The Bible calls the Church to “redeem the time, because the days are evil” (KJV), or, as the NIV puts it, “making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil” Ephesians 5:16. What are our opportunities, do we recognize them, and make the most of them? How will we prepare this year to make the most of our opportunities? There are several projects we will be working on, among them, the “Fellowship Room”. ( To the left in the back as you enter the sanctuary). This needs work because of a leak, and in preparation for future enlargement of the sanctuary. We need lights around the parking lot, which needs to be drained and black-topped. We probably can’t do it all at once, but pray about the priorities, and as we do them a project at a time, we will have it all done almost before we realize it. It requires several things for it al to happen- first – PRAYER. James (4:2) tells us “you do not have because you do not ask God.” Let’s take God’s challenge and ask him for big things- that’s what honors God. We want a safe and attractive property. As pastor of CALVARY CHAPEL I am thankful for all your gifts to me and my family, and for your faithfulness in serving God and our church. I love every one of you, and look forward to many victories of God’s grace as we serve him together this year.
