    With Wings Like Eagles:
    Soaring High in Life's Challenges
    Sunday mornings, 9:45 AM
    11/17: "Plagued by Worry and Anxiety"

    With Wings Like Eagles: Soaring High in Life's Challenges
    Sunday mornings, 9:45 AM

    A new series from Pastor Munro



    Life is tough. Each day brings its own challenges, and everyone, including followers of Jesus Christ, may feel overwhelmed. What are we supposed to do?

    Isaiah 40:31 offers a brilliant promise: “They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” But what does this really mean?

    Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 AM, as Pastor John Munro begins a new message series on “Soaring High in Life’s Challenges.” God-centered living gives us hope and supernatural strength. Don’t miss this encouraging, life-changing new series—and invite others!

    8/25:  Trusting God in Tough Times
    9/1:  Trials and Temptations
    9/8:  Abandoned by God
    9/15:  The Burning Fuse of Anger

    Orphan Sunday
    Sunday, November 17
    Supporting adoption, foster care & ministry to orphans

    Orphan Sunday
    November 17, 2019


    One day. One voice. One purpose.

    Join us in praying for orphans worldwide as Calvary and our HOME Ministry observe Orphan Sunday on November 17. We will recognize the day along with more than 130 organizations that encourage Christian families to display the love of God by considering adoption, foster care, and ministry to orphans locally and around the world.

    It's a day to remember that God’s Word calls for followers of Christ to care for the orphaned and vulnerable children and share the love of Christ.

    How you can make a difference? 

    • Stop by the Galleria table on Sunday, November 17, hosted by Calvary's HOME Ministry for photos and information about children in foster care who are available for adoption.
    • Participate in the ONE Child effort to pray specifically for a North Carolina child who has expressed a desire for a family.
    • Meet representatives from our HOME Ministry who can share information and ways you can get involved — or consider volunteering with our HOME ministry team! 

    "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world." James 1:27

    The Life of Moses
    Sundays evenings, 6:00 PM
    11/17: "The Passover"

    The Life of Moses
    A new evening series from Pastor Munro

    Sundays at 6:00 PM



    Moses is one of the outstanding figures of the Old Testament. He's the brilliant leader called by God to deliver Israel from the slavery of Egypt, the great lawgiver who received the Ten Commandments, and the friend of God who recorded the first five books of the Bible.

    The New Testament reminds us that Moses turned his back on “the fleeting pleasures of sin” (Hebrews 11:25). He lived by faith and chose to follow God rather than a comfortable life in Egypt.

    Join us on Sunday evenings as we study the life of Moses and discover what it means to live by faith — to be obedient to the purposes of God and to trust God for the impossible!
