Dear Gold River Calvary Chapel Family,
As every day goes by and the world continues to try and cope with this pandemic, I am ever more grateful that I can turn to the Lord Jesus for all that I need. I pray that is your way as well.
Scripture says in Hebrews 4:14
14 So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe.
We can rest in Him and trust in Him, and cast all our concerns and worries on Him. The Apostle Paul says in Romans 8:37 in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
In our study this week in Genesis we come to this amazing passage where the God of the universe comes to Abraham and for the first time in scripture He says: … “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless.” El Shaddai, God Almighty is our God too! Praise Him!
This encounter with God Almighty is a huge turning point in Abraham’s life because he finally accepts that God’s yes means yes and all His promises will be fulfilled. Our God does not leave things unfinished. We can trust Him and rest in Him completely.
I am looking forward to sharing God’s great and holy Word with you this Sunday, on line. Check out our Facebook page or our website to join your brothers and sisters in Christ at 10 a.m.
Blessings and love to you all in the name of Jesus,

Greetings Gold River Calvary Chapel Family,
As we all bear up under this pandemic, we continue to pray for you all.
Some of you have asked when we will be returning to our study in Genesis. I thought we would be there by now, but the Lord continues to direct me to different scriptures. But I think, next week we will be returning to Genesis.
This Sunday, we will be studying a passage of scripture that should be familiar to most of you, if not all. It’s the famous story of Jesus walking on water. But as we look at it in the context of living in a pandemic, I think we’ll see the story a little differently.
In Mark 6:47-48
47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them,
This is an amazing moment in the lives of the disciples as they struggle desperately to stay alive in a storm.
And many of us are also struggling in this storm that is happening all over this world right now.
I am very excited to share this great story of how our Lord Jesus works in us and for us in storms.
Sunday at 10 a.m. on Gold River Calvary Chapel Facebook.
Blessings and love to you all in the name of Jesus.
