MCBC Weekly Greeting

Good afternoon Mount Calvary family and friends. Everyday is Thanksgiving for a Christian. We certainly have more than enough to be thankful for.   Psalm 100: 4-5 of the King James version says, “Enter into his Gates with Thanksgiving and into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him and bless his name.  For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”

Remember those found on our sick and shut-in list with a call, a card and especially in our prayers. Continue to pray for those bereaved families not only here at Mount Calvary but others that you might know or hear of.

Remember to call in to register for In Person worship on Sunday, December the 12th and 19th.

The church school lesson for Sunday December 5th is entitled Justice and Obedience to the Law.  Our background reading comes from Deuteronomy chapters 5, 10, 27, and chapter 28: 1-2 and our printed text comes from Deuteronomy chapter 5: 1-3,  chapter 10: 12-13 and chapter 27: 1-10. Be sure to check our website for all church related information. Be blessed and continue to enjoy your day.

From the Pastor's Desk

“If it had not been the Lord, where would we be”

Greetings Mt. Calvary,
   These words are a paraphrase from Psalm 124, but they sum up our thoughts as we, as I reflect on the past year, and the previous year. The Lord has brought us – a people of Faith, through a period that has been long and full of unexpected circumstances. But is that not the Promise of God to the children of faith. That God would not leave nor forsake us. That God would provide; That God would lead and guide us along this journey called life? That God would bring us through? The question for us is will we continue to trust him when the journey gets long, and the end seems to be far in the distance.
   The answer is yes! Yes Lord, because our Faith looks up to Thee. We have the Reward of your Faithfulness and of your Deliverance.
   In these last months we will have some important dates to celebrate: Church Anniversary 121 years, Thanksgiving, Christmas- Birth of Christ, all these times of celebration are centered around, “If it had not been the Lord- where would we be.”
   Lord God sustains us- Mt. Calvary for 121 years; blessed us in the midst of a pandemic; turned our sorrows into joy and remains with us in the midst of it all. Sent a Gift of Love to all who will believe that keeps on giving year after year because this Gift is Love Everlasting.
   So, I implore each of us to take the time as we approach the end of the year and stand on the brink of a New Year to pause and reflect, Give Thanks and Recommit ourselves to Worship and Service to the One who has Kept and Provided for us along this Journey.
   “If it had not been the Lord- where would we be.”

      Be Encouraged, Blessings on the Journey!
                                                      Pastor Stowers
