Weekly "What’s Up"
from Pastor Bruce Martin
Posted July 29, 2021
Welcome to the Community of Believers known as Calvary Temple Church. Happy long weekend to you and your family! Thank you for your faithfulness in this time. I appreciate our amazing team who has kept online ministry happening, but I’m sure missing being together in person. May I encourage you – stick with us! Don’t give up! Be faithful to Jesus where He’s placed you. We are believing to be back together soon.
This week I have asked Pastor James, our Ethnic Ministries Pastor, to share the sermon with us. You will be encouraged by his message from Joshua.
Our Weekly Prayer Focus this week is Whyte Ridge Baptist Church with Pastor Terry Janke and his wife Pat. Our Shared Funding Partner this week is Ryan Rempel. Thank you for your faithfulness in prayer for churches and missionaries.
Pastor Marlowe and his summer team have planned a drop-in that happens on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. for ages 6-11. Spots are limited so please check it out and register your child here.
Thank you for sharing your testimonies with me. I’ve heard from several of you and it has been a great encouragement to me. If you still would like to, you can share here, as well as read some encouraging stories that others have shared.
This week is your last chance to be included in the special August 15th Water Baptism Service at 6:00 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary. Water baptism is the next step after coming to know Jesus as your personal Saviour. We do it in obedience to Jesus’ command “repent and be baptized” (Acts 2:38). It’s a chance for you to share with your church family the difference Jesus has made in your life. Being immersed in water is a symbol of your old life being buried with Christ and your new life, coming alive in Christ. If you want to take this next step, I encourage you to fill out the form here. Testimonies will be filmed August 10th.
Thank you for joining us exclusively online Sundays at 9:00 a.m. & 10:10 a.m., with our Big City Avenue livestream for kids at 11:30 a.m. We are so thankful that we are still able to livestream all of our services. For those unable to join us online, please note this local phone number that you can call to listen to our traditional service live at 9:00 a.m. 204-808-3080. If you call ahead of time, this system will call you when we go live. Also, if you miss the live stream, you can call in and listen afterwards to the recording.
Our Saturday Morning Prayer Service continues in-person/online hybrid this week. For the near future, this up to 150 person worship experience will be our only “in-person” option of the week. If you’d like to join us online, please e-mail Pastor Cher at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive this week’s link and prayer list in your e-mail Friday afternoon. If you would like to call in from a phone, call the church office for directions. To join us in person there is no pre-registration, you will be asked to sign in at the door.
Thanks again for your faithfulness!
