Welcome to Calvary Church!

 Dear Brothers and Sisters at Calvary,

 We are living in a very unique but important moment.

The situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is constantly unfolding in Grey & Bruce, and we have been monitoring and considering all the information that is coming out regarding Phase 2 reopening from our local health unit and our government. It is important to remember that the world has not suddenly become a scary, isolating place, but that these social distancing and hygienic precautions and phases of reopening are here to stop the spread of this infectious disease

This virus does not discriminate who it infects, but it is especially severe to our aging, and those with heart, lung, and immune conditions. As a multi-generational congregation, our church has many who would fall into these categories.

It is for these reasons that we, as a Board have decided not to reopen for Sunday morning services at this time.

We will meet for our monthly Board meetings at which time we will review and reassess our situation regarding reopening based on revised government/health guidelines and restrictions.

We encourage you to continue to care for one another, your neighbours and friends in need. Pick up the phone and see if our elderly and those with health issues are ok or if they need anything.

 If you are in need, or know of someone who is, please email info@calvaryemc.com or call the church office 519-376-4179 and leave a message. We will be monitoring the email and phone messages and will have someone respond as soon as possible to your requests/concerns/questions. 

We do have a Facebook page “Calvary EMC Owen Sound,” https://www.facebook.com/Calvary-EMC-Owen-Sound  and for members a private group page “Calvary Church.” Please check us out, as we post daily with devotionals, prayer requests and updates.  

We have had folks inquiring about their tithes and offerings during this time. On your computer, to the right you’ll see  a link to Canada Helps (on other devices, scroll to the bottom of this page). It is an online service for our congregants to contribute their offerings. Calvary has been using this service for quite a while now. It is very secure and easy to use. Please note: Canada Helps takes a fee of 3.5%. You still get a receipt for, say, $100, but the church receives $96.50.  Please see our private Facebook page Calvary Church for alternative arrangements.

Let us pray to the Lord,
who is our refuge and stronghold.

For the health and well-being of our nation,
that all who are fearful and anxious
may be at peace and free from worry:
For the isolated and housebound,
that we may be alert to their needs,
and care for them in their vulnerability:
 Amen
