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.
