Blue Christmas Service Monday, December 19, 7 pm (in-person) / Wednesday, December 21, 7 pm (virtual)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
Join us for a quiet, contemplative service of healing and hope, as we hold sacred space together for the heaviness that so many experience this time of year. You - and whatever you're feeling, whatever you're carrying - are welcome.

*PLEASE NOTE: Our wheelchair-accessible lift is currently inoperable and in the process of being repaired. We hope to have it up and running by the 19th, but don't yet have a firm timeline. Please check back for updates.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

The door requires a code so if you're coming and require use of the lift, please call (215-724-1702) or email the church officewell before your visit so we can coordinate logistics.
We acknowledge that Calvary is located on the ancestral homelands of the Lenape people, whose presence and resilience in Pennsylvania continues to this day. We take this opportunity to honor the original caretakers who lived and continue to live on and steward this land, while recognizing the histories of land theft, violence, erasure and oppression that has preceded our presence here.
