Sunday Worship 

Calvary offers two in person and one online service weekly. There is a 9 a.m. service and an 11 a.m. service. The 11 a.m. service is also live online. The flow, hymns, and liturgy are traditional United Methodist for each service and Holy Communion is offered each Sunday at 9 a.m.

The atmosphere at Calvary is warm and friendly.  We are glad you’ve chosen to worship with us!  

In order to keep one-another safe the following guidelines are being observed:   

Dress – We encourage comfortable clothing. People can dress in attire from casual to more formal.

Parking in the church’s lot is generally limited.  Parking is available during Sunday service next door at Melwood Resources (750 23rd St S, Arlington, VA 22202) and on the street. If able bodied, please consider walking or biking (a bike rack is available on premises).  

Nursery and Childcare.   We are pleased to offer both a nursery and children’s Sunday school during worship. Parents may drop off their child at the entrance to the children’s ministry area (located by the staircase in our parking lot).  If parents wish to worship with their children they are welcomed to do so.  Lastly, children may leave worship, with the Family Ministry Director, following the Children’s Moment.  Children are picked up at the preschool (Calvary Children’s School) entrance which is located by the staircase in our parking lot.   


Our Current Worship Schedule:
9 a.m. Sanctuary Worship with Holy Communion
11 a.m. Online & Sanctuary Worship with Holy Communion the first Sunday of the month

We serve

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is currently being served every Sunday during the 9 a.m. worship and the first Sunday of the month at both the 9 a.m. and the 11 a.m. service.  After the pastor officiates the sacrament, we offer multiple ways to receive the elements to accommodate different levels of comfort.

We Welcome you

What to Expect During Worship

Our Vision is to make God’s love real, with Calvary’s worship opportunities, buildings, and programs accessible and welcoming to all persons. We welcome those seeking God’s comfort, guidance and healing in a warm and welcoming environment.

No Pressuring

First, we promise you won’t be embarrassed or pressured to give money or to join the church, so relax and focus on experiencing worship.


We’ll be singing songs to express our love for God. The words are within the bulletins.


You may also see Christian sacraments such as baptism or communion, and we’ll be sure to explain what they mean so you won’t feel left out. Holy Communion is open to all people, you need not be a member of any church to participate.

The Message

Our pastor will share a relevant message (click here to hear recent sermons), to enable you to discover new truths that help you see life from God’s point of view. We encourage you to use your Bible or the pew Bible to follow along.

How Long?

We’ll be done in about one hour so you’ll be ready to go pick up your little ones, socialize at our Coffee Hour, meet new friends for lunch, or just head home.

Be Comfortable

You’ll see all sorts of attire at our services. Many people wear “business casual,” however a number of others will wear jeans. We invite you to come dressed comfortably for you.


There is a special children’s moment at the 11 a.m. service.  Children are invited to stay seated with their family during this message but are invited to join the Children’s Sunday School, afterwards.  Children may be taken to the children’s ministry area (located near the black stairs off the parking lot) for the 9am service.
