It is hard to believe that Journey Through Bethlehem is just a few short weeks away!  It feels like only yesterday that Pastor stood before us on Vision Night in January and announced this special “Outside These Walls” event.
Our number one goal for Journey Through Bethlehem is to see those who come onto our campus receive the gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ!  We also desire for our community to sense and know the true love of Christ through the wonderful people of Calvary Baptist Church.
If you are like me, talking to someone that you completely do not know is sometimes awkward and uneasy.  However, God desires that we reach everyone with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Here are just a few practical ways you can personally invite someone to Journey Through Bethlehemon December 15-17.

1. Pay for the person behind you in the drive-through line and ask the drive-through
    employee to hand them an invite card, (and then give one to the drive-through employee! J)
2. Go through your neighborhood and deliver cookies or a Christmas snack with an invite card attached.
3. Find someone at work and take them a cup of coffee, pay for their lunch, or take them   their favorite snack. Then give them an invite card.
4. Put out invite cards at an approved area at your work place, business, or restaurant.
5. “Share” the Journey Through Bethlehem event on all your social media outlets --
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
6. Whether you’re out shopping, gassing up your car, eating at a restaurant, or grabbing some coffee, odds are, you’ll interact with someone whom you could invite. Take a quick moment and give them an invite card.
7. Text, call, or email all your friends and family members that live close by and invite them.

Pastor Broyhill often says, “It takes team work to make the dream work.” The Journey Through Bethlehem will only be successful if we work as a team. Let’s do all we can during these next weeks to reach souls for Jesus Christ!

Will you do your part by going Outside These Walls?

Brother Thomas Delp
John 3:30

During March each year we emphasize Calvary Christian School in some very special ways at Calvary Baptist Church. In keeping with that emphasis, in a couple of blogs this month I would like to share with you a few words about Christian education. 
The first word is TRUTH! The apostle John said, “ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”. (Jn 8:32) 
In the church we work hard to lay a solid foundation of TRUTH in the hearts of children & teens because TRUTH does some AMAZING things for them. For example:
  • TRUTH has the power to give children ETERNAL LIFE! Truth is so powerful that it actually means the difference between HEAVEN and HELL!
  • TRUTH has the power to set children FREE! Truth is so powerful that it can set them FREE from Satan’s domination and from their own sinful flesh! 
But what about school? Consider this - if a child is taught the TRUTH for 17,640 hours in school from kindergarten thru 12th grade, that TRUTH can save him from the eternal bondage of hell and from all kinds of bondage in this life. 
But, what do you suppose happens when a child receives those same number of hours of instruction teaching him that God’s truth is a LIE and man’s ways, apart from God, are truth? 
God gives this clear command: “Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.” (Pro. 19:27) God commands us to STOP exposing ourselves to instruction that has the power to cause us to reject truth and embrace error. But children can only obey this command if their parents choose a school that teaches the truth and shields them from error.
If year after year parents allow humanism to be planted in the minds of their children, it should come as no surprise when their adult children “do that which is right in their own eyes”. God is right! We really do reap what we sow! (Gal. 6:7) 
Christian school children learn the truth in every subject every day, and they learn to identify and reject error. 
Moms and dads of Calvary, please ask God for wisdom regarding school for next year. Ask God to give you courage, conviction, and the willingness to make the necessary sacrifices so that your child can be in a school that teaches the TRUTH. Please protect your children from an education that can cause your children to reject the truth.
Special Offer: Any church family new to CCS can register during March for next year and receive an entire month of free tuition for each child (K4-12th grade). 

If you have any questions about Calvary Christian School please visit the school display in the church foyer (pick up a free info packet), or call the school office at 336-983-3743 and ask to speak to Mr. Main.
