Covid-19 Update 5-9-20
We are looking forward to seeing you on May 10th if you choose to fellowship in person!
As before, we would remind you to follow the CDC guidelines for staying safe when you come to fellowship, and we will do the same as your health and safety is paramount to us.
Covid-19 Update 5-6-20
Per a Kingman Supervisor, the Arizona Attorney General and President Trump
churches can now reopen citing them “essential”. This is a quote from one of the Supervisors:
“If you are a church, you can hold services without a fear of punishment,” Angius said. Even though keeping a distance of 6 feet during the service is recommended, many essential activities violate this rule, she added.
Because of this, we will have our regular service time this weekend, May 10th, ending shorter than normal, with more space between the chairs, enhanced cleaning procedures, and the children’s ministries held in the back yard after the worship.
The leadership and ministry workers will greet you with a BIG smile (albeit with masks) and refrain from hugging or handshakes for your safety. At this time we ask that if you do attend, please keep social distances, wash your hands regularly, and respect others who may want to wear their masks for safety.
We will continue to have our online service as normal for those who are health compromised and/or choose not to attend.
We are looking forward to seeing you all!
Pastor Ron Lee
Covid=19 Update 4-20-20 Dear Family of God!
We are now over 4 weeks in stay at home orders. We have gone onto online services (which is new for us) and also YouTube, pressing in to what God has before us. We have seen amazing reaches through these portals and we praise the Lord for them! That said, we are also missing our family so much and can't wait to be together again!
Covid=19 Update 4-3-20
Dear Family... We are now ordered to 'Stay at Home' per the governor. Even though we are not sure what this will mean for us during our normal hours of business yet, we want you to know we are keeping up with emails and phone calls from our flock. We have begun livestreaming and have been working very hard to upgrade our system for better viewing by you! Please do know that we are here for you.
Covid-19 Update 3-18-20
To our Calvary Chapel Kingman family... Until further notice, we will begin to livestream our church services at the regularly scheduled time and will not be opening the church building for regular services in order to do our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Please join us online on Facebook for worship and the Word at 10:30am on Sunday.
In addition, we are working on the men’s, women's and home bible studies to eventually stream live on Facebook or other avenues so we can continue to study God's Word with you from our own homes. You'll be able to see and hear the teacher and even participate with questions and comments through the Facebook interface.
For those who would like to have prayer or take communion, we will remain open at Calvary on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9-3 until further notice, but will adhere to the ‘10 or less’ directive.
As we have more information, we'll post it here for everyone. Please check in frequently on this website and subscribe if you are able, as we'll be updating often.
What a joy it is to be able to continue as a church family during this time of isolation through the gift of technology! We encourage you to reach out to those in our church family that do not have internet access and maybe invite them to join you during services and studies. At the same time, please keep those gatherings small. The most recent recommendation suggested no more than 10 people together in small group settings.
Even though we may be inconvenienced by these adjustments that all of us are making in our day-to-day lives, I pray that you'll see opportunities to minister to those around you, check up on elderly neighbors and friends... Spend more time with your family in the Word together... Reach out online or via phone & text to encourage and pray for others. This truly is an opportunity for the gospel to be spread in an amazing way.
We are praying for you, the church body, and ask that you all are praying for each other, us and our community.
“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
Update as of 3-17-20: We are keeping track of the and the Presidents suggestions for smaller gatherings and are considering such for this weeks meetings. We would suggest subscribing to our emails below so that you will be contacted with updates...
To the Body of Believers known as Calvary Chapel of Kingman. The current world-wide concern over Covid-19 or this Corona Virus is impacting millions of lives of individuals who will never contract the disease. There is a tremendous amount of attention being given to the shutting down of sporting events, family amusement parks, cruises, and even airline flights. Many are fearful of going to the mall or grocery stores because of the non-stop warnings coming through the major news networks and social media. There are some cities that are highly encouraging any event where a large number of people will be gathered to cancel the event, even including houses of worship.
We want to let you know, that even though we at CCK take the reality of the threat seriously, we are still opening our doors for worship and Bible study this weekend, as well as weekly studies and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. All our scheduled events are still on track to happen at the time and place scheduled. Our staff will welcome you with open hearts, a friendly wave and a warm greeting in Jesus Name but will refrain from handshakes, hugs etc. for a few weeks or announced otherwise.
We have also taken steps to insure our children's areas and nursery are wiped down on a regular basis, along with other areas where people gather.
Our Sunday morning teaching portion of the service is updated on our website regularly, feel free to utilize those through this time.
Therefore, in the light of this issue, please consider these suggestions:
• If you have a compromised immune system, please stay at home
• If you or your child are not feeling well, please stay at home and wait for at least 24 hours after symptoms are gone before coming into fellowship.
• If you or your child have a fever, a runny nose or a consistent cough, please stay at home
• Please faithfully wash your hands on a regular basis and be certain that your children do as well
• Physical contact should be kept to a minimum with those outside your family.
A friendly wave rather than a handshake or an embrace might be the better order of the day. Above all, we do not fear, but we are to use wisdom. Proverbs 4:6 says "If you love wisdom and don't reject her, she will watch over you."
Also “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
