A Welcoming Community

in the heart of San Francisco

Calvary is open

COVID UPDATE: We are continuing to monitor city and county health guidelines as we make plans for worship and coffee hour at Calvary. We are grateful for your flexibility and understanding as we do what we can to make gathering as safe as possible. Remember that we will always livestream worship services, so if you have any symptoms that might just possibly maybe Covid, please stay home and get tested. The best defense against Covid is to be fully vaccinated and boostered. The second best defense is to continue to wear masks when you are indoors. Thank you for your understanding and your care for your community.

We continue to encourage vaccination, but we will no longer ask for proof of vaccination at the door. We encourage and appreciate people wearing masks in the church building, but masks are no longer required.

We cannot entirely remove Covid risk, but with falling cases, increasing vaccinations and boosters, and other markers, we feel it is safe to return to a more active and interactive congregational life.

Blessings to you,
Pastors Marci, Joann, and Victor

If I visited Calvary for the first time and had not been to a Presbyterian church before, I would want someone to help me understand what I was doing throughout the order of worship. This blog provides an example of how some churches annotate their bulletins so children, youth, and adults can learn more about why we choose to read, sing, pray, and listen at certain times during the worship service. Harvey Browne Memorial Presbyterian Church (www.hbpres.net) in Louisville, Kentucky offers a model of how to explain the order of worship. Being transparent about how we worship together is in line with our reformed tradition. We can read and interpret the Bible ourselves, as well as worship and say prayers with our own bodies. Many years ago, a priest would do all of this while the congregation sat or stood. It is important for parents to share with their children that all people have the freedom to contribute to a worship service. By singing, listening, praying, and sharing, we get to know each other and witness each other’s talents and inspiring work. Fellowship and education events are only part of the ways that we form our faith together. Participating in worship is what binds us together each Sunday, so that we can support each other at or outside of church during the week.

Aligning with Calvary’s existing work, the Matthew 25 church focal points are  Building Congregational Vitality, Dismantling Structural Racism, and Eradicating Systemic Poverty. 

Racial Equity Initiative

Calvary’s Racial Equity Initiative (REI) programs are designed to help us recognize and educate ourselves about systemic racism, to explore the unconscious bias in our own hearts and minds, and to promote discussion and understanding.
In accordance with Micah 6:8, Calvary is committed to the biblical teaching to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. Welcoming and walking with immigrants and refugees in our city has been a long-time commitment for our congregation, even before we became a sanctuary church in 2018.

Calvary Kids!

Do you ever wonder how you might be able to talk to your children and youth about faith and religion?
