Foundations Bible Class
The Foundations Bible Class is an 8 week Bible study which is designed to implement the principles of II. Tim. 2:2 that we have been stressing in our ministry recently.† It is one experienced Christian taking one of our newcomers "under his/her wing" and bringing them along in personal discipleship and Christian growth.† The disciple and his teacher will meet together at the Wednesday night church service, and progress through the 8 week course with prayer, accountability, praise, and Bible study.† Pastor Cartwright will teach the lesson on Wednesday, and then the students (disciples) will break off in pairs (or threes) with their teacher for review, clarification, encouragement, and prayer.† We want to encourage everyone to have a part in the class either as a teacher or a student. †
Operation Christmas Child 2017
This year our youth group is going to be involved in Samaritan Purse's "Operation Christmas Child".† This ministry extends to third world countries around the world.† We are asking our church family to be involved in this effort by bringing the gifts to the church during the next two weeks.† Please consider volunteering to donate a shoe box.† Every shoe box given will be accompanied by a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.† This is a world wide missions effort that will touch the lives of boys and girls and their parents in a far reaching effort to see people saved. You can drop off your gifts at the church this week.† Please call Donna Dilliplane to make arrangements for when you will bring them to the church.
FallFest - November 17, 2017 6:00-11:00PM Grades 7-12
Are you looking for a great way to spend a chilly fall night? Why not join High Point Camp this November for FallFest? Jump into the giant boxing ring with a friend and swing for the knockout. Try to soak the crazy guy in the dunk tank. Roast a hotdog or make a símore at the bonfire. Strap on a Sumo wrestling suit and throw your weight around. Test your strength with a 10-lb. sledgehammer and a car thatís just begging to be smashed. On top of all that, a dynamic speaker will bring a challenge from Godís Word and pizza and sodas will be provided. We will have a blast meeting new friends, participating in all the activities, watching the skits, and hearing from Godís Word. We hope to see you at High Point Camp for FallFest.
The cost is only $15 (includes, pizza, drinks, cotton candy, hot dogs, s'mores and all
activities).† You can bring additional money for the Snack Shop, Coffee Shop and Merchandise.†Meet at CIBC at 4:00 PM.† We will return around midnight.† We need to know who is going by Sunday, 11/12. If you have any questions or need a ride, see Donna Dilliplane.
Thanksgiving Service - Tues. Nov. 21 - 7:00 PM
The Thanksgiving Day tradition which we have in our country is one of the most amazing proofs of the Christian heritage which our country was founded upon.† On Tuesday, Nov. 21, we will be celebrating with a special Thanksgiving Service at 7:00 PM.† This service is in place of our usual Wednesday night service and will include a time of worship and rejoicing in the goodness of the Lord.† Individuals will be given the opportunity to give praise, honor, and glory to the Lord as we celebrate His faithfulness.† "O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people.† Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him; talk ye of all His wondrous works.† Glory ye in His holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord."† Psa. 105:1-3
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!

Paulís Prayer for Godís People
ďFor 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.Ē 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.
