Covid-19 Church Update

Dear Calvary Memorial Church members:

On April 1 Illinois governor Pritzker extended the “Stay at home” order throughout the month as a needed response to our current health crisis. As good citizens and concerned Christians we will, of course, cooperate as fully as we are able by adopting the guidelines that have been established and continuing to creatively remain connected with those who need our help.
To this end we will plan to live stream our worship services on April 5, 12 (Easter), 19 and 26 at 10:30 AM. You can view these presentations on our website at We are working hard to prepare and display these in the most effective manner possible. If you watched our first (March 22) and second (March 29) attempts, I am sure that you noticed a big improvement.
Also, if you need to meet with any of our pastors individually for prayer or counsel, we remain available to do so either over the telephone or in person if you are not currently exhibiting any symptoms of the virus. Also, you can communicate your prayer requests to us through our website and we will include them in our pastoral prayer as we live stream. Covid-19 is a serious problem to be sure, but our God is greater. I know that He will keep us safe and give us the victory as we put our trust in Him.
To those who have given financially during this time, thank you so much for your gracious generosity and faithfulness.  If you haven’t done so as of yet, you can mail your tithes to us (2715 N. Alpine Rd. ~ Rockford, IL ~ 61114) or give online through our website ( Either way, we will make sure that you are credited accordingly.
Please join your pastors in praying that we will be able to resume physically meeting together in some form or fashion in the month of May. Until then, be assured that we miss you all so very much and are remembering each of you in prayer daily.
Sincerely yours,

Pastor David Petty
