2021 bible reading plans: We would like to encourage you to read the bible for the new year.
(1) 5 Day reading the whole bible plan (https://fivedaybiblereading.com/Bible%20Reading%20Schedule%202021.pdf) and
(2) 60 days the survey of the bible (https://www.thenivbible.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/60DayOverview_n.pdf). Creating mutual accountability will help!
Visitations through Zoom or meeting in person: If you are interested, please contact any of the pastors.
Saturday prayer meetings: 7:30am through Zoom.
In-person Sunday Service: For Sunday worship in the gym, we are currently allowing attendance to reach 70 and may at times allow for indoor fellowship. Please bear this in mind as you plan your next attendance. If you or someone in your household is exhibiting symptoms of illness, or if you have participated in activities or travel that would warrant quarantine, please defer your in-person attendance for a minimum of one week.
Streaming Services: While we are trying to make in-person worship possible for everyone, we understand that for some it is best to worship from home. Our weekly Sunday service and our Noah’s Ark message will continue to live stream at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy03f-xMvFxWW1r3mPi9Gpw. We are hoping to expand these and other in-person ministries in late April or early May.
Online Giving: You may now give to CEC electronically via Zelle/QuickPay (Name: Calvary English Chapel, Email: give (at) calvaryec.net or mail it to Calvary English Chapel (730 McHenry Rd. Wheeling IL 60090).

Online service and meetings: We cherish our time together as a church, and our Sunday corporate worship is extremely important. But after carefully considering the health risks to our church and community, and after listening to our church and civic leaders on the matter, the CEC and CPC sessions have agreed to temporarily close the church doors.
During this time, we will continue to worship corporately through a CEC streaming video feed. Bible studies and other group meetings are now also taking shape through Zoom and other online platforms. While its not the same as being together in person, we believe that these means can still provide meaningful nourishment and fellowship.
Many of you have answered the call to pray over this situation. Many have also found ways to serve the body with encouraging words, IT expertise, financial giving, and creative ministries. We thank you all!
Our prayer is that God will mercifully bring an end to the coronavirus pandemic and that his good purposes will be accomplished even during this calamity. We hope to meet together again just as soon as it is safe and possible.
With much love and concern,
