I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER OF Calvary Temple Church in Sterling VA FOR OVER 25 YEARS. 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 TO BE A BLESSING.
We were blessed with a beautiful spring day for our Car and Motorcycle show on April 14, 2018! Over 500 visitors attended, and 270 participants brought the show to life with a wide variety of colorful cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
If you missed it, feel free to check out our You Tube highlights.
Many volunteers from our church provided free water, food, and children’s activities. One attendee asked why we gave away so much for free. The response? “Because we want to share the Gospel.” The man replied, “And you guys do that really well too!”
“37 Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.'” (Matthew 9:36-37, ESV) Bible Gateway
Third Day Power Ministries
Perhaps the most exciting activity was a special appearance from Third Day Power ministries, by Ray and Jannet Clark. Jannet is one of the strongest women in the world, able to bench press 345 pounds! Ray and Jannet travel, performing feats of strength and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Below, Jannet asked one of our strongest young men, Stephen Spriggs, to tear a phone book in half. Though unsuccessful, he had fun.
Next, Jannet performed the same feat, this time successfully.
Her husband, Ray Clark, broke a wooden bat over his thigh and then turned it into a cross.
The couple then shared their testimonies and a powerful gospel message. One Muslim attendee said the message changed his life, and he would never be the same.
“And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” (John 12:32, ESV) Bible Gateway
Rev Your Rumble
This was a loud event! The “Rev Your Rumble” contest measured the contestants’ decibels when their engines were revved. The cars went individually, revving their engines which were measured by a decibel meter. The winner was chosen by the crowd’s applause.
Some car owners’s displays were fun and creative. I liked the mini car, the road runner, and the coyote duster.
