Representing Calvary Baptist Church on 23rd Street in Wilmington, Pastor Donnie Lovette joins us for Church of the Week. Calvary started out as the first Baptist church of Wilmington. As a big family that enjoys different styles of music, you’ll find blended worship on Sunday mornings… when churches are able to meet again, that is.
In these unusual times, churches are finding new ways to minister to their congregation. Like others in the area, they are streaming a worship service on their Facebook page at 10:45am on Sunday mornings. Pastor Donnie is also encouraging his flock to get out of the house. Instead of sitting at home in front of the television, get some sunshine and fresh air.
“In an attempt to stop a physical disease,” says Pastor Donnie, “we are hurting ourselves emotionally and spiritually.” He has been reminding his church members of 2 Timothy 1:7 which says, “God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” Fear does’t come from God, but we can draw strength from Him and His Word.
