    May 10, 2021

    Hi Calvary Family,


    What a blessing it was to continue in our sermon series yesterday! This was our second sermons on our new series, Fighting for the Family!


    This week our sermon was on Home: The Battlefront. We looked at Deuteronomy 22 as we discovered the importance of building the four walls of the home. Yesterday we discussed the first two walls: authority and love. Here were our points:

    • Authority must be established
    • Charity (love) must be expressed

    Authority is important in the home to ensure healthy relationships. Love is to be spoken and sensed. Each member of the family should hear that they are loved and sense that they are loved. Love is also to be shown in acts and words. I pray this week we will all find ways to reach out to our family members and show love!


    I want to remind you that starting in the summer we will be having Summer Nights at Calvary! These will take place on Sunday evenings at 5 pm with a meal together and then Bible study. We will not be having Wednesday Night Bible Study together but will come together on Sunday Evenings.


    I am praying for you this week!


    In Christ,

    Kenny Grant

    Senior Pastor

        Calvary Kids Summer Schedule

        Hello Calvary Family,


        Summer is fast approaching and Calvary Kids has some awesome events planned for you to get involved with!


        Family Fourth Friday

        This will be the last Family Fourth before Summer! So come on Friday, May 28 at 6:00pm for a movie and theater-style dinner. Register here!


        Backyard Bible Clubs

        While the pandemic has made it difficult to plan and execute large-scale events like VBS, there are many great options for reaching the children of Savannah for Christ. Backyard Bible Clubs are a great way to reach the children and parents of your neighborhood with the message of the gospel. This 5-day, 90 minute per day program will lead kids through God's plan of salvation as if it were a treasure hunt with the Bible as their map.


        If you would like to open your home to host a Backyard Bible Club, you can register here. We provide you with a kit, a plan, and training and you provide the space and make invitations.


        CentriKid Camp

        CentriKid is an overnight camp for 2nd–5th graders (completed grades) to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ! Camps are staffed by college and seminary students who can’t wait to hang out with your kids and love to share Christ through every aspect of camp! At CentriKid, we promise to free your hands of all the little distractions associated with kids ministry. For one week out of the year, hand us the clipboard. We’ll handle lunch, plan Bible Study, set up Recreation, organize leaders, and lead Worship sessions.


        A child’s spiritual life can be greatly impacted by their home environment, church involvement, and unique experiences like camp. CentriKid is committed to providing a place for kids to get away—even for a little while—to hear loud and clear that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. Safety in our programming, within relationships, and on campus are top priorities. We believe powerful things can happen when kids feel safe to be a kid!


        Calvary Kids will be headed to Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina from July 9-11, 2021. If you are interested in sending your child, register online, fill out the forms and have them notarized, and get your payment to Pastor Alex before June 1st.


        If you would like further information about any of these events, don't hesitate to reach out to Pastor Alex at ateesdale@cbtsavannah.org.


        We can't wait to see you this summer for all the fun!


        Pastor Alex Teesdale

          Hi Calvary Family,


          Happy Monday!


          What a blessing yesterday was as we got to celebrate Mother's Day! Mom's are such a unique part of the family unit and they deserve all the love and praise we can offer!


          We also started our new series on Fighting for the Family with our first sermon on The Mission Mom: 1 Samuel 1:1-27. We looked together at the story of Hannah and her love for her son Samuel. We discovered 5 important moves Hannah made in motherhood.

          1. Her Prayer for Motherhood (1:10)
          2. Her Promise for Motherhood (1:11)
          3. Her Preparation for Motherhood (1:18)
          4. Her Potential in Motherhood (1:27)
          5. Her Praise in Motherhood (2:1-10)

          Motherhood is missional! You never know what God has planned for your child. And yet, as Hannah shows us in her praise in 1 Samuel 2:1-10, we need to love God more than our children. When we see that as the truth, we see our children as gifts and we bless the Giver, not the gift.


          As we continue in our series on the family, we want to use this time to really support our youth! They are currently raising money for youth camp this summer! Stop by the Welcome Center after service on Sunday and grab an envelope to give towards youth camp! We want every youth to be able to go!


          In Christ,

              Hi Calvary Family,


              I hope you all had a chance to join us this Sunday as we finished up our series on It's Easter... so, what? We have been looking together at the impact of the Easter message in that it inaugurates the newness of life we have in Christ.


              In our last sermon in this series, we looked at Paul's illustration in Romans 7 that the old marriage has been dissolved and brought about a new love. We discussed four points from this sermon:

              1. The Axiom (Romans 7:1)
              2. The Analogy (Romans 7:2-3)
              3. The Application (Romans 7:4-5)
              4. The Affirmation (Romans 7:6)

              In the new life, we do things out of love, not from the law. The letter kills, but the Spirit always gives life. We now live in love and pursue holiness with help of the Spirit.


              I hope and pray that you can live in the newness of life and reflect the new life you have been given. I want to encourage you to share this new life in fellowship with others! One way you can do that is by fellowshipping with our moms. We will have a Mother's Day Brunch on May 8th from 10:00 am - 11:30 am in the Dining Hall (Cafeteria). All moms are invited! We hope this will be a refreshing time for Moms as they fellowship with one another! Click here to register!


              I pray that you reflect the love of God with week with others!
