Dear Congregation, 

As you are probably aware, on Sunday, March 29, our President extended the current social distancing and stay at home order until April 30, 2020. This limits groups to ten people or less. If you are not sure about this, or maybe are not clear, I would like to use the words of the Apostle Peter: 2 Peter 1:13 – “I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,” 

As of yesterday, the Rialto Unified School District will be closed for the remaining 2019/2020 school year. Calvary Chapel Christian School and Preschool will remain closed with a tentative re-open date of May 4. We will update this information if changes occur. 

Preschool is considered an essential service in some cases and is available for workers employed in essential services. Our School is offering modified daycare for students with parents working in essential services. 

All church services and studies will continue to be closed, including the following: Sunday mornings, Wednesday evening services, Men's, Women's, Singles’, Royal Rangers’, Rangerettes’, Seniors’, Young Adults’, Café, and Bookstore. 

"Enjoying Marriage Seminar" has been postponed and has not been rescheduled at this time. You can still sign up through the Church App or the website and you will receive updates on the dates of the classes. 

The Church Office is open and Pastors are available. All gatherings are on hiatus, but we are still here to love you and help you! If you need prayer or want to talk, please drop by or call the church office at (909) 820-7300. 

This is an excellent opportunity to download the Calvary Chapel Rialto APP or connect with us on Facebook, Instagram or our website at 

For the first time in our nation's history, churches in the United States will not be meeting for Palm Sunday, Good Friday or the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a Pastor, I say, "Why can't every day be Resurrection Sunday and Taco Tuesday?" Like you, I cannot imagine what it will be like to observe the most significant event of the universe and not be able to gather with God's people to praise, worship and celebrate together. 

The option we have is to live stream the services as we have been doing for the past few weeks.


This Sunday, April 5, at 8:30 am and 10:30 am, I will be sharing a message entitled: 

"Making Sense of Suffering" 1 Peter 1:6-9 

On Wednesday, April 8, at 7:00 pm 

"His Triumphal Entry" Mark 11:1-11 

On Good Friday, April 10, at 7:00 pm 

"Death That Ended Death" Matthew 27:45-54 

On Easter Morning, April 12, at 8:30 and 10:30 am 

"The God of The Living" Matthew 22:23-33 

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25 

In Him, Pastor Terry
