Shutterbug Club

Shutterbug is a social group.  We welcome and encourage photographers of all ages and levels of expertise to have a little fun taking pictures. There are no official members. Meetings are usually on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Wesley Room at church. At each meeting with give ourselves an assignment for the next month, (i.e. for October 2012 the assignment is photos of “working wheels.”). Participants can then choose to share their photos at the upcoming meeting. Anyone who enjoys photography is welcome, including beginners!

Overeaters Anonymous

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers hope and support to anyone who suffers from the disease of compulsive eating.  It is not a religious program, but a spiritual one.  OA offers physical, emotional, and spiritual healing from this three-fold disease through the practice of the Twelve Steps adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous, and by the loving acceptance and support of the fellowship.  There is a meeting at Calvary UMC – West Allis every Saturday at 9:30 AM.  Call the OA office at 414-259-0640 or go to for more information.

Knitters and Crocheters

The K&C Group meets every Monday afternoon in the John Wesley Room from 1:00-2:00. We work on both on-going and short-term projects.
Our on-going project is our Prayer Shawl Ministry. The yarn and directions for this project are available in the church office.
Our short-term projects change with the seasons. We could be working on seafarer caps and scarves; dish clothes and scrubbers; baby blankets sweaters or caps; hats, mitten and scarves for children and adults or other ideas that are brought to the group.

Get Involved with Calvary

There are so many ways to get involved with Calvary United Methodist Church of West Allis. While there are ecumenical groups like the Bell Choir, The Chancel Choir, the Finance Committee, UM Women, UM Men, etc. there are also many community oriented groups. Some examples are the Knitters and Crocheters, Volunteers for DePaul and Mt. Carmel Nursing Home, volunteers that help to keep our grounds landscaped and our church clean and decorated for the seasons.  We offer Summer School Bible Camp, an Overeaters Anonymous group, a photography group called the Shutterbug Group.  There are just so many ways to be a part of Calvary United Methodist Church.

Many find the more involved you are in a group, volunteer work or other activities, the more fulfilled you feel. Each month we supply a monthly calendar with the times and dates those groups meet.  Please contact our office for more information.
