Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. (Romans 12:10-13)
Whether it’s the Holy Spirit of God or the aroma of our delicious heavenly coffee that’s led you to Calvary Community Church, we want you to know we’re happy you’re here! (But we really hope it was the Holy Spirit!)
As the door opens, you’re greeted by two Son-shine smiles belonging to Denise Smith and Karilyn Hapstack welcoming you to our church family, who will also happily direct you if needed.
After feasting on God’s Word, all are welcomed to gather and fellowship with a cup of Richie’s heavenly coffee (as Pastor Raul likes to say, “He-brews”) along with Rosalie’s divine desserts, Fran’s celebration cakes, or Dom’s bacon brownies (Pastor Carl’s fave.) There are also, bagels and snacks for the kids.
Our Heavenly Father has given us a heart of philoxenia, a Greek word which literally means “to love strangers” (Hebrews 13:2, Romans 12:13.) All who enter our doors are welcomed just as Jesus welcomes us into His Kingdom. As servants of the Most High, we, seek to exemplify God’s grace in koinonia where all are embraced in brotherly/sisterly love, whether you just got here or have been a part of our family community. Our sisters, Mary and Emilia are also extensions of the hands of Christ—always ready to serve, pray and minister to you with His love.
This band of servants also serves in CCC’s Special Events Ministry which can include a Holiday Feast or a Pizza Night Fellowship, a Wedding or a Women’s Retreat, a Movie Night, Beach Service, and Community Outreaches. You see, Christ’s love is contagious here at CCC, so we really don’t need an excuse to gather and fellowship in order to spend time together because we’re family—tightly woven together with the Lord Jesus Christ as our Head and Center. May He be glorified by everything we say and do.
“…and they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” ~ Acts 2:42 ESV
