YOUTH MINISTRIES


Calvary is dedicated to raising children who love the Lord and who can grow to understand and begin to find their place as Christians in the world. Through worship, Bible study, service, and quality time spent together, we pray that our children will come to know Jesus and strive to follow him as they grow older and more aware of the world around them. Visitors are welcome to join us as we learn and grow together!

SUNDAYS


Children & Worship

Who: Children ages 3-4

When: Sunday mornings during worship service

Where: Takes place in room 307 (East side of the building, downstairs)

What: Partway through the worship service, following a special children’s message, preschoolers are invited to gather together to experience and praise God in an age-appropriate worship setting.
