Worship Care is provided for preschoolers, birth through age four, by our baby teachers, parents of preschoolers and other volunteers from our Calvary church family. Our five-year-olds attend worship with their parents and once each month participate in the Preschoolers Experiencing Worship (P.E.W) program following the children’s sermon at 11:00.
Childcare will be provided for preschoolers (birth through Kindergarten) in the preschool area, during all regularly scheduled organizations of the church. Childcare will also be provided for special church-wide activities, Bible studies and training events.
Mission Kids for Preschoolers (Mission Friends)
Mission Kids for Preschoolers is the church missions organization for three year olds through Kindergarten. Mission Friends provides hands-on missions learning experiences to help preschoolers move from a self-centered focus to a focus on others, to become aware that not everyone knows God’s love and to understand ways they can help others know of God’s love in their city, country, and around the world. Mission Friends meets during the school year.

9:45 am – 10:45 am Sunday
Sunday School is the basic Bible teaching program of our Children’s ministry. It is the backbone of all we do! We have a great time of Bible study with teachers who are prepared to help the children learn Bible stories, memorize Bible verses, know how to use their Bibles and discover that the Bible is their guide for Christian living. We believe learning the Bible can be fun! Our desire is to help the children learn God’s truth and help them apply it to their everyday lives. Elementary-aged children meet on the second floor of EB2 for Sunday School.
