CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH REGATHERING PLAN

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This past Monday the Government of Ontario announced that places of worship could reopen at 30% of seating capacity, while following some rules and guidelines of social distancing and health safety. There is great excitement and joy in returning, but we also want to be good stewards as well. Our desire is to use the permission we have been granted while at the same time respecting the best counsel of the provincial health officials.

Please read the guidelines carefully so that you and your family are prepared to return for corporate worship on June 21@ 9:25am. The side door will be open at 9:15am. The double doors will be our exit only following the Service, with the exception for those who need wheelchair access)

With love,
Pastor Mike


To Him be the glory!



 


How Do We Know If We Love Christ? 
By J C Ryle


1.If we love a person, we like to think about him. We do not need to be reminded of him. We do not forget his name or his appearance or his character or his opinions or his tastes or his position or his occupation... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

2.If we love a person, we like to hear about him. We find a pleasure in listening to those who speak of him. We feel an interest in any report which others make of him... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

3.If we love a person, we like to read about him. What intense pleasure a letter from an absent husband gives to a wife, or a letter from an absent son to his mother... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

4.If we love a person, we like to please him. We are glad to consult his tastes and opinions, to act upon his advice and do the things which he approves... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

5.If we love a person, we like his friends. We are favorably inclined to them, even before we know them. We are drawn to them by the common tie of common love to one and the same person... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

6.If we love a person, we are jealous about his name and honor. We do not like to hear him spoken against, without speaking up for him and defending him... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

7.If we love a person, we like to talk to him. We tell him all our thoughts, and pour out all our heart to him. We find no difficulty in discovering subjects of conversation... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!

 

8.Finally, if we love a person, we like to be always with him. Thinking and hearing and reading and occasionally talking are all well in their way. But when we really love people we want something more... Well, it is just so between the true Christian and Christ!




Our ultimate desire at Calvary Baptist Church is first and foremost to bring glory and praise to the Sovereign LORD [Father, Son, & Holy Spirit] and to raise up mature believers so that we can fulfill the Great Commission. We will seek to achieve this by following the guidelines that God has put in place for prayer, worship, communion, Christian fellowship, Bible Study, and most of all the expository teaching of God’s Word.  We desire to provide the proper teaching of God’s Word so that fellow believers can grow together and edify one another with love and compassion.  

Please come join us,
as we look into how God has composed a unique story
for each of our lives.

CBC is a place to call home as we ......
Magnify the Lord, Mature the Believers, 
Make prayer a priority, Meet the lost with Christ
