2019 Year in Review

1/29/20 | by Eric Wakeling

    Dear Calvary Family,

    We didn't just end the year of 2019, we ended the decade! We are now in the 20s and I wonder if they will be "roaring" or if they will be years of revival as God's Word is proclaimed boldly by His people.

    2019 was another year of seeing God work through the big and exciting things like VBS, Light the Night and the Christmas Tree Lighting. But mostly, we see God at work through the faithful people of this wonderful church. These are the small and unseen moments of taking a meal to a family experiencing grief, meeting a younger person over coffee to share the wisdom God has given you, participating in your LifeGroup every week for years, or sitting down to pray for missionaries overseas.

    We have had some great times and some hard times this year together. This is what it means to be a family. We stick together through it all. We care for each other through it all. We commit to do our part in the family through it all. We laugh, we cry, we hurt, we strive, we trust and we lean into the power of the Holy Spirit for it all. We are better together.

    And we believe that with God's power, anything is possible!

    I encourage you to read through highlights of Calvary's local and global ministry in our 2019 Year in Review. And as you do, I ask you to do two things. First, pray for each of the ministries represented. Also, consider where God may be calling you to get involved and take a step of faith as we follow Jesus together in the year ahead.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,
    Pastor Eric Wakeling
