Hello Calvary Church Family,
As of 12pm yesterday, we are no longer physically meeting as a corporate body until the medical authorities give the go ahead to gather once again. Although we’ve not yet missed a Sunday gathering, I’m already looking forward to it.
Along with our Sunday morning gatherings, Awana Clubs, Trek and Exploring the Cults are no longer meeting.
I wanted to take a couple of minutes to share with you some of the things our elders and ministry leaders have in the works that we hope will allow us to fellowship and to interact with one another as the body of Christ. We are in uncertain times, therefore we must, as God’s people endeavor all the more to encourage and to edify our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Each Sunday morning we encourage you to join us online for the reading of the Scriptures, for prayer and for the preaching God’s Word. We will not be attempting to recreate online what can be experienced only in a physical gathering. Therefore, we will not be live-streaming worship in music. You’ll receive an invitation to join us via email and/or text.
Both the adult Sunday Studies will be conducted on the Zoom platform, which allows for class participation. The teachers will contact you with the details about how to get connected.
Don’t neglect this opportunity to be together. It is important, it is valuable and it is God ordained that the local church continue steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship and in breaking bread and the prayers (Acts 2:42).
The elders and ministry team leaders will be calling to check on you and to pray with you throughout this time and we trust the Lord will use it for your edification.
I invite you to be intentional in reaching out to your brothers and sisters in Christ to be a blessing. Grab your church directory and begin to pray for one another. Send and email or a text, give a phone call, offer to pray with them or to read the scripture with them.
King David wrote in Psalm 133, Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity.
Christian unity describes a oneness of spirit, a oneness of purpose, a oneness in hope because of the common bond we have in Christ.
