COVID-19 Response

Dear Calvary family and friends,

As leaders of Calvary Assembly, we have been closely monitoring the events associated with the status of the COVID-19 situation.  We trust in the Lord to navigate us through these times as we continue to love Him, value people, and reach the world. Refer to the questions below for helpful information.  

Standing with you,
Pastor John Bechtel

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q:  DOES CALVARY CURRENTLY HAVE ANY IN-PERSON SERVICES OR PROGRAMS?
A:   Yes!  Every Sunday morning, we currently open our doors for two live services: 9:30am and 11:00am.  
We have a safe, clean atmosphere where you are able to socially distance while you worship.  Face coverings required.
However, due to the NJ State limit of 150 people for an indoor gathering,  you must reserve your spot at: CalvaryAssembly.church/register if you are planning to attend.  Thank you!
(* Note: During the 11:00am service, there is also a socially-distanced Kidz Church in our Fellowship Hall, for grades K-5th!)
