Feeding the Hungry in the World

        Saturday, Sept. 13, please come to Harris Hall to help prepare 10,000+ dry vacuum-packed meals. These will be shipped overseas to an area of need.

        We will have 2 shifts:

  • 9:30-10:30am and

  • 11:00am-12:00pm.

It's an assembly-line process of adding various dry ingredients and sealing them for shipment. No experience necessary! Please consider volunteering for one of these shifts.

We also need heavy lifters (50 lb. bags of food) at the following times: 8:15am, 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:00am, and 12:00pm. Why go to the gym when you can get a workout here? Please volunteer for one of these times if you are able.

Contact Nema at or Molly at to sign up. Thank you for your help.

Our Mission

Through worship, education, service and fellowship, we'll share with all people Christ's message of faith, hope and love.

Calvary United Methodist Church is located in Arlington, Virginia, near Crystal City. (directions) We invite you to join with us in exploring the extraordinary relationship possibilities that God has for us. You are invited to experience the transforming power of life-centered Biblical teaching and fellowship opportunities for people of all ages.

Our Vision

is to make God's love real, with Calvary's buildings and programs accessible and welcoming to all the persons and groups around.

We offer weekend and evening "overflow" parking on the far side of the Linden Resources  building (23rd Street), and behind the white building diagonally across 23rd Street from us.

We're on Facebook and Twitter!

Come find us on our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter!
