Whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith, you are welcome here at Calvary Church -- where we are joyfully and energetically committed to living out Jesus' central messages of love, justice, and compassion. Our community is made up of families and singles, children and seniors, all representing a diversity of ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, interests, and backgrounds. People who come through our doors include visitors, longtime members, associated friends, and seekers open to where God may be leading them.
Calvary is a liturgical church, where we follow specific church seasons and our worship follows a prescribed order of service. We gather together to hear Bible readings and a sermon. Next, we pray together. We then celebrate Holy Communion together and are sent back out into the world. Most of our prayers are found in the Book of Common Prayer.
I’m not Episcopalian. Can I come to your church?
All are welcome, regardless of faith, creed, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age. Not to put too fine a point on it: all are welcome.
I have small children. Can we attend services?
By all means. Calvary is family-friendly, and your children may either remain with you during services or you may take advantage of Sunday nursery care. There are also a number of Sunday School opportunities. Also, nursery care for children three years of age and under is available during the 10:00 a.m. service.
Am I welcome to receive Holy Communion?
All are welcome to the Lord's Table at Calvary Church. If you have questions or wish to know more about Holy Communion, you are welcome to speak to our clergy.

While church membership is not required to be a part of the Calvary community, formal membership for many people provides a greater sense of belonging, accountability, and opportunity for leadership in the parish. Members commit themselves to give of their time, talents, and treasure to support the work of the church, and after a year of membership they are eligible to vote in parish elections. Membership is a wonderful step on a lifelong path of growth toward spiritual maturity, and Calvary clergy are always ready to discuss with you any part of your journey.
