In the children's ministry at Calvary, we strive to teach children what it means to be loved by God, to love God, and to live in the way of Jesus.
All children from infants to sixth grade are invited to join us each Sunday morning for a time of age appropriate Bible study and fellowship. It is a time focused on learning more about God's love for us and God's presence with us. Children have the opportunity to fellowship with one another and get to know faithful teachers who desire to share Christ's love with them. Sunday school begins at 9:30am. See our Sunday school curriculum plan: Calvary_Children_Curriculum_Plan.pdf
Children and Worship
The Sunday morning worship service starts at 10:45am in the sanctuary. Children are always welcome in worship. They often take leadership roles, such as leading a prayer or reading Scripture. Our elementary children’s choirs sing in worship several times a year. We also provide special times for children in worship, including the children’s message and children’s blessing during Communion.
Children’s Worship Cart
We want to create space for children to be who they are in this place. The children’s worship cart includes worship resources and materials, art supplies, and children’s Bibles and storybooks to engage children during the worship service. Each Sunday, this worship cart is found in the back of the sanctuary for children to come in and get whatever they want to do during the service.
Extended Teaching Care
For infants through four years old, we offer a time of extended teaching care during the Sunday morning worship service. This is a time of care and ministry for Calvary's youngest children. Extended session begins at 10:30am and ends when the worship service concludes.
On Wednesday evenings during the school year, we have children’s activities for infants through sixth graders. The night begins with a fellowship meal for the whole family from 5:00-6:00pm. Children’s Missions and Choir meets from 5:45-7:00pm for first through sixth graders, and Pre-K and Kindergarten Choir meets from 5:45-6:45pm. Children’s Missions and Choir is a time of music, movement, and learning about missions. We also have childcare available from 5:45-8:00pm for Kindergarten and below.
