Newcomers

 

Welcome Newcomers!Calvary Episcopal Church welcomes you to our parish family.  Whether you are just passing through, living here for a limited time, have lived in Ashland for some time, or have recently moved here, there's space for you in the pews and a place for you in our community.

If you want to know more about us, this "Information for Newcomers" page is a good place to begin.  Throughout the year, we have a wide variety of classes for your spiritual growth, events that can give you a chance to both make friends and be of service to our church family and/or to our community.  There are opportunities for a one-time service and for making long term commitments.  Be sure to fill out a Visitor Card found in the pew rack in front of you.  That will put you on our mailing list for The Crucifer, our parish newsletter, and also give us the chance to deliver a Welcome Packet to your home that includes a lot of information about Calvary.

We hope you will soon feel at home with us, that you will find your questions answered and your needs met.  Don't hesitate to ask our clergy, staff, or members about anything that interests you.  Again I say, we're glad to have you!  Follow the links to find out more about:

Opportunities for OutreachPledging time to assist with ministries outside of our parish is a very meaningful way of returning some of God's goodness to us to others in need.  Calvary is active in ministries that have grown out of our church and also some that are a part of greater Ashland. Here are a few of the outreach projects Calvary members are involved in:

 

Magazine Ministry

Meals on Wheels

CAReS

Shelter of Hope

Community Kitchen

Angel Tree

 

Opportunities for Fun

Church isn't all about worship.  Meeting for fun and fellowship helps make our church a family.  Join something fun, and you will find that making new friends enhances your worship and study.  Join us for Parish Suppers, Hanging of the Greens in Advent, Fourth of July Picnic, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and other fellowship opportunities.
