Children’s Ministry

 

Our mission is to partner with parents and caregivers to help lead their children into a relationship with Jesus and to grow in their faith. Since no one has more potential to influence a child’s relationship with God than his or her caretakers, we want to support you as you integrate Biblical truths into your child(ren)’s everyday lives.

Our Sunday programming is designed specifically to reinforce truths about God in meaningful, developmentally-appropriate ways for your child.

Your First Visit

Our team wants to give your family an excellent experience!

When you arrive, our team will happily show you the way to the children and/or youth area. You’ll go to the first-time check-in station where you can tell us a little about your family to help us serve you well. During the check-in process parents will have the opportunity to make note of any special needs, developmentally or physically.

Each child will receive a name tag with a unique alphanumeric code that is changed each week that ensures we can contact families during service and children are returned to their rightful guardians after service.

To ensure safety, we perform a complete background check on anyone who serves with our children and youth. Serving teammates are trained on the policies in place to keep kids safe from check-in to check-out.

Calvary Kids Online Update

We are grateful for the technology that allowed our Calvary Kids team to connect with your kids through our months of church online, and we are so glad to be meeting in-person once again. To support our families who are unable to join for in-person Calvary Kids, video lessons and resources are still available here, our app and on Vimeo. Because many of our Calvary Kids leaders are in-person once again, the videos lessons will no longer include a teacher-directed portion. Your children will still see the content and characters they enjoy, and have the resources to help extend learning at home. We are praying for our community, and hope to see everyone together, once again.

 

 

Preschool (Age 3 – PK)

Our video-based curriculum captivates our pre-schoolers with Bible teaching, worship, and interactive lessons. Small group activities reinforce the lesson, and quality resources are sent home to foster more conversation.
