Music, testifying and biscuits for New Year's

You can ring in the new year at Calvary Community Church in Conyers.

The church will offer a New Year’s Eve service at 9:30 p.m. Friday that will feature music, opportunities for participants to testify and biscuits after midnight, according to the church pastor, Tim Walden.

"We do a New Year’s Eve service almost every year, but we really never had a set format before,’’ he said. "Our vision for this year’s service is to set our hearts on the New Year and not focus on the past. For as the Bible says (in Proverbs 29:18), ‘Without a vision the people perish.’ We hope to leave with a greater vision for 2011 and to see more people involved in their local churches and coming together as families in the New Year."

The Calvary Community Church Band will play, and the church is welcoming The Halls of Glory Renewed, an all-female Gospel band with what Walden calls "a great testimony of what God can do."

"Visitors can expect a variety of things from the music to the ministering of God’s word," said Walden. "We are a full gospel spirit filled church."

Walden says that the message of the night is one of the hope in the face of difficult times that can only come from a relationship with God.

"My word for the church is there is still hope," he said. "America is still the greatest nation, and God is still blessing us. If we will just walk as close as we can to his word, He will get us through whatever hard times we will face.

"He has never failed us, and he never will. Also, we as Christians should not to be so quick to judge those around us because we never really know what they are or have been going through. Show the love of God in our actions and attitudes, and God will, in turn, bless us all."
