Resurrection Sunday is April 1. Calvary Bible Church will be having a special presentation followed by the preaching of God’s Word. Invite someone to be your guest this Resurrection Sunday. April 1, 2018
Service starts at 11:00 am
Question: “Why is the resurrection of Jesus Christ important?”
Answer: The resurrection of Jesus is important for several reasons. First, the resurrection witnesses to the immense power of God Himself. To believe in the resurrection is to believe in God. If God exists, and if He created the universe and has power over it, then He has power to raise the dead. If He does not have such power, He is not worthy of our faith and worship. Only He who created life can resurrect it after death, only He can reverse the hideousness that is death itself, and only He can remove the sting and gain the victory over the grave (1 Corinthians 15:54–55). In resurrecting Jesus from the grave, God reminds us of His absolute sovereignty over life and death.
Come hear the “Doors of the Bible” Series at Calvary Bible Church. Pastor Stacey Wilder will be preaching from God’s Word about the opportunities and challenges of the Doors in the Bible. Please come and be a part of our services.
“Opening or Closing?”
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.

“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
Just want to thank God for the faithfulness that He has shown to Calvary Bible Church. God has wonderfully provided for 77 plus years. What a blessing to count the blessings He has bestowed.
Today, at Calvary Bible Church, we had a wonderful service dedicating our new park to the Lord. We honored our Lord Jesus Christ, and our desire is for Him to use it for His glory. Fred Smith Memorial Park will be a huge blessing to all the ministries God has blessed us with at Calvary Bible Church!
Had a great week of VBS! Looking forward to Day Camp !
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.
