Children’s Ministry

Sunday School Building

When: Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and 11:00 am

Welcome to Calvary Chapel Children’s Ministry where we teach children to:

KNOW, OBEY, AND DEFEND GOD’S WORD.

Our team takes seriously the opportunity we have to come along side parents in teaching the Bible to their children. We believe when a child learns the Bible at an early age it will never leave them. They may walk away from faith but faith will never leave them. They can always come back once they have learned God’s Word.

We have classes at 9 AM & 11 AM on Sunday morning for all children (0 – 5th grade).

“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. “

— Proverbs 22:6

Your First Visit

Please come 10 minutes early to get your children signed into Lambs List. One of our volunteers will direct you to the classroom where you will pick your child up.

Nursery

Linda Respicio, our coordinator will make sure your young child is well cared for by a team of volunteers. Linda will help you in moving your child from the nursery to the toddler room at the best time, usually around 18 months.

Toddler/ Preschool Class

Our team provides an age-appropriate environment where we are flexible to the needs of young children. We are very excited about our Bible Curriculum, “Perfecting Little Saints” by Colleen Glatz. This curriculum is written especially for young children providing time for creative play, snacks, Bible, table Activities and worship.

Young ones learn one topic a month:

  • God Made People, God Made Me
  • God is Our Helper, God Made Birds and Sea Creatures
  • God Made the Animals and Insects (even worms)
  • God Made the Water and Sky
  • We Should Say Thank You to God
  • The Birth of Jesus
  • Jesus Grew
  • Jesus is Special, He Gives Us Friends
  • and Jesus can do things no one else can do.
Kindergarten/Grade School

Children in Kindergarten through Fifth grade are using Answers Bible Curriculum which is a three-year program that covers the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, in chronological fashion. Lessons include apologetics material confirming the accuracy of the Biblical record, as well as historical background and life application.

Students are promoted to the next class in June.

Special Needs

Our Uniquely Special Ministry, located in the Little House on the East side of the church property, is for children who benefit in an environment with fewer distractions and may require a shadow. We love to have your child and are excited to have a place for them where they can feel comfortable and not be overly stimulated. We have a family profile form for you to fill out so that we can meet the specific needs of your child. See the Special Needs tab for more information.

Volunteer Experiences in Children’s Ministry

We believe serving in ministry is a privilege and an important part of being a part of the fellowship. We believe every Christian is given Spiritual Gifts and talents to use in serving.

In order to provide a secure environment, we require a background check, references, and orientation for everyone prior to serving.

After you attend our fellowship for 6 months you can pick up the ministry application at the Plugged In counter in the church lobby. You will be contacted by our volunteer coordinator, Lori T. to help determine the best place for you to serve based on your gifts.
