Midweek Message

August 11, 2022

Dear Calvary family,


“But as for me and my house… we will serve the Lord.” That was our closing good word or benediction on Sunday.

How has it been going for you and your household this week? Have you chosen to serve the Lord? Lived and loved like Jesus this week? Or are you like me and mine- ready for renewal and refocus and it is only Thursday.


No matter our situation: the good news in this story from Joshua 24:6 is that God remains faithful even as we stray from our faithfulness. The choice is always ours to return back, redirect ourselves, especially when life is full or difficult, or distracting or hard. You can do that today. 


Join us Sunday as we talk about how words mirror the heart in our parenting with a purpose.


Pressing into the new of purposeful parenting,

Pastor Michelle
