Dear CMBC Family,
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we walked together through these past two weeks, gathering as the church from inside of our homes. This Sunday, August 30, our building will reopen for services. We would like to encourage you to please wear a mask from your vehicle up until you are seated in your pew, and at any time you are moving through the building. Also, a reminder to practice social distancing of 6 ft when able, and to move briskly through the foyer and public spaces to converse and fellowship outside of the building following services. And as always, if you are experiencing any sign of illness or have family members who are, please worship from home through our livestream service.
Our service on Sunday will begin at 9:00 AM in the building (livestream on YouTube), followed by an ABF hour from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. There will be 3 ABF options in the building and signs will be posted to guide you to your preferred ABF destination.
Sustained by His Steadfast Love,
Chris Lenhart, Lead Pastor
Calvary Monument Bible Church

Greetings CMBC Family,
Psalm 121:1-2 (ESV) I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Thank you for bearing with us through the ups and downs, challenges and opportunities that have come in light of COVID-19. It was great to have over 300 of you participating in our services last week, whether online or in the building, the opportunities to love, serve and grow are ever before us. Reflecting on our time together last week, and in light of the new order from the PA Department of Health Secretary, we would like to encourage you to wear masks as you move in, through and around the building. Once seated, either in service, or in ABF, please feel free to remove your mask. We will continue to practice social distancing throughout the building, and will be vigilant in our attempts to improve our efforts at it each week.
We are reserving the section of the sanctuary, nearest to the windows, solely for our most vulnerable population, those who would prefer to wear masks throughout the entirety of our services. We invite those who intend to sit in that section, to please park in the back parking lot, nearest to the windows, and inform our ushers of your desire to be seated in that section of the sanctuary. We encourage those remaining in masks, who have a desire to participate in an ABF to remain in the Sanctuary for ABFs where social distancing standards can be more easily applied. Again, we appreciate all of your help with this as we work together to love and care for a broader population of our congregation in our building on Sunday mornings.
Thank you for your grace, compassion and understanding as we continue to climb together,
Pastor Chris Lenhart
