Regathering Update for July
New & Noteworthy for July 2020
Hey Calvary Nexus Family,
On-campus Sunday gatherings are temporarily suspended. Our Government has banned singing among gatherings in an effort to minimize the spread of Covid-19. The best evidence available at this time, indicates that large groups singing together likely increase the risk of the spread of the disease. The worship of God in songs of praise and adoration are an important part of our gatherings. Thus, to ensure the well-being of our Nexus community, and to continue to respect our governing authorities, we will temporarily suspend on-campus Sunday gatherings. Granted, the experience of singing while watching services online is less than ideal, however under the present circumstances it is necessary for the well-being of the Nexus community and the community we dwell in.
Neighborhood Groups (NG) (small groups): Staying together while we are separated. Our greatest concern is the overall (spiritual, emotional, physical) well-being of our church community. Engaging in authentic community, whether virtually or physically, is the best path to your health, and the well-being of others. We are here to help you to connect and find a NG that is right for you. New NG are forming and this is a perfect time to engage. If you would like to join a group please check them out here: find-a-group.calvarynexus.org or if you need help finding the right fit please email: Jeremy@calvarynexus.org.
Kids Ministry will continue to provide great online content here.

Our NG’s are encouraged to use the study guide provided weekly by Pastor Bruce. We hope that you find the study guides (and Group Guides) to be a helpful resource as you (and your group) grow in your love for God and neighbors. Remember the study guides are intended to be a flexible tool. You can supplement the questions and study, use additional or alternative materials, and spend as much time exploring a question(s) as you’d like. We’ve discovered that the sections at the conclusion of each week’s Guide relating to loving neighbors outside and inside your group are extremely helpful to affirm, encourage, and create accountability to live the value of loving God and neighbors. We have now added a handy Group Guide that leaders can use as a reference tool during meetings. To download the Group Guide which includes the study guide CLICK HERE. You can also find a button on our Neighborhood Groups page here.
The Neighborhood Group Study Guides are available each Sunday on our website. We send Neighborhood Group study guides in our weekly Calvary Nexus email newsletter. Sign up here to subscribe.
Love Our Neighbor Community Impact: As you know we have been compiling two databases to identify needs and those wanting to assist the needs of others. Whether you’d like to help or need assistance here is a link to the form.
Social Media: Hopefully you’ve been able to follow along with us on Social Media. If you haven’t, check out all the excited content (Devotionals through Philippians from PB, worship nights, prayer initiatives, etc). Check it out here:
Giving and generosity: We know that giving looks different if you aren’t used to giving online. Hopefully you’ve been able to set up your giving as it is secure and fairly easy. We’ve created a brief tutorial for you that is available here in the middle of our homepage. Your generosity will help us to care for the needs of those requiring extra assistance during this health and economic crisis. You can find the giving link here.
We are excited that together we are a movement of Jesus followers devoted to loving God and loving neighbors.
Pastor Bruce Zachary for the Core Pastor Team, Executive Pastor Roger Halcomb, Worship and NextGen Pastor Chris Bague, and Community Life Pastor Jeremy Einem.
