SUNDAY SERVICES AT
CALVARY CAMBRIDGE
& CALVARY AYR

(updated September 13, 2021)

As of Sunday, September 5, 2021, we will no longer require registration for Sunday services.  Seating will still be limited and socially distanced, so please arrive on time in order to find a seat.

At all campuses we will continue to prioritize social distancing, mask wearing, and hand sanitization.  We ask that everyone in attendance would make it a priority as well.  Please see our mask policy below.

We are also happy to revive Calvary Connect and Guest Central on Sunday mornings.  If you have any questions after the service, visit Calvary Connect in the Atrium and one of our friendly and knowledgeable volunteers will help you.  If you are visiting for the first time, stop by Guest Central for more information about Calvary, and a free gift!

Throughout the month of September, we will be ramping up our re-opening as we approach our Fall Launch on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3.  Check back here each week to find out what updates are happening for Sundays!

Calvary Online Service will still continue. We understand that it makes sense for some individuals and families to continue to stay home. We invite you to continue to join us at either 9:15am or 11am for the livestream.

Whether you decide to attend in person or online, we pray that this will be a great experience for you and your family to meet with God!

We ask that all families with kids would visit the Kids Check In desk when they arrive.

AYR CAMPUS

The Ayr Campus will continue to provide one service at 10am every Sunday.  Ayr will plan to move to two services during the fall season.

AYR KIDS@CALVARY

FAMILY EXPERIENCE AT 10AM

Kids Activity Packs will also be available for kids sitting in the sanctuary.  Please be on time to secure your place, as space is limited.  Once capacities are reached, we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate any more families.

Volunteers Needed!

Throughout September (and the rest of the fall season) our desire is to continue the process to re-open all our ministries.  In order to do so, we need VOLUNTEERS!  If you are interested in helping on Sundays or in ANY Calvary ministry, please visit www.mycalvary.life/allin to fill out the serving interest form, or to begin the volunteer process.

If you have questions about a specific ministry, contact one of our pastors for more information (www.mycalvary.life/staff).

CALVARY MASK POLICY

 

We ask that everyone joining us for an in-person Sunday service would wear a face mask. Children under the age of 5 are exempt from this requirement. All volunteers and ministry teams will continue to be required to wear masks, except when on stage.

In an effort to protect our church family and guests, with a specific concern for the elderly, young children, and those who are immunocompromised, we are extending our mask wearing requirements as a request to all who enter the building on a Sunday morning.  Our desire is to reduce the risk for these groups, provide an atmosphere where everyone feels safe to attend, and do everything we can to make sure that the church doors continue to stay open.  

If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, we ask that you would continue joining us online for Sunday service for the time being, instead of attending an in-person service, in order to protect those vulnerable groups listed above. As current conditions pose a higher risk to those who are vulnerable, we want to do everything we can to keep everyone safe, and we appreciate your partnership with us in that approach. We know that this is a sensitive issue, and thank our entire congregation for their flexibility and understanding.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to reserve a seat?

No!  Registration for services is no longer necessary.  Seating capacity will still be limited in the sanctuary with social distancing measures in place, so we recommend that you arrive on time each Sunday.  If a service time reaches capacity, we unfortunately will not be able to seat you in sanctuary.  Again, please make an effort to come on time.

(The livestream will be able to be viewed in the gym in Cambridge, and in Ayr the feeds from the sanctuary will be able to be viewed in the Atrium).

Are kids able to stay in the sanctuary?

Kids are always welcome to sit in the sanctuary with their parents!  For the month of September, we will have our Kids Activity Packs available for both services.  

Are nursery or any kids programs available?

Throughout the fall, our goal is to continue to re-open Kids@Calvary.  In September, we will only have kids programs available during the 11AM service.

For September 5, we will have the Kids@Calvary Family Experience for our Sunday kids program.  Registration is not required, but attending will be first come, first served, and space is currently limited.

Will washrooms be available?

Yes, washrooms will be available.

Can we sing during worship?

Yes!! Worship is so important and a key part of our Sunday morning experience.  We want you to be able to participate and enter into worship. 

When singing, we remind you to wear your mask properly.

Yes!  You are more than welcome to continue worshipping with us on Calvary Online.  The Cambridge Campus service will be streamed live on Sundays at 9:15AM and 11AM.
