us down for a little chat. And fair warning here: James isn’t really too concerned about your feelings, or how comfortable you are with someone you don’t know nor have ever met getting pretty personal with you.
Sunday's Comin' (July 7, 2019)
I think all of us want to be wise. The question is, how do we get there?
Preparing For May 26, 2019
Do you know why the church exists? Do you know who formed the church, and how it was formed?
Just a brief reminder that a great way to prepare for the service this coming Sunday is to read the text we will be studying together.
Preparing For Sunday May 12, 1 & 2 Thessalonians
This last Sunday, I preached the first of two sermons on Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians. Here was the sentence I began unpacking, which is my summary of both letters:
Martin Luther warned that the people of the church are always in danger of their hearts straying from the truth of the good news of the kingdom of God found in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
First, it is Palm Sunday. Which means it is the beginning of a week of remembering the most important events in the history of the world: the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, his last meal with his disciples, his death at the hands of sinful men as the result of a sham sentence in a kangaroo court, his burial by those who loved him, and his resurrection from the dead just three days later. All of it for the salvation and rescue of the world.
