Dear Calvary Chapel family,
Philippians 1:3–6 – I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. 6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
We serve an awesome God who does amazing things. I have the privilege of serving our awesome God with an amazing group of Christ followers called Calvary Chapel. In just the last two weeks here is what we have been privileged to be part of:
On Sunday, November 16th at 11:30 A.M. Calvary Chapel, by the grace of God and the generosity of God’s people and with the help of WMCA and Kevin McCullough, went live on 570AM WMCA for our 11:30 A.M. Sunday morning service. A big thank you goes to our media team for their amazing efforts.
On Thursday, November 20th at 4 P.M. Calvary Chapel, by the grace of God and the generosity of God’s people raised a new sign, lighting up the harbor. A special thank you goes to our designers who put together an awesome sign.
On Sunday, November 23rd Calvary Chapel, by the grace of God and the generosity of God’s people, collected over 350 Operation Christmas Child Boxes or as they are appropriately called” gospel opportunities” as part of Staten Island’s 5000 box record. A huge thank you goes out to all who were involved.
On Monday, November 24th at 12:30 P.M. Calvary Chapel, by the grace of God and the generosity of God’s people (our church family raised more than 105,000.00 for the project, thanks for giving to make this possible) closed on the property at 26 Maple Parkway concluding a year long journey . Thank you all for your prayers. Our regular attorney was rushed to the hospital that morning and was unable to attend the closing. The sellers’ attorney was delayed by broken pipes in his development. This has been a spiritual endeavor from the start.
On Tuesday, November 25th from 6:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M., Calvary Chapel, by the grace of God and the generosity of God’s people (You gave $1600.00 to make it possible) gave out over 100 turkeys and food boxes to families in need in our community. Thank you for all you who volunteered and worked so hard to make this happen. Almost every family was prayed with and given the DVD “How to Get to City” from New York City”.
“Thank you Lord for the privilege of serving You and thank You that we can do it together. Thank You for providing for our every need. May we never take the privilege of being used by You or the work each of us contributes for granted. We humbly ask that You would please continue to use us for Your kingdom and your Glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
