Your Church Council along with Worship & Music and church staff have worked together to develop a strategy for safe worship gathering at Calvary, and an email was sent to the congregation outlining those procedures. Click here to view the letter to the congregation
In-person worship is available for those with reservations ahead of time. You must make your reservations by calling the church office. Click here to read the procedure for getting reservations.
Space is limited, so if you do not get a reservation you can still attend livestreamed services on Calvary's YouTube Channel at 8:30 and 11:00.
Now that we are back in the Sanctuary we will resume having weekly altar flowers. Those who prepaid last year for flowers will get first dibs on dates.

Starting April 11th, Susan Norris will pick up with the class while Pr. Debbie is on sabbatical:
Following in Christ’s Footsteps - Lessons for Living an Abundant Life.
“This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He
suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.” 1 Peter 2:21 (The Message)
Through our Lenten journey and Holy Week worship, we reflected on how we
are reconciled to God by Jesus’ death, but even more we are “saved” by his life. In Streams of Living Water, Richard Foster details “ how Jesus in his living
provides us a clear paradigm for our living.”
Beginning April 11, join Susan
Norris via Zoom on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m. for a discussion of Foster’s
study of six traditions in the history of the church that have evolved from
individuals' attempts to follow in Christ’s footsteps.
Through this study, we will
reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of our own spiritual lives with
suggestions for steps we can take to discover a more balanced vision of our
Christian faith and practice.

If joining by phone, you need the Meeting ID: ID# 851-3605-1040
We know that some Calvary members have not been able to join us on YouTube for worship during the pandemic. For this reason, we are offering to mail our weekly bulletin (including weekly scriptures) to any member or Calvary friend who would like to have a copy for home worship.
Please call 704-782-6923 or email Shannon at email@example.com if you or someone you know would like to receive our weekly bulletin and other worship resources in the mail. Please specify which service you would like to receive.
Home Communion Materials
While we are very pleased to have the option to gather in person and receive Holy Communion, many are still joining us from home via live-streaming on You Tube. As always, you can participate in the sacrament with bread and wine/juice at home. If you would like to receive the elements that Pr. Debbie distributes on Sunday please call the office 704-782-6923
