How we are going to be the church
during a global pandemic

We can’t go to church, but that doesn't mean we're going to stop being the Church. The Church exists for moments like this. To lessen the health risk for people, we won’t be physically gathering for a while. We will instead be live streaming worship, hosting Bible studies on Zoom, and connecting through email, Facebook, snail mail, and phone calls.

While many of us are at low risk, we want to act out of love for our neighbors who we interact with both inside and outside of Mount Calvary's walls. Please continue to follow CDC and state guidelines for prevention and treatment. Here, you will find everything you need to know about how we will stay in community during this pandemic. Keep checking back here as this will be our main page in keeping connected.

For pastoral emergencies, please call Pastor Tom 563-650-7252.

Connect with us

We will be going live on YouTube and connecting via Zoom regularly through the quarantine for worship, prayer, and fellowship.

  • Worship

    We will be live streaming our worship services Sundays at 9:30 a.m. on YouTube here. This new way of gathering is designed for worshiping from home, whether it's just you or your entire family around a computer, TV, or your smartphone. We will be hosting virtual Holy Communion during our quarantine. Gather whatever you've got at home to represent your Communion elements - bread or crackers, juice or water - whatever you've got! We recommend preparing these ahead of time, so that you can participate with us online. After we are able to meet again, our virtual Holy Communion will transfer back to in-person Holy Communion.

  • Fellowship and Prayer

    We will continue to gather, monitor, and send prayer requests during this time. Join others from the church to pray for Mount Calvary as the Holy Spirit leads. You are welcome to join us for Fellowship and Prayer after worship each Sunday. We will check in with each other, enjoy virtual company, and pray together.

If you are interested in ordering flowers for our altar, please email the church at and place an order with the following information: your name and phone number, the date the flowers are needed (Sunday) and the reason the flowers are given. Acknowledgement of the flowers will be included in the bulletin for that Sunday.

Projects for Kids

Staff and members of Mount Calvary have made a couple of projects for your kids to keep busy, study the Word, and learn about what Easter means for their faith.

  • All-Ages Storytime

    You are invited to All-Ages Storytime via Zoom on Mondays at 10 a.m. every other week.

    In addition, we will host a storytime and conversation around the book Something Happened in Our Town on Thursday, July 9. It's pretty frank about the realities of police violence, but we found it to be appropriate and approachable for elementary level and higher. If you have questions or concerns about whether it would be a good fit for your child, feel free to email out to or

    Here's the summer schedule:

    Monday, July 6 from 10 to 10:30a (All-Ages Storytime)

    Thursday, July 9 from 6 to 6:30p (Something Happened In Our Town)

    Monday, July 20 from 10 to 10:30a (All-Ages Storytime)

    Monday, August 3 from 10 to 10:30a (All-Ages Storytime)

    Monday, August 17 from 10 to 10:30a (All-Ages Storytime)

    These meetings follow the "Faith Five" format:

    - SHARE (highs and lows)

    - READ (a storybook or Bible story)

    - TALK (with your family about the story)

    - PRAY

    - BLESS

    Liz will be sending our usual Sunday School families an email with the link and password the day before in an attempt to keep Zoom meetings safe for our kiddos. If you are interested and don't receive her emails, please email her at

  • Flat JEsus

    Let's invite Jesus on our Journey! We have missed sharing the story of Easter and what it means for our faith to all of our Sunday School kids. So, in the meantime, we'd like to send Jesus to your child(ren). Below you will find a link to picture of Jesus. Have your kiddo(s) decorate, color, scribble, etc. the picture. As our church community cannot come together, we can share with our children that Jesus is always with us. Send us photos of your child with flat Jesus during our time away and we will share the photos via slideshow or something similar. This is such a fun and encouraging way for our kids to see that God is everywhere! You'll be surprised just how much they'll enjoy showing off their masterpiece, who is Jesus Christ. When completed, send to Jenny at

    Download Flat Jesus

    Please note: We need your permission to share photos of your children. Most kids already have this paperwork into us, but if not, you can download it here.
