Church At Your HouseFor the next few weeks we will create unique, online-only experiences so that you can be the Church, God's people gathered - right where you are!
Hey There! If you’re new to Calvary and want to connect – We’d love to catch up!
How Do I Watch?
We broadcast our services on the 3 platforms listed above. Whether you watch on your phone, tablet, computer or even your smart-TV, the experience is designed with you - the viewer in mind. Need closed captioning! Great - click below for our instructions.
How Do I Prepare?
Invite neighbors, good friends and those all-important faces from key places in your life! We may not be meeting at physical campuses, but we can still be God’s people gathered in homes.
Setup your TV/device/computer to display one of our online service channels. Test it out and make sure it’s good to go!
Set aside a couple of items for our time of communion together. It doesn’t have to be grape juice or crackers. This time is more about the meaning of communion and experience together. If there are graham crackers and some apple juice, consider it good!
Build-in some time to hang out after the online service with each other. Have some snacks ready and make some space for good conversations.
Collective YTH Resources
This weekly online service is for students in 6-12th grade. Collective Live consists of interactive games and challenges, weekly teaching, and a worship and response time followed by digital small groups. Collective Live airs on YouTube every Wednesday at 6:30 pm
In addition to Collective Live, our YouTube channel will contain additional content such as daily devotionals, live games, and parent content. In order to play live games or comment on videos, students will need an account.
Every day a member of our Youth Staff will post a short video devotional from the calvary reading plan. These daily devotionals can be found on our YouTube channel as well as our campus Instagram pages.
Zoom groups will meet following Collective Live each week, as well as a few other options throughout the week. Links will be provided through Collective LIVE.
Our Instagram channels are designed to be the primary method of communication for our students. We recommend following both the Collective YTH Instagram as well as your campus Instagram. We also recommend turning on post notifications as we will be doing some time-sensitive contests and challenges!
Parent emails are sent out once per week, sometimes more often. If you aren’t currently receiving the Collective YTH parent email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know which campuses email you wish to receive.
Christ in Youth has provided a great app to create meaningful conversations with your kids during this time. Download the convos app and type in the code “family” for some great content.
Our Bellevue North campus also has a Collective Facebook page. This page is designed primarily for parents. Here we post dates, details, and other information for parents specifically.
