"For Such a Time as This"

“And who knows but that you have [been made] for such a time as this?”

As we have been switching gears here at Calvary, and adjusting to a “new normal”, it would only make sense for us to switch gears a bit in the way we connect too! Since we aren’t able to gather the way we usually do, we would like to try to use our blog as a “hub” for connecting in the way we usually would connect in our church building – with teaching, sharing, scripture reading, prayer, worship, and reflection. We’ve come up with a new series for this time, “For Such a Time As This”. In this series we will focus on what it means to walk with Jesus and recognize where he is at work during these times.
