Calvary is proud to offer a wide variety of activities and mission opportunities for children, in addition to the Children’s Sunday School program.
At Calvary, we are proud to do Children’s Church just a little bit different. Children in Kindergarten – 3rd Grade are invited to attend Children’s Church in our Chapel, after our Children’s Message. In the Chapel, we share a story related to the sermon being preached in “big church” and teach children different elements of traditional worship. After we’ve discussed the sermon, we have plenty of quiet activities the kids can work on while they listen to the rest of the church service together. We’ve discovered that children love being a part of worship. Providing this opportunity through Children’s Church helps them to learn about worship in a fun way. For Children that choose to stay in worship through the whole service, Children’s Bulletins are available at our Children’s Resource Center right outside of the sanctuary, where you can also find coloring books, pads of paper, and crayons.
Mission Possible Kids is a group of kids in grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade who are committed to shining God’s light in the world by helping others in any way we can. We work with Calvary’s Missions Team to help provide support for ongoing mission projects our church is involved in, especially Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Blessings in a Backpack and Mission Central. Mission Possible Kids meets one Sunday each month from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, and we come together prepared to work hard! Some of the missions we have participated in have been:
*Making Love Bags to be delivered to congregation members
*Making handmade cards to be delivered with Love Bags
*Helping our congregation fill backpacks with food for Blessings in a Backpack
*Breaking down large boxes for recycling for our Sleep In Heavenly Peace Ministry
*Collecting, inventorying and sorting donations of bedding and pillows for Sleep in Heavenly Peace
*Participating in a “Bed Build” for Sleep in Heavenly Peace (for our children 8 and older)
Meetings will start up again in September. For more information or to sign up, please contact AmyStone@calvaryumc.org. T-Shirts are also available for kids and adults.
