GIVE THANKS 365

 

 

 

Hey Calvary

 

Tomorrow (Sunday, 11/29) there are several opportunities for worship. On campus (10:00am & 12:00pm), drive-in church (92.1fm), and online (Facebook:  Calvary Inverness). 

Pastor Paul Giglio will be sharing the Word. Below is his summary. Please pray the Lord anoint our heart that we may hear, receive, and understand the truth.

 

Main Text: Proverbs 15:15-17, Ephesians 5:20

This Sunday morning, we turn our attention to two portions of scripture.  The first is Proverbs 15 and the second Ephesians 5. And as we look at these sections we will see in vivid and clear details why we should always be giving thanks to God every day in and through all things.

Of course, that is easier said than done. So, God speaks to us through His Word on the ways in which we can attain and keep an attitude of gratitude each and every day. Many try to find true joy and happiness in  the wealth of this world or fame or accomplishments, but true joy is only found in a heart filled with thanksgiving to God in the good times, the bad times, and all the times in between. 

 Sadly, many choose not to look to the goodness and faithfulness of our great God in and through all the situations and circumstances of our lives. But we do not have to live this way. Thanksgiving is not just a day on the calendar, it is also a daily choice for the Christian. We might not always feel like giving God thanks, but He is no less worthy to be praised and adored. The good news for us is that God, continually helps us to see that there is a better way for us. God always wants His people filled with praise and thanks, every day of the year. Through His word He shows us the when and how regarding our expression of thanks.

Please join me in prayer for tomorrow;s service, that a great outpouring of gratitude and thanksgiving would be poured out upon us as we encourage ourselves in the Word of God. 

In His Service,

Pastor Paul

Asking everyone, who attends, to refrain from handshaking, hugging or congregating in groups of more than ten.

 

It's understandable when asked to refrain from that which is natural for Christians to do (handshaking, hugging, etc.) there will be a negative reaction. 

 

Calvary Chapel Inverness is made up of many spirit filled Christians who have a myriad of opinions of what guidelines should and should not be followed.  

 

It's beneficial to remember the Apostle Paul faced the same type of dilemma with the church in Rome and Corinth. 

Their challenge was not 'social distancing' but "food offered to idols" and "what day they should gather for worship." 

After hearing from all sides he wrote, "We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord" (Romans 15:1-2).

Therefore, with a humble heart and a desire to serve, each of us should seek to abide by the "social distance" protocols.  And, at the same time, ask the Lord to remove the Covid-19 virus and heal all who have been affected by it (physically, emotionally, economically and spiritually).

The sanctuary has been modified to comply with the social distance guidelines of six feet. Ushers are available to assist everyone who attends.

 

Masks are available (not required) for those who feel more comfortable wearing one while in public.

 

No need to make a reservation. The campus is big enough that we can accommodate a large number of people and still be able to abide by the social distance guidelines.

 

Those who are not comfortable being in public, but want to get out of the house, you can drive to the church, remain in your car, and hear the entire service on 92.1 fm.

 

For those who are sick, not feeling well, under the care of a physician, dealing with a compromised immune system, or not ready to be in a public gathering, please continue to worship with us online. Facebook and Youtube (Calvary Inverness), Sunday 10:00 am and 12 pm; Monday 7:00 pm, Wednesday, 7:00 pm, Friday, 7:00pm. 

 

Please continue to pray for the Pastors, Elders and the entire church family.
