Welcome to Calvary

Calvary Church, United Methodist, is dedicated to the life and teachings of Jesus and to the mission and ministry of John Wesley. We strive to have our lives reflect the compassion of Christ, affirming the worth, dignity, and gifts of every person as a child of God. We welcome and celebrate diversity, including diversity in age, economic status, ethnicity, family status, gender, physical abilities, sexual orientation, and race. All are welcome and safe here.

Our Mission is to build a nurturing and learning community reaching beyond its walls to serve the people of God.


Help Out at a Habitat Build Day!

September 22nd, 2014

Our next Habitat Build Day is this Saturday, September 27. We will meet at 8 AM at church and carpool to the site in Roslindale; we return to church by 4 PM. We are always encouraging new people to join us for this great opportunity.  We can take up to 10 people and currently have many openings. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member. Youth who are 16 or 17 can participate as long as they get their parents permission on a signed form.

We are not sure the exact work we will be doing but it likely will be painting, plastering, nailing walls or floors.   No previous building experience is necessary, just the enthusiasm to learn and get involved!

If you are interested in joining us, please contact the church office at 781-646-8679.
