A Statement on Covid-19 from Calvary Baptist Church

A Statement on Covid-19 from Calvary Baptist Church: Your Health and Well-Being Is Our Concern

THE SITUATION

The coronavirus pandemic presents unique challenges for participating in worship, while protecting each worshipper. The safety and well-being of members of the Calvary Missionary Baptist Church and the surrounding community are our top priority. With this in mind, we are taking proper health precautions as recommended by the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, and the State of Utah

The Governor of Utah has requested that community organizations limit public gatherings to less than 100 people. 

OUR RESPONSE

All Saturday Activities and Sunday Worship Services are CANCELED.

This includes choir rehearsals, play rehearsals, meetings, 8:00am and 11am worship services. The building will be closed. We will broadcast sermons from Pastor Moses and additional announcements on our YouTube channel on Sunday at 11:00am. Please tune in for important information.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often. Wash for at least 20 seconds, and make sure you are cleaning between your fingers and under your nails. 
  • Avoid shaking hands, especially with those who appear to be ill. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible. 
  • Disinfect shared surfaces. 
  • Stay home when you are sick 

We encourage all members and attendees alike, to take any signs of illness seriously and seek proper medical attention as needed.

WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL CARE

Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms. If they feel you should be seen by medical personnel we request that you call ahead to the health care center where you will be going so they can take precautions and not potentially expose other patients to the virus. 

Treatment for this virus is like treatment for other respiratory illnesses. There is no vaccine or cure, so health care professionals treat the symptoms as best they can.

Because we are a church with many members, some whom are more vulnerable than others, it is in these times that we must continue to remain prayerful, vigilant and offer support when and however we can.  As it is written, “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” As we continue to let our light shine in the midst of Zion, please continue to serve and offer your time, talent, and resources, where appropriate.  We ask that you remember your financial obligations by considering to utilize the Givlify app to send monetary donations.  

My beloved Brothers and Sisters, may we keep the faith and always remember who is in control. As the Psalmist David stated, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein.”

Be encouraged!
