Modifications of COVID restrictions
Beginning Sunday, March 7th in the 11 AM service, the worship team singers will not be wearing masks as they sing.
The Leadership Board has approved some COVID-related changes that we wanted to draw your attention to. First, starting this coming Sunday, March 7th in the 11 AM service, the worship team singers will not be wearing masks as they sing. This change is part of an incremental process of working towards returning safely to pre-COVID expectations and also hoping to provide a greater sense of connection both in the building and online for those attending our service. This change will only affect the 11 AM Sunday morning worship service at this time and does not change the masking policy for those attending the service, only those singing on the worship team. With this change, both the 9 AM and 11 AM services will be available via live stream. Our desire was to announce this change sooner in the week to allow those RSVPing for our service a chance to make their decision with this information in mind. If you have already RSVPed for the 11 AM service and would like to change that for any reason, please contact Kathy Martin, [email protected], who can assist you with that process.
Sunday Morning Early Childhood classes resume
The second is an update from Family Ministries. As those of you with children in this age range have hopefully heard, we will be resuming Early Childhood classes starting this Sunday. You should have received an email today from Amy Bowers with more details, so please check that out. If you have friends or family attending this week that may not have received this information, please contact Amy or Pastor Brian for the details.
Please let us know you are coming
Space is limited.
And if you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please reach out to myself or another Leadership Board member. We would be happy to talk more with you.
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

- You can schedule a room at Calvary online.
- Calvary has quick-read forehead thermometers and a supply of face masks available for those who do not have access to one.
- If you host a face-to-face get together and learn one of your group members tests positive for COVID-19, please contact a staff member and we will make the necessary reporting steps.
These modifications are based upon the Leadership Board’s prayerful consideration and discussion of the needs of Calvary, the downward trends of COVID infection rates and hospitalizations, and the increasing availability of a vaccine.
