Summer Sunday School

June - July 2020

Jonah (7/26/20)

3 Types of Christians the World Needs to Take Their Place • July 26, 2020 • Pastor Matthew Ford

Wake up! The world needs you. It’s time to take your place. Christians everywhere are ignoring God’s call on their lives. Unfortunately, when Christians sleepwalk through life, it leads to destruction for them and those around them. On Sunday, July 26, 2020, Pastor Matt Ford teaches from the book of Jonah, and encourages Three Types of Christians to Take Their Place in the World.

Daniel: Lessons From The Lion’s Den (7/19/20)

Two Realities of Uncertain Times • July 19, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

“Hindsight may be 20/20,” but when facing uncertainty, you are blind. We often forget that the heroes in the Bible did not know the outcomes of their stories. When facing their trials, they could not see that God was working miraculously behind the scenes. They only knew that the consequences were life or death, but their calling to faithfulness was greater. On Sunday, July 19, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan teaches from the book of Daniel to give us Lessons from the Lion’s Den.

David & Goliath (7/12/20)

Three Questions Champions Ask • July 12, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

For all of us, at some point in our lives, we will face something bigger than we are, and what we do will either set us up for victory or defeat. Our giants come in all shapes and sizes. Whether it’s unforeseen circumstances and insurmountable odds with your health, home, job, mental health, or the headlines, you can be a champion. On Sunday, July 12, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan recounts the story of David and Goliath and gives us Three Questions Champions Ask.

Moses (7/5/20)

The Fruit of Frustration • July 5, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

When life doesn’t go according to plan, politics are corrupt, and society unjust… When nothing seems to go right, and the world seems wrong, what do you do when frustrations pile up? Do you get angry and yell? Do you internalize and shut down? On Sunday, July 5, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan speaks on the Fruit of Frustration and the story of Moses and the Israelites.

Psalm 23 (6/28/20)

A Psalm of Calm in Time of Crises • June 28, 2020 • Pastor Doug Clay

As children, we memorize and recite it as a prayer. As adults, we decorate our walls with its words. Psalm 23 is one of the most recognized and cherished passages of the Bible. But it’s more than a comforting allegory. It holds God’s promises for you! On Sunday, June 28, 2020, Calvary Church welcomes back former pastor and the Assemblies of God General Superintendent, Pastor Doug Clay, as he speaks on the Psalm of Calm for Times of Crisis.

Abraham (6/21/20)

Faith says, I will! • June 21, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

During these tumultuous times, the world needs more people of faith than people of religion. People of faith are people of action not people of passive belief. When God calls them to be a blessing to those around them, they obey. On Sunday, June 21, Pastor Chad Gilligan takes a look at the life of Abraham, one of the fathers of faith, and reminds us that “Faith says, I will!”

Noah (6/14/20)

Three Lessons from the Life of Noah • June 14, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

When facing modern concerns like racism, protests, layoffs, lockdown, and a pandemic, a man from thousands of years ago, who built a boat to save animals, seems hardly relevant. But we forget this was also a man who struggled in times of turmoil and uncertainty, faced social unrest and still stood for righteousness, and when called to obedience, followed wholeheartedly. On Sunday, June 14, 2020, Pastor Chad continues his sermon series, Summer Sunday School, and shows us that the lessons of Noah still hold true for today.

Adam and Eve (6/7/20)

June 7, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

Join Calvary this Summer as we revisit classic Bible stories using a childhood favorite, the flannelgraph. We will discover the simple stories that entertained us as children still hold truths for us today and life-lessons for the whole family. On Sunday, June 7, 2020, Pastor Chad begins his new sermon series, Summer Sunday School, with the story of Adam and Eve.
