In Nehemiah 2:20, we hear the answer of Nehemiah to his critics, Sanballat and Tobiah. Verse 19 says, "They laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, 'What is this thing that ye do?'" Nehemiah replies, "The God of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build."
Now, we are not building a wall, and as far as I know, we have no Sanballats or Tobiahs in our church, but I do love the answer of Nehemiah. It is full of resolve and promise. I believe the God of Heaven will prosper us here at Calvary church. And with that hope and faith, we will arise and build! The excitement is building!
This Wednesday night, we will host our Capital dinner at the Nazarene fellowship hall on Vestal Road here in Plainfield. If you haven't signed the guest list, it's never too late to come! There will be a place for you. I trust everyone has already been praying about what you can give. We need people who can give in the next 30 days. Then, we will have the three year option. What can you give across the next three years? We hope to walk away from the dinner Wednesday night with the answer. . .Paid in Full! Don't miss this exciting presentation! A great night is planned. As Daniel Cantlebarry, Sr. would say, "Are you excited yet?" Rm
Below is just a preliminary drawing of the new canopy and steeple. Be sure to come to the Looking Forward Campaign Dinner on January 28th to see the full scale color drawings for all of the additions and renovations! Each of us can be a vital part of this new phase!
