Children and youth are an integral part of Calvary. From participation in worship with a children’s message during our Time With Young Disciples to Christ-centered learning and activities, our children and youth support each other in a safe, loving environment and build lasting friendships — there’s always a strong connection to be made here.
Using Growing in Grace and Gratitude, a curriculum rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity where God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship, children will receive an invitation to discipleship through the reading of Bible stories, fun activities, prayer and singing. This curriculum inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love; and reaches beyond Sunday morning, encouraging children to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace.
Directly following class, children may stay for Children’s Choir rehearsal.
Children age 3 and under are welcome to enjoy some simple activities in the Nursery Room during the Sunday Morning Christian Education hour.
Youth Study Group
Students in grades 6-12 are invited to the third floor youth room every Sunday from 9:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. for lessons from Presby Youth curriculum. This curriculum provides creative activities and discussion points related to a variety of biblical topics and stories.
New or veteran, our doors are open to you on Sunday evenings! We hope you find this relaxed evening atmosphere to be a place where you feel welcomed and accepted into an engaging community, comfortable to explore your faith, released to discover and use your talents to serve, and free to have FUN!
Fun Family Events
Periodic events such as caroling, hayrides, movie nights, special trips, or picnics are planned with our families in mind. We always welcome newcomers to join us in these casual fellowship activities.
The Chancel choir invites high school students to participate. An uplifting opportunity to raise voices to the glory of God! All adults and high school students may join. No experience necessary! More information is available on our music ministry page.

Parents’ Night Out
Parents’ Night Out is not only an opportunity for parents to enjoy adult-only time with each other or friends, it is also a wonderful opportunity for the children of our church to join together as friends for an evening of fun. Children age 3 through grade 5 are entertained with a variety of activities including games, crafts and a theme-related movie. In addition, dinner is always served. Registration is required so watch for announcements!
(June through August – Worship time changes to 10:00 a.m. There are no classes for children and youth nor Choir activities.)
