Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
Next meeting dates: January 29, February 26

Great Music at Calvary presents a Festival of Lessons & Carols on Sunday, December 12 at 4:00 p.m. A favorite holiday tradition based on the traditional service from King’s College in Cambridge, Lessons and Carols celebrates Christmas through word, choral reflections, and congregational carols.

This service of meditative prayer, music and reflection is designed for those in search of hope and healing. These past two years have been difficult for all of us with grief, loss and hardship around every corner. Maybe the holidays are always hard, or perhaps the season does not seem very jolly this year. Calvary's Comfort at Christmas provides a sacred and safe place that will acknowledge loss but serve to uplift us all. Wherever you may be this year, may you find a light in the darkness!

The Sunday Forum meets during the non-pandemic program year and is open to all. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend once these programs resume.
During the pandemic, the Rector and Wardens hold a joint Forum on Zoom on the Sunday following the Vestry Meeting.
Common Ground Series
This speaker series addresses current issues and how they impact the world.
Books & Bites
Books & Bites provides a forum for people to discuss a book that they have read together. They meet on the first Sunday of the month at 9 a.m. during the program year.
Although some of the discussion is book specific, questions that address broader themes provide an entry point for participation by those who had not read that month’s selection.
