A Gift for the Century
We are hopeful to continue being a beacon of God's grace through serving our community into the next 100 years. To help us do that we are endeavoring on a capital improvement project to repair deferred building maintenance. By so doing we are confidant Calvary will keep standing and shining for years to come.

Calvary's 100 Year Celebration Initiatives
At Calvary we are excited to be celebrating our centennial. Calvary is committed as a church to the core values of Christian Worship, Spiritual Growth, Passionate Service, that is open to all. Throughout our 100 years of ministry we have done our best to live these out in a variety of ways, in 2022 as we celebrate this milestone year we are inviting everyone to join us in one or more of our celebration initiatives focused on living out these values.
Centennial Worship Service
On September 18th 2022 Calvary will celebrate its centennial year by worshiping God together. Bishop Mark Webb of the Upper New York Annual Conference will be our guest preacher. We will be joined in worship by former Calvary Pastors, and continue our celebrations with a luncheon following service.
More information coming soon.
Reading the Bible In a Year
Starting January 16th, we will begin reading the bible over the course of 365 days. Weekly readings and reflection questions will be posted in our Midweek message to guide our Bible reading journey. You can do the reading on your own, or you can join one of our two discussion platforms to share with others. You can join a discussion group with Pastor Drew on Sunday mornings at 11:30 via Zoom or in person. Or you can join Kelly Young in a Facebook group where you can share insights with others on the message board. This spiritual practice is meant to be devotional and low key so do not fret if you can't meet on Sundays or complete all the reading. Bible 365 link
