CALVARY CHURCH WEEKLY NEWS
FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 2021
FROM THE SENIOR PASTOR
A Living God
This past Sunday, we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! Christ is risen indeed! This was a vital reminder that our faith is not just agreeing to doctrine, or coming to church, or doing good things, but rather it is a personal relationship with the living Lord.

I was deeply moved by the testimonies of those who were baptized at the three services. Each one had a personal encounter with the living Christ, and they are forever changed. It is so easy to get into a spiritual rut and to go through the motions rather than continuing to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What a powerful message we have to communicate to others. This Sunday’s message is a reminder that everyone needs Jesus!
Pastor John H. Munro
