Calvary updates on our COVID-19 response


** Calvary is offering ONSITE Worship Services, Bible Studies and Sunday School **

I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust”   (Psalm 91:2).

As our nation and community continue to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue as a congregation to support and encourage one another through this time, even as we make needed adjustments within our lives. Please continue to worship and study God's word with us onsite or online.  Check out our Video Ministry page or see our posts on our Facebook page.

Congregational Updates

Church Update — June 18, 2021

Galatians 6:9-10 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Calvary continues to offer Worship Services, Bible Studies and Sunday School both ONSITE and ONLINE. Please take into account your individual risk factors when making your decision on onsite or online options.

New Changes to Covid-19 Protocols

On Monday night, June 7, 2021, the City-County Council members approved a proposal to change Marion County’s COVID-19 limitations. The city’s mask mandate will be lifted for people who are fully vaccinated. Masks will still be required in Marion County inside hospitals and airports or on public transportation. Capacity for religious services and funerals was increased to 100% (up from 75%).

In response to changes to the Marion County Mask mandate, Calvary will be making the following transitions within our ministry events.

Saturday worship. June 19 will be the conclusion of our 2-week trial for a mask required service, as we sought to understand the need or desire for such a service. The feedback we received indicated that at this time we do not need to offer a mask required service. Starting June 26, our Saturday service will follow the same guidelines as our...

Sunday worship. In line with CDC recommendations and Marion County guidelines both Sunday services are mask optional services for those who are vaccinated. 

Bible studies & meetings. These will be mask optional unless the members of a specific Bible study or ministry group choose as a whole to ask all in attendance to wear a mask. 

Communion Distribution. Starting this weekend (June 19/20), we have removed the serving tables and will be serving directly at the rail. You are welcome to kneel or stand. The worship leader will serve you the wafer and then offer you to take an individual cup from the communion tray. At this time we will continue to approach the rail in family groups.

We thank you for your continued efforts to honor and care for one another in these transitional times. We continue to have an opportunity to serve one another in a Christlike fashion, as we live together in his grace and compassion.
