What We Believe

“Building Community in the Spirit of Jesus”
Calvary, Columbia, is a theologically aware, caring, life-changing community of faith, inspired by the person, the

Saturday Café To-Go!

At the Saturday Café volunteers provide a delicious, homecooked meal to those in need in our community every Saturday from 8:00 AM-9:00 AM during the months of July, August, and September.  In order to keep volunteers and guests safe, the Café will be implementing a physical distancing plan. Guests will receive a “to-go” breakfast bag instead of eating in the parish hall. We will also observe limits on the number of volunteers inside the church and follow other safety precautions according to Diocese of Missouri guidelines.

We are an inclusive community.We welcome all whom God calls through our doors and seek to help them grow in their discipleship of Jesus Christ. We are a Biblical church. We are a sacramental church. We are a church that takes seriously the insights of modern science and learning. We seek to follow the age-old call of Jesus–”Come, follow me”–in a way that makes sense in the modern world.
