Ministry Focus

Calvary Kids & Students is a team united in ministry to kids from birth on through college-aged adulthood. A clear thread runs through this ministry – a desire for kids to know they are loved and cared for by God and by us.

We seek to create a space where kids and students know that they belong here, no matter how imperfect or unfinished they may feel. Our prayer is that as kids and students experience belonging, that they would get to know who God is and realize He’s worth following.

We are here for parents as well, ready to come alongside you with resources, to cheer you on and to hold the faith that God is working in your family. We pray for you regularly and would love to meet with you to get to know you better. Our hope is that you know you’re not alone. We want to walk with you in joyful celebration and painful sorrow. The Lord has walked with each of us through our own struggle, and we are here to be an encouragement through whatever season your family is in.

The following are resources each ministry is making available during this unique stay-at-home season.
