Current Sermon Series

Join us this Sunday, October 2, at 10:30 AM, for Pastor Nate’s new sermon
series on Revelation 1-3, Dear Church: Letters for the Battlefield.

Dear Church: Letters for the BattlefieldFall 2022
Imagine waking up each morning to the sounds of war. Bombs dropping. Bullets flying. Heart filled with fear. Some don’t have to imagine. Some have lived in the shadow of the battlefield, fighting an enemy both seen and unseen, wondering daily what lurks in the darkness. Imagine one day, in the fog of the battle, a messenger comes with a letter from the nation’s leader – “Keep fighting, the war is already won!”

Revelation 1-3 is a series of letters, delivered by John, written by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, sent to seven churches in Asia, fighting a spiritual battle with an unseen enemy, played out on the pages of history. Jesus’ letters for the battlefield sent a message as relevant today as 2,000 years ago – “Keep fighting, the war is already won!”

Join us at Calvary this fall, as we hear these letters of Jesus in Revelation 1-3, sent to the church that He loves, as He reveals to us the enemy we face and the victory He has already won for us, giving us hope for today and forever.

To help you prepare, the scripture for Sunday will be:

Revelation 2:8-11 (ESV)

“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life.

“‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’
