Ways to Stay Connected at Calvary

Sunday Worship

We will live-stream Morning Prayer at 10 a.m. Sunday. You will receive another email with instructions on how to access it and with a service sheet to follow along.

Weekday Morning Prayer and Compline

Morning Prayer and Compline are streamed live each weekday on our Facebook page. Morning Prayer begins at 8 a.m. and Compline begins at 8 p.m.

Desert Fathers Blog

Journey alongside our clergy as they explore the wisdom of the Desert Fathers – a group of folks from the 4th and 5th centuries who fled to the wilderness to pursue a life with God and who brought us what we now call Christian monasticism. Follow the blog.

Zoom Bible Study

Zoom is an online tool you can access from your phone, tablet, or iPad that allows you to participate in a discussion while being able to see everyone in the group. The Rev. Amber Carswell is starting a Zoom Bible Study every Tuesday at 7 p.m., beginning March 24. Contact Amber if you want to join this new way of being together.

Have a child or youth at home?

Director of Youth Ministries Gabbie Munn and Director of Children and Family Ministries Hilary Chipley are both working to keep our children and youth connected to God and each other during this time. Look for an email from them this week. If you’re not sure you are on their email lists, contact them to give them your information.

Caring for One Another

We know this can be a scary and anxious time and our pastoral care teams are still hard at work caring for all of us. If you or someone you know is in need of extra help, extra prayers, or just a phone call to check-in, contact the Rev. Paul McLain. And if you would like to volunteer to make grocery/pharmacy runs, phone calls, or send cards during this time, be sure to contact Paul.

 

  • If you’re on Facebook, join Calvary Mondays-Fridays at 8 a.m. for Morning Prayer and at 8 p.m. for Compline.
  • Phone calls, texts, or emails. Log in to Realm or email Ebet Peeples to have her email you a copy of the directory.
  • Make a card (this is a great way to get kids involved!); send a card or note.
  • FaceTime calls. This can actually be a way for a group to connect via video.
  • Set up a Skype Account and make video calls for free! Skype only has a cost if you try to use it like a phone. All you need is a phone number and an email address to set up an account.
  • Set up a Zoom Account and make group video calls for free up to 40 minutes.
  • Google Duo and Hangouts can be used by anyone with a google account (Gmail). Duo is similar to Face time calls and hang outs is like a chat board.
  • Marco Polo app – Download app, create video and then invite others to join you. Enables you to send video updates to contacts. Creates a “Marco Polo” effect because once one person sends an update in the group, it encourages others to send an update.
