CAC Chaplaincy Prayer, 3/16/16

 Regardless of level or interest, anyone who cares to fulfill the compassion exemplified and expected by Jesus Christ is welcome to join. The fields are white and there’s lots of work to be done! The army of CAC chaplains is growing and being dispatched as our churchwide vision for every soul advances. Remember the Great command and the Great commission summed up: We love Jesus Christ so much that we love souls enough to rescue, equip, and repeat.
Prayer and vision casting for CAC chaplains, past, present, and future. Wednesday, March 16, at 7:30 PM.

Prayer Pattern in Your Hand!

 Matthew 6:9-13  After this manner therefore pray ye: 

PRAISE: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 

PURPOSE: Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 

PROVISION: Give us this day our daily bread. 

PARDON: And forgive us our debts, 

PEOPLE: as we forgive our debtors. 

PROTECTION: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: 

PRAISE! For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

THE DIFFERENCEI got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t take time to pray.

Problems just tumbling about me, and heavier came each task;

“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered: “You didn’t ask.”

I wanted to see joy and beauty – but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;

I wondered why God didn’t show me, He said: “But you didn’t seek.”

I tried to come into God’s presence, I used all my keys at the lock

God gently and lovingly chided: “My child, you didn’t knock.”

I woke up early this morning and paused before entering the day;

I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

Apostolic Oneness Simplicity!

Missing you, CAC, on this Tuesday evening, following a stormy, snowy two days. We pray that you’re warm and safe. Here’s a short message to (hopefully) encourage you in your apostolic journey!

Thankful to be apostolic in word and deed,

–Pastor Haymon

 2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 

   2 Corinthians 1:12 (KJV)
For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. 

Honoring Marriage! Valentine’s Day 2016

Honoring Marriage Text ImageDo you have plans for Valentine’s Day?

It’s a day for romantic dinners, flowers, chocolate, and clothing the world in red.

But this year Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, and regardless of your age or status, we have something wonderfully new and refreshing in mind!

At CAC, we believe this offers the perfect opportunity for the church family to unite in conveying one important message – marriage should be honored by all. “All” means everyone. Neighbors, co-workers, friends, family – the list goes on – everyone is called upon to honor the divinely sanctioned institution of marriage. As Hebrews 13:4 says, “Let marriage be held in honor among all” (ESV).

To that end, I’m excited to announce a special theme for the second weekend in February: Honoring Marriage 2016.

The Bible is clear that God created marriage. As Apostolic Christians, it’s up to us to stand for the sacredness of marriage in a culture where it has been devalued. Where better to do so than in the context of God’s house where our commitment to marriage begins with our commitment to God?!

It all starts with stressing the importance of marriage. To do so, this Valentine’s Day, the CAC Youth & Young Adults Ministry will host a Date Night couples event on Friday, February 12 at 8:00 PM. On Sunday, Lord willing, the preaching (yes, I have a message burning in my heart!) will center around Honoring Marriage, as will Sunday school lessons/activities for our Kids In Prayer & Praise (KIPP) ministry.

It’s in the best interest of everyone to present a strong emphasis on marriage on Valentine’s Day weekend 2016. Our voices must be heard. The gospel Light must shine as brightly as ever in this dark hour. I challenge you, if you’re married, to mark your calendars for Friday, February 12th. If you’re married or not, please help get the word out to everyone you know that Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver is a church that is actively Honoring Marriage!

We believe the Honoring Marriage 2016 Event has the potential to help prepare couples for marriage, strengthen existing marriages, and save marriages that are facing challenges and even crisis.

Every follower of Christ, every Spirit-filled saint of God, is called to esteem marriage as highly valuable.

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled… Hebrews 13:4

Yours for God-center lives reaching the world,

Pastor Haymon

Tom James’ Family: Special Prayer Focus

Greetings, in Jesus’ precious Name!

The Thomas James’ family, a long-time faithful and cornerstone CAC family, is facing transitional medical care today. Your attention and focus in prayer is greatly appreciated. Yesterday, January 7, Sis. Toby James was rushed from her home to the emergency room and admitted into preliminary hospice care, on-site at the hospital. Today the family is awaiting a hospice care facility placement. At this moment, Sis. Toby is pain free and fairly stable.

It is times like these that provide the greatest opportunity for the love of church family to shine brightly. There is no doubt whatsoever that we all have our own burdens to bear. However, the law of Christ must be prioritized as the highest rule of our lives. We fulfill that law when we bear one another’s burdens. (See Galatians 6:2)

As of the writing of this email, the family is not requesting visitors; only thoughts and prayers.

Heartfelt Thanks from the James family!
