LOOKING UP WEEKLY NEWS
FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2021
FROM THE SENIOR PASTOR
An Open Door
I love the theme for our missions emphasis this year: Open Doors. With all of the restrictions, barriers, and social distancing which have resulted from COVID–19, we praise God that “the Word of God is not bound” (2 Timothy 2:9). God has graciously opened many doors for us at Calvary. We will hear of some on Sunday. I have asked Jim Cashwell, Pastor of Missions, to preach this Sunday and let us know what has happened as we have gone through some of these open doors!

To the church in Philadelphia, it was said, “Behold, I have set before you an open door which no one is able to shut” (Revelation 3:8). This is the unstoppable power of God. All of the opposition from the forces of darkness cannot close that door. Hallelujah!
Pastor John H. Munro
