COVID-19 UPDATE as of March 20, 2020:
The Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley Board of Elders want to thank each and every one of our church family members who reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado, throughout the United States and around the world in 43 countries. We praise God for you and thank you for your patience as we navigate unprecedented territory.
This past week has been filled with numerous challenges as the Coronavirus continues to dominate the headlines, impact lives and transform communities and routines far and wide. Governments are working tirelessly to turn the tide and they desperately need our prayer as we implore the God of heaven and earth to give them wisdom and direction.
Over the past 24 hours, since our previous update, the Board of Elders (BoE) has continued to receive and process new information, including current mandates and directives from Governor Polis (CO) and the Department of Public Health and Environment, which are impacting groups of 10 or more, schools, business establishments, healthcare providers, churches and more. In addition, the BoE has been informed that additional measures may be forth coming, very soon. These decisions by our governing officials will impede our ability to gather as a group on location at Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley. However, this will not stop us from delivering God’s message via Livestream, ROKU, Apple TV, and Facebook every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. We are also exploring new ways to stay engaged throughout the week. For example, we will be hosting a group Bible Reading and Prayer Call on Wednesday’s at 6:00 p.m. (MT), starting this week, March 25. Below you will find a phone number and access code. Simply dial the number provided, enter the access code and we will be on the phone together. You can expect to see short videos, worship segments, encouraging messages and more on our social media channels as we utilize technology to maintain momentum throughout the duration of this pandemic.
As you know, we have tried to keep you informed every step of the way through emails and video segments. Despite our best efforts to keep our church family together, in person, on location, the BoE has determined that the next course of action will be to move Sunday morning worship services, temporarily, to digital platforms only, effective immediately.
To watch the service this Sunday at 10:00 a.m., simply visit www.CalvaryFountain.com for more details or click on the links below:
Wednesday Bible Reading and Prayer Call at 6:00 p.m. (MT):
- Dial: 515-604-9026
- Access Code: 430194#
In addition, you can select from dozens of teaching segments from our Engage in Truth podcast >>
Although recent directives have limited our ability to gather in corporate worship, on location, other small group activities will continue until further information is available. This includes the T2W Women’s Ministry gatherings on Monday and Wednesdays. Ladies, please connect with Mrs. Karen Mallinger accordingly.
Do not lose hope! We will evaluate this situation regularly and keep you updated as more information becomes available. Let us unite in prayer and push onward and upward in service to the King of kings!
Finally, if you are able to continue to support the work and ministry of Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley, we would be incredibly grateful for your generous contribution. Click here to give online now >>
There are families in need and we are providing assistance in every way we can. Again, we thank you for your prayers and look forward to worshiping with you soon!
We are only a phone call or email away. If you are in need of prayer or assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Even if our offices are forced to operate remotely, we will remain accessible to serve you. May God bless you and may God heal our land!
Michael Snider, Chairman
