At Calvary Episcopal Church, we are pleased to welcome all newcomers to our community. We hope you will give us a chance to get to know you and that you will want to get to know us better. Our congregation is a unique tapestry of friendly and faithful Episcopalians who come from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles. We welcome diversity, and we gain strength, knowledge, faith and joy from one another.

Our times of service are on Sundays: a spoken service at 8:00 a.m. (Holy Eucharist, Rite I) and a service with music at 11:00 a.m. (Holy Eucharist, Rite II). The nursery is open on Sunday mornings during worship services and during the Christian Education hour.

You’ll find many opportunities to be involved here. We have numerous committees, groups, outreach ministries, missions abroad and other activities that will allow you to grow in fellowship and put your faith into action. Our preschool’s reputation is excellent and our EYC is one of the area’s most active youth groups. New voices are always welcome in our youth and adult choirs. From Usher Committee or Altar & Flower Guild, Episcopal Church Women and the Needlepoint Guild to our community outreach initiatives and annual mission trips to Costa Rica, you’ll find a rewarding area where your talents and time will be valued and well-spent.
