Calvary is blessed by a gifted group of members who read Scripture in our weekly worship services.
In the faithful reading of Scripture our scripture readers have the privilege of sharing the Word of God with the assembly. When Scripture is truly proclaimed with conviction, the readings can stir souls to gratitude, call the lost to return, console the despairing, and exhort those who need encouragement to act lovingly.
Above all readers understand and believe that they are performing a real ministry of presence and communion. They believe that the Lord is active and present to the assembly through their proclamation that the Lord longs to speak and be heard in the biblical word they proclaim. It is a word for this assembly, here and now, and each of its members is called to hear and respond to that word today, this week, over the coming weeks.
