Worship is a way of seeing the world in the light of god.
– Abraham joshua heschel
SUNDAYS @ 11:15 am
Joining us in person? Masks are optional. Joining virtually? CLICK HERE to connect (via Zoom).
All are welcome - in person or virtually - for informal and inclusive worship. Please use the 48th Street entrance* (the chapel is up the stairs as you come in; see below for details about accessibility).
Worship at Calvary is rooted in the Christian (and specifically Methodist) tradition, but open to broader expressions of faith and spirituality. Come as you are. Dress as you wish.
We are committed to the use of inclusive and expansive language in worship when referring to God or humanity. We celebrate the diversity of human identity, experience and expression, and acknowledge that no language can adequately describe God or our experience of the Divine mystery. We recognize the power of language to exploit and exclude, and so aspire to use language for God and humanity that affirms and liberates.
We typically celebrate Communion the first Sunday of every month. At Calvary we share an open table, which means that all are invited to participate. Period. We gather in a circle around the altar table, and even if you aren't comfortable receiving the elements for whatever reason, you still belong in the circle. God's welcome is wide, and God's love is without condition!
We also hold a variety of special services throughout the year, including regular services of healing and wholeness and occasional outdoor services (weather permitting) at nearby parks during the summer. Check out the Calendar for the latest details.
CHILD CARE / CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING: NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
A nursery for ages 0-5 is available, as needed, during a portion of worship. Calvary Kids for older children also meets most Sundays. Both programs are staffed by Calvary volunteers, in keeping with our Safe Sanctuaries policy. Children remain upstairs for the first half-hour or so of worship and then head downstairs for the rest of the service (on Communion Sundays, older children remain upstairs for worship, and nursery-aged children come back upstairs to participate in Communion).
