Dear Calvary Family,

The last 24 hours have brought great tragedy to our community. As the fires spread, our staff teams assembled in Boulder and Erie to pray and plan initial steps. We are reaching out to Calvary families that we believed to be immediately impacted. We also connected with our local law enforcement in Boulder and Erie and offered our facilities as emergency evacuation sites for the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. This afternoon local pastors are gathering to mobilize the local church, pray together, and plan any ways the Church can respond collaboratively. 

We know that in the coming days there will be many needs and ways to help. This is our moment in time to love God and love others as His Christ-centered community. If you are in need of help or wanting to offer your assistance please click on the “Contact Us” button on this page.

We will meet in person on Sunday at all three of our campuses and will be sharing any updates then. We will also release an updated Calvary Online service Sunday morning. We serve a mighty God who is ready and willing to give grace and mercy in our time of need. This is our time of need so let us approach the throne of grace together.

We love you, Calvary. We’re praying with you all this morning,

Tom Shirk
Senior Pastor
