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.

Our new Graduates celebrate with our former Graduates. Pastor Theron Crawford Jr. (2010 Grad) gave a great commencement message. It was challenging to both our 2017 graduates and congregation. We were also blessed with music by Katie Wilder (2015 Grad), Kimberly Neinas (2016 Grad) and Harmony Stapleton (2017 Grad). They sang a wonderful song for the Graduation and Awards night. A special thank you to Mrs. Wilder (1985 Grad) for her many years of faithful service to the students of Calvary Bible Academy.
