Ministry Focus

In Calvary Kids we are “guiding children to trust and follow Christ…for the rest of their lives!” We strive to provide a safe, nurturing place for your children, birth through fourth grade, while you worship in the Sanctuary, serve around church and attend classes.

We offer two primary areas of programming: Calvary Kids Sunday Mornings and Kids-N-Action on Wednesday nights. See details in our events calendar below.

Check-In & Check-Out Procedures

On Sundays and Wednesdays, all children need to stop by the check-in area to print their name tags and then be escorted by a parent or guardian to the room number printed on their name tag. At the end of our ministry time, kids must be checked out by a parent or responsible guardian (high school age or older), bearing the claim tag that was issued upon check-in.

Special Needs

Special accommodations can be made for children with special needs. New to Calvary? Contact our Care Plan Coordinator, Betsy Nolan, so we can get to know you and your family.
