Two Weeks to Go!

There are just two weeks left before we return to worship in the Sanctuary at Calvary Church. We will have two services on December 18 (9:00 & 10:45am). Please note that this will be a family celebration service. No classes will meet for children or adults. Nursery is available; preschool age children and older are encouraged to attend the service with their families. If needed, room 250 (Bears) will be open for a limited number of kids.

Construction Update

Things continue to change quickly around Calvary. The wood ceiling panels in the raised seating area of the Sanctuary were recently completed and the back wall has been painted. Carpet installation is also underway. In the Crosswalk, they are hanging and finishing drywall and installing the main entry doors at Entrance A. We praise God for all that is taking place and ask that you would pray for the work to continue on schedule. Begin praying as well for the building inspection, that we would pass and get occupancy in time for our services on December 18.

The internal driveway that runs between the East Beltline entrance and the Bradford Entrance is temporarily closed for construction. It will remain closed for a couple weeks as we redo curbs and adjust to a new traffic layout. When you come in the East Beltline entrance, please plan to make an immediate left and drive around to the South side of the church.

Sanctuary Construction Update

This week there was another exciting development in our building project. The temporary wall in the sanctuary came down and we have a picture of several views of the renovated sanctuary.

But these pictures simply do not do justice to the renovated sanctuary. We invite you to come to an open house on Sunday, October 30 from 2:00-6:00pm where you can walk through and see the amazing transformation for yourself.

We will provide more details about the return to Calvary soon, because if you notice in your bulletin, we anticipate that we have only 10 weeks until we return to Calvary for worship on December 18.  It will be summer 2017 before the kids area and the new community space are completed, but we plan to worship again at Calvary on December 18.

When we return to Calvary, we are going to stay with two services. Our new service times will be 9:00 and 10:45am. In the coming weeks, we will share additional details but we have much to praise the Lord for and to continue to pray for as we now anticipate returning to our building in only 10 weeks.
