Today our congregation has a hundred active households. Where a Quaker mustard field once stood, this sanctuary, with its beautiful stained glass windows and woodwork, houses worship services that are both traditional and contemporary, and we continue to be inspired by intelligent preaching and a strong music program. Flowing out from this place, we continue to meet the needs of those in the community around us with programs such as preparing meals for women and children living in a local shelter. Fulfilling the dreams of our founders, we continue to reach out to support connectional and community programs that share the message of hope and new life, and men and women from Calvary have traveled all across the world to share that message in person.
And now if we will listen, in the still of this sanctuary we can hear that voice still calling from Bethlehem and beyond the Jordan. The best is yet to come, if we will answer. Our golden age is today, where our past connects to our future, and there will never be another time like it.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward all.
