Here is an update on scheduling and what Calvary is doing to help everyone stay healthy during this COVID-19 pandemic. To help all of our members do what they feel is best for them and their families, we are making options available for everyone; therefore, effective this Sunday we will be following this new schedule for the next two weeks:
THERE WILL BE NO SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday @ 9 AM – Senior Saint Service Only (Ages 60+ only will be permitted to attend). We will meet in the auditorium on the first front center 7 pews. In a critical time where those who are 60+ are at the highest risk, we want to make sure our seniors have peace of mind and comfort in knowing that if they choose to attend church, they can do so safely and not worry about a large group of people being around and running the risk of becoming sick. No nursery will be provided during this service.
Downtown Ministry @ 10 AM - The Jacksonville Downtown Bus will run at it's normal time and meet at 10 am in the Miller Building. The downtown group will meet at 10 AM eat their lunch and then leave to go home. They will not attend the 11 AM service.
Sunday @ 11 AM – Service for all other Adults, Young Adults, Children & Teens. Our buses will continue to run; however, just at a later time. Children (1st-6th) will meet in Rager Hall for Jr. Church and all other Adults and Teens will meet in the main auditorium for service. We will have a nursery for this service only. However, if you have little ones that have runny noses, cough, fever, or other sickness they will not be permitted in the nursery. This is for the safety of our nursery workers and other little ones. Our preschool department will meet all together (3-5 year olds) in the large room in the right winged hallway (Bro. McMullin’s Sunday school class).
To help minimize the spreading of germs, we will not use the songbooks or pass the offering plate for these Sunday AM services. The lyrics to our hymns will be on the screens and your offering can be dropped off at the front of the church auditorium in the offering plates.
Sunday PM & Wednesday PM @ 6 PM – We will have house church fellowships. We have 6-7 families in our church who will be hosting church at their homes for small groups of members to attend. We will divide up our members on where to attend based on your location. On Sunday evenings the house churches will meet at 6 PM for announcements, singing, testimony, offering and then at 6:30 will tune into our live stream service at church to hear Pastor Pledger preach. On Wednesday evenings the house churches will have a Bible study brought to them by the leader of each of those groups. The house churches should dismiss no later than 7:30 PM. The church house leaders will be in contact with members to invite you to their home and get involved.
On these nights as well, we will also have a service for our seniors (60+) at our church location in the main auditorium where Pastor Pledger will give a sermon/bible study.
All of our services will be live streamed here on our church website or on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel. Should you choose to attend our services via live stream, you may also give your tithes and offerings online via our giving portal at https://calvarycares.net/giving/.
