WORSHIP

 

 
Calvary asks that facility users continue to wear masks while in the facility.
Calvary leadership continues to evaluate the path forward regarding building use,
masking, and various activities within the facility.
 
We greatly appreciate your patience and grace as we work quickly to discern our next steps.
Pre-registration no longer required!

Children:

  • Kids are very welcome at Calvary, and we don’t expect them to be silent or still.   

    We aren’t quire ready for children’s Sunday School.  Sunday School involves both facility and volunteer concerns, as well as a number of parents who aren’t ready for their kids to be involved or to volunteer as teachers.  If you have questions about this, or some ideas on how to move forward with children’s ministries, please let us know.

 

I still have questions!
