We are an historic and growing parish that seeks to engage not only people's hearts, but their minds as well. Our mission is to seek and serve Christ in all persons, and to proclaim by word and example the good news of God in Christ. We offer many ministries to our church, our community, and our world. We would love to have you visit and get to know us!

The warm woods and intimate gaslights of Calvary Church have been the worship home of generations of parishioners and visitors for more than 140 years.
