CMV @ HOME ONLINE ACTION PLAN

Though we find ourselves in the midst of this global crisis, we are confident that God is fully in control! Corrie Ten Boom once said, “There is no panic in heaven. God has no problems, only plans.” We wholeheartedly agree! Through much prayer, we believe God has given us a plan to be an online church for as long as necessary. We are here to serve you and hope what we’ve written here, answers some of your questions.

HOW DO I GROW CLOSER TO GOD?

God hasn’t changed! He cannot be quarantined and is ignoring all social distancing guidelines! Draw near to God and He will draw near to you! Check out our website at www.calvarymv.com and click on “60 Minutes Guaranteed to Change Your Life.” Nothing can compare with spending time with the Lord in prayer and Bible reading.

HOW CAN WE HAVE CHURCH IF WE CAN’T GO TO CHURCH?

The Church isn’t a building, it’s a group of people who love Jesus Christ. It’s not something we do, it’s something we are. So even when we’re not together, we can be the church together! Worship together with us online! You can livestream both of our Sunday Morning Services at 9am and 11 am. Use the livestream thread during our Wednesday Night Service at 7:00pm to interact with us! All services are available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CalvaryMV/ and on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/CalvaryMV/featured.

The Bible says, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy”, and that’s our heart for you! We miss seeing all of your faces, so it would be great if you could take a picture of your gathering and post it on Facebook or Instagram with #cmvathome. If you have any questions for us, please contact the church office at 801-756-1446 or email us at info@calvarymv.com.

HOW DO I LEAD CHURCH IN MY HOME?

The Holy Spirit will lead each one of us in different
ways, but the following are some suggestions we hope will be a help to you!

Watch the service together! Wear your “Sunday best” or just wear your best pajamas! Sing along with the worship team. There will be time for prayer in the worship service, so we invite you to pray with us or have communion with your group!

Remind each family member to get their Bibles, follow along with the message and encourage notetaking. Try having a time for questions and answers with your group after the online service is over and choose someone to close the time in prayer. If you think we can help you in any way, please reach out to us. We are here to serve you! Contact the church office at 801-756-1446 or email us at info@calvarym.com.

HOW CAN WE AS A CHURCH STAY CONNECTED?

Reach out to each other via text and social media to encourage one another. We also suggest that you to call each other, share prayer requests and pray for one another. It can be very uplifting to hear a friend’s voice! And don’t forget, many people really appreciate getting cards in the mail.

We have set up a virtual conference room for our YIG (Junior High and High School) on Houseparty. To gain access to Houseparty, download the App at The App Store or you can go to www.houseparty.com . We also have a virtual conference room for our Y|A (Young Adults) on Zoom. Our Zoom Room can be accessed by downloading the Zoom App from The App Store.

We really want to help the whole church family to stay connected, so we have created a Facebook Community Group called “CMV-CONNECTION” This is a great place for you to interact, post Bible verses, and share the Christian music that has encouraged you personally! We’ll be adding your favorite songs to the church’s Spotify playlist! Music is powerful, and the song that blesses you may bless others! Download the Spotify App and type in “CMV QUARANTUNES” in the search bar, or use this direct link . If you feel there is any way that we can be of help to you, please contact us at 801-756-1446 or info@calvarymv.com.

” I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:3-6
