    Holy Heartache - God's Lament - Pastor Calvary Callender

    Holy Heartache - God's Lament - Pastor Calvary Callender

    In this message from the first few verses of Isaiah, we learn a vital lesson: even when we lose our way, God's kindness can bring us back and heal us. Isaiah's message was for Israel long ago, but it speaks to us too. It asks us to see where we might have drifted from God and reminds us that God's grace is always ready to welcome us home. This sermon starts our series by showing us the power of admitting our mistakes and letting God's love heal us.

    A Look Back, Pressing Forward - Pastor Calvary Callender

    A Look Back, Pressing Forward - Pastor Calvary Callender

    Every year, I like to take a look back at what we have gone through as a church and then turn our sights towards the future. I think it’s necessary to do that because as we go through something, we aren’t as aware of any changes that might be going on. It is this same principle that I use in my own family. I see my kids every day, so even though they change every day, I don’t necessarily see that change unless I look back and see how far they have come in a year.

    Advent 3 - The Star: A Journey of Joy | Pastor Calvary Callender

    Advent 3 - The Star: A Journey of Joy | Pastor Calvary Callender

    What joy can we find in Advent today? Jesus’ coming, both his birth and return, will be marked full of things that we will certainly find occasion to be joyful about. Everything bad and wrong is made right. The world, and its upside-down ways, are turned right. Perhaps, most importantly, we find redemption. We started by talking about how amazing Christmas is and how unbelievable it is that God would make himself human. Let your knowledge of those facts fill your Christmas with joy this year. When you give gifts, remember that we are the recipients of the greatest gift of all!

    Advent 2 - The Star: A Journey of Love | Pastor Calvary Callender

    Advent 2 - The Star: A Journey of Love | Pastor Calvary Callender

    On a very practical level, this Advent journey of love is about God’s love for us being reflected through us to others. In our own way, we are preparing the way for the return of Jesus, by spreading the good news of the Kingdom through love. In reality, that’s not something we can do—or do for long—on our own effort. It must come from the source of love, and it can. The Living Bible nicely paraphrases Peter’s description of that: “Now you can have real love for everyone because your souls have been cleansed from selfishness and hatred when you trusted Christ to save you; so see to it that you really do love each other warmly, with all your hearts” (1 Peter 1:22, TLB).

    Advent 1 - The Star: A Journey for Hope | Calvary Callender

    Advent 1 - The Star: A Journey for Hope | Calvary Callender

    Hope is about waiting, but that waiting involves a commitment to being present in our journey of obedience. Alert, sober—these are words of expectation and active anticipation. The good news in all this is that wherever you are on your journey, it’s okay—keep following God’s light.



    Sure, we have four weeks of Advent that lead to Christmas, but that is human-created calendar timing, not God’s timing.



    Advent is not about finding all the answers or checking all the boxes. It is about preparing. You just have to show up and be willing to follow God’s lead. Wherever you are, you are not too late. God’s timing is perfect. And He wants to fill your heart with hope for the ultimate healing and life in His Son.

    That is a reason for hope that will fuel your journey through Advent and far beyond.

    Thanksgiving and Repentance | Pastor Calvary Callender

    Thanksgiving and Repentance | Pastor Calvary Callender

    True thanksgiving flows from a heart that has repented and turned towards God. Our thankfulness is so much richer when we have repented and realize the depth of Jesus’ salvation.
