Jesus is our great High Priest, who makes a way for those who follow Him to have fellowship with the Father. As we examine the details of the tabernacle recorded in Exodus 26-27, we'll see shadows of heaven and of Christ Himself, and come to appreciate Jesus even more.
From the teaching series 02 Exodus - 2011
|Exodus 26 (NKJV™)|
|1||"Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with artistic designs of cherubim you shall weave them.|
|2||"The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. And every one of the curtains shall have the same measurements.|
|3||"Five curtains shall be coupled to one another, and the other five curtains shall be coupled to one another.|
|4||"And you shall make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the curtain on the selvedge of one set, and likewise you shall do on the outer edge of the other curtain of the second set.|
|5||"Fifty loops you shall make in the one curtain, and fifty loops you shall make on the edge of the curtain that is on the end of the second set, that the loops may be clasped to one another.|
|6||"And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps, so that it may be one tabernacle.|
|7||"You shall also make curtains of goats' hair, to be a tent over the tabernacle. You shall make eleven curtains.|
|8||"The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; and the eleven curtains shall all have the same measurements.|
|9||"And you shall couple five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves, and you shall double over the sixth curtain at the forefront of the tent.|
|10||"You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set.|
|11||"And you shall make fifty bronze clasps, put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one.|
|12||"The remnant that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle.|
|13||"And a cubit on one side and a cubit on the other side, of what remains of the length of the curtains of the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and on that side, to cover it.|
|14||"You shall also make a covering of ram skins dyed red for the tent, and a covering of badger skins above that.|
|15||"And for the tabernacle you shall make the boards of acacia wood, standing upright.|
|16||"Ten cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the width of each board.|
|17||"Two tenons shall be in each board for binding one to another. Thus you shall make for all the boards of the tabernacle.|
|18||"And you shall make the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards for the south side.|
|19||"You shall make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards: two sockets under each of the boards for its two tenons.|
|20||"And for the second side of the tabernacle, the north side, there shall be twenty boards|
|21||"and their forty sockets of silver: two sockets under each of the boards.|
|22||"For the far side of the tabernacle, westward, you shall make six boards.|
|23||"And you shall also make two boards for the two back corners of the tabernacle.|
|24||"They shall be coupled together at the bottom and they shall be coupled together at the top by one ring. Thus it shall be for both of them. They shall be for the two corners.|
|25||"So there shall be eight boards with their sockets of silver--sixteen sockets--two sockets under each board.|
|26||"And you shall make bars of acacia wood: five for the boards on one side of the tabernacle,|
|27||"five bars for the boards on the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, for the far side westward.|
|28||"The middle bar shall pass through the midst of the boards from end to end.|
|29||"You shall overlay the boards with gold, make their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlay the bars with gold.|
|30||"And you shall raise up the tabernacle according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain.|
|31||"You shall make a veil woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen. It shall be woven with an artistic design of cherubim.|
|32||"You shall hang it upon the four pillars of acacia wood overlaid with gold. Their hooks shall be gold, upon four sockets of silver.|
|33||"And you shall hang the veil from the clasps. Then you shall bring the ark of the Testimony in there, behind the veil. The veil shall be a divider for you between the holy place and the Most Holy.|
|34||"You shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy.|
|35||"You shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand across from the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; and you shall put the table on the north side.|
|36||"You shall make a screen for the door of the tabernacle, woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver.|
|37||"And you shall make for the screen five pillars of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold; their hooks shall be of gold, and you shall cast five sockets of bronze for them.|
|Exodus 27 (NKJV™)|
|1||"You shall make an altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide--the altar shall be square--and its height shall be three cubits.|
|2||"You shall make its horns on its four corners; its horns shall be of one piece with it. And you shall overlay it with bronze.|
|3||"Also you shall make its pans to receive its ashes, and its shovels and its basins and its forks and its firepans; you shall make all its utensils of bronze.|
|4||"You shall make a grate for it, a network of bronze; and on the network you shall make four bronze rings at its four corners.|
|5||"You shall put it under the rim of the altar beneath, that the network may be midway up the altar.|
|6||"And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with bronze.|
|7||"The poles shall be put in the rings, and the poles shall be on the two sides of the altar to bear it.|
|8||"You shall make it hollow with boards; as it was shown you on the mountain, so shall they make it.|
|9||"You shall also make the court of the tabernacle. For the south side there shall be hangings for the court made of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long for one side.|
|10||"And its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets shall be bronze. The hooks of the pillars and their bands shall be silver.|
|11||"Likewise along the length of the north side there shall be hangings one hundred cubits long, with its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets of bronze, and the hooks of the pillars and their bands of silver.|
|12||"And along the width of the court on the west side shall be hangings of fifty cubits, with their ten pillars and their ten sockets.|
|13||"The width of the court on the east side shall be fifty cubits.|
|14||"The hangings on one side of the gate shall be fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three sockets.|
|15||"And on the other side shall be hangings of fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three sockets.|
|16||"For the gate of the court there shall be a screen twenty cubits long, woven of blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver. It shall have four pillars and four sockets.|
|17||"All the pillars around the court shall have bands of silver; their hooks shall be of silver and their sockets of bronze.|
|18||"The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits, the width fifty throughout, and the height five cubits, made of fine woven linen, and its sockets of bronze.|
|19||"All the utensils of the tabernacle for all its service, all its pegs, and all the pegs of the court, shall be of bronze.|
|20||"And you shall command the children of Israel that they bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually.|
|21||"In the tabernacle of meeting, outside the veil which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening until morning before the LORD. It shall be a statute forever to their generations on behalf of the children of Israel.|

Who We Are:
We pursue the God who is passionately pursuing a lost world; we do this with one another, through worship, by the Word, to the world.
What We Do:
We express our adoration of Jesus through dynamic worship and uncompromised obedience.
We explain the relevance of the Bible to empower and transform lives for service.
We extend hope to a hurting world by proclaiming the gospel and demonstrating Christ's love.
We Believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.
We Believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We Believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in Holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ.
We Believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.
We Believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teaching, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.
We Believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all that believe in Jesus Christ for ministry.
We Believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.
We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We Believe that all people are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
We Believe that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and empowers the believers for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
We Believe in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head, and all regenerated persons are members.
We Believe that Jesus committed two ordinances to the church: 1) Baptism and, 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
We Believe also in the laying on of hands for baptism of the Holy Spirit, for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and receiving from the Holy Spirit through the believer the gift of healing.
We Believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to the earth and the establishing of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
We Believe in what is termed the Apostles Creed as embodying the fundamental facts of Christian faith.

At Calvary we believe that giving is a matter of the heart and that each person should give according to what they believe the LORD has purposed in their hearts.
We do not take a formal offering at Calvary, however there are brown wooden boxes (Agape boxes) located in and around the sanctuary for your gifts, offerings, and prayer requests. Below you will find resources to help you in the giving process.
All donations to the church and its ministries are 100% tax-deductible. Statements detailing your financial contributions in excess of $250 are automatically mailed each year prior to January 31. Additional statements are available upon request.
Beginning in the brickyards of Egypt and ending in the tabernacle filled with God's presence, the book of Exodus chronicles the deliverance of God's people from Egypt and records the end of their oppression under Pharaoh. It also provides an account of the beginning of a prophecy fulfilled: God promised Abraham descendants beyond number, and on the pages of Exodus we see Israel become a great nation.
In this verse-by-verse study, Pastor Skip Heitzig presents an in-depth look at Moses, the ten plagues, the ten commandments, the desert wanderings, the construction of the tabernacle, and more. As we study, we'll see the grace of God, witness the glory of the Lord, and a catch a glimpse of Israel's coming Savior.
