About Calvary
CCCC brings our community together as friends, teachers, and leaders. Good things happen here.

The Calvary Center for Culture and Community (CCCC) is part of the active community housed in the landmark 1906 Calvary United Methodist Church building at 48th & Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia. The Calvary Building, congregation, and Center serve over 5,000 community members yearly, acting as the “town hall” for one of the nation’s most vibrant and diverse communities.

The Calvary Building is home to the local community association, refugee groups, Twelve Step programs, the historic preservation society, art and cultural activities,peace and social justice organizations, educational classes, and several religious congregations.

Once a beacon for all of West Philadelphia, the church building fell into serious disrepair over the past three decades. To keep the doors open to all members of the community, and to continue supporting the many social and cultural programs taking place here, CCCC is raising $2 million to restore the Calvary church building. With your support, West Philadelphia’s beacon of hope will continue to bring community members together for another hundred years.
