We extend a warm welcome to all to join us Sunday, September 24 for education, worship and a mission lunch to support the Crop Walk immediately following the service.
Sunday’s worship service at the 11:00 a.m. begins a new sermon series, Time, which explores the difference been Chronos Time and Kairos Time.
Chronos time is empty time, a void to be filled. Idle, humdrum are words that describe chronos time. Kairos time is different. It is those significant, meaningful moments or seasons that stay with you for a lifetime. Kairos is vital time, critical time, ripe time, opportune time. We all live in a chronos world, but God’s kairos kingdom is unfolding around us. We just need to see it and not miss it – it cannot be planned or forced. So where do we find or experience kairos moments?
Rev. David J. Hanna begins the series with the sermon Time: What’s Your Excuse?.
People were afraid of the kairos moments, the new insights of Jesus, which changed a culture’s paradigm and eventually, the world’s paradigm. They didn’t want their predictable, dull chronos world to be disturbed. So they silenced Jesus. And more often than not we continue to silence him and stifle his way.
Mission Lunch – 12:00 p.m.
Following the service, please join us for our annual CROP Hunger Walk Mission Lunch. We will follow a “CROP” menu theme with beef or meatless vegetable soup, fresh bread, local apples and choice of bar cookies. You do not need to sign up to attend. All monetary donations will go toward Calvary’s CROP Hunger Walk collection.
