oday’s workers and students face much adversity. Much of that adversity starts in high school with verbal forms of bullying. Calvary has always had a no tolerance policy against any form of mean or inappropriate name calling with the students. God says to be imitators of Him;and if we are not using kind, decent words on each other, then how do we praise God?
Basketball season is finally here! Excitement among the student body is high, and the players’ hopes and ambitions are even higher. Due to the unpredictable weather of November and December, coaches and players didn’t get as much time in actually practicing as they would have liked. But with the new year, clearer skies have allowed the girls’ and boys’ teams to practice more, getting them fully prepared for the upcoming season.
Gentleness. We, with our sinful nature, often lean towards being harsh, whether verbally or physically. Maybe someone says something mean, and we want to slap their arm and tell them to leave us alone. Of course, God tells us to show gentleness and kindness. Proverbs 15:1 says, “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” We need to learn to be soft spoken and gentle in every way possible. To be more like Him, we must have a gentle spirit.
Have you ever heard of “Fruit of the Spirit?” 2018-2019’s school year here at Calvary is going through this series from Galatians 5:22-23.

God literally gives us nine different spiritual characteristics that He wants us to work on in our lifetime.
The Bible Study held during lunch on Thursdays recently delved into the book, The 5 Love Languages, written by Dr. Gary Chapman. This book walks the reader through the five love languages that Dr. Chapman describes: physical touch, quality time, acts of service, receiving gifts, and words of affirmation. But why should we take the time to study the love languages?

It’s often hard to be surrounded by unsaved people almost every day while at work or even at a public school.
Every year, Calvary Christian School’s students perform a Christmas program in the church auditorium. This year, the dates and times for the programs are December 9 at 6:00 PM and December 11 at 7:00 PM. The elementary is excited to be singing “A Simple Kind of Christmas,” “Twelve Days Till Christmas,” and “I Can’t Wait” while the high school and junior high choir are singing “Ding Dong! Merrily on High,” “Let the Christ Child In,” and “Who Is the Lamb.”
Here at Calvary Baptist Church, we have an AWANA club. Nearly every Wednesday night during the school year, you can expect to see children ages four through 12 participating in games, Bible memory, and Bible lessons. From 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., God allows us to be a part of what He uses to work in the children’s lives. Our goal is to “reach kids, equip leaders and change the world for God" every single Wednesday night.
Calvary Baptist Church has been planning and saving to make some updates to the church building. The church has been looking forward to repainting the exterior of the church, replacing some rotting wooden support beams, replacing the carpeting in the auditorium, and so much more. Although these improvements were much needed, the church first had to save enough money to cover the cost.
