Calvary Themes for 2022

Each year, Senior Pastor John Munro presents a set of biblical themes to challenge our congregation and staff and provide a focus for the year as we worship, study, and serve together. Pick up a card in the Galleria to keep in your Bible to remind you of our themes.

In January, Pastor Munro preached a short series of messages on our 2022 themes. Rewatch those messages below for review throughout the year.


SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD


But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. — Matthew 6:33

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near. — Isaiah 55:6

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11–13

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. — Colossians 3:1

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING


…Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints. — Ephesians 6:18

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison — that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. — Colossians 4:2–4

Pray without ceasing. — 1 Thessalonians 5:17

INVEST IN THE NEXT GENERATION


He established a testimony in Jacob
   and appointed a law in Israel,
which he commanded our fathers
   to teach to their children, 
that the next generation might know them,
   the children yet unborn,
and arise and tell them to their children,
   so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
   but keep his commandments.
— Psalm 78:5–7

Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away. — Matthew 19:13–15

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. — Deuteronomy 6:4–9

ENCOURAGE AND BUILD UP OTHERS


Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. — 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. — Galatians 6:2

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. — 1 Peter 4:10
