Covid-19 Church News Letter
“Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
Dear Calvary Community members:
These long days of separation have been difficult for all of us, and that includes those to whom you look for pastoral leadership at Calvary. We too are hurting and yet we have become convinced that God is actually using these days to prepare our hearts for something greater in the future.
In the meantime, be assured that we are deeply grateful for your support throughout this trying time, even as we ask you now to join us in prayer for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit when at last, we are able to gather again. God is faithful and we belong to Him, so be expecting the miraculous, including many to come to Christ as a result.
We do hope to move into stage four of Illinois’ plan for reopening in July and resume meeting in compliance with the published guidelines, but God’s timing, not ours, is perfect. In patient preparation for that glorious day then, please plan to continue to participate with us online each Sunday at 10:30 AM (www.calvarymemorialchurch.com) as the Calvary Praise Band leads us in worship and Pastor Ed preaches on the theme of GENEROSITY (Time-Talent-Treasure). As you do, we invite you to unite by faith with your pastors in . . .
Trusting God for genuine revival,
Pastor David Petty (815-985-9728)
Pastor Ed Tinsley (815-540-4824)
Pastor Dave Symonds (815-668-3815)
