Covid-19 Response May 27, 2020

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

Is there any question but that we are living in turbulent times? How do you navigate to turbulent waters? Join us at 7 PM online as I continue the series, “Discernment for Turbulent Times” from 2 Thessalonians 2. We need to see through the fog and navigate through the storm without getting lost or off course.

That’s why I encourage you to watch this evening’s message online at 7 PM.

We are stronger together, let’s stay connected and growing spiritually.

Serving in Christ,

Rich Jones, Senior Pastor

Covid-19 Response May 23, 2020

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

The one thing that remains the same through this current crisis is that everything keeps changing. To navigate through turbulent waters, you need to keep your eyes fixed on that which never changes – He is the One who was and is and is to come. He is our Rock, our fortress in the storm.

I am beginning a new series this weekend through Revelation so we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

I encourage you to watch services online this weekend — and invite a friend.

Send an email to a friend with a link to our website. This is an extremely important message. I am praying that God will use it to awaken spiritual revival and bring a hunger for the deeper things as we draw nearer to the latter days.

All Services will be live-streamed only this weekend – at regularly scheduled service times.

The President held a news conference on Friday and called upon governors to open churches in every state. It is unclear what impact that will have in our state. However, we will be careful and cautious regarding establishing a plan for opening the church. Our main concern is for the health and safety of everyone in our church and community. I am also concerned that we be very thoughtful in the process of opening the church, so we maintain our witness to the world. Our witness is mission-critical. We certainly do not want the world to see the church as the cause of spreading the virus.

We will continue to adapt as circumstances change. Please stay tuned for further updates.

I am so thankful we have the technology to continue teaching God’s word and strengthen the church. To stay connected, I encourage you to….

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

You may have seen in the news that President Trump held a press conference earlier today and announced that churches will be deemed “essential places that provide essential services” and called upon governors to allow churches to open their doors immediately.

Our pastoral team will be working on a plan for how our church will respond. Calvary Chapel Worship Center is not prepared to open our doors this weekend. However, I will be making announcements sometime next week to communicate the schedule and plan for our church to open.

This weekend, all services will be live-streamed according to the usual schedule. The doors will not be open for general attendance.

When we do open the church for general attendance at services, there will be many precautions put in place. The church will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, and hand sanitizer will be readily available. There will be social distancing in the sense that family groups can sit together with distance around them.

We expect that the overall attendance will be light as people naturally are cautious and careful about opening things up too quickly. We certainly encourage those who are older and/or immune-compromised to continue watching services online rather than attend in person. If you are not feeling well, please also remain at home and watch services online.

We will not be serving meals right away. We will make meals available when conditions indicate it is safe to do so.

The situation is constantly changing, so we will continue to communicate with every step as we work through the process of becoming fully operational again as a church. Meanwhile, all services will continue to be available online and we encourage anyone who does not want to risk exposure to the virus to watch services online.

Thank you for your prayers as we continue processing through these extremely challenging times.

Serving in Christ,

Rich Jones, Senior pastor

Covid-19 Response May 20, 2020

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

This evening we continue our Wednesday series on I &II Thessalonians. In these chapters, Paul gives some of the pillars of prophecy of latter-day events. Times of crisis require discernment. Those who are spiritually wise will have spiritual discernment. We need to see through the fog and navigate through the storm without getting lost or off course.

That’s why I encourage you to watch this evening’s message online at 7 PM. The message tonight is called, “Discernment for Turbulent Times” from I Thessalonians 4-5. They were eagerly watching and waiting for the return of the Lord, but they needed spiritual discernment. That’s the need of the hour. Join us this evening as we gain discernment for these turbulent times in which we now live.

We are stronger together, let’s stay connected and growing spiritually.

Serving in Christ,

Rich Jones, Senior Pastor

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

Jesus gave the signs of the times then he said to watch and be ready, “You don’t know the day or the hour.” How do you be ready?

That’s what I’m speaking on this weekend from Matthew 25, “Be Ready for Things to Come.” This is a very important message that has everything to do with how we should live while we watch and wait.

That’s why I encourage you to watch services online this weekend — and invite a friend.

Send an email to a friend with a link to our website. Just copy and paste this link: www.calvaryhillsboro.org

This is an extremely important message. I am praying that God will use it to awaken spiritual revival and bring a hunger for the deeper things as we draw nearer to the latter days.

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

This evening I’m beginning a new Wednesday series on I &II Thessalonians. In these chapters, Paul gives some of the pillars of our understanding of latter-day events. Jesus said to be ready and to watch for the signs of the times. But if we are to watch and wait, we must understand what to watch for; we need to understand what will take place in the latter days.

That’s why I encourage you to watch this evening’s message online at 7 PM. The message tonight is called, “The Life that Pleases God” from I Thessalonians 1. They were eagerly watching and waiting for the return of the Lord and they were living the life that pleases God. That’s the need of the hour. Join us this evening as we learn what it means to live with full conviction, waiting for the return of Christ.

We are stronger together, let’s stay connected and growing spiritually.

Serving in Christ,

Rich Jones, Senior Pastor

COVID-19 Response May 6, 2020

Dear Calvary Chapel family,

God is doing something in this crisis; your life is not on hold. God always brings purpose out of troubles.

Paul spent almost 2 years in quarantine. You think this quarantine is long, can you imagine 2 years of this? Paul wasn’t quarantined because of a virus; he was under house arrest in Rome. But through it all, God revealed His purpose in Paul’s life. God always brings purpose out of troubles and difficulties and He will do it again.

I encourage you to watch this evening’s message online at 7 PM. I will continue the series, “God’s Purpose in Quarantine.” I’m excited to share God’s heart from these powerful verses in 2 Timothy 1, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind.”

We are stronger together, let’s stay connected and growing spiritually.

Serving in Christ,

Rich Jones, Senior Pastor
