An amazing milestone is going to be reached this coming Sunday at the Calvary Baptist Church in Ninilchik. More than 24 years ago, in December of 1989, the new pastor Ron Blough started reading through the Bible one chapter per week on Sunday mornings. Pastor Blough remained in Ninilchik for more than 15 years and when the now current Pastor Kit Pherson took over in 2005 he continued the tradition.
Well, you probably guessed it. This coming Sunday they will be reading Revelation 22, the last chapter of the Bible.
Although I am no longer a member of the church, my dad is Ron Blough, and I come to visit every summer and attend services. I think it would be awesome if those reading this could come and experience this special occasion with us. Calvary Baptist, which was founded in the late 1930s, has kept a light shining for Christ for more than 70 years.
Pastor Ron Blough now resides in Hoonah, Alaska, but will be phoning in the last reading from his home. The service starts at 10:30 a.m. and we would love to see you there. A couple of the verses that will be read from the last chapter kinda say it all.
Revelation 22:17 and 21: “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. … 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”
