Love and Ministry

sick in bed

Being sick is no fun

I’ve been sick as a dog and my family at Calvary Temple was there to love me and hold me up in prayer when i needed their love and ministry the most.

I’ve been a member of Calvary Temple Church in Sterling VA for over 25 years now.  We are passionate about reaching the lost and encouraging the Believers in our community.  We have many Events throughout the year to spread the Gospel. I hope you find the following story to be a blessing.

This is my first post in over a month because i have been extremely sick.  I have an autoimmune disease and that comes with a variety of issues.  One of them being frequent illnesses.  For the past three weeks, I’ve been laid out with my second case of bronchitis in less than a year.  I can usually tell that i have bronchitis, as opposed to a cold, because when i cough it sounds like a dog barking.  Nice.

sick dog

Anyway, this case of bronchitis came with a bunch of unpleasant friends.  Because of the autoimmune disease, I’ve turned into that person who gets every rare side effect listed on the drug sheet.  After several nights of not sleeping and searing pain in my head and ribs, i bought some Robitussin DM because bless God I’m gonna sleep tonight if its the last thing i do.  Apparently, a rare but not uncommon side effect of Robitussin is panic attacks and anxiety.  I can’t even describe the crippling fear and claustrophobia that came over me after taking one dose.  I thought i was losing my mind.  I immediately had my husband pray for me, then texted a few of my closest friends to pray also.  The panic hung on.  All day.  In a very desperate move, I requested the church congregation pray for me at the service that night. About the time Pastor Scott prayed i began to feel more at peace.  The panic and anxiety hung on for three days but it was much less severe than before the church prayed.  The prayers of my brothers and sisters got me through and  I could feel them lifting me up.

Many of them called and emailed both me and my husband to check on me.  One of my friends brought over some Benadryl the doctor at the urgent care had prescribed.  That night i had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics and was rushed to the emergency room covered in welts with my tongue swollen up.

Emergency Room

Again, I texted my friends to pray for me.  I had my friend’s Benadryl in my purse and took one on the way to the hospital.  As we pulled up to the emergency room my husband dropped me off and yelled “tell ’em you’re shot!”  If you’re a fan of Brian Regan, you see the humor there.  Between the prayers of my friends and the medication my friend had brought that afternoon, the allergic reaction started to subside before the emergency room doctor could dose me with four new prescriptions.

In three weeks I have had eleven different medications and five severe reactions.  I’m believing for complete healing from the autoimmune disease.  Nothing is too difficult for our God.  Everything we face is a small thing to Him.   But its times like this when we are at our weakest that we get a glimpse into the heart of God and His purposes to knit us together into the body of Christ.  He never intended for any of us to walk out our salvation on our own.  We are meant to be part of a family.  I am very grateful for the one He has given me.

The Last Safe Place to go Caroling Calvary Temple Sterling VA Outreach

Caroling Calvary Temple Sterling VA Outreach

Caroling Calvary Temple Sterling VA Outreach

I can only remember caroling a couple of times in my life, and both times were awkward exchanges of out-of-tune butchery of popular Christmas Songs.  I think we’ve all seen enough American Idol to realize that there can be a huge gulf between perceived singing ability and actual singing ability.  By the end of the night, all songs were abandoned except for Jingle Bells, and someone’s little brother tried to sneak in the Batman Smells version.

I’ve been a member of Calvary Temple Church in Sterling VA for over 25 years now.  We are passionate about reaching the lost and encouraging the Believers in our community.  We have many Events throughout the year to spread the Gospel. I hope you find the following story to be a blessing.

Caroling always sounded like a good idea until you got out there and discovered:

 It was much colder than you expected and singing while your teeth are chattering is not a popular vocal medium.

 You don’t actually know all the words to the songs and have to hmmmrmmmher during the tricky parts.

 Your friends can’t carry a tune any better than you can so forget relying on Fred to stick to just one key.

 People tend to think it’s weird that you are standing on their lawn singing. You’re looking at them singing hmmmmrmmmmher and they’re watching you wondering if this is a new cult that just joined the neighborhood.

 You shouldn’t launch into the Twelve Days of Christmas unless you know for sure what all the presents are or your audience has a lot of patience to listen to fifteen minutes of “9 Ducks a Quacking” and “11 Guys a Grilling”.

There is still one safe place where people appreciate the festiveness of Caroling:  The Senior Homes.  I’ve shared with you in the past about the Calvary Temple outreach to the area nursing homes.  For Christmas, our volunteers go all out to spread the love of Jesus with some Christmas Cheer.  Even our Children get involved as they perform parts of their Christmas Pageant for residents of the Sunrise Nursing Home in Sterling, VA.

Caroling with those who could not join the party.

Last month, teams from the church visited the two facilities: Manor Care in Fairfax, VA, and Tall Oaks in Reston, VA.  The mission was to go room to room caroling before having a Group Sing-Along Christmas Party for the residents.  The night they visited Manor Care, the residence was having their annual Christmas Dinner.  As it was, many of the resident’s family members were visiting and were able to join the seniors for the party. The residents loved singing the carols and many of them knew the words by memory.  They probably would have known “7 Sheep a Shearing” is wrong.

After the singing, the teams shared a powerful message about the real meaning of Christmas and the hope we have in Jesus.  We are living in difficult times.  Things we never thought we would see happen are taking place right before our eyes. The Jesus who came to take our sins upon Himself so we could be reconciled to God is coming back for His church very soon.

Afterwards, there was a time of refreshments and fellowship with the residents, many of whom do not usually attend the Bible Studies but came out for the special event.  Then there was a time of sharing one-on-one with the seniors, encouraging them in the Word and praying with them.

What an honor to spend time with these special people at this most special time of the year.  Sharing the Love of Jesus and spreading the Gospel is the truest meaning of what Christmas is all about.

Calvary Temple Kids at the Sunrise Nursing Home

Last week we had a sneak preview of the Kid’s practicing for their outreach debut.  Well, the daily preparations have been paying off because they did a wonderful job performing for the seniors of the Sunrise Nursing Home this week.  It was standing room only in the front parlor as the residents packed in to watch the show.

The kids performed several of their Christmas Pageant songs much to the delight of the audience.

Kids at Nursing home

The audience loved them.

The especially loved watching these two ham it up for this number:

After the musical portion of the morning, the kids greeted the seniors one-on-one and handed out tracts and cupcakes.

They told the seniors that Jesus is the true meaning of Christmas.

The kids did a great job of reaching out to the residents and showing the love of God.  And as you can see, the residents were very receptive to the children’s visit.

Calvary Temple also does a Bible Study in the Sunrise Nursing Home on Thursday Nights.  If you or your loved ones are in the facility, you are more than welcome to join us.

And Now … the Surprise!

After the Nursing Home Outreach, the Elementary kids were joined by the High-Schoolers at the Dulles Town Center Mall in Sterling, VA and performed a Christmas Flash Mob.  It’s hard to see just how many of them were there, but they are spread out over a large portion of the food court.  It was a very exciting end to a successful day of joining the kids on their first Christmas Outreach.
