SLM Baby Bottle Campaign - ENDS APRIL 11TH!

"Life in Christ...Life in the Womb"

This Sunday April 11th we wrap up our Baby Bottle campaign to support Sanctity of Life Ministries (SLM)! SLM exists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and affirm life in the womb by operating NOVA Pregnancy Help Centers of Fairfax and Alexandria. They offer compassionate support, education, and free medical services to those who face challenging pregnancy decisions. 
 
Please remember to bring all baby bottles to CCRS on Sunday April 11th! All are encouraged to continue to pray for the women who face unplanned pregnancies in often daunting circumstances, that they might bravely choose life for their babies. Your spare change and cash will help these women receive free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parent classes, counseling and other support. 
 
Just because our current efforts has ended, you can always give online and learn more about this local ministry at www.slmgetinvolved.org/donate. Be sure to select "Calvary Chapel, Reston Station" in the donation form! More details for the donation are available below:

“Your Place On The Wall” Conference - April 16 & 17

Calvary Chapel Lynchburg is inviting all for a conference on April 16th and 17th at CC Lynchburg. This is a hands-on, workshop-based conference.  It is designed to equip each member of the Body of Christ for serving the Lord in the church.  The workshops will include areas of service such as outreach, leading a prayer meeting, children’s ministry, church finances, and more.  Due to the distance, those who are going will need to have their own mode of transportation.
 
Please follow this link for further information.

COVID Precautions (Updated 4/2/2021)

Ever since we first reopened for in-person Sunday services, knowing we could not eliminate all possible Covid-related health risks, we have taken various steps to reduce those risks (as well as to comply with related mandatory guidelines). Measures we have taken to lessen the risk of Covid transmission include:
 
- Temperature checks on arrival
- Hand sanitizer stations
- Reduced number of seats to help increase spacing, and setting up chairs so families, couples, and individuals can be seated consistent with distancing guidelines
- Providing masks for those who need them
- Signs to remind all of us of these and other simple ways we can work together to reduce infection risks out of love for God and one another
- Encouraging all to keep the doorways and hallways clear so others can more easily maintain social distancing when moving through the building
 
We are continuing to livestream and record our Sunday services so those who have symptoms that might reflect Covid infection, as well as any who prefer to postpone in-person gatherings, can still participate remotely.
These safety measures remain in place for the time being. However, as of 4/2/2021, we will no longer require advance RSVPs to attend our worship service.
 
To facilitate these precautions and modified seating arrangements, we still ask everyone who attends in person to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before our service begins.  
This will give those checking temperatures sufficient time so that no one feels rushed.
It allows the ushers more time to help everyone get seated.
It limits in-person and on-camera distractions once the service has begun.
 
Whether you join us in-person or "virtually," all of us at CCRS appreciate your continued prayers as God leads us through these challenging times!

Listen to Conference Teachings

Listen to the recordings of the 2018 Teach the Word conference with David Guzik. If you are interested in learning how to teach the Bible to others, whether in a small group, Adult Bible Fellowship class, one-on-one, in a larger group setting, as a part of a ministry in which you're involved, or even in leading your family in studying God's Word, you'll love these teachings.  During the conference, David shared practical and applicable ways to teach the Bible in whatever venue the Lord has set before you.
