Here at Calvary Bible Church, we believe in teaching children to know God and His Word from a very young age. We provide many opportunities for children to learn about God and Jesus!
The safety of our children is a priority, therefore all adults who work with children at CBC have been approved by both a pastor and an Elder, and have had a background check done.
Below is a description of some of our children's ministries. Please check the children's calendar for more details on times and rooms of our weekday activities.
Located off our foyer, and not far from the sanctuary, our infant and toddler nurseries are staffed by caring members of our church family and provide a safe environment for our youngest members while their parents are in Sunday Small Group or Worship Service. Our nurseries accommodate children aged newborn through 36 months.
We believe that one of the best ways to learn about God is with a caring group of fellow believers. To that end, we have Sunday Small Groups for all ages, including age-appropriate groups for ages 2 years through 5th grade. In these groups, children learn about God's Word, do crafts, and share prayer requests. Children are also welcome to attend any Sunday Small Group with a parent.
During our Sunday morning Worship Service, we have our Elevate program for children age 3 years through 3rd grade. These children, who are too old for the nursery, start out in the Worship Service with their parents. Before the sermon, the children are dismissed and their parents take them to the foyer to meet their Elevate teachers. The teachers take them in groups to their classrooms, where they learn to worship God. After the Worship Service, parents are asked to pick their children up from the Elevate classrooms.
The 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month are a busy time at CBC! The following children's groups meet at the church from 7:00 to 8:30 PM during the school year.
Faith Girlz is a fun Bible Study for all girls in 1st through 3rd grades. The girls study God's Word, build relationships, and do fun activities.
Girls of Grace is a fun group for all girls in 4th and 5th grades. The girls learn about God's Word and build relationships with each other and with godly teachers.
Word of Life Boys Club is a fun group for boys in grades 1 through 5 and their fathers. The boys and their fathers study God's Word, and do crafts and other fun activities.
