Online Worship - What to Expect

Here's what you can look for as we gather online:

  • Something familiar - We'll be intentional about incorporating familiar pieces of our Sunday worship.
  • Encouragement from God's word and God’s people - Pastor Matt and other members of our Calvary family will be present to share from God's word.
  • Family connections - There will be opportunities to interact in small ways. This will help us experience the presence of brothers and sisters in our worship time.

Our online worship this week will take place in two parts. First, we will have a livestream shared on Facebook (you do not need to have a Facebook account to view). This will offer our community, friends and neighbors an easy-to-access and easy-to-share devotional time centered on God's word.

Immediately following, we will gather as community on Zoom where we will be able to interact and join in conversation. We will discuss the message, pray for one another's requests, and enjoy the community side of worship in this online setting.

In order to participate with everything online, it’s recommended that you print a copy of the service ahead of time, and install Zoom on your computer or other device prior to worship. The service for this week is posted at the link below. It includes spoken parts, prayers and an outline for you to follow.

Drive-in Communion will be held about 10:45 the first Sunday of each month - park in the church lot and listen on your car's FM radio!
