Kidstuf May 2018

You are Invited

Lisa and the Kidstuf cast give you a video introduction to the May Dinner Theater.  The menu includes chicken strips and sides and the production focuses on the value of confidence. The Word Section will feature Sam Shovel telling the story of Gideon and the club house crew have plenty of surprises.  Wednesday May 2, 2018, see you there.

What is Kidstuf

KidStuf is where elementary age kids take their parents to learn about character and faith. It’s a fast, noisy, zany, multi-media, kid-focused, parent-centered, virtue-driven 45 minute extravaganza that happens the first Wednesday of every month. We offer a yummy dinner at 6:00 for the whole family (ON US). KidStuf production begins at 7:00.

Carry the Gospel (Matthew 28:16-20)

Pastor Jesse Waggoner continues the series 40 Days after the Cross by taking us to Matthew 28:16-20. In this post-resurrection appearance of Jesus we are given the mission for the church and for our lives.

This message reveals the reasons we are to carry the gospel with us wherever we go and how we can practically live out the Great Commission.

Thoughts from My Blog

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits ” (Psalm 103:1-2).

These two verses are the middle two verses of the English Bible (some lists erroneously cite portions of Psalm 118). Since there are an equal number of verses (31,102) there can be no single “middle verse.” It may be of interest that the chapter and verse divisions that we are all familiar with were not in the original manuscripts but their addition greatly aids our navigation through the Bible, and today leads us to this focus on these two verses that point us to our God and enable us to express our heart to Him.

I note a couple of observations about these “middle verses” first they are words of worship directed to God. They are not primarily about the human condition, man’s destiny or the quality of our lives. The center of the message of the Bible is and our lives should be centered on Him. Truly it is all about Him.

Lesson: Worship is that which brings us back to having our God truly at the center of our thoughts, intents and heart. Secondly not how these verses end. We are not to forget the benefits that God heaps upon us. All “benefits” start and end with Him, and He has a great benefit package.

Maybe this would be a good time to ask how you are doing in the worship department. If it has been awhile since you really met with God in worship make time to do so.

In case you want more here is a RechargeVideo about another verse from Psalm 103.

Expository Preaching Week

Expository Preaching Week

Mt. Calvary Baptist Church is glad to be a co-sponsor of the Lester E. Pipkin Expository Preaching Week at Appalachian Bible College.  This week is intended to encourage ministerial students to value and practice the exposition of the Scriptures.  This week is named in honor of Dr. Lester E. Pipkin, the first president of Appalachian Bible College who was well known for his skill and passion in preaching.  Three students present the same passage in chapel services on campus and the outstanding participant is invited to speak in a service at Mt. Calvary.

This year our speaker will be Dillon Denk.  Dillon is a third year student at ABC. He and his wife Sarah met while involved in Encounter Revival Ministry.  He currently serves on the staff of Grace Bible Church in Asbury, WV.  Dillon will be sharing from Psalm 1 during the evening service, Sunday April 29, 2018.
