The Church By The Side Of The Road



Calvary Baptist Church, Mt Holly, N.C.
It looks like it belongs on a postcard... was once considered for a Hallmark movie.
I have been visiting here for the last few months...filling in for the regular church musician,while she recovers from surgery to her wrist.
I have been made to feel welcome, and at home.
A good visit!
There are many churches in our area,large and small.
Some of them we call mega churches, with thousands of people attending,
and
with many activities for everyone... and that is good.
There are many small churches also.
 Sitting quietly by the side of the road,
 speaking to the heart of those who come this way.
Saying, "Come On In."
Rev. Fred Helms and wife Lorianne.
Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church.
This minister works a full time job.
 And still attends to the needs of his Church family.
 It might seem that rewards are few for the ones ministering to the small churches.
Perhaps they are, but someday the Lord Himself will reward those who serve Him.
And...
The reward will be great!
  Worth all that went before.
And the Spirit and the Bride say,Come.
And let him that heareth say, Come.
And let him that is athirst come.
And
whosoever will,
 let him take of the water of life freely.

Have a blessed day.

  1. Thank you for sharing this nice church presentation. I prefer the smaller churches. The one I attend is an old church, but so pretty inside. Mostly senior.
