In June 2018, Calvary became the new home of the Tri-Town YMCA administrative offices, as well as a site for before and after school care and summer camp.
"Since 1985, the Tri-Town YMCA has been offering Y’s Kids Programs, a safe before and after school alternative, for children to attend, while their parents are at work or continuing their education. Our programs are available Monday – Friday, during the school year, to children who attend School Districts 44 and 45."
In September 2018, Calvary opened its doors to RENEW Church. RENEW is a non-denominational church plant led by Pastor Greg Armstrong. The congregation is young and racially diverse, and their worship style is very contemporary. Differences aside, we are all God's children, and Calvary has truly been blessed by this relationship.
Calvary Church is the recipient of a Becoming Beloved Community grant from the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago. This grant supports the commitment of Calvary and the larger Episcopal Church to racial healing, reconciliation and justice. Leaders from Calvary Episcopal Church, RENEW Church and Immigrant Solidarity DuPage came together to create The Courageous Love Initiative, the mission of which is to dismantle the powers of racism by creating platforms which promote genuine, loving relationships which inspire our community to remove the sinful chains of segregation.
This initiative is still in its infancy, but has been meeting to plan and organize retreats, bilingual worship services, the creation of social media platforms and more over the next year. All voices are important and welcomed to these meetings and events.
