Calvary Independent Baptist Church
We want to thank everyone who attended services this weekend. Sunday morning’s service included special music and singing from members and guests that was a real blessing to hear. We thank our visitors who were with us this weekend and invite them back for any of our services.
The message for the morning service was taken from John 6:38-71 titled “It Is All About Jesus: Why He Came, What He Claimed and Who Did He Call.” Paul tells us that believers are called through the gospel. Do you believe Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose again the third day? If so, and you do not have a personal relationship with Christ, maybe he is calling you unto salvation today. Would you believe and call upon him today for salvation?
Sunday night’s service included a message from I Thessalonians 1:1-10 titled “A Saved Church.” A local church should be made up of saved believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It should be a group of individuals who are saved, serving and surrendered unto the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
After the message we had our semi-annual business meeting. We hope you are attending a local church regularly, but if not, we would love to have you visit and worship God with us this coming Sunday. We are located south of Clanton, just past Dollar General, off U.S. 31 on Fulmer Drive. Sunday School: 9 a.m., Children’s Church and adult worship service: 10 a.m., Sunday evening service 5:30 p.m., and Wednesday service 6:30 p.m. For more information, call Pastor Oscar Mims at 205-755-9399.

Bro. Gary Fant got the morning worship service started off with “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” and “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder.” Bro. Dennis blessed us with
“Help Is On the Way.”
Bro. Dennis’ text came from Hebrews 13:1-8: We as Christians have to learn that when things come up with our brothers and sisters in Christ, we need to lift each other up instead of trying to push people further in the ground. No one is perfect and no one is above anyone else because we are all made in the image of God. We need to always remember that we are all created equally in God’s eyes. We as Christians also need to love our brothers and sisters in Christ no matter what comes our way.
The service ended with several coming to pray and we had three to come forward to join fellowship with our church family.
Bro. Gary Fant got the evening service started off with “I Can Tell You the Time,” “Oh, I Want to See Him” and “The Unclouded Day.” Bro. Dennis’ text came from Psalm 46:1-11. There is a place we can go, even in the time of refuge, where we can find peace, and that is in Jesus Christ. We as Christians need to learn that we can put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ, not man. Man will always let us down, but Jesus Christ sticks closer than a brother. We as Christians need to learn not to be fearful and turn our situations over to him; he hasn’t changed, and he will always be there for us.
Happy Birthday to Billy Burnett, Gail Fant and Carson Riley.
