This past weekend was our 6th annual Heritage Sunday as well as the 50th anniversary of Calvary Baptist Church! If you missed this special 3-day celebration, you missed out on powerful preaching, stirring music, countless memories, wonderful food, and a weekend filled overall with fun and fellowship with our church family!
God has been very good to our church over the past 50 years, and hearing the remembrances from former pastors and members made the history of our church that much more real. We were all reminded of how God led Pastor Wallace Strawn and his family to start Calvary Baptist Church and of all the sacrifices that they and so many others down through the years have made to bring our church to where we are today.
Thank you to each and every person who put in countless hours of work to make this past weekend possible. You know who you are and more importantly, God knows and will bless your labor of love.
As we look forward to the next 50 years, let’s do so with the words to our Heritage Sunday theme song in mind:
