Someone mentioned to me, “Have a nice Ash Wednesday.” Made me wonder??

Question: “What is Ash Wednesday?”

Answer: Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Its official name is “Day of Ashes,” so called because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross. Since it is exactly 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday, it will always fall on a Wednesday—there cannot be an “Ash Thursday” or “Ash Monday.” The Bible never mentions Ash Wednesday—for that matter, it never mentions Lent.

The following link is good information.

Rooted and Grounded ~ Daily Stability


“We have no roots, and no nourishment, without Jesus. It is the core doctrine of Christianity that salvation comes by faith through grace in Jesus Christ alone. All religions, philosophies, and creeds cannot satisfy outside of Jesus. Christ is the Living Water and the Bread of Life.

A lifetime of faithfulness is cultivated by daily stability. Grow your relationship with the Lord, read His Word, and hold fast to sound doctrine. Beware of those that would pull you away from God and His church. Don’t be a tumbleweed Christian, without roots, without direction, and without growth. Even though you can’t see the fruit today, one day, if you are rooted in Christ, you will look back on a life of faithfulness and see all God has done.”  Paul Chappel

Evangelist Brent Sivnksty

Our special meetings begin at Calvary Bible Church with Brent Sivnksty were a blessing.  If you missed the meetings you can still listen to the series from 2Peter 1:1-8.  “Knowing Christ & Growing in Christ”  Just click on picture to listen to the messages.

Brent and Becky were married on February 22, 1997. Becky graduated from BJU with a degree in Interior Design. She enjoys coffee shops, going to yard sales and thrift shops, and shopping. Brent is an avid hunter and fisherman, enjoys weight lifting and practicing karate; he also enjoys coffee shops and especially good ice cream parlors! Hunter was born on October 4, 2001 and our second son Konner was born on August 4, 2003. Both of the boys enjoy trucks, tools, and playing outside. The Sivnkstys travel together as a family as much as possible, and they enjoy serving the Lord together in the ministry of evangelism.

Fred Smith Memorial Park will be a huge blessing to all the ministries God has blessed us with at Calvary Bible Church!


Praying for our nation

blessed nation

Lord Jesus, thou who art the way, the truth, and the life; hear us as we pray for the truth that shall make all free. Teach us that liberty is not only to be loved but also to be lived. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books. It costs too much to be hoarded. Help us see that our liberty is not the right to do as we please, but the opportunity to please to do what is right.
Peter Marshall, Before the U.S. Senate.
