History and Staff

Calvert Memorial Presbyterian Church was founded in 1868 and located at the intersection of Bridge and Freeport Streets. The first pastor, Rev. Alexander Calvert was loved by the church and the community because he welcomed everyone. After his sudden death, the church was named for him. As the congregation grew, they hoped for a new location. The current church building on High Street was built and then dedicated on November 21, 1909. With the celebration of the 90th Anniversary on November 21, 1999, Calvert Memorial had the Rededication of Our Church and Ourselves to God. Many attended to share memories and express hope for the future. The mission of Calvert Memorial is to love Jesus Christ through service to the people in our neighborhood and the surrounding communities. By loving our neighbors as we love ourselves, Calvert hopes to be a vital source of love and hope for the community.

We at Calvert Memorial Presbyterian Church like to think of ourselves as a 'church family' that cares about everybody. People of all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate in the life of the congregation.

Reverend Donn Ed

Who We Are...

Congregational means governed by the members of the congregation a practice that goes all the way back to the earliest Christians. Our church history in America begins with the Pilgrims. They believed that each person should be able to read and understand the Bible and follow Christ according to his or her conscience. As a covenanted community, we gather to worship, to learn, to explore, to share, to pray, to have fun, to serve, and to express the creative spirit we have from God and the love shown in Christ.

The First Congregational Church of Etna was gathered in 1849 when Etna was a cluster of hamlets. Our present brick building with its second floor sanctuary (accessible by chair lift) was built in 1880. As the oldest church in Etna, we have a long„standing commitment to accept people with many different backgrounds and faith experiences.  

Everyone welcome- is not just a phrase „ it is our philosophy and we invite you to all of the services and programs of this church.
