Currently, we are walking through a study of the Gospel, seeking to understand the full Biblical narrative and how we are a part of Gods plan for redemption. To hear the previous weeks sermons, please check out the teaching section of our website.
We are blessed each week to be led by a variety of worship leaders, all directed by Erick Cole. Jordan Frye, Billy Kappan, Regina Williams, Christina Marandola, Josh Cobia, Kendall Payne and Betsy Boyer Jones have all led their voices and used their gifts to lead us in worshipping God. To hear samples of our worship music or purchase a CD, please visit our music page.
We know what a precious gift your children are and we take the responsibility seriously. We have many great programs for your sons and daughters on Sunday mornings at Calvary. We encourage you to check out the pages for both Student Ministries and Children Ministries and to drop Shawn or Amy an email before you come. We look forward to connecting with you!
Middle School Students
High School Students
At Calvary our children are as important in the practice of worship as the rest of us. Therefore, we seek to love your kids in a safe, fun, and spiritually enriching environment. Given that we are blessed to have some of our children in both services, we have chosen to really enhance our time with them and provide very different experiences both hours.
Nursery (Ages 0 – 3)
For your littlest ones, we have a wonderfully safe and interactive environment. It is rich with opportunities to explore and grow while learning the truths of scripture. We focus on God and who he is using some of the great bible stories vivid with imagery and excitement. We have created hands on crafts and interactive lessons for the older kids to interact with the bible story and our wonderful staff and volunteers will be the hands and feet of Christ, teaching love and kindness to them. We are also blessed to have a “mommy and me” music teacher come into the room about once a month to run a special music class built on our favorite children’s songs and activities.
Preschool (Ages 3-5)
Your preschool aged children will be begging to come to this fun – filled hour of excellent bible training and fabulous interactive experiences. The morning always starts with wonderful pre activities ranging from a small craft to building with magnetic blocks on the light table. Then they will spend some time singing and hearing the bible story for the day taught in an engaging and creative way. Next they will have some time with “Pockets” our fabulous kangaroo puppet that helps them to personally relate to God’s word. We then end the day with another more hands on craft and yummy snack. Our goal is to teach the whole of scripture in an age appropriate and engaging manner while creating a comfortable and loving environment filled with lots of fun and heart. We can’t wait for your little one to join us in the fun!
Elementary (Grades K – 5th grade)
Calvary Kids is a place that your elementary aged student will LOVE! There is truly something for everyone. The morning starts with a choice of a high-energy game in the gym or a “quiet activity” in the children’s ministry room. After this fun time, there is a fantastic interactive worship time separated into a K-1 group and a 2nd – 5th grade group. The goal of our teaching is, in the words of C. S. Lewis “to go further up and further in” to the Word of God. Together we discover the rich truths of God’s love and plan of redemption and how each one of us fit’s into this plan! Students are challenged individually and are presented with new tools for growing and living a life of faith. The kids love the large group worship as well as the chance to get together in smaller groups and to interact with the lesson and learn how to put these truths into practice. The volunteers and leaders that run this area of the ministry are so excited about pouring out the love of Christ and ensuring that this time is a blessing for each child. Your elementary student will not want to miss!
Each of our ministry areas from nursery – elementary are staffed by interns and volunteers that have been fingerprinted and background checked to ensure your child’s safety!
