Phil. 3:13-14: Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet, but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ.
[06/23/14] Calvary Singles Retreat - July 25-27 at El Porvenir Camp in Las Vegas, NM. Save the date!
Happy Friday Singles! As usual, we'll be meeting at the Cove at 7pm. Come and listen to a message by our beloved John Chan! And of course we'd love to fellowship with you further afterwards at a restaurant to be chosen later tonight.
Do you understand the implications in Genesis 2:18?
And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
startmarriageright.com Drawing from Genesis 2:18-25, Dillow summarizes God?s prompting: As I come alongside you as your Helper, I ask you to come alongside your husband?? Now my role as wife had greater meaning.
Tonight Calvary's dance ministry is performing at Calvary. For those of us who are not attending the performance, we will be meeting at Four Joys Chinese at 6:00 PM (6122 4th St. NW). Afterwards we will walk around the corner to Lucky 66 Bowling (6132 4th St. NW). Group rate is $9.99 each which includes shoe rental and two hours of bowling. Bowling will begin around 7:30 PM. You are invited to come to one or both activities. Be sure to mention you are with Calvary Singles so you get the group rate for bowling!
[04/25/14] Good morning Singles! Hope you're in the mood for a movie because tonight we're meeting at Golden Corral on San Mateo at 6:00 pm and then decide on a dollar movie and to go to. Feel free to come for just a soda or coffee at Golden Corral if you don't want to eat there. We'd love to see you all tonight!
Good morning Singles and happy Good Friday! Speaking of good, it's time again for good fellowship, good fun, and good food! Don't forget, tonight is another potluck at the Gaskins house. Since the main dish is being provided, please bring sides, desserts, and drinks! Looking forward to seeing you all there!
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
"To my credit, my top requirement for my imaginary wife was that she has a deep understanding of God's grace — which was nice, but it was horribly ironic in that I had very little grace for women who didn't meet my other specifications. For example, I wanted my wife to look gorgeous, love exercising, enjoy being outdoors, get my sense of humor, want multiple children, and challenge me (but only in the most respectful way). Oh, and one more thing: I did not want a woman who showed signs of insecurity or neediness. And believe it or not, I was surprised to find that this woman did not seem to exist — but I sure wasn't about to give up on finding her.
What was even more disappointing was when I met women who had potential but turned out to be just as picky as I was. As I later learned, those women had a laundry list of requirements that was just as unrealistic as mine."
boundless.org If you wonder why nobody seems to be the right fit, maybe it's time to ask what you expect in a spouse and how realistically you're assessing yourself.
What are some unrealistic expectations women have of men?
What expectations are realistic, and which ones should women be willing to drop?
In this Ask Joy, Emerson and Joy talk about ways to approach personal expectations of relationships and emphasize the importance of defining what your specif...
Money is a major topic with God. In fact the Bible offers 500 verses on prayer, fewer than 500 verses on faith, and more than 2,000 verses on money. 15 percent of what Jesus taught was on the topic of money and possessions — more than His teachings on heaven and hell combined. So come join us tonight as we cover this topic at the Cove, 7pm, to see what God might want to tell you about this topic!
Romans 13:8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.
Have a question? What about something you'd like biblical guidance on? Then make sure to attend tonight's Q&A with Pastor Kerry Rose, 7pm at the Cove. And if you don't have a question yet, now is a good time to start thinking of one. We could always use godly advice!
Proverbs 18:15 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.
Sometimes people create a sort of checklist for who they want to marry. Mental attributes, emotional attributes, physical attributes, socioeconomic background, etc...
But what about creating a checklist yourself- for who you need to be as a spouse?

Happy Valetine’s Day!
As singles, today can be a rough. But remember Matt 14 - it was only when Peter tooks his focus off Jesus and focused on his circumstances that he began to sink. Do not let yourself sink into despair, but rather keep your eyes on Christ! For whom better to look to to be our own Valentines but the One who loves us best?
My beloved is mine, and I am his.
He feeds his flock among the lilies.
Today we are meeting at Frontier (across from UNM) at 6:30p, then we’ll be heading over to Lobo Theater to watch Calvary Nob Hill’s showing of The Princess Bride.

Do you treat God's Will like a scavenger hunt?
Gary Thomas believes the idea of soul mates can actually be a destructive concept. In a recent Family Life Today broadcast he said:
"I believe the notion that we have to find ‘the one’ is one of the most destructive and unhelpful beliefs that Christian singles have today. I think it leads to more foolish choices than it leads to wise choices. . . . particularly, when I don’t see any scriptural evidence for it—when I have to go back to Plato and The Symposium to even seen this modern notion of a soul mate.”
startmarriageright.com Six months into my relationship with Josh, I began to feel some intense angst. I struggled knowing for certain if he was “the one.”
Happy New Year Singles! Hope you’re all looking forward to this year with hope!
“Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
The beast of the field will honor Me,
The jackals and the ostriches,
Because I give waters in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My people, My chosen.
This people I have formed for Myself;
They shall declare My praise.
Speaking of things to look forward to, tonight is a food and fellowship night at Village Inn (6300 San Mateo Blvd NE) at 7pm.
Hope to see you all then!
Good afternoon Singles! Today we will be serving dinner and cleaning up at Joy Junction (4500 2nd Street SW) at 4:15. Make sure you are not late or you may not be able to join us, so make sure to give yourself enough time to get there and turn in your paperwork. If you do NOT have your paperwork filled out and with you, show up at least 15 minutes early so as to not hold up the staff at Joy Junction. And make sure you don’t forget to bring your photo ID.

Proverbs 22:9 He who has a generous eye will be blessed, for he gives of his bread to the poor.
Good morning Singles! It’s another blessed day!
Join us tonight as we spread the joy of Christ, 5:30pm, at the Good Samaritan Monzano del Sol Nursing Home (5201 Roma Ave, south and west of Lomas and San Mateo) to visit with residents and sing some Christmas carols.

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
Currently the divorce rate is about 50%. Many marriages result in divorce because of the way the couples view marriage.
Do you have the right view of marriage?
One day a boy lost one of his contact lenses. They were worth $250. He spent a lot of time trying to locate it, but he couldn’t. Eventually, he told his mom. The boy’s mom began looking for the contact lens with him and found it in a matter of minutes.
The boy asked, “How did you find that contact lens in just a few minutes when I must have looked for 20 minutes?” The mom said, “That’s easy. You didn’t find it because you were looking for a contact lens. I found it because I was looking for $250.”
The boys efforts reflected someone who did not recognize the value of what he was looking for.
So what about you. Do you view marriage the way everyone else seems to, not recognizing the true worth and nature of marriage?
Or do you view marriage the way God does? How much of His view do you even understand?

Francine was a beautiful, loving sister. We offer prayer, condolences and friendship for those who so keenly feel her absence. But we also look forward to seeing her again one day when we ourselves are also called Home to be with our precious Savior and family.

“O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
