Chairman's January 2023 Message
It's almost 2023! When I graduated High School in 1975, 2023 was so far in the future that it was laughable, yet here we are. They say the older you get the faster time goes. I can agree with that. As we plan for 2023, let's take comfort in knowing that God's timing and plans are perfect. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope."
I wanted to get this message out a few days early because we have some exciting things planned for the first couple of Sundays in January!
New Years Day Service
Come join us for a special New Year's Day worship service at Calvary. There will be no Saturday worship on December 31. Instead we are hoping to gather all our Calvary family and friends for a 10am Sunday service of hymns and lessons that will invite you to reflect on the events of 2022, giving thanks for blessings, seeking forgiveness for wrongs under the cross, and hearing a message of grace that invites you to release the year's events and turn your face to a new year with a clean heart and anticipation of blessings to come. Who in your life would benefit from such a service? Invite them to come along and/or offer them a ride. Let's show the world that Calvary cares!
Epiphany Super Sunday and Meet & Greet with Pastor Morgan
On Sunday, January 8th we have lots going on! We have our Epiphany Church Service at 10 a.m. with the Installation of the 2023 Church Officers. Afterwards, we head downstairs for our ever popular Gordy program followed by a delicious Potluck meal (church will supply fried chicken and drinks, you bring side dishes and desserts). Included with all of that, will be a Meet & Greet with Pastor Morgan. If you haven't gotten a chance to meet Pastor Morgan, this is a great opportunity for you to stop by and say welcome! Church - Gordy - Food - Fun!
