Calvary & COVID-19

TUESDAY, MARCH 17

 

 

As you all are aware, COVID-19 is a dynamic situation that changes daily. Our staff is closely monitoring it and seeking God about how we as a church should proceed forward. At this time, we have determined that through the end of March we will continue doing church at home. The purpose is to partner with our community, and practice social distancing for the sake of slowing the spread of the virus. Below are some questions we can address at this time. As information develops, we will update this page.

Is Calvary Fellowship gathering for service this Sunday?

In order to minimize the risk of illness and protect those entrusted to us we have decided to forgo large public gatherings; however, we are moving forward with church at home which provides an online service experience for you and your family. A newsletter will be sent out on Thursday with details on how to access and interact with the stream and we’ll provide the link in a Sunday morning newsletter. Click here to watch last week’s message entitled, “In Times of Trouble.”

How can I Connect With Others While at Home?

In light of not being able to gather together as one church body, we’re utilizing Home Fellowship groups as an opportunity for small groups to connect virtually. We know not everybody signed up a group this winter cycle and we are in the process of creating more groups so you can meet virtually. We’ll provide those updates as they come along.

How can I stay up to date with all that’s happening?

We’ll be updating this page frequently, so you can find all updates here. If you’re not already subscribed to our newsletter, please email Crystal, and be sure to like and follow us on our Facebook and Instagram accounts as we’ll be posting frequent updates on social media.

How should I respond to COVID-19?

Here’s some important information from the CDC:

  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when sick.
We realize these are challenging and confusing times as we are all trying to figure out what God is up to and how we should respond. But for now remember there are many things that have not changed:
  • God is on the throne and in control
  • He has a plan for His people that nothing can stop
  • He wants His people to love Him and one another deeply
  • He wants to use us to reach people who don’t yet have the hope we do in Jesus

Stay connected to Him and let’s stay connected together as a church family during this time and make the most of whatever opportunities He puts before us!
