This morning I delivered the annual "State of the Church Address" at Calvary Baptist Church. During the message, we reviewed and remembered several of the major happenings at our church in 2022. We reflected on God's faithfulness to our congregation and celebrated the many specific ways He has used us to advance His Kingdom in our city and around the world this past year. Sometimes it is good to reflect on such things, to remind us that God is indeed at work in our small church, and to encourage us to press on in the new year. Jesus is alive and well, and is active at Calvary Baptist Church in the lives of our people. The state of our church is strong. He is building His church, and the gates of hell will not stand against it. Starting next week we will resume our regular preaching services. God bless you.
