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,

I love beginnings. They feel like fresh starts. I love mornings, because it means that God has delivered a brand new day for me. New possibilities. New appointments. New opportunities. New mercies.

I’d like to transport you to a time in the far past, back to the very early 500’s B.C.
Something Wonderful Is Coming
I love everything about Christmas. But more than anything, I love why Christmas, or what is traditionally known in the church as Advent, is on the calendar in the first place. Namely, it is a reminder that the Son of God took on flesh, became a man, God with us, in order that he might save his people, and all people, for all time, from their sin.
Malachi accuses Israel of selfishness after the exile and announces that the day of the Lord will purify Israel and prepare them for God's kingdom.
Samuel Johnson was born on September 18, 1709, and was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer.
How Can We Pursue A Long Repentance In The Same Direction?
This last Sunday, in Calvary’s morning gathering, we studied the book of Haggai together as part of God’s Whole Story. Together we heard God speak through his prophet to his people after the exile, challenging them to remain faithful and to rebuild the temple.
