ABOUT THIS REPLANT
Calvary Las Animas is looking forward to serving the Las Animas area beginning in September 2021. Calvary Las Animas is forming out of what was Parkview Baptist Church. In February 2020, the Parkview congregation voted to transfer church leadership over to Calvary La Junta, a town 20-25 minutes away. The pastors of La Junta would love to meet with you to share their plans to reach the Las Animas area with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you are interested in hearing more about Calvary Las Animas and how you can help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reach out to you soon!
Calvary Las Animas is not currently holding Sunday services.
If you are interested in attending services at our sending church, Calvary La Junta, that congregation meets at 10:45 a.m. at 421 Colorado Ave., La Junta, CO 81050.
WHAT IS REPLANTING?
Think of it like this… You were given a plant that was beautiful! Everyone that came to your house complimented you on its size, health, and vibrance. The plant’s fragrance was breath-taking. One day, however, you noticed the plant was changing. Its leaves were turning pale yellow and the plant looked slightly withered. You hadn’t forgotten to water it. Maybe someone else watered it too much? Maybe it is not getting enough light? You love this plant and you will do whatever it takes to save it! If you do not act now it is going to die!
Quickly you get the plant into a pot where you can get back to the basics. You get good soil in the pot with some quality nutrients. All you need now is ample sunshine and water. Deep green color starts to return to the leaves and its strength starts to return. It took time, but it is coming back to health and vitality!
Now replace the flower in a pot with a church in a community. This is “replanting.” There is nothing about a dying church that brings glory to God! As Christians, we need to lock arms and fight to stop the trend of in our communities of churches dying.
The Calvary Family of Churches is passionate about replanting! We are committed to building off the legacy of a church like Parkview Baptist Church and seeing God do an amazing work through His church in the Las Animas community!
In the analogy above regarding the plant, you did not hear that it took loud music, smoke machines or a cool new building to make the plant come back to life. It was getting back to the basics of what the plant needed for health: good soil, fresh water and sunshine. It took a person that loves radically and sacrificially to save the plant.
HOW CAN I HELP?
We are in desperate need now of people who want to see faithful, biblical churches healthy and thriving! People that will love the community of Las Animas through this new church being replanted out of Parkview Baptist Church.
