President’s Dinner Celebrates 85 Years of Calvary

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Last Thursday nearly 200 people gathered at the Memorial Station in Belton for Calvary’s annual President’s Dinner.  We enjoyed delicious prime rib from Silber Spoons Catering to celebrate our eighty-fifth anniversary.  We also listened to the Chorale sing two songs and watched a presentation about Calvary’s history.  In his Presidential Address, Dr. Cone looked back to the founding of Kansas City Bible Institute and a quote from Dr. Walter Wilson which referenced Luke 14:28. “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it.”  Dr. Wilson saw KCBI as a tower, and Dr. Cone reminded us that the tower is not finished yet.  There are still more men and women to train for the Lord’s service.

Dr. Cone gave the Presidential Address.

The evening’s offering went toward student scholarships.  We were blessed to hear testimonies from three students while sixteen others assisted the caterer with set-up, serving, and clean-up.  Randy Grimm presented the Hand-in-Hand award to Calvary alumni Dr. Mark and Brenda Pearson because of the financial support they have provided for many students over the years.
