Calvary Baptist Church (South)
Cleveland, Texas Location
Greetings from the great Republic of Texas. We are excited to see God’s hand moving right before our eyes. We are now meeting in our own building that God provided out of ‘thin air’. We installed pews today and it really looks like a church now. In our short time here, we have seen 8 get saved and 4 of those were baptized at our first baptism service on 29 September. Please keep up your prayers and support. We promise to spread the legacy of CBC that Preacher and Miss Wanda began lo these many years ago with Pastor Jim and Miss Kim are preserving as we expand. We are excited to see what God will do next.
We love y’all (that’s southern for yinz),
What: Not everyone travels for for Thanksgiving. For those of us who do not have family in the area, but still want to gather for Thanksgiving, we would like to offer an invitation to you to join our family. We meet at CBC around noon, eat dinner, then retire to the upstairs and watch some football on the big screen. It has become a great tradition here at Calvary. Many will just pop in before going to visit family, others will stay all day. It is a very relaxed, casual atmosphere where you can spend this wonderful holiday around your church family. So, consider yourself invited. We hope to see you there.
When: Thursday, November 28th @ Noon till whenever
Where: Calvary Baptist Church
917 Wilhelm Rd. Harrisburg, PA 17111
Food: There is an optional food sign up sheet on the Pastor’s door at church
Congratulations to our two newest members of our ministry staff.
Brother Eric Gustafson and Brother Justin Thompson were ordained on April 7, 2013.
Additionally Justin Thompson has been added to the pastoral staff as Associate Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church.
Over the past months I have been preaching and teaching about the Apostle Paul’s method of church planting, what I have dubbed the “Paul Pattern”.
At the same time, the Lord has been leading us to make some adjustments in how and where we minister. We will be moving our residence to the Houston, Texas area to assist “Pastor Gus” in planting a church there.
We will continue as Senior Pastor at Calvary and follow in the footsteps of men like Dr. J. Frank Norris who simultaneously pastored in Texas and Michigan.
Calvary has a unique and blessed sense of ministry and fellowship that America desperately needs at this time in our national history. That has helped me to understand why He is leading us in what some might consider a rather unusual move. But, when one reads Scripture, it is not unusual at all and instead it is the pattern we are to follow.
And of course, our Pastor Emeritus, Dr. Ernie Moore, will continue to assist the leadership of our fellowship, regardless of where in the world he finds himself. Thanks to the age we live in, we can visit by electronic media or even face to face with a number of VOIP media like Skype and ooVoo.
We hope and pray that you will become even more involved in the Calvary ministry. We all need one another to pull together during any times of changes.
Thank you for your sweet spirit, your dedication to souls and to the Lord Jesus Christ. We treasure your prayers for us as ministers, our families, and extended family.
May the sweet Lord bless us one and all now and in the future.
