Learning, Living, and Sharing the Good News of Jesus

Calvary Church is a multicultural Christian community that meets in Wyncote, PA. We come from a range of different countries, races, ethnic groups, languages, and backgrounds. Our staff is also multicultural.

We are committed to learn more about Jesus, live out our faith in Jesus, and share the Good News about Jesus. We hope you will feel right at home as you worship with us!

Sunday service times

Sundays at 9 am and 11 am. The services are identical and approximately 90 minutes long. Our total Sunday morning attendance is about 250.

What to expect

Our worship services are contemporary. The worship team has a lead singer, backup singers, and a band with guitars, keyboards, and drums. Other instruments can also be added to the mix. We don’t use hymnals, but we sometimes do sing hymns. All lyrics are projected onto screens at the front of the church.

Singing and worship is followed by brief announcements and prayer, a time for greeting, and then a 30- to 45-minute message.

Communion

We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month. You don’t have to be a member to take part.

Dress down, not up

Dress is mostly business casual. You’ll see jeans and t-shirts, colorful dresses, and a handful of suits and ties.  

Sunday for kids

Children from birth to 12 years old are welcome to participate in our fun (and safe!) Calvary Kids Ministry during each service. You’ll find the Calvary check-in station in the foyer. All children must be registered. (You can even register in advance.) Each child is given a name sticker. You will get a matching sticker that you must present to pick your child when the service ends.  

Calvary Kids check-in opens 15 minutes before each service and closes 15 minutes after the service has begun. If you arrive after 9:15 or 11:15 am, you can take your children into the sanctuary with you.

Nursery

Our large nursery on the lower level is staffed with experienced volunteers. This large room has a rocking chair, a changing table, and plenty of age-appropriate toys for little ones who are crawling and beginning to walk. It includes a live video feed of the service.

You are also welcome to use our mother and baby room on the main floor. This small, private room is equipped with comfortable rockers, a changing table, and a live video feed of the service.

Family Sundays

Family Sundays are held in the months that have a fifth Sunday. On these Sundays, children join their families in the sanctuary for the entire service. The nursery remains open for parents to use. Both the children and youth participate in the service by sharing music, drama, memory verses, and more.

The sermon is planned to be accessible to listeners of most ages. Quiet activities may be provided for younger children to use as they sit with their families.
