Newsworthy
Thank You!
    March 3, 2013 was wonderful in every way, and I want to express my gratitude  to Calvary Church for honoring me and my family in such a way.  Calvary has always been extraordinary and March 3 exemplified that “specialness”. As I said that morning, “Thank you for letting me walk with you these many years”.
