In-Person Worship Services

Beginning Sunday, February 21 at 10:00 am (only)

Safely returning to in-person worship presents complications and limitations on our activities and seating capacity. The COVID-19 coronavirus continues to impact our community and we should continue recommended health protocols as published by the Indiana State Department of Health to protect members and guests.


We know there are many in our church family who, for various reasons, will not be regathering at Calvary at this time. We will continue with our online live stream on Sundays and seek to provide opportunities for you to take steps in your faith.

General Guidelines for In-Person Worship:

  • All attendees are asked to practice social distancing while in the building and sit in seating pods with your family unit.
  • All attendees are required to wear a mask.
  • We ask that each attendee in person sign-in upon entrance to the building as we keep attendance for contract tracing.
  • We strongly recommend that those with pre-existing health conditions and/or those who are considered high-risk continue to engage with Sunday worship online through our live stream.
  • We will seek to adhere to occupancy limits for each room to help comply with social distancing guidelines as groups decide to regather. Please contact the Church Office for further guidance and meeting suggestions and assistance in returning.
  • Some environments may have adaptations to the above guidelines, but ministry group leaders will communicate those on a case-by-case basis.
  • No self-service meals or drink options will be available at this time. Please bring your own coffee or water tumbler if you'd like.
  • Please follow all guidance giving by volunteers, leaders and signage as they ensure we create the safest experience possible for everyone.
