Starting on May 16th, our outdoor worship time is 9 AM and our indoor & online service is at 11am
In addition to our ongoing 11 a.m. online service, we are pleased to offer two indoor worship options as of May 16th. We offer a service in our sanctuary and an outdoor Sunday worship service using the church parking lot. Parking is available for the 11am service in our lot but street parking and use of the Melwood parking lot are encouraged for attendees of our 9am service.
We require EVERYONE aged 3 and up to wear masks for the safety and protection of others.
Seating will be spaced out for physical distancing – we will sit together in pods/families, with at least 6 feet between each unit.
High touch surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized frequently. We also have HEPA air purifiers in each worship space (sanctuary, balcony, and narthex) in addition to HEPA filters in our HVAC system.
How can I attend?
Everyone who wants to attend in-person must register either online or with paper forms at the entrances. Each week online Eventbrite registration links will be posted to our website and will close on Saturday evenings at 10pm. Walk-ins may fill out printed Registration/Health Forms before entering. Every week space is provided for those who walk-up without having registered online.
Nursery and Childcare. We are pleased to offer both a nursery and children’s Sunday school during worship. Parents may drop off their child at the entrance to the children’s ministry area (located by the staircase in our parking lot). If parents wish to worship with their children they are welcomed to do so. Lastly, children may leave worship, with the Family Ministry Director, following the Children’s Moment. All children must be picked up at the preschool (Calvary Children’s School) entrance which is located by the staircase in our parking lot.
Please allow extra time to arrive. Since the parking lot is closed to vehicles, please park at Melwood (750 23rd St S, Arlington, VA 22202), or on the street. We also welcome walk-ups and have a bike rack for bicycle riders. If you are coming as a family, plan to arrive together. Chairs are provided for every attendee.
Space will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Upon check-in, you will be directed by the ushers to an open space. Though there is ample walking room between the spaces, we want to minimize passing each other.
Comfortable attire is encouraged. Winter is here and it may be cold. Feel free to bring water, coffee, blankets, or other personal belongings to help assure your warmth. Bathrooms will not be available, except in the event of an emergency.
Incase of inclement weather… The service will not go on if it is raining – we will notify all who registered as early as possible, though please check the weather before you leave.
