2017 Recap: Counting Blessings!

Looking back at 2017 a few hours before the we usher in 2018, we want to pause to consider all that God has done in our church this year. 2017 has been an exciting year for us in many ways!

Multiple groups of volunteers from the congregation really came together to serve, improving things at our church in numerous ways. It’s so refreshing to see what God has accomplished for us through His people this year.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of what we did in 2017, but looking back at the Calvary News site ( reminds us of some of the highlights. In no particular order:

  1. Most importantly, lots of new believers and new members!
  2. New church name: Calvary Community Church !
  3. New way of supporting Kingdom Workers: Our first complete year of our Faith Promise Giving program!
  4. New church admins!
  5. New church apparel!
  6. New deacons!
  7. New deacon candidate!
  8. New online giving options!
  9. New church signs!
  10. Numerous new sound system upgrades, including new speakers and mixer!
  11. New upgraded look for the church bulletins!
  12. Sanctuary upgrades: New ceiling tiles and lighting!
  13. New South Brunswick-Area Home Group!
  14. New Tradition? The 2017 Christmas party!

… a long list, and I’m sure we even missed a few things!

Please join us in thanking the Lord for what he’s done for us. Here’s to 2018! Cheers!
