Spring Elective SeriesWednesdays, 7:00–8:15 PM | April 28 – May 19
On-Campus & LivestreamWe live in troubled times. Political divisions, racial tensions, and a global pandemic are but a few of the challenges we faced over the past year. Indeed, all the world is seemingly in a “vice grip,” with pressure mounting each day.Have you responded as a follower of Christ? Or has anger, fear, resentment, and worry characterized your behavior? Are you focused on the troubles of this world… or are you looking to Christ? Has your approach to these challenges indicated to others that you are following Christ? Do you radiate the light of our Lord?
Calvary's four themes for 2021 will help keep us focused, committed, and united as followers of Jesus Christ. In this 4-week elective series, we'll explore the challenges and encourage and equip you to shine as citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven "in such a time as this" (Esther 4:14).
We'll meet on campus — masks and social distancing are required. The series will also be available via Livestream and Facebook Live each week. We are NOT yet serving Fellowship Dinner, and there is no childcare provided. Please note the 7:00 PM start time!
