In this Bible teaching series, Mt. Calvary Senior Pastor Jesse Waggoner shares what the Bible says about itself as seen in the pictures that are used to describe it. You will learn not only of the Bible but from the Bible as you discover the Bible’s intended place in your daily life.
The Bible is a Light
In part one of “Images of the Bible” Jesse Waggoner teaches us that the best guidance comes from the pages of Scripture.
In this study we will look in-depth at 2 major themes that are tucked away in the shortest book of the Bible. This book is packed with truths that not only effected the people (Edomites) of his time but can also challenge our lives as well. Walk along as we explore this unfamiliar yet enriching Scripture.
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 at Mt. Calvary
This year’s Expository Preaching Week speaker will be with us Sunday Evening, April 28 at 6:00 pm.
This year’s speaker is Spencer Smith. Spencer was saved at the age of 5 through the work of Child Evangelism Fellowship. He became interested in ministry at the age of 15 and felt that God called him to youth ministry when he saw the need for solid, biblical teaching to youth and teens, which is what he is preparing for here at ABC. Spencer attended ABC online for a year before transferring to campus where he is currently a Senior enrolled in the Youth and Family program with a concentration in Biblical Counseling. Spencer serves as a Resident Assistant and his Christian Service ministry this year is with Magnify. Spencer has also served in several capacities with CEF including a camping ministry under the direction of ABC alumni Dan and Michelle Russel.
This is a big week. For those who are followers of Jesus, Easter is a high-point in our year as we commemorate the death of our Lord and celebrate His resurrection. And we want to invite you to join us as we do. If you are connected to the Mt. Calvary family please come and invite others to come with you.
Just like any holiday, Easter can be a busy time. There are egg hunts to attend, candy to buy, eggs to paint, and new outfits to pick out. In the midst of all the activities it can be easy for kids, and adults, to forget what it is we are celebrating during the Easter season. It can also be easy to miss out on the incredible power of the resurrection that we celebrate at Easter simply because we’ve become familiar with the story. The purpose of this devotional is to give you, as a parent, a tool to meaningfully connect with your kids for ten days as you prepare for Easter. Each of these ten devotionals includes a brief description you can read to your kids as well as a Scripture reading and questions you can
discuss as a family.
The Easter Story. The story of unfailing, sacrificial love. The story told for centuries of a King Who gave His life to save His people for generations to come. The story that would eradicate darkness and radiate perfect Light into the lives of imperfect people.
The Easter story is not one with an end, but one with a ripple effect, creating Easter stories for every person who believes and proclaims the name of Jesus as Lord and Savior. Because of Him, our stories are forever changed! My Easter Story deals with personal accounts of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
The Mt. Calvary Baptist Church choir will present beautiful music that will remind us of our own personal stories with Jesus. We will be reminded of the unimaginable sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, His victorious resurrection from the grave to give us everlasting life, the power of His justice and mercy in our lives, the amazing hope we have in Him and the depths of His overwhelming love.
