Calvary Church is a warm and inviting spiritual community, and our worship services are rich with Scripture, songs, prayer, message, and fellowship. Whether you are a long time member, a visitor to the Arlington area, or are seeking a church community to become involved with, you will find open hearts, open minds, and open doors at Calvary Church, United Methodist, a reconciling church.

On the third Wednesday of every month from October through June, we offer a Taizé Service at 7 PM in the sanctuary. A wonderful opportunity for meditative worship, Taizé offers silence, prayer, and song. For more information about the Taizé community, visit www.taize.fr/en.
Communion Service is the first Sunday of each month. In the Methodist tradition, all are welcome to share in communion. We serve grape juice so that all may partake comfortably, and gluten-free wafers are available for those who indicate that preference to the usher.
For Children During Worship
We offer child care for children ages three and under in the Edith Burke Room (go through the front door of the sanctuary down the hall, turn right, go to the end of the hall to the last room on the right). The service is audible through speakers in this room.
Children who need to move around during the service may go with a parent to the Upper Room (above the main entrance to the sanctuary). The service is audible from this space.
Midway through the service, children gather at the front of the sanctuary with the pastor and worship leaders for the children’s message, and then children ages 3-10 are invited to attend Junior Church in the Milne Room to continue the worship experience. The adult leaders lead the children through an age-appropriate worship service with singing, bible story, offering and prayer. The time is completed with related activities and crafts. A team of adults rotates leadership for Junior Church. (Children in grades four and up are encouraged to stay in the sanctuary with their parents.)
Christmas Eve – We offer a family-friendly service at 5 PM with lessons, carols, and candle lighting.
