Covid-19 Response Update

Covid-19 Response

Join us indoors Sunday, November 1st

Our Worship Services are at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM

RSVP for our Sunday Church Service

 

    • RSVP online for the service you will attend

We have two service times in two locations.  They are 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.  In the Sanctuary, there will be the live worship service with live singing that is live-streamed for those who cannot attend.  In the Fellowship Hall, there will be a live-streamed, non-singing service with a worship host there to greet you and guide you.  Please consider giving inside worship with your Calvary family a try!  And if you should not give it a try, please join us regularly online for the live-stream service at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday (It will then be available for you to download from our website if you can’t participate in real-time)

    • Help us provide a safer worship experience

We ask all attendees, except children 5 and under, to wear masks over mouth and nose at all times while in the building.  Ushers will help seat you by households with proper social distancing.  If you are attending a Sanctuary service, please park in the main (East) lot and enter through Door 1 (Lobby).  If you are attending the Fellowship Hall (non-singing) service, you may park in the West lot (to your left as you come up our driveway) and enter Door #3 for reduced exposure.

    • Stay after or come early to connect in the gym

The gym will be waiting for you for a warm place to connect with your Calvary family between services (10:00—11:00 a.m.)  Since even in the gym our masks will be on, coffee and treats are on hold.  However, we are brainstorming creative ways we can bring back treats occasionally, even if just for take-out.  Please remember the 6’ or more for 15 minutes or less goal while you connect.

    • Help make it possible to worship and connect well

Few things will make these worship services more meaningful to you than being a part of making them more meaningful for others.  From people directing you to park to the people thanking you for coming (and maybe handing you a treat when you leave), we have ways you can make a difference.

    • Pray for and practice Philippians 2:1-5

“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus…”  If we all pray for and do our best to practice this passage, moving inside during COVID may not only be smooth, we may well look back on it as a very rich season for the Calvary family.

Calvary's Mask Policy

We are asking the Calvary family to wear a mask while indoors at Calvary. We are complying with the recent Minnesota Statewide Face Covering mandate for public indoor gatherings. There are exceptions for kids under 6 and people with medical conditions.

Returning Safely to Face-to-Face Community

In the Calvary family, there are two places we will most likely return to face-to-face community- our house (the Calvary facility) and your house. The following chart will guide us in how we plan to transition safely in Level III
