Roof Collapse Update | 01.25.2016

01.28.16 | All Church, Prayer

    First, we’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the prayers, encouragements, and gifts you have sent our way. We can’t put into words how grateful we are for each one of you and what you have meant to the Calvary family.
    Second, we want to keep you up-to-date with everything going on around here.

    As we ventured into work this morning, we discovered that we have a rapidly-developing situation. Some of the updates we gave yesterday have changed, and this will continue to happen. Check back often to keep up-to-date!

    CANCELLATIONS: Due to the current road conditions (and in order to assist our restoration company), Care Mondays are cancelled for tonight (Monday, 1/25).

    We plan for Care Mondays to return on Monday, February 1.

    If Downingtown Area School District has school tomorrow, the Student Center will reopen and be operational as normal (3-6PM).
    We hope to have all of our Wednesday Evening Programs on as usual – but keep checking in with us as plans have to change daily depending on conditions.

    Sunday morning services are taking place in our Gym at 9:30 + 11AM. Be excited because it’s going to look totally different than the Gym you’re picturing right now. To quote Pastor Lee, “You’re gonna love the church you’re gonna get!”

    Since the building is currently under major construction and therefore closed to the public, we’ll keep you updated with many behind-the-scene pictures.

    Many of you have been asking, “How can I help?” With a whole exciting transition in the church building, there are many ways you can help. We’re going to need more volunteers than ever before! Please think and pray about a long-term commitment as a volunteer here at Calvary, whether it be setting up chairs in the gym on Saturday evenings, being a parking lot attendant, serving coffee on Sunday mornings, working with the Tech Team to do audio/visual, being a greeter, serving with the Student or Children’s ministries… you name it – we need you! Email us at with your name, contact information, and the area(s) in which you’d like to serve, and we’ll get you plugged in.

    Thank you again for your support, and for your trust that Jesus will guide us through this difficult time. We’re excited to move forward and begin a new chapter here at Calvary with you and can’t wait to see you on Sunday morning!
