From The Pastor's Heart
Greetings MCBC and all our Friends,
We give God, Thanks and Praise for the favor on this Journey of New Beginnings. As we begin this first Quarter of the year, we are excited but also prayerful about many things.
The emotional state of this world is at a point that we have never seen before. At this point in time there is more taking of lives by guns than days in the year. More falling away from ethics and morals than adhere to sound principles and spiritual foundations. The need to assemble is no longer related to the gathering at the House of the Lord. The “let us go into the house….”, is no longer related to the house of the Lord but to other places.
But there is hope; hope because of the Promises of God and this coming month that reminds us of the mercy and love of God. Black History Month and the Month of Love give us renewed reason to wait on the Lord. Wait in service, worship, ministry, believing that “they that wait shall renew their strength.”
Our history teaches us that evil will not prevail, love of God is stronger that hate, truth ignored will rise up and right will prevail in due time; because God sees, God cares and God loves.
May we strive to Love God more, Love God’s Walk and Word, Love and Long for God’s Presence and Seek God’s Will and Way.
May we do all we can to see that His Kingdom Come and His Will be Done. May we love one another; because they-the world, will know we are Christians by our love.
MCBC Weekly Greetings
Greetings Mount Calvary Family and Friends,
Psalm 138:7 (KJV) reads, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.”
Keep in prayer those found on our sick and shut-in list and especially families who are going through bereavement.
If you didn’t participate in the Mt. Calvary blanket brigade last week, you have this week to do so. Blankets can be drop off at the church on Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM and on Sunday.
Bible Study is every Wednesday at 7:30PM. Our church school lesson for Sunday, February 5th is entitled “The Supremacy of Jesus Christ.” Our background and print reading comes from Colossians 1:15-20.
Thank you, be blessed and continue to enjoy your day.
