Friend Day

Friends are a great part of life!  Sometimes we get busy doing our own thing and miss out on making life better by spending time with our friends; but doing things with friends is almost always more fun than doing that thing alone.  That’s why we have made April 15th, “Friend Day” – 10:30 in the morning & 6:00 in the evening.

We don’t need a particular reason to get together with friends, all we need is a good excuse. “Friend Day” is your excuse to get together to worship with friends at Calvary – You are invited!  Invite your friends!

David Smith, of Okemah, Oklahoma, is a faith-preaching evangelist.  His passion is evident in everything he does, and God continues to use him mightily to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ with signs, wonders, and miracles.
