The Lord's Supper - July 1 at 11:00 AM
On July 1st during the Morning Service, we are celebrating the Lord's Supper and remembering what the Lord Jesus Christ did for us to save us from our sins. Before Jesus went to the cross, He met with His disciples and instituted the memorial which we observe today. For more than 2,000 years Christians from around the world have met on Sunday and declared their faith in the Lord by gathering together and taking part in the communion service. Let us draw near to the Lord and reflect on His sacrifice, remember the blood that He shed for us, and renew our commitment to Him!!!
Praise God for New Blessings!
This week begins another exciting time for us as Justin Dilliplane, Pastor and Mrs. Cartwright's grandson will be joining our church staff as a pastoral intern for the summer. Justin just completed his 3rd year of college at Pensacola Christian College; he is planning to follow the Lord’s leading to go into the ministry when his schooling is completed so this summer will be a vital part in his preparations to serve the Lord. Justin will be assisting us in all aspects of the ministry with a special focus on our teens, young adults, music, soul winning , and discipleship. Please pray for Justin as He seeks to glorify the Lord through this summer ministry!
Congratulations, Tajh and Randy!
We want to give special recognition and congratulations to Tajh Young-Grant, who graduated from Penn Wood High School and Randy Johnson, who graduated from Upper Darby High School this year. We are proud of them and are praying that God will lead them as they take new steps of faith in the days ahead. Both of them have been gifted by God in very special ways, and God has a perfect plan for them that He will reveal in His time.
West Coast Baptist College Ministry Team - July 12, 7:00 PM
We are very excited to have the young people from the West Coast Baptist College Ministry Team here on Thursday July 12 at 7:00 PM. This outstanding group of college students travels throughout the summer ministering in churches through beautiful Christian music, strong testimonies of faith in Christ, and the powerful preaching of God's word. Everyone is invited to join us for a great night of fellowship in the Lord. We will be serving pizza following the service, and we would love for you to be a part of the great things that God is going to do that night by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The 7:14 Prayer Initiative
There are 2 major needs which we would like to call to your attention as a motivation for prayer throughout the year. First, there is the need for prayer for our building program. This is a major project for our church and requires the united effort in prayer of all of our members and friends. Pray for: the Pastor, Joe Kaiser, the building committee, the approvals we need from the Township, the finances needed, and all that is involved in the building process.
Secondly, and MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY, is the need for revival in our personal lives, our families, our church, and our country. We are asking God to ignite a burden of prayer for revival in all of our lives. In this election year we are becoming increasingly aware of the desperate need of our country to experience the power of God in a genuine, heaven sent revival. God has done it before here in America, and He has also recorded for us the testimony of revivals that came in the Bible during the days of Nehemiah, Josiah, and even Jonah. May God be pleased to use the "7:14 Prayer Initiative" to transform us and conform us to His image!

Paul’s Prayer for God’s People
“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Eph. 3:14-21.
Church membership is the biblical principle of being part of a local body of believers who are committed to the fulfillment of the great commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ found in Matthew 28:18-20. Church membership also involves being a part of a body of believers who are committed to the great commandments of Matthew 22:36-40. In order to become a member at Calvary, you must first receive the gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus Christ. Also, you need to follow the Lord's command to be baptized (immersed) as a disciple of Jesus Christ and make your your commitment to follow Him and love Him and serve Him. If you would like to be a part of the membership of Calvary Independent Baptist Church please let us know by coming forward in the invitation time of the service or by seeing the Pastor personally. (Cf. Acts 2:41-47)
The Bible teaches that one of the first steps of obedience that a child of God can take is to be baptized (see Matt. 28:18-20). If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, but have not taken this important step to be baptized yet, please see Pastor Cartwright and let us know your desire to fulfill God's will in this area of your life.
