Gathering Guidelines

Calvary Church's service times are 8:00 AM, 9:30 AM, and 11:00 AM and include singing together. We know there are many in our church family who, for various reasons, will not be regathering at Calvary Church at this time. We will continue with our live stream on Sundays and seek to provide opportunities for you to take steps in your faith. Due to the fluid nature of the recommended guidelines for churches please check back on the Calvary website for any changes or updated guidelines prior to attending any service.

General Guidelines at Calvary Church:
  • All attendees are asked to practice social distancing while in the building unless in a designated open section (see Main Auditorium section below).
  • All attendees are asked to wear a mask. (Masks are available at each Connection Center).
  • We strongly recommend that those with pre-existing health conditions and/or those who are considered high-risk continue to engage with Sunday worship service online.
  • We will seek to adhere to occupancy limits for each room to help comply with social distancing guidelines.
  • Some environments may have adaptations to the above guidelines, but ministry leaders will communicate those on a case-by-case basis.
  • No meals, potlucks, or self-serve drink options will be available during this time.
Guidelines specific for Children and Students:
  • Masks are optional for children from birth to Pre-Kindergarten.
