HOUSE TO HOUSE PARTIES

So what do you do during the weekends that your area of town isn't meeting at the church? House to House Parties! Get together with family, friends, and invite the neighbors over to watch one of our four weekend services and enjoy time together. Maybe grill out or grab some tacos in the evening, or how about a group brunch in the morning? Get creative and experience the power of church from house to house - just like Acts chapter 2!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I attend in person?

When we begin our phased re-opening, please take a minute to review the following questions:
  • Have you had a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, and/or fever above 100.4 F in the last 72 hours?
  • Have you been around anyone with these symptoms in the past 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?
  • Do you live with, or have frequent contact with, someone over 65 or has a serious underlying health condition?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, we ask that you participate virtually for the following two weeks. Those that are 65+ and/or those with serious underlying health conditions should consider participating virtually until Phase 3.

What are Calvary Chatt's sanitization efforts?

We are continuing to take steps to keep our buildings sanitized and safe for families:
  • We are following CDC guidelines and will continue to monitor their information.
  • We are letting all of our amazing weekend volunteers know that we will not be shaking hands at the doors of the church.
  • We will also not be shaking hands during the welcome portion of our services.
  • We are performing additional cleaning services across our campus, including sanitizing surfaces even more frequently over the course of the weekends as well as during the week.
  • We are providing additional hand sanitizer stations around our campus.
  • All of these additional sanitization efforts will also apply to our calvaryKIDS area. We already use a freshly sanitized set of toys/activities for each service throughout the weekends.

Will I be required to wear a mask?

We strongly encourage that face masks be worn at the Saturday 4pm service as well as the Sunday 9am service. Masks will be optional for the Saturday 6pm and Sunday 11am services.
We will also be providing masks in the lobby should you require one. Our calvaryKIDS volunteers WILL be required to wear masks during the phases.
