Service Sunday

On Sunday we left our church service to go serve our great city of Cedar Springs. It was so wonderful to join with other churches in town as we weeded and planted flowers, sang at the Metron nursing home, delivered cookies to those who were working in businesses on Sundays, and provided full-service to customers at the Wesco gas station

Thanks to Solon Center Weslyan Church and North Kent Community Church for helping serve our city. Here are just a few pictures from Service Sunday (photo credits Delbridge Langdon Jr and Rich Tolar).

Can’t wait to do this again next year (if not sooner!).

Flame Award

This award is recognition from our fellowship that Calvary Assembly of God is growing up. The award says that we have achieved the highest level of recognition in our fellowship.

While we are extremely honored to have come this far, we recognize that we haven’t “arrived” yet. Not by a long shot! If we could paraphrase what Paul wrote to the church in Philippi, we would say,

Brothers, we do not consider ourselves yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing we do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, we press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14).

So we humbly accepted this recognition, but we are pressing on for all that God has for Calvary Assembly of God!

Overcoming Temptation

In this video clip, Don Carson gives some practical steps in our battle with temptation. He uses the pull of pornography as an example, but the principles he shares will be helpful in battling any temptation. (Hat tip to Desiring God ministries for this video).

Speaking of pornography, I just read Mark Driscoll’s book Porn-Again Christian. Check out my book review here
