Ministry Focus

The heart of everything we do in 78 is relationships. We are passionate about providing students opportunities to build community with each other, with safe, trusted adults, and with God. None of us were created to live life alone. Life is messy and challenging at times, and we are committed to being a place where students are seen, known, loved, and cared for – as they are – by us and most importantly, by God.

If along this journey there is a specific need our team can meet for you and your family, please don’t hesitate to call or email us anytime. Whether it’s a time of prayer, a run for food and supplies, or financial support, we would be delighted to serve you and your family. We’re in this together! Contact us calvarystudents@calvarygr.org.

 

Sunday Morning

Our hope is that every 7th & 8th grader engages with the main service on Sunday mornings. Alongside that opportunity we offer classes on Sunday mornings in room 108. Our Sunday morning classes have been specially designed for parents to take WITH their seventh or eighth graders! In our classes we will focus on answering some big questions that our students might have, such as ‘How can I trust the Bible?’, ‘Who is God?’, ‘Who am I?’, “How can I be saved?”, and “What is the Church?”. Our hope is that both students and parents will be equipped with a stronger ability to understand their faith, and the truth of scripture through these classes. These interactive and fun courses will have projects that match each of our units, bringing a fun, hands on, and memorable experience that ends with a piece of artwork that will help us remember the truth we learn.
