    Hi Calvary Family,


    What a blessing it was to celebrate our Risen Savior with you all on Sunday! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, celebrated with friends and family!


    On Sunday we reflected on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection brings newness. Without the resurrection, we stuck in our old selves, old lives, and the same old sin. But when Jesus was raised from the dead, he inaugurated a new life! We looked at several passages that reflect this newness.

    • 2 Corinthians 5:17 - New Creation
    • Psalm 40:3 - New Song
    • Romans 6:1-4 - New Life
    • Galatians 5:19-29 - New Fragrance of Life

    Our lives should be reflecting this new life we have. We are a witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ which solidified our salvation; granting us to live as new creations.


    If you are living in the new life of Christ but have not yet joined a Calvary in membership, let me invite you to join us in Members Class! It's a two-part class that begins this Sunday, April 11th with part 1 and finishes April 18th with part 2. This class walks you through membership at Calvary and how to serve the church. For more information and to sign up, head here: https://cbtsavannah.org/membership


    My prayer for you this week is that you live out the testimony of Christ's resurrection by living as a new creation in Him!

    Senior Pastor

      Hi Calvary Family,


      It's Easter Week! What a blessing it is to celebrate our risen Savior! At the bottom of this email, you will see a reading plan for Holy Week. I want to encourage you to reflect this week on the importance of having a risen Jesus.


      Yesterday, Pastor Chris walked us through Ephesians 4:1-16. It was our final sermon in our We Share Life series in which we discussed Equipping the Saints. Pastor Chris challenged us with this question: What is my role in the church? Through our reading of Ephesians, we discovered that we all have a place in the church and it is our calling to fulfill that role. If you are looking for a place to serve, head to cbtsavannah.org/serve to find where God is calling you!


      I hope that one way God is calling you is to invite someone to our Good Friday and Easter services! We will not have Wednesday Night Bible Study this week as our Good Friday service is this Friday at 6:00 pm. Our Easter service is this Sunday at 10:15 am and it will be a family service, in which children 4yrs old and older will be in service with us. We will have activity packets available to keep your kids engaged! Invite your friends and family to join us; we can't wait to see you there!


      Lastly, if you are interested in receiving the COVID vaccine, we will have some available at the church. The deadline to sign up is today! Call the church at 912-351-2288 to reserve a spot.


      We can't wait to celebrate Holy Week with you! I am eager to worship with you and am praying for you this week!

          Hi Calvary Family,


          Happy Monday!


          I hope you had a blessed Sunday! It was a joy to continue with you in our Share series as we looked together at Galatians 6:1-2 on what it means to Assist the Needy and Restore the Fallen.


          All around us as we move about our lives are those stuck in immediate needs. We talked yesterday about the story of the Good Samaritan and how the man who was attacked had needs that immediately needed to be addressed. It is our calling as believers to "bear one another's burdens" (Gal. 6:2) as we share life together. My call to you today is that as you go in life you find ways to meet the immediate needs of others so that you can help them meet their ultimate need for Christ.


          It is that ultimate need for Christ that we ought to be seeking ways to restore the fallen. Galatians 6:1 calls us to restore anyone who is caught up in spiritual transgression. Yesterday we heard the testimony of Sharon Ingram. I ask that you think about that testimony and consider whether or not you could give a testimony such as that and if you could hear such a testimony.


          I challenge you this week to be praying and seeking ways to meet the immediate needs of others while also meeting their ultimate need for Christ.


          One way to meet this goal is to invite families to our Eggstravaganza this Sunday, March 28th! We will have a wonderful time together at our annual egg hunt and of course, a salvation message will be preached for anyone who needs restoring. You can register for our Eggstravaganza here: cbtsavannah.org/easter


          I am praying for you this week and can't wait to worship with you again soon!

            Hi Calvary Family,


            It was such a wonderful blessing to worship with you all yesterday! I could truly feel the presence of the Lord! It was great to be continuing together our series on Sharing Life.


            Yesterday, Pastor Chris lead us in what it means to Honor the Savior. We got an in-depth look into Philippians 1:12-30. We explored together what it means to live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel. Chris showed us four moments in Philippians that help us see how to live worthy of the gospel by standing firm in:

            1. One spirit
            2. One mind
            3. One body
            4. Not fearing in any way

            I hope we can all live our lives worthy of the gospel. Let us go forth this week using Philippians 1 as means of honoring the Savior.


            One practical way we can honor the Savior is by giving to missions. We are currently in the middle of our Annie Armstrong NAMB mission fund. Our goal is $7,500. Pray this week about how God is calling you to give!


            I am praying for you this week!

              Hi Calvary Family,


              What an absolute blessing it was to have Missionary David Creswell with us yesterday! He brought us a great Word, and we should consider together his challenge to us:


              If Calvary was removed from Savannah, would our community notice?


              This is an important question and one we all need to pray about. Mr. Creswell continued his sermon by offering us a look into God's Heart for the Nations. Together we explored Exodus 12 and he offered these helpful insights:

              • God is unpredictable in His methods of drawing the nation to himself.
              • God is unrelenting in his mission.

              God calls us to care for our neighbors, all of them. Mr. Creswell reminded us of who in scripture were refuges: David, Jacob, Moses, and even Jesus himself. We ought to forget how the world responds to immigrants and refugees and look to scripture. Mr. Creswell challenged us to respond this way: Pray, Participate, and Provide.


              I hope and pray each of us will earnestly and prayerfully consider how we can make a difference for the gospel in the lives of immigrants and refugees. I will say, one powerful way we can participate and provide is by giving to our Annie Armstrong Mission Offering. 100% of all the money given to this offering goes into the hands of missionaries like David Creswell, who do incredible work for the gospel.


              I am praying for you this week! I hope you will join me in praying for how we, as CBT in Savannah, can make difference in the lives of those who need refuge!

                Hi Calvary Family,


                It's hard to believe that we have made it to March! Spring is upon us! We earnestly pray that this March is nothing like last March but that it is a time of growing and sprouting as creation grows alongside us.


                I hope yesterday's message encourages you to grow in sharing life together. What a blessing it was to dive into John 15 as we discovered the true marks of sharing life together. Let me remind you of what we learned:

                1. We Share a Living Fellowship (John 15:1-3)
                2. We Share in a Joyful Fellowship (John 15:4)
                3. We Share in an Honest Fellowship (John 15:5-10)

                These three truths set the foundation of what it means for us at Calvary to share life together! As we move forward in our series on sharing life together, remember these foundations.


                As we grow into a fuller life shared together, I want to encourage you to join us for Annie Armstrong Week of Prayer. We will have missionary David Creswell speaking on March 7th, a prayer service on March 8th in the chapel at 10:30 am, and start working towards our goal of $7,500, which will go 100% towards missionaries in the North American Mission Board. Please be in prayer for this week as we prepare our hearts for missions this Easter Season.


                I pray each of you joins us in our journey of learning what it means for us to share life together!


                Kenny Grant

                Senior Pastor


                P.S. Be in prayer for how God is calling you to give to our Annie Armstrong goal this year!
