Covid Reopening Updates

A Message from Pastor Doug

As we continue to move forward to return to normalcy after a year of uncertainty, and in response to the adjustments in policy being made throughout the state of Florida, we want to update you on a few changes that are being implemented at all of our campuses. Please take a moment to watch this short video from Pastor Doug Sauder sharing our heart for the people of our church and city as we navigate these changes.

Reopening FAQ's

Do I have to wear a mask to church this weekend?

We simply ask that you consider wearing a mask while walking around indoors and near other people.

How are you handling sanitation?

Hand washing and hand sanitizer stations will be available at multiple locations throughout the property.

How many people can attend service? How will I be seated?

We’re gradually increasing our seating capacity. Please honor others by keeping a safe physical distance whenever possible.

Will childcare and/or Calvary Kids/Youth Services be happening?

Yes! Both Calvary Youth (middle and high school) services and Calvary Kids are gathering during service again. For campus-specific info, visit the campus page in the section above.

Will food be available for purchase after service?

Yes! Food services are available after service at various campuses.

What if I don’t feel ready to come back to a large group gathering?

We totally understand! Everyone needs to make the best decision for their individual circumstance. If you’re at-risk or feel more comfortable worshipping at home, you still can! We will continue providing an awesome online worship experience, prayer line, as well as outreach and virtual small group opportunities during the week. You might also decide that hosting virtual or in-person watch parties with a smaller group is right for you in this season.

Will there be access for wheelchairs?

Yes. There will be accommodations for those with limited mobility.

Will there be translation?

Translation services are available at some of our campuses and services. Check with the individual campus pages for translation information at the campus of your choosing using the menu at the top of this page.

What should we expect from one another?

It is our desire to be considerate of everyone as much as possible as we make some safety transitions over the summer. Our emphasis during this season is centered on wisdom and love. The expectation is that we will abide by the practical applications below.

 

PRACTICALLY, WISDOM LOOKS LIKE…

  • If you feel sick, stay home.
  • If you feel safer wearing a mask, wear a mask. 
  • Maintain a safe physical distance from others and wash your hands regularly and frequently. 

 

PRACTICALLY, LOVE LOOKS LIKE…

  • Be kind and understanding towards  someone wearing a mask if you choose not to wear one.
  • Be kind and understanding towards someone not wearing a mask if you choose to wear one.
  • Be patient, and accommodating even, with someone who would prefer differently than you. (“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”—Romans 12:18)
