Dear Calvary Castle Rock Family,
We pray that you are all strengthened and encouraged in the word of God as we face these trying times. We are praying with you and for you and we covet your prayers for us.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
Here are the most recent updates for you on some changes taking place at Calvary Castle Rock after the recent announcements from our Federal and state governments today.
NEW INFORMATION as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020
- Our pastors ARE AVAILABLE & OUR OFFICES ARE OPEN! If you need prayer please call (303) 663-2514 or email us. We are ready to encourage and serve you! You can also stop by the church, we would love to see you.
- We were prepared to hold multiple services this weekend “IF” the gathering number dropped to fifty, unfortunately it is our understanding that the Governor is going to drop the number to 10 by the end of this week to come alongside of what our President has asked of the nation. That makes meeting together impossible at our fellowship. If our Governor does that then we will have weekend services online at calvarycastlerock.com. Stay tuned for more information about how to watch.
- We ask that you be in prayer for our Resurrection services. We are exploring options to have service in our parking lot where we transmit to your car radio. Weather permitting we will set up a stage and do a live service where you can listen in your car.
- For now all small groups and ministries gathering at the church are postponed.
- You will also be getting weekly updates from me as well as devotions from the staff. We are going to stay in communication with the body as well as being proactive to encourage you in the word.
The leading public health experts (CDC) are telling us that swift action can greatly help reduce the spread of this aggressive virus. We are making these temporary changes to do our part to best help this process. Our goal is always to protect the safety and health of our church family and community.
We need to hear and receive God’s Word more than ever before. Remember God is bigger than COVID-19 and God is not surprised by any of this. We will continue to gather and worship in ways that look different than the traditional ways of doing Church. I believe the Lord wants us to think outside the box of how we do church at this time. We are praying and believing God to move in powerful ways through this to build his church and build His kingdom.
Our offices are OPEN and pastors are available to pray and serve you. You can email us through our staff page or call (303) 663-2514
This is a time to show great courage and trust God and look for opportunities to reach out to others in our fellowship with a phone call to see how they are doing and then pray together. This is also the time to be on the lookout to see if you have a neighbor in need and if you cannot meet that need then call the church so we can help you meet that need in the name of Jesus.
Psalm 112 – speaks of the person who fears the Lord.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
Lord bless you and keep you,
IF YOU ARE AT RISK
If you are a member of our body and you are elderly, immune-compromised and are unable to get groceries for yourself in Castle Rock, we are here to serve!
Call (303) 663-2514 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW TO HELP IN OUR COMMUNITY
We desire to continue to be a light and witness in our community.
As Coronavirus is impacting our community, our neighbors in need are feeling the impact even more than most of us. Help & Hope Center is doing everything they can to provide the immediate assistance they need. They are also preparing for increasing demand as the economic impact of Coronavirus will certainly affect workers and local businesses.
The Help & Hope Center food bank is beginning to see shortages, but they are doing everything possible to continue uninterrupted food distribution to those in need and especially our fixed-income seniors.
Your gift today provides additional resources that are greatly needed to address this situation and helps us respond to their current and future needs.
Monetary gifts are the most effective. Because we can purchase needed food resources at greatly discounted prices, and because stocks are decreasing in our local grocery stores, your financial gift allows us to collaborate with our networks to most efficiently provide food and essentials to the most vulnerable in our community.
