• There will be two services on Sunday mornings…

 

o Traditional Service at 8:00am, also streamed on Facebook Live @ CalvaryLutheranKC

 

o HeartSong at 11:00am.

 

Due to copyright restrictions for the music, we are unable to stream Heart Song worship services at this time. We are researching the costs associated for purchasing the copyrighted materials so that Heart Song may be streamed in the future.

--With updated guidelines from the CDC and KCMO, masks are not required for those that have received the COVID vaccine. Calvary still recommends wearing masks when inside and/or social distancing is not able to be practiced.

 

--Reservations are not required.

 

--Please feel free to attend each and every Sunday. As noted above, we will also continue streaming the Traditional service on Facebook Live.  A copy of the order of service will be emailed in advance for those attending via Facebook Live @ CalvaryLutheranKC.

 

--Seating will be limited to every other pew. Ushers will do their best to guide you to a pew that provides social distancing between family groups.  Please be considerate to others and keep social distancing in mind when sitting down.

 

--The sharing of peace will be verbal only.

 

--A printed copy of the order of service will be available for the 8:00 service and handed out by ushers as you arrive. A copy of the order of service will be emailed in advance for those attending via Facebook Live.  When leaving, please be sure to take your copy of the order of service, and any other belongings, with you.

 

--Offering plates are available at entry and exit for your convenience. (We greatly appreciate your financial support of Calvary’s continued ministries!)

 

--We recommend entering through the main doors on 75th Street and Exiting through the doors at the end of the hallway, leading to the McGee parking lot.  If you need the ramp at the parking lot to enter the building, please notify church staff ahead of time, and a volunteer will be available to let you in.

 

•--Please continue to follow all social distancing guidelines in the hallway, parking lot, and sidewalks.

 

--Again, if you are feeling sick, are experiencing any symptoms, or have any indication that you may have been exposed to the virus, please withhold attending worship in-person and continue worshiping with us via Facebook Live @ CalvaryLutheranKC.

Communicants return to their pews down the appropriate side aisle.

11:00 AM Service

--Communion will now be served continuous, ‘pilgrim style’ at the front of the church*.

--Sanitizer will be available upon entry and exit of the Sanctuary.

 

--Public gatherings increase the risk of COVID spread. We want to offer the safest environment possible.  Masks protect others in case the wearer is unknowingly infected and does not show symptoms.  Therefore, we are recommending everyone to wear a mask from the point you enter church, until you leave the facility. If you do not have a mask, we will gladly provide one for you when you arrive.  We understand that this recommendation is unpopular for some, but please be courteous and consider the peace of mind and safety of your fellow members who would also like to attend in-person worship.

 

--There will be no childcare available.

 

--Barth Hall West will continue to be closed, so no coffee or donuts available. Sorry! (Areas used by the EEC, including the downstairs kitchen, remain closed for the health and safety of our EEC staff and the children.) Barth Hall East (the fireplace side) is open for Bible Studies on Sunday and can be available for evening meetings (outside of EEC hours), during the week.

 

--The restrooms will be open. Please use sanitizer before using; wash your hands and use sanitizer before re-entering the Sanctuary.

 

--The Sanctuary, Narthex, hallway, and other accessible spaces will be cleaned before each service.

 

The Board of Elders, Calvary leadership, and staff will continue to assess worship opportunities as guidelines and COVID-related data dictates.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the Elders.

 

Our offerings must continue during these unprecedented times. Utility bills must be paid; Calvary’s staff continues to work incredibly hard, earning their salaries; there are still members in need of care. Please continue your offerings through the church website (one-time giving or automatic withdrawals), the GivePlus app, or by dropping it off when you receive Communion. https://www.calvarykc.com/giving/

--Social distancing measures should be taken to the extent possible.

 

--Please see your announcements for information on Sunday School and Bible studies.

 

--The West end of Barth Hall will remain closed. coffee or donuts will not be offered though we are working to see how this can be adapted to bring back.

 

All details provided are in effect as of June 2021.

 

"We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts." Romans 5:3-5.

 

"Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word." 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:  Grace and peace to you. We pray for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. Included in this sections are the updated details regarding in-person worship, Facebook link for online services, Worship Schedule, COVID protocols, and Stewardship/Giving options.

 

This plan has been informed by guidelines issued by KCMO and the CDC, as well as the daily procedures of Calvary’s dedicated staff.  The Board of Elders, Calvary’s leadership, and staff continue to monitor the COVID situation in our community and consider how to safely open up further.  We want to be able to offer in-person worship, albeit in a responsible manner that protects the most vulnerable among us. Please be patient and courteous. There is no single plan that will please everyone.

 

As always, if you are feeling sick, are experiencing any symptoms, or have any indication that you may have been exposed to the virus, please withhold attending worship in-person and continue worshiping with us via Facebook Live.
