CALVARY CHURCH 

Statement on COVID-19 (updated)

Calvary Church remains committed to seeking and to serving Jesus together; however, love is compelling us to take dramatic action in response to concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). We believe the best way for us to love our neighbors is to follow the guidance of state and local governments in doing all that we can to reduce the spread of the virus.

Calvary’s office is closed until further notice. 

You can contact us at (616) 396-7550 or info@calvaryholland.com if you are in need of assistance. Calvary’s Food Pantry remains open; however, we will need to set up an appointment in order to distribute items safely. 

All public gatherings, including Sunday morning worship gatherings, are suspended until further notice. 

We are providing weekly resources for households and small groups to utilize for weekly “house church” worship and discipleship. If you have not signed up for weekly emails now would be a good time to do so. Contact us at info@calvaryholland.com. Additionally, we invite to follow us on social media. You can find us by searching “Calvary Holland” on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 

Our commitment to follow Jesus in loving and serving our neighbors continues.

If you would like to assist Calvary’s leaders in supporting our mission partners, in addressing the needs of our community, and in caring for the people of Calvary, call or email us at the contact information above. Additionally, we encourage you to care for your geographical neighbors (just remember to take steps to prevent the spread of the virus) and to serve with local food banks and service organizations as you are able. 

God is still in control. 

These are unprecedented times, but our hope has not changed. Jesus Christ is the risen from the dead. Therefore, “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day [of Jesus’ return] approaching.” (Hebrews 10:23-25).
