Posted by Calvary Baptist Church - Tyler, Texas on Thursday, April 30, 2020

Dear Calvary Family,

Since the governor’s stay-at-home order is expiring on May 1, we are excited to share a plan for us to meet together again for worship. Of course we have to temper that excitement and coordinate a measured response so we can continue to protect one another from the ongoing risks associated with COVID-19. With that in mind, we encourage each family to make careful decisions about the timing and the extent to which you will return to church. 

Beginning this Sunday, May 3, the worship center will be open for corporate worship at 10:15. The building has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, and we will take other precautions like propping doors open to reduce the touching of door handles, setting up hand sanitizer stations, and maintaining a safe distance between families. According to the state’s guidelines, we must maintain at least 3 empty chairs between individuals or families from separate households and we must leave every other row empty.

During this reopening phase, the building will only be open for Sunday morning worship. There will be no Bible study classes, small groups, or children/youth ministry activities. There will also be no childcare services, including nursery, children’s church, and extended care. We believe the safest place for children is to sit in church with their families at this time.

If you plan to attend in-person worship, we ask you to follow these protocols:

  • Anyone who has shown signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19 infection should NOT attend church or be among the public. 
  • Anyone in a high-risk population (including those 65 or older and anyone with pre-existing health conditions) is strongly encouraged to stay home and participate in worship through our livestream on Facebook or www.calvarytyler.org.
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently.
  • Maintain at least 6 feet distance from anyone not in your household.
  • Do not touch anyone who is not in your household.
  • Consider wearing a cloth face covering to reduce the spread of germs.

We admit this is strange, and a bit sad, to have so many protocols in order for us to meet together. On the other hand, we are thrilled to finally get back to meeting as a family to worship our Lord, and we look forward to seeing some of you this Sunday. Please do not feel obligated to return to church this week if you are uncomfortable with it. We will continue streaming our service live on Facebook and www.calvarytyler.org so you can participate remotely.

We love you, we’re praying for you, and we can’t wait to see you again.

-MISSIONS-

The call to missions is a vital part of CBC’s overall strategy for preaching the Gospel to the entire world. We support mission work around the globe in various capacities.
 
In 2014 we commissioned a missionary couple to go to the Pacific Rim where we have adopted an Unengaged Unreached People Group (UUPG). In 2017, the Rice Mountain People were officially moved from the UUPG list to the UPG (Unreached People Group) list by the International Mission Board of the SBC. Calvary continues its mission to the Rice Mountain People in the Pacific Rim today with the goal of removing them from the UPG list. You can read the story of our vision trip in the SBTexan. Just Click here or on the magazine icon to your left. 
 
Added to this work, CBC has also adopted four IMB missionary families who serve in various locations around the world; and a little closer to home, one of our own is serving as a chaplain in the U.S. Army. We have another family in our church family actively involved in mission work in Montenegro. They plan on making this a full time mission endeavor in 2020. Check out their website at www.gtomn.com.  If you would like to financially support this mission endeavor, click here.
 
As for local mission work, we’re involved in the Jesus Closet Ministry,  sharing the Gospel with the homeless, transient and marginalized people of Tyler through supplying their need for toiletries. 
 
Here are ways you can be involved:
1.  Help collect travel size toiletry items and place in the bin located in the missions corner of the Worship Center.
2.  Help pass out items and share God’s love on Saturday mornings at 8:45.
3.  Pray that this ministry will be used to encourage those in need as well as provide an opportunity to share Christ’s hope.
4.  If you are not able to be involved on Saturday mornings, but would still like to serve using your time during the week, contact the church office at 903-939-3200.
 
Check out the  Facebook  page for continuous updates, pictures of the ministry and testimonies.
